What Can A UV Light Do For The Air You Breathe?

The holiday season is upon us! You’re busy making lists and checking them twice!

Top 3 Ways A UV Light Helps Indoor Air Quality

One product that works to effectively tackle unwanted contaminants present in the air inside a home is a UV light. A UV light uses ultraviolet light rays to combat indoor air pollutants leaving clean, pure air. 

For many years, this type of advanced technology has been employed in hospitals and other commercial operations for sterilization purposes. Fortunately, homeowners can now benefit from this technology with the use of a UV light installed within their own HVAC systems. Placed within the return air duct of your central heating and air system, UV lights work in conjunction with your system to circulate healthy indoor air, not just for the holidays but all year long!

1 – Eliminates Harmful Contaminants

UV lights have been shown to effectively eliminate harmful particles that are floating in your home’s air. They ultimately sanitize the air you breathe everyday by eradicating:

  • Mold and Mildew
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)
  • Fungi
  • Other Dangerous Contaminants

When these harmful things are removed from indoor air, the residents in a home enjoy clean, pure air free of pollutants and potentially harmful viruses. A UV light can help reduce poor health symptoms as well as help reduce the spread of colds and viruses, keeping all members of your household more protected against illness.

2 – Keeps Your System Running Well

When a UV light is installed in your heating and cooling system, it is placed in the return air vent. This positioning is critical, not only for immediately cleaning the air in your house, but also for the health of your system. The UV light effectively cleans the air coming through the ducts on the way to the HVAC unit. Cleaner air flowing to the system means a cleaner system. A cleaner system means a more efficient working unit. A more efficient working unit means you are more comfortable and paying less on your energy bills. A win – win – win situation!

3 – Improves The Smell And Conditions In A Home

A UV light eliminates pollutants and contaminants that cause bad odors, leaving pure, clean-smelling air for you and your family to breathe. In addition, the eradication of mold and mildew spores as well as other pollutants in the air keeps conditions in your home more pleasant and comfortable. And who doesn’t want a more comfortable home for the holidays?
