UV Germicidal Lights Sanitize and Sterilize the Air In Your Home
Air filtration is a great way to boost indoor air quality in your home, but it is not all encompassing. There are pollutants which can make their way into your air which cannot simply be filtered out the way that dirt, dust and dander can be. Biological pollutants, including viruses and bacteria, require a more specialized approach. That is where UV germicidal lights come in. With UV germicidal lights, you can supplement your indoor air quality system to ensure a thorough, effective air cleaning performance. To learn more about UV germicidal lights, the way in which they operate, and whether or not they are something to consider for your home, call the IAQ professionals at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning today.
What Are UV Germicidal Lights?
UV (ultraviolet) lights are devices which are installed directly in your ductwork, typically near the air handler. The UV radiation they emit in small, safe quantities sterilizes the air that passes through the system, as it destroys biological pollutants such as viruse and bacteria. Because they destroy these pollutants rather than filtering them out, they make a great addition to your air filtration system. They are not a replacement for an air filter, though, as they do not filter out contaminants such as dirt, dust and other debris. If you are interested in UV germicidal lights, call a member of our team today.
