Mold, viruses bacteria, mildew and fungi among other pathogens that affect human health and destroy property can find their way into enclosed spaces. Poor home insulation and air flow management contribute to increased levels of mold and fungi growth in enclosed spaces. UV lights emit radiation (ultraviolet radiation) that kills or disables mold, fungi, and most other microorganisms, in-effect purifying indoor air.
Homeowners can purchase UV lights and additional catalysts from from us directly, and our expert technicians can install them into most modern heating and cooling systems. Read on to learn more now!
What UV Lights Do For Your Indoor Air Quality
UV lights emit strong ultraviolet radiation that kills pathogens and destroys air pollutants.
Mold, bacteria, and mildew can grow in moist and insufficiently ventilated areas — such as ductwork — as well as on HVAC surfaces. UV lights are installed to beam UV rays into the air as it passes through your HVAC system on its way to the various rooms and spaces in the home or business.
High indoor air quality is not only important for the comfort of premises occupants, but also for their health. Mildew, spores, viruses, mold and bacteria can grow and circulate freely (compromising indoor air quality), and this can be detrimental to human and animal health.
In addition to the health problems that can be caused by the various organisms that can be circulating through your home via ductwork and the HVAC system itself, mold spores that are traveling through the air can also do damage to your home.
If you have ever had the unfortunate experience of having a mold problem in your home, you know that it can be very expensive for mold removal and abatement. By destroying the mold spores within the HVAC unit essentially ends the spores’ ability to circulate through the house; this means that if there are humidity problems or water leaks in the future, there will be less of a chance that mold spores can find that water and start growing.
