Mold and germs can grow in any HVAC system and travel through the air ducts. This is extremely concerning since it represents a hazard to the people who live there, especially those with breathing difficulties such as asthma.

UV radiation has been proven to be effective in the last 100 years in eliminating mold, viruses, and bacteria. UV lights are now widely used in hospitals, restaurants, and food retailers. You may get in touch with us right away if you’d want to discuss cleaning your HVAC system or adding germicidal UV lights. Our specialists will contact you as soon as feasible.

What is UV Light?

Skin cancer or hazardous radiation may be the first things that come to mind when you think about UltraViolet (UV) light. UV rays have a variety of properties, however, and their effects depend on the wavelength. Sun UV rays are made up of UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C radiation.

UV-C is a type of ultraviolet radiation that is highly effective at destroying germs since it damages their DNA. As a result, UV-C light is an extremely efficient form of air purification, sterilization, and disinfection. When installed in HVAC systems, UV lights will destroy and sterilize these pollutants to purify indoor air.

How UV Lights Improve Indoor Air Quality 

Both UV light and ionizing radiation can have a significant impact on the air quality in your home, as well as allergy reduction. This can result in enhanced health and wellness for family members.

The UV light used in HVAC purification systems can kill:

  • Viruses
  • Mould
  • Fungi
  • Bacteria

UV lights are a chemical-free method to eradicate, neutralize, and sterilize these pollutants as they pass through the HVAC unit. UV light is already being used in high-bacteria areas such as hospitals and clinics to keep surfaces clean and disinfected.

Is it necessary to use ultra-violet (UV) light if you already have a good air filter? While dust and pet hair are kept out of the air by air filters, they cannot catch tiny particles like disease-causing germs and viruses. As opposed to blocking particles from entering the air, UV lights destroy them immediately.

There are a few ways technicians can add UV lights to your HVAC system:

  • The most popular way is to use a UV light on your evaporating coil. This prevents mould and mildew from poisoning the air by preventing their formation. Because there is usually a lot of water in this area, the UV lamp destroys any developing mould.
  • Another choice is to place UV lights into the ductwork to thoroughly clean all of the air that goes through the HVAC system. With this method, the primary focus is on sanitizing rather than cleaning particular locations on the HVAC unit.

Before getting your UV lights installed, we recommend a thorough duct cleaning to keep the air clean from your unit to your event.
