Fight Allergies in North America with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was originally used to treat tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your North America home’s environment healthier.

A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your North America home. It can wipe out mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.

This can lead to relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid climates where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC system work longer, since they keep pieces clean.

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are placed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and run constantly. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to eliminate the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as quickly as 10 seconds, this potent light blocks contaminants from spreading throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how effective UV light is in battling germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to wipe out 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold levels in a commercial office building’s HVAC unit.

A germicidal system can also take care of scents and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not effective against dust, which is best managed by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you use some preventive measures.

The sun lets off ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can see. It’s at fault for creating painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more powerful, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look straight into the light or permit bare skin to come into contact with it.
