HVAC UV Lights to Remove Harmful Germs
Worried about your home’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)? Does your air quality seem to get worse in the autumn and winter? Climatech Air Inc. suggests you install an HVAC UV light to help fight against bacteria, germs, and also other harmful particulates. Many homeowners have heard of using UV lights to manage IAQ. But you want to know if they actually work. We’re here to help you learn about the science behind using UV lights, the options available, and their benefits.
The Science Behind Using HVAC UV Lights
For more than 100 years, UV lights have been used to kill off mold, viruses, bacteria, and also other harmful particulates. They are used in hospitals, grocery stores, restaurants, and also other businesses to sterilize equipment and the air. Studies indicate that UV lights are highly effective in killing bacteria and other germs. In addition, studies have also shown that UV lights located within an HVAC system can kill off harmful particulates.
Who Benefits from Using HVAC UV Lights?
Many people young and old can benefit from HVAC UV Lights. Consider installing them if you or your family suffers from:
- Indoor Allergies
- Seasonal Allergies
- A Compromised Immune System
Different Types of HVAC UV Lights
There are two kinds of UV lights that are used in residential HVAC systems: coil purifying lights and also air purifying lights. You may hear several different terms used to refer to these lights: sterilizing, sanitizing, cleaning, etc. However, all residential HVAC UV lights fall into one of these two categories.
Coil Purifying UV Lights
Purifying coil lights are the most popular choice for homeowners. Coil sterilizing UV lights are installed near your HVAC’s indoor evaporator coil. Their sole purpose is to keep the HVAC’s coils free of bacteria and also mold. Coil cleaning UV lights stay on and they continuously protect your HVAC system and also your home from mold and bacteria.
Air Purifying UV Lights
The design of air purifying UV lights kills bacteria and also other particulates in the air. Air sterilizing UV lights are installed within your air ducts and therefore only come on when your HVAC system turns on. These UV lights clean the air as it passes through your system. This means harmful particulates are killed off before they can enter your home.
Additional Benefits of Installing HVAC UV Lights
Other than improving your home’s IAQ, installing HVAC UV lights can also have several other benefits. Some of them include:
- Improved airflow
- Fresh-smelling air
- Reduced monthly bills
- Increased energy-efficiency
