Ultraviolet light is found in sunlight, but UV lamps are used for more than just tanning. Ultraviolet light has the power to disinfect, making it useful for sterilizing surgical equipment or helping to purify water without harmful chemicals. And today, you can have the power of UV light in your home, helping to clean up the air you breathe in each and every day.
UV light installation
If you install a UV light for air cleaning purposes, you’ll need the help of a qualified HVAC technician. An ultraviolet tube typically is installed within your heating and air conditioning system in order to clean up all of the air that passes through your system.
You can choose to purchase a Blue-Tube UV air purifier with a standalone light to kill microorganisms. Alternatively, there are many systems that combine ultraviolet light with electronic air cleaning or a whole-home filtration system.
UV air purifier effectiveness
Blue-Tube UV air purifiers are effective at killing off bacteria and viruses in the air. Proper installation is key to ensuring that the light reaches where it should and effectively kills off these organisms.
In addition, ultraviolet light can help to eliminate mold and mildew at the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil develops moisture as a result of the refrigeration process. This moisture should drain into a pipe beneath it, but the excess of moisture still allows for the growth of mold under the right conditions.
Mold is a major trigger for people with allergies or asthma, and it can cause illness in those without any preexisting symptoms too. Having a UV light in your air unit can help to protect your family members, so call a local HVAC technician today.
