Your family’s health and wellbeing is your number one priority. Of course, it’s tough for you to control everything that may affect their health, but you might be surprised that some amount of germs in the air can be stopped.
Adding UV lights to your HVAC system protects you and your family members from illness. Learn more about this important home fixture below, and call qualified local HVAC technicians for installation or service today.
What Does UV Light Protect Your Home From?
UV lights in the HVAC system clean your air of microorganisms. A microorganism is a very small, microscopic living thing, like bacteria or a virus. These germs have a way of multiplying quickly and attacking your immune system.
When your air conditioner or heater is running, it constantly sucks in air from around the home and redistributes that air after it is cooled or heated. And while it passes through a filter first, many germs are just small enough to pass through the filter media and recirculate in your home.
That’s where UV light comes in. Ultraviolet light naturally kills and sterilizes germs. Once they move through the light, bacteria and other microorganisms are no longer harmful for you to breathe in, since they can no longer multiply.
Who Can Install Your UV Lights?
Make sure that you have a qualified air conditioning and heating technician install your indoor air quality equipment. Technicians will ensure that the UV light does not get in the way of airflow and that the bulb is functioning properly. In addition, they can provide you with valuable maintenance information and make sure that you know how to take care of the equipment. After installation, you may notice fewer instances of illness amongst family members—something we all want!
