In a climate like ours, central air and heat isn't a luxury - it's a necessity. Unfortunately there are times when the indoor air quality isn't what it should be. There's more than just air being circulated throughout a home or business. Nasty stuff like mold, mildew, viruses, bacteria, and other biological allergens are being circulated as well. In fact the cool, dark, damp recesses of an air circulating duct system make ideal homes for these organisms. HEPA air filters may capture these organisms, but they don't do anything to eliminate them.
Fortunately, there's a cheap and effective way to deal with this problem: UV light filters.
Ultraviolet (UV) light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength shorter than that of visible light. It's called ultraviolet because its spectrum consists of electromagnetic waves with frequencies higher than those that human eyes see as the color violet. Ultraviolet light possesses enough energy to break organic molecular bonds. Short-wave UV light sterilization can destroy DNA in living microorganisms and break down organic material found in indoor air. The light produced by UV lamps penetrates the cell walls of micro-organisms present in the air handling system and alters the DNA molecule causing cellular damage, either by sterilizing them, thereby preventing reproduction, or killing them outright. In hospitals, UV air disinfection has proven effective in reducing the spread of tuberculosis, measles, influenza, smallpox, and controlling infection in operating rooms.
Not only does UV light provide for a healthier environment, it saves time and money by destroying the mold and other contaminants that affect your air system's efficiency.
