Take This One Inexpensive Step to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Do you have concerns about the biological contaminants that may be present in your indoor air? Things like mold, mildew, and other bio-hazards can wreak havoc on your health and the health of your family. The good news is, however, that there is one excellent tool that is used to fight these types of particles: the UV air purifier.

Also referred to as UV germicidal lights, these systems purify your air by destroying biological contaminants before they have the opportunity to develop and infiltrate your home. They work by emitting radiation in the form of UV-C rays. While completely harmless to humans and pets, they are deadly to biological contaminants.

The Benefits of UV Air Purifiers

UV air purifiers perform a dual action: they kill biological cells that can harm your home and your health, and they also destroy the DNA within those cells to keep them from replicating. As a result, UV air purifiers completely eliminate biological contaminants. These aren’t the only benefits! Keep reading to learn more.

  • A UV air purifier will improve your indoor air quality by removing pollutants from your HVAC system before they even reach your home’s interior.
  • Mold and bacteria will not be able to grow.
  • Odors that are typically caused by the growth of mold and mildew will be eliminated.
  • UV air purifiers can fit virtually anywhere, making them versatile. The most common placement for UV lights is within your vents and over the evaporator coils.

UV lights have many great benefits, but it’s important to know their limitations as well. They don’t capture airborne contaminants like a mechanical or electronic air cleaner does, and they don’t draw particles to them either. Biological contaminants are destroyed when exposed to an area of radiation. Be sure to supplement your home with alternative indoor air quality products and services to ensure true indoor air quality and comfort.
