Indoor Air Quality
UV Air Purifier Systems in Albuquerque & Santa Fe, NM
As you may or may not know, the average home’s indoor air quality leaves much to be desired. Millions and millions of microscopic contaminants are floating around in your air supply, and with every breath you take you inhale a few of them. Some of them, like dust and pollen, are just allergens and lung irritants. Inhaling these will give you an allergy attack at worst, which is unpleasant but not dangerous. Some contaminants, however, pose more of a threat.
Mold, viruses, and bacteria are also common airborne contaminants, which can have a much more adverse effect on your health if they manage to infect you. Common viruses and bacteria can cause illnesses like the common cold or flu. Mold, however, can be much more dangerous. Certain types of mold spores have been known to cause life–threatening medical conditions if humans are exposed to them. In order to combat these more dangerous airborne contaminants in your home, you’re going to need a UV air purifier. If you have any questions, or would like to set up an appointment, call Roadrunner Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing today.

What Is a UV Air Purifier?
A UV air purifier, also called a UV germicidal light, is essentially a lightbulb that gives off ultraviolet radiation. What use is a lightbulb that gives off ultraviolet radiation? Well, the majority of germs and mold spores found inside the home are very vulnerable to ultraviolet light. Too much exposure to ultraviolet light will destroy the cellular processes that allow these organisms to reproduce, and often will kill them outright. This is why they tend to prosper inside homes, where the ultraviolet rays from the sun have trouble reaching. The concentrated rays from the UV light will sterilize your air by killing most of the infectious organisms in it.
We Install UV Air Purifiers
While UV radiation is not harmful to humans in small amounts, prolonged exposure isn’t really recommended. For this reason, a UV air purifier is often installed in the ductwork of the home. This both allows it to treat all air being circulated throughout the home, and prevents the residents in the home from being overexposed to UV light. In order to be installed properly, the light will need to be located in the part of the ducts where it can treat all air passing through them. It will also need to be wired into the home’s electrical grid. For these reasons, you’re definitely going to want a professional to handle your UV air purifier installation. Give us a call, and we’ll make sure that your UV air purifier installation is done right the first time.
