How UV Lights Can Be A Key Player In Your Clean-Air Strategy

How UV Lights Can Be A Key Player In Your Clean-Air Strategy | Indoor Air Quality | Scoop.it
A Stepp Above Service Company's insight:
UV lights are one of the most efficient tools you can utilize in developing a clean-air strategy for your home. Indoor air is often more polluted than outdoor air, but with the aid of an ultraviolet light system, you can change that.

UV lights target the type of living contaminants found in your air that can do the most damage to your health. The light they emit contains low levels of UV radiation that immediately kills viruses, bacteria and fungi that are exposed to it. The light alters their DNA and prevents them from reproducing and spreading through your air system.

An HVAC specialist can help you install UV lights into your air system. They are set up so that the entire stream of air being circulated through your house gets exposed to the UV lights; this is what makes them so effective at purifying your indoor air.

UV lights are so efficient at preventing the spread of contagious diseases that they’re used in hospital air systems and waiting rooms to stop germs from spreading to other patients. Fortunately, UV lights are priced affordably enough for anyone to install them.

Homeowners interested in UV lights should know the limitations of this technology: They are not designed to cleanse your air of non-living pollutants like dust and pollen. But when they are used together with high-efficiency air filters, you can increase your indoor air quality tremendously.
