Ultraviolet Lights

Ultraviolet Lights

Zap airborne dirt & germs before they’re circulated in your home

According to the EPA, poor indoor air quality has a detrimental effect on people’s health, both at work and at home. Germicidal ultraviolet light has proven to be very effective and affordable for homeowners.

To combat indoor air pollution, people who suffer from asthma or allergies attempt to dust more, keep the windows closed and clean frequently–but their symptoms usually persist. One reason is the presence of airborne germs, their particles and byproducts – all allergen and asthma triggers. These microbial particles are huge factors in your home’s indoor air pollution problem.

The airborne germs adversely affect the indoor air quality as they are blown past the furnace or air conditioning filter and then circulated through ductwork and vents throughout your home. Ultraviolet light – or UVC – is recommended for hospitals, labs, food processing plants and other public facilities concerned with the indoor air quality as a health factor. UV was incorporated in The Facilities Standards for the Public Buildings by the U. S. General Services Administration Office of the Chief Architect.

Numerous health studies have shown that germicidal ultraviolet light – UVC – is very effective against mold, mildew, fungi and viruses, bacteria and spores by breaking down their DNA or RNA. UV light can play a great role in secondary allergy prevention especially where airborne allergens are concerned. Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation – UVGI is the use of short UV waves, known as UVC, which has been proven to kill or inactivate tuberculosis in indoor air.
