UV lights can help reduced bacteria in the air

Most people are familiar with the lights used outside to zap pesky flies and mosquitoes, but not everyone knows about using ultraviolet lights to kill the “bugs” that make you sick inside your home. Let the pros at Gross Heating & Air Conditioning enlighten you and install UV lights to minimize your exposure to microorganisms that can cause colds, flus, mold growth, and infections.

How UV Lights Purify Indoor Air

To understand the disease-fighting power of UV lights, you first need to know what they are. On the light spectrum, ultraviolet light is the light between X-rays and Visible Infrared. That means it emits a charge that’s harmless to humans but powerful enough to attack and immobilize bacteria, viruses, mold, and other airborne germs at the cellular level. When installed in the cool, dark inner coils of your HVAC system, UV lights render germ cells incapable of reproducing so they quickly die off and leave you with cleaner, healthier air.

The Easiest Way to Clear the Air of Germs

UV lights are an effective, environmentally friendly, and chemical-free way to kill microorganisms in the air. In fact, UV lighting is used in settings such as hospitals and food service facilities where sterilized air is essential to human health. The good news is that bringing this same high level of indoor air quality to your home is simple and inexpensive. Gross Heating technicians can add UV lights to almost any existing heating or air conditioning system, and maintenance is as easy as changing the bulbs about once a year.

How UV Lights Deliver More, But Cost Less

Installing UV lights in your home comfort system is a true a win-win. You’re maximizing your indoor air quality by eliminating unwelcome germs, and also saving money. That’s because UV lights—by eliminating mold and mildew that can bog down a unit and cause odors—help your HVAC system run more efficiently. Not only can you reduce energy costs by as much as 25 percent, but think of all the money you’ll save on cold remedies, tissues, and even sick days.
