Most people are surprised to learn that there are many different types of air filtration and cleaning devices. Different systems target different types of indoor air pollutants, so you need all the facts to pick the right system for your home.
Some air filtration devices are designed to eliminate allergens and mold, while others are much more efficient at reducing dust. But if you are concerned with germs and other microorganism circulating in your home’s air, UV germicidal lights are the air purification equipment that you want.
UV germicidal lights can be integrated into your heating and cooling system to kill harmful microbes that make their way into your home. Our UV germicidal light installation experts will be able to quickly add this equipment to your existing system so you can start benefitting from the healthy, germ free air as soon as possible.
Why You Need UV Germicidal Lights
If you have a new, energy efficient home, it’s probably a pretty well–sealed structure. While this makes your home much more energy efficient, it also can trap bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants inside. Since you don’t have a lot a leaks and drafts in your home, there isn’t a lot of air exchange between the inside and outside of your home. Proper ventilation and air purification is an important part of new HVAC systems so you can keep your home energy efficient while maintaining good indoor air quality.
Eliminate Biological Contaminants
Biological contaminants are a problem for many home filtration systems. Since they are small and spread fast, many air filters will not remove them from the air. However, UV germicidal lights can quickly and effectively eliminate most biological contaminants.
UV germicidal lights combined with an electric air cleaner can remove most pollutants from your indoor air. This is especially important for people will allergies or asthma, so talk to the professional technicians at Rineair who have years of experience with UV germicidal light installation if you want to improve the indoor air quality in your home.
Keep Your Heating System Functioning Effectively
Biological contaminants as well as other pollutants can not only make your indoor air unhealthy, they can also prevent your heating system working efficiently. Dust, bacteria, and other contaminants collect in your heating system, making it work harder to provide the same amount of heat. Anything that reduces air flow is bad for your HVAC system, so a well maintained air cleaning system should be a priority for many homes.
UV Light Bulb Replacement
UV lights require little maintenance to continue to kill viruses and bacteria in your air. The only task that you will need to do is replace the UV bulbs once a year. Your local UV germicidal light specialists will be able to do this job for you during your annual maintenance visit.
Since UV lights kill biological contaminants instead of filtering them, they don’t need to be cleaned or changed on a regular basis like an air filter. They can also work independently of your heating and cooling system, giving you year round protection.
UV germicidal lights are a great addition to any HVAC system. They will help keep your air clean and healthy, and require very little maintenance. If you are interested in adding UV germicidal lights to your home, give RineAir Heating & Air Conditioning a call today!
