What is Whole Home Ultraviolet Air Purification And Does It Really Work?

UV technology has been used to disinfect water, surfaces, and the air you breathe. But, does it really improve indoor air quality?

Ultraviolet Air Purifiers

Ultraviolet or otherwise known as UV air purifiers use bulbs that emit UV-C energy that neutralizes harmful pathogens and microbes from within the air as well as on your evaporator coil. They are installed within the home’s ductwork and the air conditioner’s evaporator coil to treat the air flowing through the system, killing live matter and stopping its reproduction. The UV light neutralizes viruses, bacteria, and other Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) to reduce allergy-related health issues, respiratory issues, the health effects of short-term and long-term exposure to poor indoor air quality, and the transmission of illness throughout a household. When used and installed properly, UV air purifiers are safe for use in homes. The UV light is contained within the HVAC system, which eliminates the risk of exposure to UV rays. The UV light has been proven to inhibit the growth of and prevent the spread of mold and mildew from within the air conditioning system. UV air purifiers destroy their cells, which prevents reproduction and kills active spores.

UV Bulb Maintenance

UV air purifiers are very low maintenance. Only bulbs require replacement and are made to the last one to three years between changes, depending on the model. UV light air purifiers are energy efficient and the bulbs used require minimal energy consumption even with around-the-clock use.

Without proper HVAC air filtration and maintenance, parts break down faster, ultimately leading to high-cost and sometimes preventable repairs. The UV air purifiers addition to the HVAC system improves the overall efficiency of heating and air conditioning equipment for further savings.

For blub replacement, it is highly recommended to contact your UV Bulb installation experts due to their safety and product knowledge. Fresh Air Matters offers single and double-bulb UV light installation to help you inhibit the growth of microbes on your furnace coil and improve your indoor air quality by creating the fresh, purified indoor air you deserve to breathe.

Clean air is not only important but essential to us all. However, some might say that clean air is not possible these days due to the constant degradation and air pollution. Even the cleanest environments, rooms, and air contain invisible and sometimes visible particles and dirt that could be detrimental to your health or even aggravate already existing health issues. However, by using an in-duct active air purifier you can effectively remove these pollutants to provide a cleaner indoor environment.
