UV lights for HVAC systems have recently become a topic of conversation, and you’re likely curious as to how UV light air purification can help your Summerfield, FL, home. As a sterilizing agent, UV dates back to the 1800s, and people recently started using it again. Below are five benefits of UV light air purification.
1. Eliminates Odors
While some factors that lead to poor indoor air quality impact your health, other factors impact your senses instead. Some airborne contaminants have an odor that lingers in your home that can cause nausea or nose irritation. UV light air purification breaks down the molecules, so the odors no longer linger.
2. Improves Airflow
Over time, parts of your HVAC system become a breeding ground for germs and a collection area for dirt and pollutants. Your HVAC filter does a good job of preventing some of those contaminants from impacting your indoor air quality. When your system has to work harder, this drives up your monthly bills.
3. Raises HVAC Efficiency
A cleaner system with excellent airflow increases the efficiency of your unit, which reduces energy costs. Not only do you save money with reduced energy bills, but your system also requires less maintenance as there’s less wear and tear.
4. Reduces Asthma and Allergy Triggers
Your HVAC filter traps some of the dust, bacterial growth and dust mites that make their way into your home, but what it misses can impact your health. A UV light air purification system reduces coughing, wheezing, sneezing and other asthma and allergy symptoms.
5. Reduces Illnesses
Asthma and allergy flareups aren’t the only things that a UV light air purifier reduces or prevents. A UV light breaks up dust molecules, cigarette smoke and soot that leads to respiratory illnesses. It also disrupts the RNA and DNA of bacteria, viruses, and fungi, killing these microorganisms before they thrive in your HVAC system.
