Zap Indoor Bacteria With Home UV Lights
Did you know that sunlight is a natural air purifier? It’s true–ultraviolet rays help keep harmful substances like mold and bacteria from growing. Though you can’t bring those rays inside, you can replicate nature’s purification process by installing home UV lights to clean your indoor air. The Bryant® experts at ComfortAire Heating Cooling Plumbing are sharing everything you need to know about this technology below.
Why Do You Need Home UV Lights?
You might think the air inside your home is clean, but it can actually be two to five times dirtier than the air outside. This is because our homes are built to be airtight. Without proper circulation, cleaning, and purification, bacteria, mold, allergens, and odors in your home air can thrive, resulting in poor indoor air quality. This can lead to increased illness among your family members–and increased asthma and allergy symptoms for those afflicted.
That same mold and bacteria can accumulate on the coils of your heating and cooling systems, too. Even the smallest amount of buildup or growth can greatly affect the overall efficiency of your entire system. But with home UV lights, you can eliminate this buildup and keep your coils clean and working at peak performance–no maintenance required.
How Are Home UV Lights Installed?
These lights are installed in the ductwork of your central air conditioner, so you’ll never even know they’re there. They can be used in conjunction with another air cleaner or air purifier in your home, so you can ensure your home air is twice as clean!
Benefits of Home UV Lights
If you’re interested in UV lights, here are some health benefits to consider to help make your decision easier:
- Prevents airborne diseases and viruses by killing bacteria before they circulate to other rooms in the home.
- Soothes allergy symptoms by killing particles like pollen and mold, which might be affecting allergy sufferers in your home.
- Eliminates odors and smoke particles that result from cooking or other activities.
- Enhances indoor air quality and helps lessen dust accumulation on home surfaces.
You can sit back and relax knowing that those lights are running in the background and zapping every microbe they come into contact with, making your home as fresh and comfortable as ever.
