Fight Allergies in Alliance with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was originally used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to clean hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Alliance home’s environment healthier.
A UV lamp can disinfect HVAC systems and enhance the air quality in your Alliance home. It can wipe out mold, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens within 10 seconds of contact.
This can lead to relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid locations where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC equipment last longer, since they keep pieces clean.
Our Experts can recommend the equipment that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is upheld by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are installed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and run continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to eliminate the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as fast as 10 seconds, this powerful light blocks contaminants from spreading throughout your HVAC system and home.
Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in battling germs and mold.
In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to wipe out 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.
In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold levels in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.
A germicidal system can also neutralize smells and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not effective against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you use some precautions.
The sun lets off ultraviolet light, which has a lower wavelength than light you can detect. It’s responsible for causing painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can result in wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.
The type of light used in a germicidal system is stronger, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning manage installation and maintenance. You should never look right at the light or let bare skin to come into contact with it.
