Are you worried about what’s in your indoor air? A little dust may be a nuisance, but what about viruses and allergens that can make you miserable? Can you do anything to keep your air cleaner and your family healthy? Absolutely. Ultraviolet (UV) germicidal lamps can be attached to your home’s existing HVAC system to treat the air as it’s circulating. Want to know more? Heating Specialties of South Jersey has your answers.
How do UV lights work?
UV means “beyond violet” and applies to electromagnetic light waves with the shortest wavelengths. UV lights target the DNA and RNA of the bacteria, germs, mold, and fungi found within our homes, making it impossible for them to reproduce and leading to eventual cell death. When your Heating Specialties technician installs UV germicidal lamps in your home’s existing HVAC system, the light waves treat the air as it circulates. You can breathe easier, knowing you and your family are breathing clean, clear air.
What are the advantages of having UV germicidal lamps?
UV germicidal lamps are a potent partner in seeking clean indoor air. We like them because of the many benefits they carry:
UV lamps can destroy viruses and bacteria. Does someone in your home seem to catch every virus that’s going around? Do they then spread the crud to other family members? UV lamps may reduce the number of sick days for your family.
UV lamps target mold and mildew. Mold and mildew are found almost anywhere. In smaller quantities, they are essential to breaking down dead material and play a vital role in our environment. However, large numbers of mold and mildew spores can cause allergic symptoms like watery eyes, an itchy throat, and a runny nose. Certain molds may also lead to severe illnesses. UV lamps target mold and mildew spores before they have a chance to accumulate and cause problems.
UV lamps help you tackle the germ problem without introducing extra chemicals into the air. UV lamps do not require chemicals. Regarding your home’s indoor air quality, avoid using chemical cleaners.
UV lamps work within your existing HVAC system. If you want to add UV lamps to your home, you don’t have to worry about buying a new HVAC system. UV lamps can be added to your system and use your home’s ductwork to distribute clean air. However, UV light is a powerful light, so UV lamps must be installed by a trained technician.
