UV Light Air Filters: Why You Want to Upgrade This Summer

UV Light Air Filters

It’s warming up in the Lower Mainland. It’s a great time to get outdoors, but it’s also a time that homeowners face an uncomfortable truth: Their indoor air quality may be poorer than they thought. An innovative new technology is available to assist home and business owners in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby, and Langley in improving their air quality, decreasing mold and bacteria, and attacking allergies. The technology is UV light Air Purification Lights, and they may be a valuable new addition to your HVAC system.

How UV Air Purification Works

Scientists have long known that UV light has the ability to kill microorganisms by disrupting their DNA. This has made UV light an important tool in ensuring the safety of food, air, and water. Hospitals use UV light for control of tuberculosis. Recently, UV light technology has become available to the home or business owner who can use it to control mold and bacteria. UV light provides an alternative or adjunct to other types of filtration, such as electrostatic air filtration.

Advantages of UV Light Air Filters

UV light has many advantages to the homeowner:

  1. Eliminate odor: Your indoor air will smell fresh and clean with UV lights.
  2. Save on duct cleaning: Conscientious homeowners have their air ducts cleaned regularly — unless they have UV lights installed. These handy lights eliminate the need for periodic duct cleaning by keeping ducts clean and dust-free.
  3. Stop mold and bacteria from growing inside your air conditioner: There’s nothing worse than the moldy mildew smell of an air conditioner infested with mold and bacteria. UV lights keep these expensive pieces of equipment mold and bacteria-free.
  4. Kills germs, bacteria, viruses, mildew, and mold spores: Stop black mold and stachybotrys dead in its tracks, and create a healthy, sanitary environment.

Common Concerns

Sometimes homeowners shy away from UV lights because of common misconceptions. UV lights are not harmful, although you shouldn’t stare directly at the light. They don’t produce any ozone. That makes them a safe, green alternative.
