If you’ve been suffering from allergies or you keep getting sick, it may be due to the indoor air quality (IAQ) of your home. Even if you are very tidy and keep a meticulous cleaning schedule, there are a number of nearly invisible pollutants and contaminants that populate the air every day that can cause adverse health effects.
An easy way to combat these irritants is to install a MERV 7 or higher media filter in your furnace to catch most of the contaminants while heating or cooling your home. A second way is to install a UV air cleaner, also called a UV germicidal lamp, in your HVAC system. Custom Aire recommends using a UV air cleaner as part of a comprehensive strategy for keeping your indoor air healthy.
Why You Should Use UV Lights to Purify the Air
Most HVAC systems use a media filter to trap pollutants. While this helps clean the air, the filters typically do not kill microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses. When you combine a traditional media filter with UV light, you’ll be able to eliminate the organisms entirely and keep them from returning to your home.
A UV air cleaner for your home’s HVAC system is equipped with a powerful UV-C light that is designed to purify the air as it flows past. The ultraviolet light destroys nearly invisible particulates in the air, such as mold spores, viruses, chemical vapors and unpleasant odors, like cigarette smoke. By reducing the toxicity of the air, the UV light will help improve the indoor air quality of your home.
