So, you have an HVAC Technician out to your home and they start telling you about the indoor air quality benefits of installing an ultraviolet light in your home’s HVAC system. You’re wondering, “How can shining a light in your ducts kill mold and viruses along with cooking smells and bacteria?”
Well, science proves that they are actually right and yes, it really can do just that! Turns out hospitals, NASA, hotels, airlines and many other facilities with a need for more sterile environments have used them for quite a while! The technology is simple: create ultra violet light like the sun does, in a place that never sees sunlight and all the aforementioned nasty elements die when they come in contact with it.
UV light has many other benefits as well. For instance, when it comes to keeping your home climate controlled without putting excess strain on your air conditioning system and furnace, airflow is one of the most important factors. As time goes on, debris builds up within your system, and although the air filter works to trap some of these particles, it can only do so much. Adding a UV light can give your system a serious boost, ensuring optimal airflow.
Aside from debris, did you know your evaporator coil (located in the furnace) has thousands of microorganisms living on it? Often, to remedy this, you might be required to run the system for an extended period of time to achieve the desired temperatures. UV lights on your coil help destroy the microorganisms that inhibit smooth airflow. Increased airflow will improve efficiency and decrease energy costs.
Considering that the average person spends the majority of their life inside their home, allergy sufferers will finally get some relief. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are all around us and include both human-made and naturally-occurring compounds.
VOCs have a direct impact on the quality on the air in your home, which means they have an impact on your health too. With the added benefits of a UV light, you can seriously reduce the number of VOCs in your home.
Air conditioning systems produce moisture from within. Over time, moisture can build up and clog the condensate drain line, causing damaged ceilings and the flooding of wood, carpeted, and tile floors. A UV light helps reduce moisture, which can in turn keep your condensate drain line from clogging.
