UV light disinfection is now widely used in hospitals and laboratories to sanitize instruments and work surfaces and to prevent the spread of potentially lethal airborne infectious diseases. The technology is used by the food industry to sterilize food before packaging and water treatment systems large and small now incorporate UV light as a chemical-free means of purification.
The Installation of a germicidal UV light inside your air handler inhibits the growth of mold, bacteria, viruses, germs and saves energy by allowing the system to operate more efficiently.
Because air passes repeatedly through your HVAC system (in fact many microbes like the cool dark damp interior of the system) this is the ideal place for germs to multiply and spread throughout the house.
A UV air purifier is able to intercept airborne pathogens and destroy them as they pass by. As air cycles through the system it passes by the UV light many times exposing and re-exposing airborne microbes to it's sterilizing effect. this has proven to be a safe, economical, chemical-free way to significantly remove airborne contaminants indoors.
