Should you invest in an HVAC UV Light for your air conditioning system? The answer is yes, and here’s why-
Ultra Violet (UV) technology is an effective way to cleanse and purify irritants filtering through your home’s HVAC system.
Suffering from allergies and other forms of airborne pathogens are nothing new to Texans. Luckily, a powerful HVAC UV light can help alleviate some of those everyday irritants by eliminating bacteria and mold spores within your home.
We depend heavily on our air conditioning systems to keep us comfortable. But it’s easy to forget about microscopic allergens and air pollutants, especially within our homes, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there.
Indoor allergens like dust mites, pet dander, and mold (although virtually invisible) thrive on many common surfaces within our homes and may even cause discomfort as well as allergies.
Indoor allergens can be found airborne and eventually settle into common surfaces such as:
An HVAC UV light can help, here’s how-
Yes, you read correctly.
Because an HVAC UV light works to eliminate microorganisms that cause allergens and debris buildups within a home and HVAC system, it also improves the overall airflow and efficiency of your unit.
Airflow is an essential part of keeping your home comfortable by evenly circulating temperature-controlled air.
As debris gradually builds within your HVAC system, it has to work much harder to effectively cool your home and meet your unique comfort standards set by your thermostat.
When your air conditioner has to work harder (due to airflow restrictions), it affects not only your comfort but also your energy bill.
By eliminating irritating microorganisms and debris buildup with a UV light, you can breathe fresh air daily without straining your HVAC system.
Air conditioning systems play a significant role in our lives by keeping us cool and comfortable. However, it’s nearly impossible to keep the inside of an air conditioning system completely dry.
A humid air conditioning system, paired with Texas heat, creates a breeding ground for bacteria and mold.
HVAC UV lights will significantly reduce harmful microbes filtering through your air conditioner before becoming airborne and control your indoor air quality.
VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are carbon-based chemicals that exist in a gas form at room temperature. Although exposure could be potentially harmful, the chemicals are found in many everyday household products.
Common products that may contain VOCs include:
An HVAC UV lighting can reduce the amount and spread of VOCs, as well as their harmful effects.
If you or your family members are frequently sick with colds and flues, suffer from allergies, have asthma, or want to ensure that you are breathing in healthy air, consider investing in an HVAC UV light.
At Dave Lane’s Hi-Tech Mechanical, we offer a variety of UV lights designed to proactively purify your home’s air and significantly reduce the effects of allergens and bacteria.
