UV Lights in Houston

Do you suffer from allergies, have pets, or want the peace of mind not to worry about mold growing within your HVAC system? Dave Lane's Hi-Tech Mechanical uses the power of ultraviolet light to make the air in your home healthier. It reacts with and destroys millions of bacteria, viruses, allergens, especially mold, in the air circulating through your HVAC system.

Why You Need UV Lights for HVAC

UV lights for HVAC are designed to kill such biologicals as bacteria, mold, and germs. These germs, mold growths, and bacteria can cause harm to your family and to you – especially with regards to promoting poor health and respiratory infections.

The Importance of UV Lights for HVAC System

Although UV lights cannot kill anything they are not directly shining on, you can still use it to kill all mold and other germs that are on or near your HVAC system. By so doing, these lights are effective at keeping these harmful germs off of your conditioning systems. If you don’t use the lights, your HVAC system will form a habitat for germs, mold, mildew, and bacteria (all of which pose a threat to your general health and wellbeing).

Proprietary UV Light System

The proprietary UV light system we sell at Dave Lane's Hi-Tech Mechanical has been tested over and over again, and found to be working. In particular, it is very effective at ensuring that the indoor air in your home is free of all allergens and germs that might cause harm to you and to your family.

Frequently Asked Questions

1What are UV lights used for?

UV lights are used for many purposes. Today, Hi-Tech uses these lights to destroy germs, bacteria, fungi, spores, mold, and viruses. Commercially, we have used the UV lights for HVAC in clean rooms, food processing plants, and hospitals to kill these germs instantly. The systems blanket air passage systems and the flow of air is directed between and over the lamps, ensuring that all air pollutants are effectively killed.

For residential applications, our UV lights for HVAC are effective and affordable. Since the light works cumulatively, the polluted air will be cleaned over time. The technology has therefore made it possible to clean indoor air cost-effectively and continuously.

2How does UV light work?

While UV lights for HVAC are great for killing air pollutants, you need to ensure that you have seal all air ducts, installed these ducts in the conditioned space, and ensured that they are all air-tight by sealing them off with mastic.

The UV lights for HVAC will control bacteria and mold, thereby reducing flues and colds. They also reduce odors and smells, and remove VOCs. More specifically, they are highly effective in humid climates by reducing the clogging in drain lines and conditioning units. They also reduce electricity costs, improve cooling efficiency, and ensure that your unit’s coil is clean.

3Is UV Light harmful?
UV light is sometimes harmful especially when you expose yourself to it for too long. Therefore, you need to ensure you don’t touch or look at the UV light bulb if it is on. Luckily, when you install the system into your HVAC unit, there will be no direct harmful exposure to you or to your family.
4What percentage of UV Light is blocked out by glass?
Normal glass, as that used in windows, is transparent to UV radiation (UV-A light) of about 300 nm. This transparency is relatively high, meaning that all UV-A light will still pass through the glass. However, all light below 300 nm (UV-C and UV-B) will be blocked out by glass.
