UV Lights: A Good Weapon In The Fight Against Mold And Bacteria

Every time you take a breathe in your Fayetteville area home, there’s a good chance that you’re inhaling a number of dangerous pollutants. To help clear your air of microorganisms, consider installing UV lights that will work with your heating and cooling equipment. If someone in your household has respiratory issues, or you simply want to have the peace of mind of cleaner indoor air, ultraviolet lights might be perfect.

Working with your HVAC system to achieve greatness
UV lights would be mostly ineffective if it wasn’t for your HVAC system, which is imperative in the process of clearing your home of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, germs and mold spores. The high-intensity lights are installed at either the induct or evaporator coil, which keeps your family safely away from the rays.

Once your heating or cooling equipment has been turned on, the air inside your home is pulled into the ductwork, which distributes that air into other parts of your house once it’s been conditioned. When ultraviolet lights have been installed, the microorganisms are neutralized as they make their way through this ductwork, thereby ridding your air of the harmful particles.

How do UV lights work to get rid of pollutants?
As everyone knows, ultraviolet radiation can be harmful to humans, especially in large quantities. In some cases, too much exposure can lead to death by way of skin cancer. However, we have ways to protect ourselves that include clothing, sunglasses and sunscreen.

Microorganisms like bacteria and germs, on the other hand, have no way to protect themselves from the UV lights. The ultraviolet radiation works to destroy these pollutants by neutralizing their cells’ molecular bonds, effectively breaking them apart and killing them upon exposure. Although these lights might not reach every single particle, working with your home’s HVAC system can greatly reduce the number of microorganisms in your home.
