A UV air purifier uses UVC or ultraviolet light, which is typically blocked by the Earth’s atmosphere. It has a shorter wavelength than visible light or the UVA and UVB light that causes sunburns, and it can keep small organisms from reproducing by damaging their DNA.
There are two main types of UV air purifiers: a coil sterilization light attached to the coils inside of your HVAC system’s air handler and an air sterilization light installed in your home’s ductwork. Both types can increase the comfort of your Warner Robins, Georgia, home.
Enjoy Cleaner Air
All the air in your home passes through your HVAC system’s air handler and ductwork. A UV air purifier can keep many contaminants from spreading, and it can prevent odors caused by biological growth. A UV air cleaner can also keep small insects and microorganisms from damaging your ceilings, walls, floors and furniture.
Benefit From Better Health
UV air purifiers reduce the number of viruses and bacteria in your home’s air. As a result, they make colds and other illnesses less likely. They also prevent allergy and asthma symptoms caused by pest droppings and biological growth.
Run a More Efficient HVAC System
A UV air cleaner can make your heater or air conditioner more efficient by keeping airflow optimal. Without it, biological growth can clog your HVAC system’s air filter or ductwork. This forces your system to work harder and use more energy. It can also cause warm areas or drafty spots.
Have one of our professionals check your air conditioner before installing a UV light. That way, you can have any problems repaired and make sure your system can run at peak efficiency.
