Fight Allergies in West Palm Beach with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was initially used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sanitize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your West Palm Beach home’s environment cleaner.

A UV lamp can decontaminate HVAC systems and enhance the air quality in your West Palm Beach home. It can eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms within 10 seconds of contact.

This can bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid climates where mold and bacteria prosper. These lights may even help your HVAC system work longer, since they keep pieces clean.

Our Experts can suggest the system that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are placed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and operate all the time. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to eliminate the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as quickly as 10 seconds, this powerful light stops contaminants from spreading throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in combating germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to wipe out 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold levels in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.

A germicidal system can also take care of smells and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not useful against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is harmless as long as you take some preventive measures.

The sun emits ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can detect. It’s responsible for causing painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more powerful, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or let bare skin be exposed to it.
