Fight Allergies in West Palm Beach with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was first used to treat tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to clean 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 disinfect HVAC systems and enhance the air quality in your West Palm Beach home. It can eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.
This can lead to relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid locations where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC system work longer, since they keep parts 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 put 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 strong light halts 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 amounts in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.
A germicidal system can also wipe out scents 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 lets off 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 stronger, 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 permit bare skin be exposed to it.
