UV Light Air Cleaners:  What do they do?:

  1. Remove potentially harmful viruses and bacteria, as well as odors from cooking or pets
  2. Helps improve overall air quality, comfort and HVAC efficiency in your home
  3. For both coil and air treatment
  4. An affordable solution for improving indoor air and protecting your equipment
  5. Zaps surface mold that can grow on cooling coils
  6. Kill airborne bacteria that can recirculate through your home
  7. Helps create a more energy efficient home

The Ultraviolet Air Purifier system is recommended for homes and families with:

  • Allergies
  • Concern for maintaining or improving energy efficiency
  • Air conditioning ductwork that needs frequent cleaning
  • A humid climate
  • A dry climate in winter where windows are closed
  • Odors caused by pets, cooking and other sources
Highly Effective – Eliminates up to 99.9% of mold spores in your system
Highly Efficient – Helps to maintain system efficiency and airflow, which saves money by not having to have your system coil cleaned as often

Safe – Sealed unit design and multiple interlocks prevent accidental contact with UV rays

UV light air cleaners kill up to 99.9% of existing mold, mildew and airborne viruses and will prevent them from ever growing again and spreading. By killing and preventing airborne contaminants you will be less susceptible to allergies, asthma, breathing problems, headaches, dizziness, neurological problems and other long-term health problems caused by mold, mildew and airbone viruses.  According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk. UV lights improve indoor air quality by sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air as it cycles through the central air system.

For over a century scientists have known about the germ-killing properties of UV-C light. Because this frequency of light is filtered out by the Earth's atmosphere microorganisms have no defense against it. It works by scrambling their DNA which prevents them from reproducing.  Ultraviolet (UV) light has been growing as part of the HVAC landscape for years, specifically within the IAQ arena. As the technology has evolved, organizations and associations have strived to prove its effectiveness through research and a series of studies.  One organization, ASHRAE, recently weighed in on the benefits of UV light by “recognizing the health benefits of UV-C as demonstrated by several studies. The technology is a potentially beneficial option that building owners should consider installing.”
