Do UV Lights Improve Your Overall IAQ?

Did you know that it has been proven that indoor air pollution is higher than outdoor air pollution? If you think about it, it makes sense. Your house is shut and sealed off everywhere to prevent air leakage from happening. As a result, airborne contaminants have no way of escaping from your home. This leads to your home becoming stuffy and contaminated. Outdoor air is continually cleansed by fresh air, the sun, and plant vegetation. Your home is a haven in which you and your family reside. So what can you do to cleanse the air inside of your home and promote better indoor air quality? We have an excellent solution for you! Join Clayton-Englewood Heating & Cooling as we talk about UV lights and their contribution to improving indoor air quality (IAQ).

What Are the Benefits Of Using UV Lights?

There are a few methods to filter the air more inside your home. So why choose UV lights? Well, there are various benefits as to why you should use UV lights. UV lights, short for ultraviolet lights, have been used for many years to disinfect many things. They’ve been used by medical facilities, food-processing factories, and as a treatment for water. But the use of UV lights is not limited to only commercial use. They can, of course, be utilized in residential homes as well. When you use UV lights in conjunction with your HVAC system, they can assist with reducing disease and airborne bacteria. As a result, this also dramatically lowers the chances for mildew and mold to grow. In addition, if you have anyone who suffers from a medical or respiratory condition in your home, UV lights can help relieve symptoms or triggers.

What Is the Installation Process For UV Lights?

It is always best to consult a licensed HVAC professional when considering the possibility of installing UV lights. There are a few factors that need to be considered before installation occurs, such as the size of your home and the layout. These play a part in how many UV bulbs your home needs and where they would best be placed. In addition, UV lights are generally installed inside your ductwork, so it can be a tedious process that requires precision and expertise. At Clayton-Englewood Heating & Cooling, all our technicians are NATE-certified and have years of accumulated experience. Feel free to contact us if you have any more questions!

What Is the Cleaning Process That Makes UV Lights So Successful?

UV lights have a 99.9% microbial reduction success rate that makes using them so popular. They function by zapping the contaminant with UV rays as the airflow passes through your ductwork to be circulated throughout your home. The UV lights attack and remove the contaminant’s molecular cell structure, thus taking away its ability to restore or reproduce itself. This method of UV rays attacking the infiltrator at its core is the reason behind the UV light’s high success rate. It’s an intriguing and effective method, for sure!

With our friendly and knowledgeable technicians, the installation process should not take more than a couple of hours. Still doubtful? UV light bulb maintenance is easy as the bulbs won’t need changing for 2-3 years. Fortunately, this service can be performed at your seasonal HVAC maintenance checks. Easy peasy!
