Shining the UV Light on Germs


 

 

“Fungal contamination of air-handling units (AHUs) is a widespread phenomenon in buildings with central heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems, and is a potential source of contamination for occupied spaces,” says the US National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.

 

Didn’t know your home comfort system could be harboring all that nastiness, did you?

 

Luckily studies have proven the effectiveness of UV light in killing mold, bacteria and viruses. “In 2012, Researchers at Duke University Medical Center used ultraviolet radiation (UV-C) to nearly eliminate drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms, reducing the number of bacteria by more than 97%.”

 

Even luckier?

 

UV lights installed into home heating and cooling systems disinfect indoor breathing air 24 hours a day without harmful chemicals or sprays, which keeps systems clean and our customers in good health. Ultraviolet lights are designed to work in newer systems, but can work in older systems as well.

 

Better air quality means a healthier, longer life, and when the Environmental Protection Agency ranks poor indoor air quality as a Top 5 Risk to Public Health, we know it’s worth taking seriously.

 

With a five-year limited warranty or an available extended warranty, UV Lights can be a great addition to your home comfort system.
