Ultraviolet light purifiers are high-end systems that use short-wave UV light to counteract airborne microbes and pathogens. These air purifiers have UV lamps where air disinfection takes place through germicidal irradiation. Installing UV light air purification in your Hanahan, SC, home comes with many benefits.
Improves Overall Health in Your Home
Firstly, the air your HVAC system distributes indoors isn’t 100% free of contaminants. In fact, it may introduce pollutants to your home. That happens when microorganisms find their way to your system’s air ducts and coils.
Research has shown that UV light air purification systems kill approximately 90% of certain air contaminants. They can eradicate viruses, bacteria and other airborne pollutants. UV light is one of the most cost-effective solutions to keep your home free of contaminants and healthy for your family.
Keeps Your Home Smelling Clean and Fresh
Air pollution occurs when dusty or dirt particles linger around a specific area. The pollution often leads to some nasty odors that can make the indoors uninhabitable. UV air purifiers use an efficient air purification technology to neutralize any odor-triggering molecules in the air.
These air purification systems can neutralize cigarette odor, burning food smell and other common odors. It simply works to oxidize harmful compounds, making them harmless and odorless.
Needs Hardly Any Preventive Maintenance
Finally, standard air purification systems need yearly maintenance. Unlike filters and other HVAC components, UV light purification systems run on UV light.
These air purification systems don’t have filters or components that need regular cleaning or replacement. As long as the light bulb is working optimally, your UV light purifier will keep your home clean and fresh.
