Heating, venting, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems continually circulate air in homes, offices, and commercial properties like hospitals and schools. HVAC systems provide the extremely important function of providing heat, air conditioning and improving indoor air quality, although they can also spread of airborne contaminants, odor and illness. HVAC UV light systems help to improve indoor air quality, equipment efficiency and can provide many additional benefits.
HVAC UV Lights Improve Indoor Air Quality
Ultraviolet (UV) lights designed to emit wavelengths in the UVC range, specifically at 254 nm, are known to quickly kill viruses, bacteria and many other contaminants including mold, mildew, and fungi. UV radiation has been used for decades in applications like healthcare and hospitals and is endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC, as an effective way to combat the spread of tuberculosis and other airborne illnesses. UV light is proven effective in killing many types of microorganisms including antibiotic-resistant superbugs like MRSA that can linger in patient hospital rooms after discharge.
The inside of HVAC units are dark and damp, the ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow. UV lights positioned to eliminate the growth of mold and mildew inside equipment improves the air quality by not spreading mold spores and fungi and also improves efficient operation of equipment. Several studies have shown that UV lights in HVAC systems help to prevent symptoms in people with mold induced asthma and respiratory illness.
HVAC UV Lights Improve Equipment Efficiency
HVAC UV lights improve efficient operation by keeping equipment clean and free from mold and mildew. This reduces maintenance expenses and allows equipment to operate much more efficiently. UVC lamps also eliminate foul odor and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which are also known to cause illness and throat, nose, and eye irritation.
HVAC UV lights improve indoor air quality and efficient equipment operation as well as these many additional benefits:
- Kills airborne microorganisms including bacteria and virusesliminates contaminants, allergens such as mold, mildew, and fungi
- Eliminates foul order and volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
- Improves efficient operation of HVAC systems
- Reduces required HVAC maintenance
