In-Duct Air Purification with UVC HVAC Systems


Incorporating Ultraviolet (UV) technology with HVAC systems provides many benefits by delivering clean and sterile air free from harmful contaminants.   In duct UV HVAC systems promote health and wellness by sterilizing the air and instantly eradicating harmful viruses, bacteria and airborne germs preventing the spread of disease from airborne microorganisms.  UV air purification systems can be incorporated into newly renovated or existing HVAC systems for clean and healthy air in residential and commercial settings.

UV air purification is used worldwide to eliminate bacteria, viruses, dust mites, mold spores, mildew and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air.  UV light purification includes ozone producing or non-ozone emitting UV germicidal lamps. UVC air purification lamps which emit ozone also eliminate odors in the air to prevent and remove stale or foul odors and delivering a clean and fresh scent free from contamination.

UVC HVAC systems are widely used in commercial settings where people are expected to be safe from contamination and especially in buildings where people may be suffering from an immune deficiency or other illnesses.  Hospitals, medical facilities, doctor’s offices and nursing homes especially benefit from providing clean air to their patients and visitors to help prevent the spread of disease and keep their patients as healthy as possible.

UV air purification is proven to be completely safe with no harmful byproducts.  UV air sterilization helps industrial operations to keep clean air especially in applications such as plastics and rubber manufacturing.  UV HVAC systems also help these industrial companies to meet strict air quality guidelines with an effective system which requires little to no maintenance.

Effectively Treat Psoriasis with UV Phototherapy Lamps

post 95

Psoriasis is a troubling skin condition where people suffer from mild, moderate to severe symptoms which include patches if itchy, red skin and dry, hardened lesions raised on the skin.  Many people try conventional treatments which include medication and topical ointments that provide relief to some patients with mild to moderate symptoms but may not be as effective for the more severe cases.  

UV light phototherapy is proven to be highly effective at treating and controlling symptoms of psoriasis, providing some relief to people suffering with this troubling skin condition.  Phototherapy lamps deliver Ultraviolet (UV) radiation at the optimum wavelength determined for therapy in both UVA and UVB wavelengths.

UV lamp phototherapy should be prescribed only by a physician with the right type of light therapy lamp.  Not all UV lamps are created equal and only a UV light therapy lamp designed to treat psoriasis will be effective.  Other types of lamps especially tanning beds may actually worsen symptoms.

UV Light Therapy Lamp for Psoriasis

UV light therapy lamps which effectively treat psoriasis may include both broad band and narrow band UV wavelengths.  The UVB narrow band lamps deliver a smaller range of UV exposure with either type of lamp imitating the sun’s natural healing efforts.  Both UVA and UVB technology may be combined for effective treatment, depending on your condition and your doctor’s orders.

When UVA light therapy lamps are used, a medication called psoralen is also used to enhance the effectiveness of the UVA exposure, which is why this treatment is commonly referred to as PUVA.  This is proven to be effective at slowing down the growth of excessive skin cells to provide relief from the raised, scaly patches of skin. In any light therapy treatment, consistency is key to receiving the desired results.  Some patients see relief in as little as a few weeks, while some others may take months to notice improvement.

UV therapy is also successful by killing bacteria in the skin which helps to clear skin for many patients.  Phototherapy is proven to be effective at treating acne for this reason, and many other skin conditions including vitiligo and eczema.  Light therapy is also proven treatment for different types of depression, not only seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
