UV light systems can effectively keep your AC clean and improve the overall safety of your indoor air quality. Ultraviolet light has been used for over a hundred years for various purposes, many of which concern combating germs and diseases. With help from knowledgeable and trusted technicians, this is a simple and hassle-free installation which provides numerous benefits.

What Is A UV Light System And How Can It Help Keep Your Air Clean?

When installed in your home’s AC, UV light systems play an integral role in keeping the indoor air that you and your family breath clean and safe. AC units can be riddled with bacteria and mold that you might not even be aware of until it’s too late.

The subtype of ultraviolet light which is usually used in your AC is UVC light. We offer both single & dual bulb systems which emit a purple light and kill bacteria and mold.

An ultraviolet device is typically installed near the coils of your AC unit. This targets any fungal infections as air passes through the system, meaning that you are left with safe and trustworthy indoor air quality. Any microbes are killed before they reach the inside of your home.

Benefits Of UV Light Systems

Ultraviolet Light SystemsUV light bulbs in your home’s AC system are key to keeping the indoor air safe. You don’t need to worry about any sort of viruses, pathogens, and mold growth on the coil or anywhere else around the UV light. Ultraviolet light destroys microbes in your AC system. It can also be beneficial for other areas of your home such as water purification. Here, it acts in a similar way by killing viruses and bacteria without the use of harmful chemicals.

UV light systems have made an enormous difference in disease prevention and it helps individuals who suffer from respiratory problems. Poor air quality is dangerous for anyone, especially those who have trouble with breathing and lung health. UV installations do not only help those who have these conditions. They can also prevent any negative long-term effects on your respiratory system and can keep colds and flu at bay.

UV devices don’t only keep you functioning at your best. They can improve the performance and lifespan of your AC unit. By ensuring that the inside of the AC stays clean and free of organic growths, you are also preventing the need for constant maintenance and repairs. The lights themselves don’t require any maintenance. With this system in place, your AC works like new. You can prevent any build-up in the ducts which would have strained your AC and made it work harder. This means a longer-lasting AC and reduced electricity bills as the AC is functioning optimally. Speaking of prevention, UV light systems also stop the development of future potential organic growth. Over the years, any sort of build-up compromises the condition and performance of your AC system which would mean more repairs and greater energy use. But with the right system in place, you can be sure that the AC and the resulting indoor air are of a high standard.

By killing biological growths, you have peace of mind that there is no buildup of mold and other contaminants. UV lighting removes viruses and bacteria that air cleaners and air purifiers don’t manage to kill.

The inside of your air conditioner can be a dangerous place ripe with viruses and bacteria. But with the useful and important addition of UV lighting, you can take a deep, relaxing breath knowing that the air quality in your home is protected from these dangerous factors.
