There are many ways to improve the air quality inside a home. Air filters are the most common, and in many situations all a house will need to remove the airborne contaminants floating through it is a professionally installed set of filters.
But filters have limitations. The more powerful filters that can stop small allergens, bacteria, viruses, and other microbes are usually a bad idea for a house. These filters have such thick weaves that they will cut off the airflow from a residential HVAC system—and that means no comfort and higher bills.
The Power of a UV Air Purifier
This is where a UV air purifier is a huge benefit. This purifier consists of a set of ultraviolet lamps that installers fix into the ventilation system. The UV radiation from the lamps is harmful to organic tissue, since it disrupts cellular functions that kills cells or renders them inert. A well-installed UV air purifier will eliminate all types of harmful bacteria, mold spores, and microorganisms.
Why This Is Beneficial
- No stress on the HVAC system: A UV air purifier works through lights, and that means there are no filters that can choke off the airflow from the HVAC system.
- No harmful chemicals: A standard way to deal with organic pollutants is to use chemical cleaners. But chemicals leave behind harmful residue, sometimes creating more problems than they solve. UV air purifiers leave no residue behind at all.
- Safe: Although ultraviolet radiation destroys organic tissues, the lights used in UV air purifiers are not powerful enough to hurt any of the people or pets in your house.
- Easy to maintain: Once UV lights are in place, they require little in the way of maintenance or repair. Aside from a healthier home life, you won’t even notice the UV air purifier is at work.
