The ductwork in your home or business building might just be the roadway for distributing things such as allergens, debris and odors throughout the premises. . With the higher attention paid to air quality due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many people are asking us to install UV lights in their HVAC systems.
UV lights have been used for decades to fight pathogens and kill germs. They are also effective in preventing organic build up on HVAC coils and in ducts. Added benefits of a UV light system are improved air flow and improving the energy efficiency of your HVAC system.
An electronic air filter has been the standard for eliminating the spread of dust and allergens in the HVAC system. However, the best UV lights do a much better job of sterilizing and disinfecting the air in your home or building.
The two types of UV lights are coil sterilization and air sterilizing.
Air sterilizing lights will sterilize moving air and are installed in return air ducts. These lights are timed to go on when the air handler blower turns on.
A stick UV light which sterilizes the air handler coil is called a coil sterilizer. This light runs constantly and is the most popular type of UV light installed to date.
Our technicians are fully trained in the installation of both types of UV light systems for your HVAC equipment. Give us a call for a quote on adding this added layer of health protection to your system today.
