Living in total comfort is a goal that all homeowners share. Unfortunately, the quality of the air within the home is a facet of the overall comfort therein which is often overlooked. It is simply not enough to effectively heat and cool one’s living space; the quality of the air throughout that living space must also be maintained at a high level. For some homeowners, this necessitates the use of UV germicidal lights in Tampa, FL. Not every home will necessarily benefit from the use of such devices, though, which is why we have put together some information regarding UV germicidal lights and their uses for you to review. If you suspect that such devices could benefit you in your living space, schedule service with the pros here at IERNA’s Heating & Cooling.
What Are UV Germicidal Lights, and What Do They Do?
UV germicidal lights are simply lamps which are installed into the ductwork of an HVAC system. They emit small, safe amounts of UV (ultraviolet) radiation therein. While these amounts of UV radiation pose absolutely no threat to residents or pets within the home, the effects of the lamps are devastating to biological pollutants passing beneath them. These pollutants may include viruses, bacteria, mold spores, and pet dander. The UV lights disrupt the biological pollutants’ ability to reproduce, and destroy them as well. This means that you won’t have to worry about the pollutants getting trapped in an air filtration system, only to continue thriving therein.
Benefits of UV Germicidal Lamps
UV air cleaners are able to resolve problems stemming from the biological pollutants that traditional air cleaners and/or filters are simply not able to handle. These pollutants can cause serious discomfort for allergy sufferers or those with respiratory ailments, and can also lead to illness and the proliferation of mold throughout the house.
