UV Lights – UV Germicidal Lights
UV lights can improve the indoor air quality in your home and help your family breathe easier.
Exposure to mold, fungus, bacteria and yeast can lead to a number of health problems such as allergies and asthma. You may not see them, but these contaminates are in the air you breathe inside your home. It is possible that the quality of the air in your home is worse than it is outside.
UV germicidal lights use ultraviolet light to kill these contaminates, thus improving your homes air quality. These UV lights supplement your air filtration system.
Facts About Mold
The presence of mold in the air is very common. There are about 150,000 different types of mold that grow indoors and out. Molds play an important role in the natural environment. However, the presence of mold indoors has become a source of concern due to certain health risks linked to mold exposure.
Mold spores are commonly found in household dust. Some of the health problems include allergies, asthma, and eyes, nose and throat irritation. Mold can elevate the risk of respiratory infections.
How Does UV Light Help?
Ultraviolet light is germicidal, which means it is able to break down the DNA in bacteria, viruses and other airborne contaminates and thus keep them from growing. The UV light in the sun does this to the air outside. Using UV germicidal lights in connection with your home’s HVAC system is a way to disinfect the air inside without using chemicals.
