UV Lights: Hospital Technology That You Can Have In Your Own Home

You may think that hospitals use state-of-the-art technology in order to prevent the large number of diseases from spreading amongst patients and staff. However, you may be surprised that one of the most useful tools they use can be incorporated into your home’s air system to boost your indoor air quality.

UV (ultraviolet) lights are highly efficient germicidal tools that eliminate harmful microorganisms from your air system, preventing them from proliferating. UV lights emit a low level of ultraviolet radiation that immediately kills living particles like fungi, bacteria and viruses when they get exposed to it.

A professional HVAC contractor can quickly and easily install a UV lamp into your HVAC system so that you too can harness the purifying power of UV light. When properly installed, they expose every bit of air that enters your air system to the light, even if you don’t have your heat or A/C running.

UV lamps are so effective at stopping the transmission of germs that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends they be installed in hospital air systems. They are even effective at halting the spread of such infamously contagious diseases as tuberculosis. Fortunately for you, they are affordably priced so that anyone can benefit from them.

One of the most common household targets of UV lights is mold. Mold is a fungus that thrives in damp and dark areas, making it difficult to detect. It quickly becomes airborne and can circulate through your home, irritating your respiratory system, especially if you already suffer from allergies or asthma.

It is important to understand the limited yet powerful role of UV lights in your overall clean air strategy. While they are great at eliminating living microorganisms from your air, they are not designed to filter non-living things like dust, pollen or dander. But when UV lamps are paired with high-efficiency air filters, you will be generating high quality indoor air.
