When to Use UV Germicidal Lights in Your Home

Homeowners today expect to live in a certain amount of comfort, and this goal is well within reach, thanks to modern innovation. However, living in true comfort demands more than just having a good heater to get you through the winter season comfortably, or an AC with which you can cool your home successfully during the hottest time of the year. You must also have great indoor air quality throughout your home. If this is not the case, we can help. Just remember that there is no one system that can resolve all air quality problems. You must use the right equipment for the job. If your concerned with biological pollutants, this probably means using UV germicidal lights in Stamford, CT.

How Does UV Air Purification Work?

UV air purifiers, such as UV germicidal lights, work by utilizing ultraviolet radiation in order to destroy biological pollutants. These pollutants may include viruses, mold and bacteria. Because these pollutants are living organisms, simply filtering them out of the air really is not a good option, and they are minuscule enough to bypass most residential air filters anyway. However, the UV rays emitted by your UV air purifiers in your ductwork are all that is needed to upset these pollutants at a DNA level, rendering them incapable of reproduction.

Because these systems do nothing to remove pollutants such as dirt and dust from the air in your home, though, it should be noted that they are not a good replacement for air filters or air cleaners. Instead, they should be used to supplement these sorts of systems. By taking a multi pronged approach to your indoor air quality, you can enjoy the clean, pure air that you deserve in your home.
