Ultraviolet (UV) light is a great way to keep your family and air conditioning system healthy. UV lights can attack germs that can worsen conditions such as asthma and COPD, as well as remove volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that cause odors like tobacco smoke. Studies have also shown that UV lights in air conditioning systems can be highly effective. One study found that UV lights could reduce the amount of mold and bacteria in a test home by 97%. Another study showed that air purifiers with UV light could reduce the amount of airborne flu virus by 90%.
When combined with proper air filtration, UV lights can be very effective in eliminating viruses, mold, and bacteria. UV lights require very little maintenance and only need attention when they need to be cleaned or replaced. Mounting the light in the right way will allow it to clean the air in your oven and central air system. This means that when the boiler or central air conditioning system blows air through the house, the UV light will turn on when no air is circulating and turn off to save energy. HVAC UV lights purify the air that circulates through the HVAC system and eliminate contaminants such as bacteria and germs. A complete UV light unit is connected directly to the air ducts to disinfect the air entering the machine.
It is important to make sure that it is impossible to see the UV lamp once it is installed in the air conditioning system. Switching to a UV light system will improve the energy efficiency of your air conditioning system and reduce your energy costs. Filters need to be replaced more often than bulbs in a UV light system, making them difficult to maintain and reducing their effectiveness if you forget to change the filter. This UV lamp that disinfects the air is ideal for residential air conditioning systems because it is affordable, easy to install, and disinfects the air when the air conditioner or oven is running. Installing the light as close to the center of the duct as possible will ensure that as much air as possible comes into contact with the UV light when the air conditioner or oven is turned on. For example, it is recommended to replace a Carrier Coil UV lamp every 9000 operating hours or every year. If you're concerned about indoor air quality, consider installing an ultraviolet (UV) light in your HVAC system.
In addition to making breathing easier, UV lights help HVAC units operate more efficiently and are less easily damaged. HVAC UV light systems use a special type of high-frequency, low-wavelength UV light called UV-C to destroy the nucleic acids that form the DNA of harmful bacteria found in the air and to disinfect the air as it passes through the system.
