Ultraviolet Purifiers/UV Air Filtration
If you are susceptible to suffering from allergies related to indoor allergens like mold and bacteria, or just want to be sure the air flowing through your home’s heating and air conditioning systems are as clean and safe as possible for you and your family, an ultraviolet, or UV, germicidal lamp is a great way to keep those harmful contaminants from entering the air in your home.
An ultraviolet purifier is one of the best ways to promote long-term health by keeping indoor air pure and free of contaminants as well as germs, bacteria, and other microbes. A good furnace filter is a must‐have for your heating and cooling system and is a great start to catching dust, mold particles, mold spores, and pollen. However, most filters can’t catch the smaller airborne viruses and bacteria. Ultraviolet air cleaners can effectively remove these contaminants from your home. In this way, a UV air cleaner allows your family to enjoy a healthier environment. This is especially beneficial if any of your family members suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems.
Germicidal UV is a specific type of ultraviolet light (253.7nm wavelength). It won’t keep you from getting a cold or respiratory infection through direct person‐to‐person contact, but it is known to kill airborne germs that transmit infections from person‐to‐person within buildings.
