Homeowners in Melbourne, FL, should breathe clean indoor air that will protect them from allergies and possibly asthma difficulties. Therefore, an HVAC system with effective devices like UV lights is essential for your residence. Read on to learn how UV lights work in the HVAC system and how you can benefit from using them.

How They Work

UV lights that we place inside the HVAC system works by using their wavelength to inactivate air pollutants. Our team of technicians carries out the installation with light waves ranging from 0 to 400 nanometers. The lights will kill germs and other organisms in the air, improving the overall air quality.

Kills Bacteria and Viruses

We will aim a coil sterilization light at the AC coils to destroy bacteria and viruses on this wet surfaces. The lights stay on 24 hours a day.

Your home will be free from the pathogens that float in the air. Thus, you will be able to breathe clean air to support your respiratory health.

Eliminates Biological Contaminants

Biological growth in our homes may cause a musty smell that you can’t eradicate by cleaning. The pollutants can come from damp places such as the bathrooms or other damp areas in the home.

Air sterilization lights work by killing the microorganisms that float in the air. Usually, we place the lighting device in the air duct close to the AC coils so that it can remove the contaminants in the air. Normal circulation through your house back through the air handler and out through the ductwork continues to eliminate spores.

Improves Overall Health

UV lights are effective at getting rid of spores, viruses and bacteria as well. If you have respiratory problems, the lights will minimize the irritants that trigger them.
