Fight Allergies in Canada with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was initially used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sanitize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Canada home’s environment healthier.
A UV lamp can decontaminate HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Canada home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms within 10 seconds of contact.
This can lead to relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid climates where mold and bacteria flourish. These lights may even help your HVAC unit last longer, since they keep pieces clean.
Our Experts can advise you on the system that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and run continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to destroy the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as fast as 10 seconds, this strong light halts contaminants from growing throughout your HVAC system and home.
Two studies have shown how effective UV light is in fighting germs and mold.
In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to eliminate 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.
In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold concentration in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.
A germicidal system can also neutralize odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not useful against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you use a couple of precautions.
The sun lets off ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can detect. It’s responsible for leading to painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.
The type of light used in a germicidal system is more concentrated, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning manage installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or allow bare skin be exposed to it.
