Fight Allergies in Canada with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was first used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to clean 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 equipment last longer, since they keep pieces clean.

Our Experts can suggest 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 all the time. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as little as 10 seconds, this strong light halts contaminants from multiplying throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in battling 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 managed by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you follow some precautions.

The sun emits ultraviolet light, which has a smaller wavelength than light you can detect. It’s responsible for creating 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 take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or allow bare skin be exposed to it.
