“Do UV bulbs have a positive effect on the air quality within your home?” Our response is, “Absolutely!” The strategy by which UV lights work is quite simple and intriguing. There’s a good chance that utilizing UV lights will be the solution to your problem if you’ve been looking for something to improve the air quality in your house. However, bear in mind that before you do anything, it is important to have a basic grasp of how things function and what to anticipate. Luckily, at Lancaster Furnace & Air Conditioning, we are well-informed and experienced in this arena. We are also prepared to provide you with the following information about UV lights so that you can make an educated decision regarding whether or not UV lights may be a good fit for your home as you work toward improving the IAQ (indoor air quality) of your house.

Why Should You Use UV Lights To Raise Indoor Air Quality?

According to studies, the air inside a home may be up to five times more polluted than the surrounding natural environment outdoors. Fresh air and sunshine are two key elements as to why the air outdoors remains cleansed. This makes sense that UV lights are the most efficient approach for removing airborne particles and pollutants from your house. So, how effective are they? UV lights successfully remove 99.9 percent of bacteria in the air. They can effectively eliminate most new pollutants thanks to their high efficiency. When it comes to decreasing pollutants, UV lights have an excellent record of reducing:

  1. Airborne chemicals
  2. Pet odors
  3. Allergy triggers
  4. Mold and mildew
  5. Germs
  6. Viruses
  7. Other unpleasant odors

What Is the Installation Procedure For HVAC UV Lights?

Next, let’s speak about installation. Because UV lights work together with your HVAC system, they are generally placed within your ductwork. In addition, maintenance is simple! For instance, our NATE-certified technicians can replace them during your regular scheduled maintenance inspections. Whew! How about that? Besides calling to schedule your seasonal checks, you won’t have to do much (if anything) at all. This is a major plus in our opinion!

Why Are UV Lights a Great Option To Use?

So, how is it possible for UV light to have a 99.9 percent success rate? As previously said, the UV bulbs are positioned in your air ducts. Airborne contaminants are carried along with the airflow from your HVAC system inside of your ductwork and directed past the UV lights positioned in your air ducts. As a result, pollutants are zapped by the UV rays after they come into contact with them because they attack them at their core and destroy their DNA, rendering them ineffective and unable to regenerate. This is what practically kills the contaminant.

Your long-term health is crucial! Though, poor indoor air quality may have both short-term and long-term health effects on your general health. Keep in mind that some side effects won’t show up until much later on. So, while you aren’t aware of any undesirable consequences right now, you may have to deal with adverse reactions down the road.
