Healthy Climate UV Germicidal Lights

Posted: 2018-05-29

Every homeowner’s goal should be to keep their home clean while preventing the spread of harmful microorganisms at the same time. Not everyone is aware that their home is a habitat for many invisible, airborne biological pollutants. These contaminants can cause headaches, scratchy eyes, a runny nose, constant coughing, and other cold-like symptoms.

While having a functioning HVAC system is a nice way to keep your home comfortable, it may not be enough to completely get rid of all the contaminants that can negatively affect your health.

By installing an ultraviolet (UV) light, you can effectively eliminate viruses, bacteria, mildew, and other harmful airborne contaminants in your HVAC ducts and coils.

Four Seasons Air Specialists works in partnership with Healthy Climate to improve not only your home’s comfort,but more importantly, your family’s overall safety. We are your trusted HVAC company in Lino Lakes MN that can help you make your home a better place to live in.

What is a Germicidal Light?

A germicidal lamp is a certain type of lamp which generates ultraviolet (UVC) light. This short-wave ultraviolet light breaks DNA base pairing, causing the formation of pyrimidine dimers and leads to the eradication of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. It can also be used to create ozone for water disinfection.

Widely known as ‘cleaning lights’, ultraviolet germicidal lights are primarily used in air, food and water purification. Not only do these lights have the ability to kill bacteria, but they also prevent the growth of some viruses and mold by suppressing DNA duplication.

Germicidal lights are easily installed in your home’s HVAC system’s ductwork and their ultraviolet light rays wipe out surface and airborne particles.

Irradiating the cooling coils and drain pans can significantly reduce mold and bacteria growth on the often-wet surfaces of cooling coils and drain pans, or destroy the microbial films that previously accumulated on the irradiated surfaces.

Studies show that certain germicidal lights achieve up to 99 percent reduction of molds and bacteria on irradiated surfaces. The effectiveness of UV systems that irradiate microorganisms in flowing air can also be significant but is less dramatic and depends highly on the microorganism type, air velocity, humidity, the size of the particles carrying the microorganisms, and the UV system design.
