UV Air Purifiers: Enhancing Air Quality In Your Home

January 7, 2015

You spend a lot of time in your home, especially in the cold winter months. You’re entertaining, relaxing, sleeping, eating, the list goes on and on. Because you are there so often, it is important to make sure that the air in your home is as clean and pure as possible. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside your home can be up to five times more polluted than air outside. Cleaning up the air in your house may sound like a lot of work, but there’s actually a very simple solution. Install a UV air purifier and you’ll notice the difference.

What is a UV Air Purifier

UV air purifiers use ultraviolet germicidal lights to kill mold and bacteria before they get the chance to circulate in your home. They help decompose contaminants like bacteria, chemicals, animal dander, mold, pollutants, allergens, and dust mites. UV air purifiers are installed in the ductwork of your home which allows it to reach the different rooms in your house. Without a purifier, bacteria and mold spores are spread whenever your heating and cooling system’s fan operates.

Benefits of a UV Air Purifier

There are many benefits associated with UV air purifiers in the home. By adding a purifier you are helping improve the air quality for yourself, your family, your pets, and anyone else who may come into your house. Some of the top benefits are:

Mold Spores Are Eliminated– Up to 99.9% of mold spores in your home can be eliminated by a UV air purifier. Mold spores circulate throughout the ducts in your home and are reproduced by releasing invisible, microscopic spores into the air. The UV air purifier kills mold spores, which prevents them from being able to spread.
Your Entire Home Gets Purified– When we put in a whole house air purifier in your ductwork, it can effectively clean out all of the air in every part of your home. No need to worry about only certain rooms receiving clean air, it happens throughout the entire house.
Allergy Symptoms Can Be Lessened– UV air purifiers are a great addition to any home, especially one where any of its occupants experience allergy problems. Both mold spores and allergy-causing bacteria are killed off by UV air purifiers. People who suffer from allergies will notice a reduction in allergy symptoms because there are fewer microbes in the air.
