How UV Lights Help You Avoid the Risk of Spreading Illnesses and Costly Hospital Visits

post img

UV lights can eliminate up to 99% of airborne contaminants, mold, and viruses on your HVAC drip pan and coils. This type of UV light also helps to clean and sanitize your home’s air and also reduces allergens. As many states—as well as the industry—move away from traditional ozone-based products and towards innovative carbon-based systems, consumers have been left to figure out the particular “what and why’s” of these various products labeled “Ultraviolet Light” or “UV”. 

Traditional ozone generators have been found to cause irritation and create harmful health in the lungs. Ozone oxidizers bond with matter to reduce smells in the air. Many fans of ozone love the reported “fresh as a thunderstorm smell.” However, many of those same fans have reported experiencing headaches and lung issues due to ozone generators.

In contrast, UV lights work on the light spectrum and range from infrared to ultraviolet. The germicidal uvc spectrum measures in at 250 nanometers of light on a scale of 185-400 nanometers. Because UV light waves are emitted at various wavelengths meant to eradicate or destroy fungus and neutralize viruses, they are mainly used in day to day settings such as homes, hospitals, businesses, etc. The goal of UV light usage is to create healthy lungs, both for your home and family. 

By installing a UV light and filter, you can avoid the risk of missing work, spreading illness, and going to the hospital!
