When to Use UV Germicidal Lights

UV germicidal lights emit ultraviolet radiation in amounts which are safe to humans, pets, and other welcome guests in your home, but which are capable of destroying biological pollutants and rendering them incapable of reproducing. These devices are installed in the ductwork in an HVAC system, and treat air as it passes beneath them. If you have trouble with mold, viruses, or other biological pollutants in your home, you should certainly give the use of UV germicidal lights some serious consideration. They can help to alleviate asthma, allergy, and other respiratory illness symptoms to improve health and comfort for you and your family members.

Limitations to Keep in Mind

When it comes to resolving problems with biological pollutants, UV germicidal lights are very helpful. However, they cannot remove dust, dirt, and other debris from the air in the manner of air filtration systems. Because of this, you should use UV air purifiers as supplements to, but not in replacement of, air filtration equipment. If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to give us a call.
