Am I a Good Candidate for UV Germicidal Lights?

 

While many homeowners are content with the ability to cool their homes effectively when the summer heat is upon them, and to heat their homes consistently when things finally cool off for the winter season, it is also important to keep the quality of the air in one’s home in mind. A number of different problems may prevail with the quality of air in any given home. As varied as the potential issues that you may encounter with your indoor air quality are, there is surely a system out there that suits your needs.

A multi-pronged approach may be necessary to bring your air quality up to ideal levels. One system which benefits many homeowners is the UV germicidal light. Here is some information from the IAQ pros at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning which will help you to determine if a UV germicidal system installation is right for your home. 

UV germicidal lights work best when used in conjunction with other air quality systems, such as standard electronic air purifiers. This is because they do not filter the air in order to remove pollutants as it passes by. Instead, the purpose of UV germicidal lights is to destroy biological pollutants, such as viruses, mold, and bacteria, as they pass underneath. These pollutants are living entities, and could continue to reproduce and thrive on air filters if that is all that you used to cleanse the air. Because of this, any homeowners with concerns about biological pollutants are good candidates for UV germicidal lights.

While spots of mold in your home may suggest that a pollutant destruction-based air quality system is needed, there are other, more subtle signs that you may overlook. Aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms, may be the result of such pollutants. Ultimately, the only way to know for certain if UV germicidal lights are the right match for you is to work with a trained professional.

The installation of ultraviolet germicidal lamps must be completed by a qualified technician. Such devices are installed directly into air ducts, and must be placed strategically in order to ensure that all of the air passing by is treated. A UV germicidal light installation in Gilbert, AZ may be just what you need to get your air quality back on track.

If you use air ducts to distribute conditioned air throughout your home, and notice any of the warning signs mentioned above, contact Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning today.
