How Do UV Lights Improve the Air in Your Home?
Thursday, July 28, 2016

UV light is typically nothing but the reason people wear sunscreen, or at least they think so. In reality, this particular light frequency has some specialized germicidal qualities, so much so that they’re used frequently in air conditioning systems to improve the indoor air quality in your home. Here’s how:

UV Light Kills Germs and Purifies Air

You know how UV light is pretty harsh on your eyes and skin? Turns out that works for impurities in your HVAC ducts as well.

1. When your HVAC is installed, it will often come with a continuous UV light that shines on all the air that circulates through your ducts and into your home.

2. That light permeates the DNA molecules of microorganisms in the air, such as mold, and interrupts their ability to regenerate, purifying the air.

3. An efficient air HVAC system pumps enough air through the house to purify the whole structure’s indoor air. In a way, it’s like a self-cleaning fish tank!

The last part is pretty important. It takes an efficient heating and air conditioning system to effectively purify your air every day. To see how efficient the HVAC is operating in your Charlotte home, schedule an inspection with the experts in heating and cooling at All City Heat and Air today!

Tom and I would like to take a moment to thank you for your recent visit to inspect and clean our heating equipment. As always, we received your normal professional and informative information. We consider you the most knowledgeable person we have ever dealt with when it comes to our heating and cooling equipment. When you put in our new system a few years ago you advised us on what would work best for our home and we were very pleased with what we decided to have installed.

We have been dealing with you for years and would not consider contacting anyone else when we have a problem or for our annual inspection. We do not hesitate to recommend you to all of our family and friends whenever they have a need for a top notch heating and air specialist.
