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!
