Replacing the air filter in your furnace or air cleaner is a regular step in monthly home maintenance. You remove the contaminant laden filter from the system, and cringe at the sight of a month’s worth of bacteria, mold, viruses, and allergens. The filter only collects these contaminants. It does nothing to neutralize or kill the pollutants it gathers.
A UV light on the other hand can sanitize your air by neutralizing these illness causing, clean air robbing contaminants with every cycle of the heating and cooling systems.
How UV Lights Clean the Air
We have all heard of ultra-violet light and what it can do, but we may not realize its ability to kill or deactivate indoor air pollutants. These powerful lights are hidden away in the duct work of your HVAC system and as the air circulates past the light, it is decontaminated. These lights can:
- Kill Viruses and Bacteria
- Destroy Pollen Spores
- Minimize Allergy Irritants
- Remove smells
Vastly Improved Indoor Air Quality from a UV Light
Its ability to remove offensive odors lies in its ability to kill bacteria. Many types of bacteria release these odors and killing the bacteria eliminates the odor. These lights can vastly improve the indoor air quality in your home but they should be installed by a licensed professional. Trust your indoor air quality to the experts at Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning. We will safely and effectively install a UV light in your heating and cooling system, and before you know it, you will be enjoying cleaner, healthier indoor air.
