March 04, 2022
Ultraviolet (UV) germicidal lamps are a simple, yet highly effective way to kill bacterial, yeast, and viral growths in your home. They can be installed in your air filtration system to destroy harmful bacteria before it gets a chance to circulate throughout your home.
Eliminates Mold, Mildew & Bacteria
The main benefit of a UV germicidal lamp is to sanitize and kill everything from mold to mildew and harmful bacteria in your home. These lamps can also keep these things from growing and spreading, stopping them right in their tracks. The ultraviolet wavelength of light is invisible to the human eye but damages the DNA of bacteria, mold, and other air pollutants to kill them off and keep them from duplicating.
Improves Indoor Air Quality
Because UV lamps kill bacteria and mold, they will instantly improve your indoor air quality. Improved indoor air quality can lead to improved respiratory health and lessen symptoms of allergies and colds. Improved indoor air quality also means fewer unpleasant odors in your home that are often caused by mold and mildew in your air system.
Decreases Electricity Costs
Did you know that not only can UV germicidal lights kills bacteria and improve your health, they can also save you money by lowering your electricity costs each month! Because the UV light helps maintain cleaner coils and air, your heating and cooling (HVAC) system doesn’t have to work as hard. The less that your HVAC system has to struggle to keep your house warm or cool, the less electricity it has to use. This also means UV lamps can help prolong the life of your HVAC system and reduce the number of repairs.
Reduces Cold and Flus
UV light can kill airborne viruses and bacteria that can lead to colds and the flu. With a UV germicidal lamp filtering the air before it enters your house, you can prevent germs from circulating from one family member to the next.
