It’s unusual to think about air conditioning and ultraviolet light to have any connection in practice but they actually do. UV light has been generally considered to be harmful however, there are many types of UV rays. UV-C or Type-C ultraviolet light has long been used in hospitals and laboratories for its germicidal properties. Today, some HVAC systems make use of UV-C filters to help improve the indoor air quality of homes and buildings all over.
As more and more families stay indoors in light of the current situation, it’s important now more than ever to ensure that they are well protected against germs and viruses. With the right ultraviolet air purifier, your HVAC system can do its part in helping your home stay safe. Let our experts at J&M show you how you can benefit from this technology.
Ultraviolet Air Purifiers
UV purifiers come in many different names like UV germicidal radiation, UVGI devices, or UV-C purifiers. For air conditioning systems, their main function is similar to almost any type of purifier: to improve indoor air quality by removing airborne pollutants. They are more specialized, however, in deactivating germs and bacteria in both surfaces and the air.
Ultraviolet Purifiers in HVAC Systems
It’s rare for a UV purification system to be used alone. While they are effective at reducing live contaminants, they still stand to benefit from the additional protection that HEPA filters provide. These filters trap mechanical particles such as dust and smoke and, when used alongside UV air purifiers, can give your home complete defense against almost all types of pollutants.
Ask Your Trusted HVAC Technicians About UV Air Purifiers
UV air purifiers in air conditioning units possess high efficiency ratings in air quality control but it’s important that they are installed by a certified technician. When used improperly, UV radiation can catalyze the formation of ozone which can be noxious in high amounts. This is why installation of UV purification devices are best left to professionals.
