Germicidal UV lights are simple devices designed to work around the clock to improve the air quality inside your home. Outside, high-energy UV rays generated by the sun neutralize airborne viruses, bacteria, and fungi; indoors, a germicidal lamp performs this same function as air from your forced-air heating and cooling system passes through the beam. Because UV light is so energetic, it kills or neutralizes harmful organisms before they can affect your health. Today, UV lights are used in a variety of applications, including the sterilization of hospital and restaurant environments. Installing a germicidal UV light in your HVAC system offers you these same health benefits as well, reducing your risk of becoming ill due to exposure to microorganisms in your home’s air. Because UV light also kills mold spores, a UV light system can prevent mold buildup inside your HVAC system, your ducts, and elsewhere in your home as well.
Ultraviolet technology is a non-chemical approach to disinfection. In this method of disinfection, nothing is added which makes this process simple, inexpensive and requires very low maintenance. Ultraviolet purifiers utilize germicidal lamps that are designed and calculated to produce a certain dosage of ultraviolet (usually at least 16,000 micro watt seconds per square centimeter but many units have a much higher dosage.)
The frequency of changing a UV lamp bulbs for effective indoor air quality improvement depends on how you are using the system. Typically, a UV lamp being used primarily to disinfect the air circulating through a home or small office should be replaced every 12 months. For people with respiratory conditions or other acute sensitivities, we strongly recommend keeping to an annual lamp replacement schedule for the best control of airborne microorganisms and allergens.
