Fight Allergies in Miami with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was initially used to treat tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to clean hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Miami home’s environment cleaner.
A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and enhance the air quality in your Miami home. It can eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.
This can prompt relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid climates where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC system run longer, since they keep parts clean.
Our Experts can advise you on the system that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and run continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to eliminate the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as quickly as 10 seconds, this powerful light stops contaminants from growing throughout your HVAC system and home.
Two studies have shown how practical UV light is in fighting germs and mold.
In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to take care of 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.
In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold concentration in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.
A germicidal system can also wipe out scents and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not practical against dust, which is best controlled by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you use a few preventive measures.
The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can detect. It’s behind creating painful sunburns. Ongoing overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.
The type of light used in a germicidal system is more concentrated, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look right at the light or permit bare skin be exposed to it.
