You care about the health of your family and keep your Franklin County, NC, home clean to reduce health risks to all who enter your home. One important aspect of cleanliness that you may not have considered is purifying your home’s air using a UV light air purification system. Here’s a look at some of the benefits of installing a UV light air purifier.
Reduction of Airborne Pathogens
Ultraviolet light inactivates microorganisms and pathogens, including bacteria, viruses and other contaminants. The exposure to UV light damages the DNA and RNA structures of bacteria and viruses, sterilizing the air in your home. Enhanced air quality helps to provide a clean, healthy environment for your family and guests.
Better Respiratory Health
Many airborne contaminants cause respiratory troubles, from new infections to exacerbated existing conditions. UV light purification removes many of the contaminants that may cause asthma attacks, respiratory diseases and allergic reactions.
UV light air purifiers use less energy than filtered air cleaners, only operating when your furnace fan is on. UV filtration systems may also extend the life of your HVAC filter by keeping biological contaminants from clogging it. Keeping both the filter and the ductwork cleaner means energy savings through increased system airflow.
UV air purifiers don’t have filters, meaning they typically require less maintenance than traditional air purifiers. While you should still have a maintenance agreement for the rest of your HVAC system, light purification requires only a periodic bulb replacement to ensure clean, healthy air continues to circulate through your home.
Clean air is critical to ensure a healthy environment for your family, enhancing health and quality of life for all members of your household. If you worry about the quality of the air in your home, give us a call at Alford Mechanical today to discuss our indoor air quality products and services.
