Your HVAC system maintains your house and keeps it a pleasant and comfortable place to live in. It adjusts the temperature and circulates air, making your home a perfect little haven for you and your family throughout the summer months and year. This is why maintaining proper indoor air quality is so essential during the summer. Allergens and other airborne irritants are at an all-time high during the summer months. 

Even if they can’t be seen, tiny pollutants and particles are in the air we breathe. As a result, air pollution has an influence on everyone. Even if you don’t notice the effects right away. But don’t worry; there is a solution! We highly recommend the use of UV lights. So please continue to read the following information from Centerville Heating & Cooling to learn more about UV lights and how they may help improve indoor air quality.

UV Lights: What Are Their Benefits?

UV lights have a number of advantages, many of which are not immediately evident. Some side effects of poor indoor air quality may result in both short-term and long-term effects. UV lights may be used for a variety of purposes. These include: reducing the risks of disease and germs, removing unpleasant odors and fragrances from your home and use, and minimizing the chances of mold and mildew growth. In addition, those who suffer from asthma or allergies may discover additional relief when UV lights are utilized in the home.

UV Lights: How Do They Work?

The most efficient way to disinfect your home’s air is with UV lights due to their 99.9% accuracy rate. UV lights destroy germs and bacteria on the spot when the contaminant comes in contact with the bulb’s ray. This DNA damage prevents the contaminant from regenerating and recovering by attacking the bacteria’s DNA at its core, preventing it from restoring itself.

UV Lights: How Are They Installed?

UV lights are usually placed in your air ducts. Typically, one to three UV bulbs are installed. This number depends on a number of factors such as the size of your home and the location the bulbs need to be installed. It’s also worth noting that installing UV lighting isn’t a one-size-fits-all endeavor.  So, if you’re thinking about getting them done, contact a licensed professional, like Centerville Heating & Cooling who is well-equipped to handle the job.
