Fight Allergies this Spring with a UV Air Purifier

Spring is on its way here in Madisonville, TX, and with it comes the inevitable onslaught of pollen and other biological contaminants to invade your home. If you suffer from allergies or someone in your family does, you know how distressing this time of year can be. Any steps you can take to make the air in your home cleaner and safer are steps well worth taking. A UV air purifier, which shines an ultraviolet light across the apex of your cooling ducts and forces air to pass through it when you run your heater or air conditioning, is an ideal way to fight allergies this spring. We’ve provided a quick breakdown on how it works.

Ultraviolet Light

Ultraviolet light exists beyond our ability to see, but it’s present in sunlight, which is what causes us to tan or burn when we spend too much time out in it. In less powerful amounts, UV lights are what causes your white clothing to glow in the dark on amusement park rides or at rock concerts. At the level used in an air purifier, the light itself is harmless to human beings and other multi-celled organisms (like pets), and never leaves your ducts regardless. For biological contaminants in your home, however, it either kills them or sterilizes them the moment they touch it.

Your Ducts Are Ideal

You can’t simply put a UV light in every corner or your home in order to combat germs and allergens. You need to make the biggest impact in the smallest amount of space, which is why your ducts make sense for a UV air purifier. Is you run your system, the air cycles through the light, slowly “scrubbing” your household atmosphere clean. It’s efficient, easy to use and will help put the kibbutz on those allergy attacks.
