How UV Lights Help to Purify the Air

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

You may tend to associate UV rays with tanning or the occasional sunburn, but UV rays can do much more than give your skin a painful bright red tint. UV light actually harms or kills small organic matter, which is why overexposure to the sun can lead to skin damage. But while short periods of time lounging in the sun’s rays won’t do much to affect you, it can kills and sterilize small organic matter that you don’t want in the air you breathe. That’s why many homeowners and business owners alike turn to UV air purifiers to help clear the air of organisms that could otherwise make people sick.

UV air purifiers are installed on the indoor air handler of your forced-air heating and AC system, a common breeding ground for bacteria and viruses and a source of mold development. Moisture is likely to develop at the indoor air handler. The components frequently heat up and cool down, and the indoor blower fan constantly blows potentially humid air over the air handler every day. Condensation can then collect at the indoor air handler, which creates an ideal condition for some microorganisms to thrive. UV air purifiers are positioned atop the air handler and can kill any microorganism that passes through or any that are already living in the system.

UV air purifiers are most important for people with allergies, asthma, or immune disorders. Bacteria and viruses can have a debilitating effect on those with compromised immune system, and mold spores can aggravate allergies, asthma, or other respiratory disorders. That’s why UV air handlers are so often employed in hospitals, to prevent illnesses from worsening and to protect hospital staff. UV air purifiers can even eliminate odors from cooking and pets from the air. In fact, they’re employed at sewage treatment plants so that plant workers don’t have to work in unpleasant conditions.

No matter what you use your UV air purifier for, it takes a professional to install this system and test it for proper operation. We have experience with many types of air purifiers in Walker County so you can get the filtration you need in your home.

Poor indoor air quality can lead to uncomfortable conditions for residents with asthma, allergies or other respiratory problems. A high-quality air purifier can help fix these problems. There are a few different types of air purifiers that you may want to consider for installation in your home. Each has its own unique benefits.

A good air filter is one of the most effective, efficient ways that you can improve indoor air quality in your home. Air filters’ efficient are rated with a MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value). The high the MERV of your air filter the more effective it will be. The air filter factory installed in your heating and cooling system, for instance, has a low MERV and is intended more to protect your HVAC equipment than to improve indoor air quality. A filter with a higher MERV will trap more pollutants, removing them from circulation in your home.

For a more advanced method you may want to consider purchasing an electronic air cleaner. With these devices electricity is used to give pollutants a static charge by ionizing them. Depending on the device, the pollutants will then either be collected on a plate that can be removed for cleaning or will simply adhere to the walls and surfaces of the room, removing them from the air.

Removing airborne pollutant from the air in your home should be a priority. Clean air is more comfortable and healthier, reducing allergy symptoms and the general air quality issues. Contact Ardon Maintenance today for more information about air purifiers in Madisonville, TX.
