UV Lights Specialists in Huntsville, AL
Airborne viruses, mold spores, and bacteria thrive in dark, moist environments. The last place you want to find them is in your HVAC system, which is why it is so important to keep it clean. These pollutants can be dispersed throughout the house anytime your heater or air conditioner is turned on. While an air filter or purifier could rid a lot of the dust and dirt, only a UV germicidal light system can eliminate those tiny living pathogens that make their way into your living spaces.
UV light installation is a proven method for killing mold and bacteria in your home’s air conditioners, heaters, air ducts, and filters. If you or someone you know is ready to install a UV light or have their existing one repaired, contact the experts at Blake Brothers for UV germicidal light services Huntsville residents can trust.
How UV Germicidal Lights Work
Ultraviolet light is a wavelength of light that the sun naturally emits. But it’s also more dangerous because it’s less stable than visible light. Exposure to intense UV light can result in cell damage.
A UV germicidal light in your ductwork cleans the coils and air that passes through your HVAC naturally. These systems efficiently eradicate microbial pathogens by directing a concentrated light beam into the area. They may not produce enough UV light to harm humans or animals, but they can instantly kill single-celled organisms like bacteria and viruses.
There are two main types of UV lights for HVAC systems:
- Coil Sanitizing Lights: These are made for air conditioners placed close to the evaporator coil, which stores the refrigerant used to cool your home. Dirt, debris, and pet dander tend to accumulate in this area, while the damp conditions make it a likely spot for mold and bacteria to flourish.
- Air Sanitizing Lights: These are installed in the supply vents of your HVAC system’s ductwork. These lights sanitize the air coming out of the vents before it is circulated throughout your home.
Any of these UV light systems are effective in cleaning the air in your home, but you will need to replace the light bulb and schedule professional cleaning at least once a year to ensure that they continue working at their best. Luckily, Blake Brothers does more than just install and fix UV lighting systems in Huntsville. We also perform regular maintenance to keep them in great shape.
Benefits of HVAC UV Lights
It might shock you, but indoor pollutants can be more harmful than those found outside.
The EPA has listed indoor air pollution as one of the top five environmental risks to public health, so it should come as no surprise that many of us struggle with allergies, asthma, and other illnesses, given how much time we spend indoors.
Switching to or installing a UV light system is a great way to improve your home’s indoor air quality, but it has many other notable benefits, too, such as:
- Improved HVAC system efficiency
- Reduced energy costs
- Better airflow in your home
- Elimination of mold and mildew
- Lowered risk of allergies and respiratory issues
- Elimination of bacteria and viruses
- Elimination of nasty odors from the HVAC system
UV lights are safe, effective, and relatively inexpensive. Plus, they increase the efficiency of your HVAC system. However, to work their magic, they must be installed correctly. So, ensure you hire an experienced HVAC technician who can do the job correctly.
