You may have heard about UV lighting, which generates light beyond the spectrum we can perceive. It’s one of the things that makes those t-shirts glow in the dark, and can create some really nifty effects for Halloween. But there’s more to it than just an interesting visual look. UV lighting can play a huge role in your indoor air quality, and a system installed in your home will reap benefits for a long time to come. Here in Redlands, our heating service technicians can install a UV lighting system in your existing HVAC units. But what are the benefits of UV lighting in your heating system? Read on for the answers.
UV lights primarily serve to kill mold, bacteria and various microorganisms present in your air. Here in the Inland Empire, that often means allergens and pollen, as well as other types of harmful organisms. The light breaks down the DNA in these tiny organisms and leaves their cells unable to replicate, which keeps them from proliferating. This is a big boon to anyone who suffers from allergies, but can also improve the breathing air for anyone.
It works best in conjunction with filters and/or air purifiers, which remove the actual particles from the air. That also makes the heating or air conditioning system the ideal place to install one, since the air of the entire household circulates through it. It also means that your service technician can check and change it easily as part of a regular maintenance schedule for your heating system, ensuring that you enjoy its benefits without worrying about the light burning out.
