Fight Allergies in Cleveland with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was initially used to treat tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sanitize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Cleveland home’s environment cleaner.

A UV lamp can disinfect HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Cleveland home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens within 10 seconds of contact.

This can prompt relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid locations where mold and bacteria prosper. These lights may even help your HVAC equipment run longer, since they keep parts clean.

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are placed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work constantly. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to eliminate the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as fast as 10 seconds, this powerful light stops contaminants from spreading throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how practical UV light is in fighting germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to eliminate 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold amounts in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.

A germicidal system can also wipe out smells and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not useful against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you take a couple of preventive measures.

The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a lower wavelength than light you can detect. It’s behind creating painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can cause wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more powerful, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or allow bare skin to come into contact with it.
