UV Lamps

According to the EPA, people spend up to 90% of their time indoors. When your indoor air is twice as polluted as the air outside, you become significantly more likely to develop respiratory and other health issues. This is hardly surprising when you stop to think about the pollen, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms floating around people’s homes.

While the statistics are dire, you can take comfort in knowing there are solutions. Here at Air Treatment, Inc., we recommend a whole home purification system that includes the use of ultraviolet (UV) light. This is not too dissimilar from the systems hospitals use to prevent the spread of tuberculosis and other dangerous illnesses.

How Does UV Light Work for Air Purification?

Powerful UV light has the ability to neutralize bacteria and mold spores, as well as kill dust mites. For air purification, the air stream passes through a beam of UV light every time it circulates. The air is fully circulated through your home up to fifty times a day, which means it is being purified and neutralized repeatedly.

Over time, symptoms such as allergies, asthma, and other respiratory infections are greatly reduced. Some people even notice their families seem to get sick less often. You also have the added benefit of keeping your HVAC coils free of mold and other growths, increasing your system’s lifespan and efficiency.

Who Should Consider Installing a UV Lamp?

Anyone who suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory diseases will benefit from breathing air cleaned by a UV lamp. This also includes individuals with a compromised immune system or increased susceptibility to airborne illness, such as newborn infants and the elderly.
