Keeping the air in your home pure is one of the most important things you can do for your family. With so many potential contaminants around you at all times, it can be difficult to know how clean the air in your Julian, NC, home really is. Here’s how UV light air purification technology is changing the way that you can purify your home’s air.
How Does a UV Light Work?
While an air purifier simply sits in the middle of a room and purifies the air that passes through it, UV lamp air purifiers start cleaning the air before it reaches the inside of your home. UV lamps use shortwave ultraviolet light to neutralize airborne pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and other harmful elements. With the UV lamp mounted inside your home’s HVAC system, contaminants become inactive before they ever reach your vents.
Enjoy Improved Efficiency
While having clean air is important for the health and safety of your family, it’s also worth noting that clean air also leads to a more energy-efficient home. As microorganisms build up on your HVAC system’s coils, your system will struggle to consistently work at its best. While your system is struggling, it runs for longer periods of time, which leads to an increase in your utility bills.
When you’re trying to keep your home comfortable without running up hefty utility bills, nothing is as important as ample airflow. You may not think about indoor air quality having an effect on the airflow in your home, but there is a correlation. When filters become clogged, less air gets into your home, which can lead to a decrease in comfort.
