Fight Allergies in Ocala with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was first used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Ocala home’s environment cleaner.
A UV lamp can disinfect HVAC systems and enhance the air quality in your Ocala home. It can wipe out mold, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms within 10 seconds of contact.
This can lead to relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid climates where mold and bacteria prosper. These lights may even help your HVAC unit run longer, since they keep parts clean.
Our Experts can recommend the system that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and run constantly. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to destroy the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as little as 10 seconds, this strong light halts contaminants from spreading throughout your HVAC system and home.
Two studies have shown how effective 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 concentration in a commercial office building’s HVAC unit.
A germicidal system can also take care of odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not practical against dust, which is best managed by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you use a few safety measures.
The sun emits ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can see. It’s responsible for leading to painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.
The type of light used in a germicidal system is stronger, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning manage installation and maintenance. You should never look right at the light or permit bare skin to come into contact with it.
