How Do UVGI Lights Contribute to Healthy Indoor Air Quality?
There are many IAQ products on the market, but UVGI is one of the most effective ones. A UVGI system is an air-cleaning technology proven to mitigate the risk of spreading viruses. The UV light effectively sterilizes microorganisms. Endorsed by The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), UVGI is known for its ability to eliminate airborne infections.
As air circulates, airborne particles pass through the HVAC system and ductwork. While large particles get trapped in your air system, those that are microscopic can travel through the ductwork and into the environment. However, ultraviolet germicidal light stops tiny particles from passing through the HVAC system, thus providing you and your inhabitants with cleaner, healthier air. UVGI offers other advantages as well, including:
UVGI improves the efficiency of your existing system. Because it performs at peak levels without working as hard, you ultimately save money on monthly utility bills, since your system doesn’t exhaust itself.
UVGI is continual maintenance to your HVAC system. It eliminates the need to manually pressure wash or perform routine system cleanings. As the UV lights shine on the critical configurations of your HVAC system, it keeps them clean year-round. UVGI constantly disinfects and removes mold within the system, which could cause allergy and asthma flare-ups.
Eliminates Use of Harsh Chemicals
Replace or reduce the use of harmful, toxic chemicals. UVGI eliminates the need to use bleach tablets in the drain pan. Plus, you no longer have to wait for the smell of harsh chemicals to dissipate before entering a room.
