Fight Allergies in Niagara Falls 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 Niagara Falls home’s environment healthier.

A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Niagara Falls home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.

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

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and operate continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

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

Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in combating germs and mold.

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

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

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

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is harmless as long as you take some precautions.

The sun lets off ultraviolet light, which has a lower wavelength than light you can see. It’s responsible for creating painful sunburns. Ongoing overexposure can result in wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

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