Many homeowners in Gonzalez, TX, and other others throughout South Central Texas are shocked to discover the air in their homes could be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Furniture, plastics, dry-cleaned clothing, adhesives, paints, cooking and household chemicals all contribute to indoor air quality issues. You may also be concerned about airborne germs in your house. Here are four important benefits of AC/heating air filtration systems that use UV light in your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.
1. AC/Heating UV Lights Help Inactivate Allergens
Many people suffer from allergies. UV light air filtration systems installed in your heating and cooling system help inactivate a range of allergens, including dust mites, pollen, mold spores and more. You’ll breathe easier and have fewer allergy symptoms.
2. HVAC UV Lights Help Remove Odors
Cooking and cleaning generate a lot of odors. Those smells may make you uncomfortable or even nauseous. HVAC UV lights help break down and destroy odor-causing chemicals. If your residence includes a pet, these lights also help eliminate stinky pet odors. Your visitors may not even realize you have a dog or cat after you have a system incorporating UV light installed in your heating and cooling system.
3. AC/Heating UV Lights Help Kill Bacteria and Viruses
Many people are concerned about the spread of airborne viruses and bacteria from one household member to another. When somebody coughs or sneezes, another person can breathe in the resulting infectious droplets released into the inside air circulating through the home. HVAC UV lights help kill bacteria and viruses, reducing your risk of getting sick or spreading illness through a home.
4. HVAC UV Lights Help Improve Airflow
AC/heating UV lights help improve the airflow in your house by helping clean the unit’s coils and keep them free of particulates. As a result, your home’s temperature will be more consistent, and the heating and cooling equipment may last longer.
