Air Purifiers: Ultraviolet Lights
In the 1930s, it was discovered that ultraviolet (UV) lighting could alter the DNA of microorganisms, rendering them harmless. Since then, this technology has been refined to produce the ultimate air disinfectant. When placed at strategic points in your heating and cooling system, UV lights minimize the impact of live, harmful micro-organisms circulating through your facility’s air.
The benefits of ultraviolet lights are:
- A reduction of illnesses from airborne bacteria and viruses
- A reduction of allergens such as fungi and molds
- A reduction of odors caused by biological contamination in HVAC systems
- An increase in the effectiveness of humidifiers and filters by disinfecting air as it is cooled or heated
