If you are looking for additional ways to improve the health inside your home, ultraviolet (UV) lights may be the right answer for you. UV lights work by targeting contaminants in your ductwork system and breaking down the components of each cell. When the particle breaks down, it is unable to reproduce.
UV lights are effective at removing bacteria, viruses and mold spores from your home. They break down the particles, preventing them from living and spreading through your home’s air. UV light systems are used effectively in hospitals to prevent the spread of diseases and infections, such as tuberculosis and other bacteria-based diseases. Studies by PLoS Medicine Today and the National Institution for Occupational and Safety Health show that the spread of tuberculosis is as much as 70 percent less when UV lights are used.
You can take advantage of this same technology in your home. Your HVAC contractor can install a UV light system directly into your existing ductwork. The lights then shine onto all particles that flow through your air system, purifying the air in your home significantly.
