How UV Air Purifiers Work

A UV air purifier is essentially a large light bulb, but one that gives off ultraviolet light. While this may not seem like a very effective way to cleanse your air of infectious agents, it actually works perfectly well. The vast majority of harmful bio–organic contaminants cannot survive exposure to high amounts of ultraviolet light. It destroys the cellular processes that allow them to reproduce and infect other organisms, often destroying them outright.

UV air purifiers are often installed in the ductwork of a home, so that they can treat all air that is being circulated through the building. As germs and mold spores pass through the light, they are sterilized or destroyed.

The Benefits of Using UV Air Purifiers

UV air purifiers are very good at removing infectious agents from indoor air. They are often used in hospitals, where maintaining a clean environment is vital to the health of the patients inside. Most residences don’t need purifiers that powerful, but if you find yourself getting sick fairly often you should definitely consider having a UV air purifier installed. Properly installed and maintained, a UV air purifier can help you stay healthy all year round.

We Install and Service UV Air Purifiers

Installing a UV purifier can be pretty tricky, and should only ever be done by a professional. You need access to the ducts in exactly the right spot in order to be able to treat all the air that flows through the home. Then, you need to wire the system into the home’s electrical grid. Any kind of electrical work can be extremely dangerous unless you’re a professional with the right equipment. For your own safety, you should always let us handle your UV air purifier installation.

Just like any other system, a UV air purifier occasionally develops problems that need to be dealt with. If you have reason to suspect that your UV air purifier needs repairs, just give us a call!
