Maintain a Healthful Environment with a UV Air Purifier

We’ve had a chilly winter season so far, and your heater has no doubt been working hard in order to keep your home warm and cozy. Once summer returns, your air conditioner is going to be in regular rotation in order to keep your home cool and comfortable. We know that you want to maintain accurate temperature settings in your home, which is why we offer such great HVAC services. However, you must also be sure to maintain great indoor air quality in your home.

That is why we often recommend that homeowners use UV air purifiers. Not every home will require one, but for those homeowners struggling with a certain type of pollutant, the UV air purifier is a powerful ally. Consider the following information, and contact us if you are interested in using a UV air purifier in Fresno, CA.

What Does UV Air Purification Accomplish?

If you already have an air filtration system in place, you may be wondering why another type of air purification system may be necessary. Basically, an air filtration system is really only going to remove certain pollutants from the air in your home. Typically, it will be filtering out dust and other airborne pollutants. An air filter, or even an electronic air cleaner, is not going to be effective in the fight against biological pollutants, though.

Biological pollutants may include viruses, bacteria, and even mold spores. These differ greatly from dust and dirt in that they are living organisms. That means that they can reproduce, even if they are trapped in a filter/collection chamber. UV air purifiers solve this problem by using UV (ultraviolet) radiation in order to destroy these pollutants. The UV lights, which are confined to your air handler and are completely safe for everyone in your home, disrupt these pollutants at the biological level. They are killed off or simply rendered incapable of reproduction, leaving your home much more healthful in the process.
