The UV technology used in home air purifiers can handle any indoor air pollutants. One can use UV light to improve indoor air quality with "tighter" more energy efficient homes. The air circulating throughout the ductwork of the average home or office can be concentrated with contaminants that include: molds, bacteria, and different kinds of viruses.
Basic filtering systems offer little help because these airborne contaminants can either pass through traditional filters or collect on the filter and grow. UV light can help fill the indoor air quality gap and clean the contaminants in the air that normal filters cannot. The germicidal effects of UV light cause photochemical damage to DNA and RNA within micro-organisms.
UV technology is widely used in hospitals, pharmacies, and commercial kitchens to kill airborne and surface micro-organisms such as mold and bacteria. Now home-owners can benefit from UV products as well.
HVAC UV systems are designed to eliminate 'Sick Building Syndrome' (SBS) risks by reducing odors, air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors), smoke, mold, bacteria, and viruses. The HVAC UV lamps are easily mounted into HVAC systems where most SBS problems start.
When the HVAC system is in operation, the UV lamp creates an 'Advanced Oxidation Process' consisting of: hydro-peroxides, ozonide ions, super oxide, and hydroxide ions. These are all friendly oxidisers. Friendly oxidisers is a term used to mean oxidisers that revert back to oxygen and hydrogen after the oxidation of the pollutant.
The HVAC UV whole house air purifier works wonders on mold, bacteria, viruses, pollen, smoke, pet odors, and other indoor air pollutants. It is an excellent choice for commercial offices as well! It is designed to work within your HVAC system by mounting directly into the ductwork to purify the air that passes through the system.
