The air quality in Wyckoff may be in good condition now, but that can quickly change depending on weather conditions. And when the weather warms up again and starts getting more humid, you’ll have more to worry about than just a little discomfort—including mold and mildew. One area that this can build-up in is in the cool, damp environment of your air ducts.
This is reason enough to consider a Wyckoff, NJ UV germicidal light installation. Also called UV lights or a UV air purifier, UV germicidal lights effectively kill harmful microorganisms at the source—your air ducts. Keep reading to learn more about these systems and what they can do for your home and your health.
How Do UV Lights Work?
In the simplest of explanations, UV-C light, which is what UV germicidal lights emit, effectively deactivates the cellular structure and DNA of bacteria, viruses, pathogens, and other harmful contaminants such as mold and mildew, which can all have a significant impact on your health.
UV lights cause damage to the nucleic acid of microorganisms, eliminating them from your home. UV lights don’t work like other air purifiers, which remove dust and pollen that’s already become airborne. Instead, it effectively removes bio-contaminants before they even have the chance to become airborne.
Is This Method of Air Purification Safe?
Yes! Ultraviolet technology is a non-chemical and non-invasive method to disinfection. Your UV air purifier will supply a certain amount of ultraviolet radiation to effectively eradicate harmful particles, while causing no harm to people or pets in your home.
If you need any more convincing, think about the “black lights” you see at amusement parts and concert venues. This is a form of UV light—completely harmless to you, but not so to mold, mildew, and other bacteria that can be both harmful to your health and to your home.
Stop Germs at Their Source
Filters do a very good job of straining contaminants out of your home’s air circulation, however even the best air filtration system cannot stop the tiniest and potentially most harmful of particles. Microscopic germs and bacteria are able to easily slip through your air filters, and then reproduce in the dark, damp corners of your home.
However, with UV lights installed directly into your ductwork, there’s nowhere for these microscopic germs to hide. The light forms an impenetrable wall along your ductwork that germs pass through and are immediately eradicated. This is a very effective way to keep your family and your home healthy.
