Use a UV Air Purifier for a Healthier Home

Manor, TX gets hot and humid in the summer, which makes the perfect breeding ground for germs and bacteria. They flourish in quite parts of your home, taking advantage of muggy conditions to multiple and spread. Biological contaminants can quickly spread illness through your home, as well as contributing to that stale, stagnant feeling that comes every summer. 

The best way to fight these creepy crawlies is with a UV air purifier, installed in your HVAC system by a trained professional. Not only will it curtail the spread of bacteria in your home, but it will lead to a more comfortable environment overall. Here’s a quick breakdown of how it all works.

Ultra-Violet Light

If you remember high school science class, you know that ultra-violet light exists beyond our ability to see. It appears in sunlight in large amounts, which causes our skin to tan and burn if we stay out in it for long. At lower levels, UV light bulbs are used at concerts and amusement parks to make white clothes glow in the dark, It’s perfectly harmless in those cases, at least to human beings and pets. But for single-celled organisms, the effects are lethal: killing them on contact or rendering them incapable of reproducing.

Doing the Most Good

A UV light in your home will only affect the air it passes through. A UV purifier is thus placed at the apex to your ducts, where the air in your home cycles through when your AC is running. As it does, the germs and bacteria in it pass through the light and are sterilized, scrubbing your home air clean and elevating the cleanliness and health levels of your household accordingly.

Intelligent Air Services can install, repair, replace and maintain a high quality UV air purifier for your home!
