Worried About Your Family’s Health? Install a UV Air Purifier

Here in Round Rock, TX, spring and summer bring with them germs and pollen that can wreak havoc on sensitive family members. You can keep your home as clean as possible, and yet contaminants will still get in every time you open a door or a window. A healthy family is everyone’s concern, but it can be particularly daunting if you have an elderly family member, a new baby, or anyone with sensitive systems such as those suffering from asthma.

The solution may be a UV air purifier installed in your ducts, which can keep your home free of germs by working in conjunction with your air conditioning system to scrub the air clean while it runs. As a result, your home will be a much healthier place to be and you don’t need to worry about what kind of contaminants you may be tracking in. Here’s a brief analysis of how it all works.

UV Is Lethal to Germs

We can’t see ultraviolet light, but we can feel it when we go to the beach. It’s what causes us to tan (or burn when we haven’t put on enough sunblock). In lower amounts, it’s what makes our white clothes glow in the dark at rock concerts: UV lights do that. The same principle applied to keeping your home clean. For while UV light at that level is quite harmless to humans and pets, it spells doom for germs and biological contaminants. They’ll either be killed outright or rendered incapable or replicating. Either way, the problem is solved.

Why Use the Ducts?

Because your air conditioner circulates the air in your whole house, the apex of your ducts is the perfect place to cover the maximum amount of air in the minimum amount of time and space. The system forces the air to pass under the UV lights , leaving germs nowhere to escape.
