When it comes to your home, you want to do everything you can to make it safe and comfortable for you and your family. One of the things that threaten this comfortability is indoor air pollution, but there is a way to fix (or avoid) this problem! Did you know that making the switch to UV lighting systems can rid your home of some of these pollutants? Here’s how UV lighting can improve air quality in your home.
How it works
The way UV – or ultraviolet light – systems work is by attacking the bacteria and other contaminants in the air. The organic and airborne pollutants travel into the ducts and pass through the rays of the UV lighting that is installed. Once it passes through, the rays damage the DNA and RNA of the contaminants, making it so they cannot regenerate or reproduce and it kills them off quite quickly. The Reme Halo In-duct Air Purifier is an example of an air purifier that uses this ultraviolet technology to help improve the air in your home.
What it does
Installing a UV light system helps protect your home against not only airborne pollutants but also against organic pollutants such as mold, mildew, bacteria and fungus. These types of air filters also reduce the presence of allergens in the home, which is just what you need with allergy season amongst us! Overall, UV filters can make a greatly improve your indoor air quality. For the most effective use of your filters and the more improved air quality, it is suggested to use a UV filter in addition to the filter you use now.
In case you’re wondering “can’t these US filters be harmful to my family?” – no, they are completely safe! The ultraviolet filters are installed inside of the air duct system in your home, so no one comes in direct contact with it.
