Ultra Violet

Scientists have known for years that one of the most effective air purifiers is natural sunlight. Not the light we see when we look out the window, but the invisible ? band of ultraviolet rays that make up part of the sun’s light spectrum. The sun’s UV-C rays act as a natural outdoor air purification system, inhibiting the growth and reproduction of bacteria, viruses, fungi, molds, and dust mites. However, this natural process does not occur indoors. Ultraviolet radiation (UV-C) replicates the natural outdoor purification system of the sun by destroying the illness and disease-causing microbes living and multiplying in indoor air.

A UV light uses ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms (mold, mildew, bacteria, and viruses).It doesn’t filter the air, but eradicates the living microorganisms in the air that passes near the UV light. This technology is most effective when used with an air filtration system connected to the furnace. This is because if too much particulate passes by the UV light, microorganisms can hide in the shadows. In combination with a quality filter, it is the most effective way to reduce airborne contaminants and the health risks they represent.

If a person is hypo allergic to allergens in the air then an air filtration in combination with an ultra violet system connected to the furnace is the best solution.
