How Do Residential UV Lights Work?
Blue-Tube UV goes inside the central air system where it continuously kills mold and other biological contaminants floating in the air as well as on the HVAC system’s interior surfaces. The cooling coil is a prime example, and an area that benefits great from this light.
For more than a century scientists have understood that certain frequencies of light have a profoundly devastating effect on microbial life. Today, we fully understand that exposure to ultraviolet light in the range of 254 NM (UV-C band) disrupts the DNA of microorganisms. This disruption prevents them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.

What is Indoor Air Quality?
When you own a home, comfort shouldn’t be your only consideration for HVAC equipment. When it comes to Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning, Indoor Air Quality is a critical issue that is often neglected.
This is often the case because most homeowners feel that air pollution is strictly an outdoor problem. Nevertheless, studies indicate this is false. It turns out the air inside many workplaces and homes is far more polluted and toxic than the air outside. Because the average American spends more than 21 hours a day indoors on average, air quality deserves serious consideration and attention. Because the air indoors often lacks proper filtration, indoor air quality is something homeowners should take seriously.
The EPA defines Indoor Air Quality as the quality of air inside a building or home and how it relates to the building or home’s occupants. Indoor Air Quality has a direct and sometimes negative effect on our health in addition to our overall mood, well-being, and energy levels.
Why is Indoor Air Quality Important?
Health officials say the air we breathe in our homes can be 2 to 5 times more toxic and polluted than the air outdoors, where nature has a way of taking care of it through a host of processes unbeknownst to the average person. When you take into consideration how tightly insulated most homes and workplaces are intentionally made in order to keep treated air inside, it becomes obvious why HVAC experts and health officials suggest some homeowners consider certain indoor air quality products to go in conjunction with their heat pump, furnace or air conditioner.
All too often household air pollution is unable to escape because modern dwellings are fairly airtight. In the confined spaces of a house or office building or work environment, pollutants can get trapped without adequate filtration or the circulation of outdoor air. Even with the HVAC system’s air filter, often these pollutants are merely recirculated. Sometimes, getting a humidifier, dehumidifier or air purifier makes a world of difference, in addition to UV Lights and other air filtration products.
Benefits of UV Lights
Breathe Cleaner Air with a UV Light System
When you get your heating or cooling system repaired or replaced, the HVAC technician typically asks if you want to install UV lights in your HVAC system. UV lights prevent mold and mildew from building up in the vents and getting into your house. Let’s take a look at 4 reasons you should consider saying yes to UV lights:
Improved Air Quality
UV lights improve air quality by killing irritants that can make you sick or cause sinus passages to inflame. They combat contaminants that originate in the air-handling units, fiberglass insulation, and airborne fungi. UV lights get rid of drug-resistant bacteria in hospitals by better than 97 percent. Bring this protection to your home.
Add UV lighting to your HVAC system to help it clean itself. That’s one reason UV installations are cost-effective for today’s homeowners. Ask us to inspect your home to make sure you would benefit from UV lighting before purchasing (get a free quote now!) The technology’s effectiveness depends on the power, number, and placement of UV lamps installed. The reflectivity of surfaces near the UV light and your home’s humidity and temperature levels also impact the effectivity of UV lamps.
Reduce Mold And Mildew
Fungal contamination via HVAC units is a common issue you can’t ignore. It spreads allergic rhinitis, infectious diseases, and asthma-inducing organisms, as well as other diseases. Ultraviolet (UV) lights help you develop a robust air purification system in your home or business. They eliminate fungi, germs, bacteria, pathogens, and viruses to keep your people safe.
Your HVAC system circulates air throughout every room of the house or building, so if someone is sick, their germs circulate airborne viruses and bacteria to healthy family members or coworkers. UV lighting eliminates organic buildup on cooling coils, drain pipes, and ductwork, so it kills pathogens and microorganisms that would otherwise attack other people.
