Filters are a standard component of any heating and central air conditioning system, but they are designed primarily to remove dust that can harm the furnace, not humans. Also, while they can trap some bacteria and mold spores, they don’t kill them. To eliminate these organisms, a UV air sanitizer is the perfect tool. UV light has been used by hospitals for years to destroy viruses and bacteria and can be put to the same use in your home.

What is a UV air sanitizer?
The power of UV light to kill various microbes has been known for decades. A UV air sanitizer harnesses this quality to provide a safer home environment. The device consists mainly of bulbs that emit ultraviolet light around the frequency of 254 nanometers. The bulbs, which are usually mercury-vapor or fluorescent, are placed in a fixture that’s inserted through the side of an air duct and attached with screws.
The device is placed in a location where it can be easily accessed for periodic cleaning or changing of the bulbs. Often, an additional filtering system is included to reduce dust that can lower the bulb’s effectiveness.
What are the benefits of owning a UV air sanitizer?
With the ability to kill viruses, mold, and bacteria, a UV air sanitizer greatly reduces the odds of anyone in your home falling ill to these unwanted guests. Along with this primary benefit, a UV sanitizer also reduces odors in your home, particularly the musty smells caused by mold.
In addition, mold and bacteria can grow in the duct system itself. This not only generates odors, it collects and reduces air flow. Getting rid of these pathogens early reduces the rate at which the ductwork needs cleaning, allowing it to operate more effectively.
How do the UV lights work?
As public health warnings tell you, UVA and UVB rays from the sun can cause sunburn and skin cancer by damaging the DNA in skin cells. The light in a sanitizer is referred to as UV-C light and is even more powerful in lethally disrupting cellular functions in such organisms as mold, bacteria, and viruses.
This ability was first put to use by Dr. Niels Finsen to treat victims of tuberculosis skin infections. The result was a Nobel Prize in medicine for Dr. Finsen in 1903. When a UV-C bulb is placed in the air stream of a heating or cooling system, it disinfects the exposed air without the need for chemicals.
What kind of household would benefit most from this system?
While any home can benefit, those with children or individuals with health problems or allergies would benefit the most. After spending all day at school, kids are more likely to bring germs home with them. A UV sanitizer can protect them and everyone else, too.
Also, keep in mind that molds and bacteria can produce spores that are great at triggering allergic reactions and respiratory troubles for vulnerable people. Moreover, homes in damp, humid environments are more likely to have extra mold in the house. One of our UV air sanitizers can reduce the levels of this nuisance.
