Benefits of Ultraviolet Lights During A/C Season

Benefits of UltraViolet Lights During AC Season

The season for air conditioning units has arrived. Have you thought of ways to keep your A/C clean and your home safe and healthy? Well, here is a better idea. Try installing ultraviolet lights in your air conditioning system. They are best in keeping your indoor air quality high for better comfort. Additionally, they are low maintenance and only need a small amount of energy to operate.

How UV Lights Work

You have already been told that the indoor air is up to 5 times more polluted than the outside air and this can be pretty alarming. It is because aside from the dirt and dust, bacteria and viruses also circulate through it. With UV lights in your air conditioning system, you can prevent these harmful microorganisms and other irritants from taking over the air you breathe inside your home. The lights break them down and kill them as they pass through.

You can use two types of UV light for your HVAC system. A stick-type UV light is responsible for cleaning the air handler coil and is placed in the return air ducts. Another one is placed near the blower and is responsible for cleaning the moving air. Using them together will truly improve the air you breathe inside.

Benefits of UV Light

  • Improves Indoor Air Quality

UV lights help in controlling the growth of contaminants in the air such as mold, bacteria, and viruses. By emitting harmless ultraviolet lights, it kills existing microbes and prevents them from multiplying and spreading inside your home or commercial place. Using this technology is a great help in keeping the air healthy and safe for anyone who stays inside.

  • Improves Air Conditioner’s Cooling Efficiency

We all know that mold buildup is extremely dangerous to your HVAC system. If left untreated, mold can gather in the layers of the evaporator coils. It can affect the proper functions of your system and will allow the unit to consume more energy to give your home the proper cooling it needs. Ultraviolet lights get rid of these molds to keep your unit running in optimum performance.

Nothing beats a comfortable home this summer season. And to have one, you need a properly functioning HVAC system and a clean and breathable indoor air. All of which are possible by installing an Ultraviolet light in your unit.
