3 Surprising Benefits of HVAC UV Light Systems, Monroeville, Alabama

Although it may be hard to believe, the air quality inside most homes is actually far dirtier than it is outside. This is because your HVAC system slowly collects dust and particles inside its intake and ductwork. When the AC turns on, it can send those particles into your home, reducing the indoor air quality. There are dozens of air purifying systems for air conditioning units, but picking the right option for your budget and needs can be a challenge. Here are a few benefits of using UV lights to improve your home’s indoor air quality.

3 Benefits of UV Light Purifiers For Your Air Conditioning Unit

1. Gets Rid of Viruses & Germs

Air ConditioningUV lights are powerful enough to kill most germs, viruses, and bacteria inside your HVAC unit. This helps reduce the number of airborne bacteria, mold spores, and viruses that enter your home through the AC system. Best of all, it works without any expensive cleaning chemicals, making it ideal for families suffering from allergies or other upper respiratory conditions.

2. Costs Less

UV light purification systems are incredibly affordable when installed by a professional. Instead of worrying about additional repairs and maintenance for a separate system, you’ll simply have to monitor the bulbs and replace them when they burn out. Most UV bulbs are relatively cheap and can be installed quickly during a routine HVAC maintenance appointment.

3. Improves Energy Efficiency

Mold spores, bacteria, and other microbial particles clog your filters and make it harder for your air conditioning system to distribute cool air throughout the house. With a UV light purifier in place, the number of microbes that make it to the filter is dramatically reduced. This means your system can more efficiently cool your house, reducing your energy bills during the hottest part of the year.
