Technicians can install UV germicidal lights into HVAC systems to help eliminate contaminants from your indoor air. By using powerful rays of ultraviolet light, UV germicidal lights are able to kill and control many contaminants. Because homes are becoming more properly sealed, indoor air contaminant issues are becoming more abundant. This means cooler homes in the summer and warmer homes in the winter; however, it also means more contaminants can hang out in our homes! There is good news though; there are several different options for eliminating these pollutants, and one of them is installing a UV germicidal light.
Benefits of UV Lights
There are many benefits of installing a UV germicidal light in your home. The most noteworthy advantage is its removal of mold, bacteria, and viruses, which will greatly improve your indoor air quality. This means that if you or someone in your home is suffering from asthma or allergies, a UV germicidal light can reduce contaminants in the air that could possibly trigger these conditions. Also, UV germicidal lights can help reduce odors, reduce clogs in your drain lines by preventing algae growth, and maintain a cleaner coil.
The installation of a UV germicidal light is a fairly simple install but should be done by a professional. The maintenance is very low key, and only involves replacing the bulb about every two years! The price of the bulbs vary depending on which brand is purchased but are relatively low in cost. In addition, the energy cost associated with having the light running averages around $25 for the whole year! This expense is very low, and the reward is great: clean, fresh air for years to come.
If you think having a UV germicidal light installed in your home will benefit your air quality, give O’Brien Service Company a call. We can install it for you, as well as set it up on a maintenance plan to have the bulb changed every year. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact our office, or visit Housesogreen.com for more information on UV germicidal lights.
“It was a real pleasure to meet Will last week. He was so pleasant, so polite and…so knowledgeable! We had several questions for him given the changes we had made last year–and he was right ‘on top’ of every aspect of our questions. In addition, of course, he did all of the regular maintenance work, explained the new UV lamp technology for us–and installed it at our request. We would be happy to see him here again next year!” -Elaine & Bill C. (Wilmington 28403)
