The days are shorter, the air is crisper, and your nose is stuffier than ever. That’s right, it’s cold and flu season! Every year, as temperatures drop and we spend more time indoors, the risk of becoming sick increases. Did you know that the common cold is most contagious in winter?
While there’s no surefire way to prevent every cold or flu bug that comes your way, there are steps you can take to improve your home’s indoor air quality and lower your chances of getting sick. One such step is investing in a UV air purifier. Here’s how a UV air purifier can help prevent winter colds.
UV air purifiers work by circulating air through a chamber where it is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. This UV light kills viruses and bacteria in the air, making it a great way to reduce the spread of illness in your home. In fact, UV air purifiers have been shown to be up to 99% effective at killing viruses and bacteria!
Because a UV air purifier eliminates viruses and bacteria from the air in your home, it also reduces your family’s exposure to those sickness-causing germs. This is especially important in winter when we tend to spend more time indoors where conditions are ideal for the spread of germs. By using a UV air purifier, you can create a cleaner, healthier environment for your family—and help them stay well all season long.
There are many different types and brands of air purifiers on the market, so it can be tough to know where to start.
The Oxyquantum LED air purifier by Nature’s Home uses an innovative way to safely remove toxins from the air. The unit consists of a “U” shaped combination UVV and UVC light sources, which are mounted in HVAC ventilation ducts where they effectively oxidize harmful compounds without releasing any unpleasant smells or fumes while also killing bacteria that could potentially cause illness if inhaled by people living nearby.
UV air purifiers are a great way to help eliminate winter colds by reducing the number of viruses and bacteria in the air. By investing in a UV air purifier, you can create a cleaner, healthier environment for your family—and help them stay well all season long!
