Are you or a family member highly-sensitive to allergens, mold, and other indoor pollutants? If you are one of the many Americans for whom keeping the air in your home or office free from harmful contaminants is a top priority, UV lights air purifiers may be for you.
UV lights can be added to your central HVAC system to eliminate any potentially harmful microorganisms before they enter your living space. They can also help keep your heating and air conditioning system clean. The coil, a prime component of your HVAC system, stays wet several months out of the year, making it a top site for microbial growth. Though UV lights are a great way to manage airborne contaminants running through your system, however, they are not the only option for safeguarding your indoor air quality.
The heating and air conditioning pros at H&H recommend installing a better air filter in addition to your UV lights to support healthier indoor air quality. Systems with a HEPA-rated air filter can trap tiny particles 0.1-microns or smaller in size (700 times smaller than a human hair), such as mold spores. This addition will allow your filter system to trap a large number of harmful contaminants before you have to rely on your UV light system to destroy them.
