3 Benefits of a UV Air Purifier
A UV air purifier or air cleaner emits a type of strong ultraviolet light that the Earth’s atmosphere usually blocks. You can choose a coil sterilization light for the inside of your HVAC system, or you can get an air sterilization light installed inside the ductwork of your Ocean City, Maryland, home. A UV air purifier can reduce bad smells, improve your indoor air quality, and increase the value of your house.
Fewer Bad Smells
UV air cleaners prevent biological growth by damaging the DNA of microorganisms. They also keep insects from multiplying and leaving droppings in your ductwork. That way, you can avoid rotting, stale, or musty smells in your home.
Better Indoor Air Quality
UV air purifiers also kill many of the bacteria and viruses that cause the flu, the common cold, and other illnesses. They can help keep you and your family members healthy.
They’re especially useful for people who have compromised immune systems because of other diseases, and they can reduce asthma and allergy symptoms, rashes, eye irritation, and other issues from pests and biological growth. For the best indoor air quality, you should have your UV air purifier’s light bulb changed at least once per year.
A Higher Value for Your Home
A UV air cleaner can increase your house’s value by extending your HVAC system’s life, preventing inconvenient, costly breakdowns, and reducing damage to walls and ceilings from biological growth. It can also help your air filters last longer and reduce the frequency of duct cleaning.
