UV Air Purifier in Southern California by AG Heating & Air Conditioning
Indoor air quality has a major impact on your comfort and health because most people spend about 90% of their time indoors. If you have a forced-air heating and air conditioning system—one that moves air to the rooms of your home through a set of ducts—you might assume that you already have protection from most of the harmful contaminants that could circulate through the air—your air filter.
The air filter does remove a large percentage of the particles that would otherwise move back into the air stream—but only particles up to a certain size. Very small living organisms like bacteria, viruses, and mold spores may still pass through, troubling your family members with asthma and allergies and potentially spreading illness. For protection from these contaminants, your safest bet is having a separate air purifier system in place, and the most effective system against living contaminants is a UV light air purifying system.

How Germicidal UV Light Improves Air Quality
UV air purifier systems use ultraviolet light to actually sterilize the air moving through the HVAC system. Some of the worst contaminants you can find in the air are airborne microorganisms—tiny living organisms such as bacteria, viruses, and mold. Mold spores are an allergy trigger for many, bacteria is linked to the outbreak of some diseases, and viruses can spread illness.
UV light kills these organisms on contact and sterilizes them so that they cannot reproduce. This makes them harmless for you to breathe in and reduces their presence within your air. UV air purifiers can help to alleviate respiratory issues, reduce allergy symptoms, and slow down the occurrence of illnesses, so that you, your family members, and your guests can breathe easily.
Installing a UV Air Purifier
Installing a UV air purifier is not a simple task for someone without any knowledge of HVAC systems. You want to install the lights in such a way that all of the air that passes through your HVAC system is cleaned. Sometimes, UV lights are packaged within an air cleaning system that also contains filters or other air cleaning technology. Or, it may be that just the lights are installed within the system.
Whatever setup you may have for your UV germicidal lights, make sure that you have a professional setting them up. A professional installation will help to ensure that all of the air that gets sucked into your HVAC system is sterilized by the ultraviolet light and that the system is working properly.
For all of your indoor air quality needs, you can count on the experts at AG Heating & Air Conditioning to help you out.
