What is UV air purification?
Ultraviolet air purification uses UV light to disinfect the air inside a building. In these air purifiers, there is a UV mercury lamp that emits short-wave ultraviolet light (UV-C light) that targets microorganisms in the air. The light is powerful enough to damage microorganisms’ DNA, thus killing them, which is why this process is referred to as “UV germicidal irradiation.”
This process is generally quiet, so you can keep the purifier in any room of your house or commercial property without disturbing your daily activities.
What are the benefits of having a UV air purifier?
Some of the main benefits of UV air purifiers include:
They help kill germs and bacteria
If you suffer from asthma or other respiratory diseases negatively impacted by poor air quality, having a UV air purifier can help enhance your home’s or business’s air quality. UV air purifiers can kill most germs and bacteria, including mold.
They help reduce odor
UV light air purifiers target several types of microorganisms and air particles, including odor. These purifiers help neutralize the air through oxidation, which is what allows the air to smell “clean.” In some cases, these purifiers can even reduce the odor of cigarette smoke.
They require very little maintenance
Owners are advised to perform biannual maintenance checks and regularly replace the filters with air filtration systems. However, there are no filters with UV air purifiers, so the only maintenance necessary involves changing the UV light bulb every few years. If you experience a mechanical issue with your device, we can send a technician to repair it.
They reduce dust, thus reducing cleaning
UV air purifiers can also help eliminate dust in the air, meaning you won’t have to worry about dust building up around your home every week. This can help reduce your cleaning time, making that one less chore for you to worry about.
There are different models of air purifiers with UV light, so the benefits from specific models will focus on size, energy usage, and strength. Our sales representatives can go over these details if you are interested in getting a new UV air purification system in Davie.
How does an air purifier with UV light compare to other air filtration systems?
Ultraviolet air purifiers and air filters serve similar purposes but achieve different results. When compared with air filters, UV light air purifiers:
Can kill smaller air particles and germs
Air filters are effective in filtering out many air particles, like pet dander. However, they might not be able to filter out smaller particles, allowing particles such as dust to get through. Also, air filters can’t kill germs or bacteria, unlike ultraviolet air purifiers.
Some of the pollutants and pathogens that ultraviolet air purifiers can target include:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Fungus and other odor particles
- Cigarette smoke
- Different types of bacteria
- Microorganisms from airborne diseases
Can exist outside of your HVAC system
Many air filtration systems work in conjunction with air conditioning systems, using the ventilation system as its primary method of receiving and blowing air.
However, with UV air purifiers, these disinfecting devices can exist outside of your HVAC system. Many are compact and can be placed in a convenient location of your home to filter the air. In fact, many people opt to use a UV air purifier as a complementary tool to their central HVAC system.
