    Advantages of UV Germicidal Lights


  • Advantages of UV Germicidal Lights

    July 12, 2014

    Despite the modern advancements in Orlando air conditioning, the air quality in your home is probably not at its best state. External contaminants such as mold spores, microscopic bacteria, fungi, dirt and dust are very real threats. Poor air quality can lead to a number of respiratory health problems and is especially harmful for people who suffer from asthma and other related diseases.

    Oust Airborne Contaminants with UV Germicidal Lighting

    If your home is equipped with central air, you should strongly consider investing in UV germicidal lights as the dark recesses of the AC system’s duct work are where the vast majority of contaminants flourish. Routine maintenance is rarely effective in eliminating these completely, but with the help of this long-used lighting technology, you can ensure your home’s air quality is healthy and pure.

    Originally used in hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities as a means of protecting patients and keeping bacteria counts to zero, the application of UV germicidal lighting has since expanded to homes and businesses. These devices are simple and highly effective at eliminating biological pollutants, but the best part is in addition to killing the current threat, they prevent future growth as well.

    Here are a few reasons why American Air & Heat advises all residents to use this Orlando AC service. Given the tropical climate that Florida is known for, especially the high humidity levels during the summer months throughout most of the state, the potential for pollutant growth is much higher in relation to other regions of the country. UV germicidal lights are designed to emit short wavelengths of energy that kill contaminants on contact, and they are inexpensive and easy to set up.

    Our Florida AC repair technicians have performed countless installations of these devices. While exposure to ultraviolet radiation is indeed unhealthy for humans, the amount generated by UV germicidal lighting is minimal and is directed solely towards the pollutants inside of the AC system. The experts at American Heat & Air are here to help keep you breathing freely!
