What are Ultraviolet Light Kits?

August 9, 2022 | Blog

Breathe in and breathe out, but make sure the air you’re breathing is healthy! Your home is prone to collecting a variety of harmful indoor pollutants. If action is not taken, poor indoor air quality can be detrimental to the health of those in your household.

Thankfully, ultraviolet light kits may be the answer to achieving healthy air! Our professional technicians at Air Tech of Conroe are here to keep your air quality in excellent condition. Read ahead to learn the benefits of UV light and how they work!

How Do Ultraviolet Light Kits Work?

Ultraviolet light is a form of natural air purification. It produces electromagnetic energy that inactivates airborne bacteria and prevents them from reproducing. In short, UV kits are great for reducing the airborne contaminants in your household air.

UV light waves range from long-wave (sunlight) to short-wave. Short waves have more energy and vibrate faster, helping decrease bacteria in your home. A professional can install UV light into your HVAC system to improve the quality of your oxygen.

Benefits of Using Ultraviolet Light For Air Purification

Air purification methods are essential for maintaining good indoor air quality! UV light kits have many benefits when they become a component in your heating and cooling system.

Illness and Allergy Prevention

Consistent exposure to airborne pollutants can negatively impact your health. Shortwave UV-C light is commonly used for air purification and sterilizes up to 99% of harmful bacteria. This form of light targets and inactivates bacterial pollutants, such as:

  • Mold
  • Fungi
  • Mildew
  • Bacterial Spores
  • Most viruses

Inhaling these contaminants can cause several health issues. Exposure can cause respiratory issues, chest tightness and trigger asthma attacks. Professional HVAC services can install the necessary materials to help your home’s indoor air quality.

Improves Airflow

As your air conditioning system circulates air, debris can collect inside the unit over time. Buildup can restrict airflow, creating inconsistent temperatures and overworking your system. Airflow obstruction creates wear and tear on your unit, shortening its lifespan.

UV light removes particulates and helps clean your unit’s internal parts. When airborne particulates are removed, your system can run without any blockages. The upkeep will keep your air conditioner functioning at peak efficiency and reduce future maintenance costs.

Increases Energy Efficiency

When your air conditioner functions properly, it doesn’t overwork itself by running for long periods of time. Airflow obstructions can prevent air from circulating, causing your system to work harder.

UV light reduces debris buildup and increases HVAC energy efficiency. Energy efficiency reflects in your energy bill and can significantly lower its cost. Incorporating this light into your system is an investment that may save you money in the long run!

Removes Bad Odors

Cooking and cleaning are necessary, but they can occasionally produce nasty smells. Luckily, ultraviolet air purification can help remove the poor odors in your household. Similar to breaking down bacteria, UV light does the same with odor-causing chemicals!
