Did you know that the air in your home could be anywhere from two to five times more polluted than the air outside – and that one of the main culprits of that poor air quality is a build-up of microorganisms in your ductwork?
Left unchecked, these microorganisms – pollutants like mold spores, viruses, and pollen spores – can cause respiratory discomfort and even lead to more significant health problems like asthma.
Fortunately, there’s a solution to the micro-critter problem: a germicidal UV light.
Although we can’t see ultraviolet light (UV), it’s there – and it’s bad news for germs in your home. A germicidal UV light (like our Blue-Tube UV light) takes air filtration to another level, killing and preventing reproduction among many of the smallest microorganisms that circulate in your home’s air.
UV lights provide two key benefits:
- Healthier air – Our modern, airtight homes are great for energy efficiency – but air tightness can also work against us by trapping pollutants. UV lights can reduce indoor-air pollution levels significantly, ensuring a healthy environment for you and your family without resorting to the use of toxic chemicals.
- Better HVAC performance – With cleaner air, your home’s heating and cooling systems/a> won’t have to work as hard – which means your equipment will last longer.
