Why use Ultraviolet Germicidal Lights?

Many people believe that your heating and cooling systems can not only warm and/or cool your home. In actuality, your heating and cooling systems can also improve the overall air quality inside your home and help your body’s immune system with allergies and asthma due to poor indoor air quality. At Advanced Air and Heat, we offer the most technologically advanced products on the market today. We are specialists in the Florida air conditioning market, supplying air conditioners, filters and heating systems that will keep you comfortable in your home year round.

Ultraviolet germicidal lighting is a method of disinfecting air by using an ultraviolet light or a UV bulb with a sufficiently short wavelength to kill microorganisms. The ultraviolet technology process can be used in a variety of ways, such as air and water purification. This process is effective in destroying the nucleic acids in these microorganisms. Due to the UV radiation, their DNA is disrupted and cannot be reproduced. It deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses, mold spores, along with other pathogens so they are unable to grow in the ultraviolet environment which will improve the air quality in your home.

UV lighting and UV bulbs are useful due to their effectiveness. Ultraviolet technology is a non-chemical approach to disinfection and by using UV bulbs for disinfection; it is a simple and inexpensive process. Germicidal ultraviolet lights are used in scientific procedures and air purification systems to kill microorganisms, both in the air and on nearby surfaces. The lights use unique UV bulbs that produce C-type ultraviolet wavelengths, which are dangerous to living organisms and fatal to those small enough to float through the air with dust particles.

Although ultraviolet lighting is effective in removing microorganisms, which are living organisms, you will also need to remove additional non-living particles by using high quality filters. The use of HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters is the best way to improve your overall air quality by removing additional non-living particles, such as dust and pollen. A HEPA air filter is a type of mechanical air filter; it works by forcing air through a fine mesh which can control light orders and captures harmful particles such as allergens, pollen, pet dander, dust mites, viruses, and tobacco smoke. HEPA uses advanced engineering and manufacturing technology to elevate the state-of-the-art air filtration performance. Using HEPA air filters reduces your energy costs while increasing the high capacity performance and life of your air filtering system.
