If you’re constantly finding yourself struggling with allergies or your home being too dry, your indoor air quality might be the problem. It might surprise you how much your indoor air quality affects your life. Increasing your indoor air quality can improve your quality of life, and while there are a few solutions to this problem, a UV-C Air Sanitizer System can do this effectively while bringing you a multitude of other benefits.
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is basically the quality of the air within your home or other buildings and specifically refers to the air’s effect on your health and comfort. IAQ can be affected by a variety of factors such as smoking indoors, excess moisture, and outdoor sources such as outdoor air pollution or common in-air allergens.
Basically, your IAQ is important because it can have a great impact on your health. It can even contribute to things like allergies, colds, and asthma.
A UV-C system can help improve your indoor air quality and reduce health problems, but odds are, you’ve never heard of it.
What is a UV-C system?
Typically, your air conditioner and heating system can be a place for mold and bacteria to develop. A UV-C Sanitizer System is a UV lighting system that goes inside your heating and air conditioning ductwork, meaning you have to have ductwork installed in order to use it. UV-C kills the bacteria and viruses within your ductwork, removing allergens and pathogens.
It does this by destroying the molecular bonds which hold the DNA of the various viruses and bacteria together. UV-C light can even kill drug-resistant bacteria, making it one of the most powerful methods for killing pathogens. This sanitizes the airflow running through your house, creating a healthier environment. The best part is that this system is quick to install.
What are the benefits of a UV-C system?
There are multiple benefits to this system. Improving your airflow is going to help keep you and your family healthy. It can help alleviate issues that were being caused by poor IAQ, such as illness and lack of comfort. UV-C can even reduce smells and odors within your home.
Beyond the health benefits, the UV-C system also adds to the efficiency of your HVAC system. Normally, your HVAC system will have a build-up of organic material on its various components. UV-C prevents this and keeps all your surface clean, which means it keeps your HVAC running smoother and more effectively. It also reduces the amount of maintenance your HVAC system will need.
UV-C systems work for heating, air conditioning, or a combination system. If you’re looking to improve the comfort of your home and make your HVAC system more efficient, Home Air Plus, Inc can help.
