Fight Allergies in Medina with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was originally used to heal tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Medina home’s environment purer.

A UV lamp can decontaminate HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Medina home. It can eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.

This can lead to relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid climates where mold and bacteria prosper. These lights may even help your HVAC system work longer, since they keep pieces clean.

Our Experts can advise you on the unit that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are placed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and run continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to destroy the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as little as 10 seconds, this strong light stops contaminants from spreading throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in fighting germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to wipe out 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold levels in a commercial office building’s HVAC unit.

A germicidal system can also neutralize odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not effective against dust, which is best managed by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you use some safety measures.

The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a lower wavelength than light you can detect. It’s behind leading to painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can result in wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more concentrated, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning manage installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or permit bare skin to come into contact with it.
