Worried about Illness as the Weather Changes? Consider UV Lights

As the weather finally starts to warm up, you feel relieved. But a major change in the weather can also bring with it certain concerns about your health. If you are worried about catching the cold or flu, or if your allergies tend to act up when the weather changes, you might want to consider a UV light system for your HVAC system.

How UV Lights Work

UV germicidal lights are ultraviolet lights that are installed in your HVAC system. UV light can kill microorganisms like bacteria and viruses on impact. As the air moves through your HVAC system, the air is purified as soon as it reaches the light. This won’t do anything for allergens like pollen and pet dander, but it will kill off the particles that do the most harm to your health.

Are They the Right Choice for Every Home?

There are a few major benefits to UV germicidal light systems that other air purifying systems do not have. One of the major benefits is that you won’t have to worry about them blocking the airflow in your HVAC system. Sometimes, air filtration systems that are not properly selected and fitted for an HVAC system can run into major problems. They can get dirty too quickly, effectively blocking airflow into the HVAC system and damaging the mechanism of the air conditioning and/or heating system as it becomes overworked.

UV germicidal lights won’t block the airflow to your heater or air conditioner, as long as they are properly installed. They work well with most forced-air heating and cooling systems, and they should not have a negative impact on your health either. UV germicidal lights can be an excellent choice for nearly any homeowner looking to better the indoor air quality.
