While most of us use air cleaning devices that remove particles and microorganisms, the effectiveness of these devices may be limited to a certain extent by what they can do when it comes to air treatment. This is especially the case in a home where there is someone suffering from asthma or allergies or if the house has mold problems.
Having UV light treatment equipment installed will go a long way to resolving this problem. UV lights are known to prevent the buildup of pollutants, prevent mold growth and UV lights require low maintenance.
UV light air treatment is sometimes mandatory in certain buildings like schools and commercial buildings. They can also be installed in homes to provide the same level of air quality as these spaces. UV lights are usually located in the ventilation systems of houses to provide the needed protection. In fact, research has shown that there is a 99% reduction in biological contaminants after UV light equipment is installed on building ventilation.
UV light treatment equipment is always energy-efficient, as well. An average system will only require between 15-85 watts of energy to provide the needed level of efficiency 24 hours a day. Since air re-circulates around the house about 50 times a day, the UV lights are always at work destroying contaminants. Why not talk to the experts and see if this type of air purifying technology is right for you?
