Fight Allergies in Voorhees with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was initially used to heal tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to clean hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Voorhees home’s environment cleaner.
A UV lamp can decontaminate HVAC systems and enhance the air quality in your Voorhees home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms within 10 seconds of contact.
This can bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid climates where mold and bacteria flourish. These lights may even help your HVAC unit last 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 Atmostemp Service Experts is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are installed 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 quickly as 10 seconds, this potent light stops contaminants from growing 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 take care of 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 equipment.
A germicidal system can also take care of scents and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not useful against dust, which is best controlled by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you use some safety measures.
The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can see. It’s responsible for causing painful sunburns. Prolonged 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 Atmostemp Service Experts manage installation and maintenance. You should never look right at the light or permit bare skin touch it.
