In the U.S., keeping all of your space spotless and healthy is a complicated undertaking that touches several features. An item that you possibly don’t realize is useful to indoor air quality is the home’s HVAC and ventilation system, especially the equipment managing the filtering and cleaning the surrounding air. Because your HVAC system covers your entire home, keeping the air moving inside it clean, purified and without dirt is a great idea.
A solution to help accomplish this is with the installation of germicidal UV lights to your HVAC system. Also called sanitizing or purifying lights, these bulbs produce UV light, a light that contains germicidal properties. Germs, bacteria, mold and viruses are visible to the light as they enter your HVAC system, and are removed before they can move greater into your space. We suspect that every the U.S. homeowner will like that!
Keep reading to understand the two largest reasons you want to think about adding UV lights to your house.
While there are some up-front costs for buying UV lights, including materials and labor, the care and price of spare bulbs is surprisingly low, roughly $100 to $150 a year or so in the the U.S. area. The bulbs last anywhere from 9-14 months varying by usage, so effective care will help you achieve the best results from each light, boosting the general efficiency of your HVAC system.
As these lights work to maintain important elements of the HVAC system protected from potential contaminants, the total lifetime of your HVAC system expands, which through the years will save you money. Because your ventilation equipment is an important contributor to your home, ensuring that it’s in good working state is a vital step in maintaining a home and keeping your indoor air fresh and clean.
Unfortunately, once this essential system isn’t well-maintained, more expensive repairs and whole replacements could become necessary as your HVAC equipment strives to operate as efficiently. Ongoing maintenance is key in avoiding these sorts of more expensive issues.
Keeping your home a healthy area to live is more important than ever, and when you incorporate quality UV lights to your home’s HVAC system, you also benefit from putting an additional layer of protection from a variety of potential harmful substances including germs and viruses.
UV light is comprised of germicidal qualities, which indicates it gets rid of germs, bacteria and viruses. These microscopic particles can work their way among your home’s vents. With UV lights, however, it breaks down the formation of the germs or bacteria so they can’t act or reproduce. With the right installation and maintenance, you may minimize the likelihood of falling ill while relaxing in the comfort and privacy of your the U.S. house.
Working with other features such as a high MERV-rating air filter or even a HEPA air filter, you can block and destroy many of the most the U.S.-area frequent pollutants, allergens and airborne particles before they enter your home. The cleaner you have the air in your HVAC system, the healthier it is for your household! A correctly designed air filtration and purification system can help reduce breathing problems while also reducing the effects of seasonal allergies.
Don’t forget the best steps for keeping healthy are good hygiene practices, and the information from health professionals. For additional ideas how HVAC equipment could possibly enhance the quality of air in your house, chat with an expert technician or with an experienced and insured contractor.
