Why should I have an air purifier? Will it improve my home’s indoor air quality? These are some of the best questions to ask yourself. When looking for ways to make sure you are breathing clean air inside your home, there are steps you can take. One of the more effective methods of keeping your indoor air cleaner is with UV air purifiers. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning will share how UV air purifiers work and why they should be installed in every home.
What Do UV Air Purifiers Do?
A UV air purifier essentially makes the air cleaner inside the home. Inside the home there are tiny particles that contaminate the air. Depending on the environment inside the home, there can be a number of different contaminates. Some homes may be filled with dust particles as well as pollen. However, that is not all that can be found inside the air of the home. It is common for have mold spores, dust mite waste, dead skin flakes and pet dander along with bacteria and viruses.
How Does a UV Air Purifier Work
An UV air purifier is either electronic or works by ionization which attracts the unwanted particles in the air. After the UV purifier has attracted the unwanted particles and or contaminates, the UV light does the rest. The UV light generated by the purifier is a lamp that sends out low frequencies of ultraviolet radiation that kills the particles in the air. Knowing that UV purifiers put out ultraviolet radiation can lead to some concern. As you know, ultraviolet radiation can be harmful to the skin and cause skin cancer as well as damage the eyes. Some homeowners express concern and wonder if UV air purifiers are safe for the household. In short, yes, UV air purifiers are safe. An UV air purifier does use an ultraviolet lamp to recreate the sun which is capable of killing bacteria, viruses and other harmful particles. These lamps are not installed directly inside the home. The UV purifier lamps are installed in the ductwork throughout the home. The air purifier is installed inside the air duct which means that no one inside the home will be exposed to the UV lamps. As the air is taken in by the air conditioning system, the air will pass by the UV air purifier. As the air passes the air purifier in the air ducts, the microorganisms and other particulates are burned by the lamps and killed. These particles will not circulate back through the home which is how the air is cleaned.
