Sterilize Microorganisms with a Germicidal UV Lamp

While indoor air quality products like air filtration systems are well suited for inorganic particles including dust and soot, they will often have a harder time with microbes like viruses and bacteria. They’re commonly small enough to flow through high-efficiency filters before reaching the rest of your HVAC system. When catching contaminants isn’t as practical, other strategies should be explored to maintain a complete indoor air quality strategy.

You might be pleased to hear that ultraviolet light has sanitation qualities. If exposed to UV light, germs are sterilized, becoming dormant or unable to reproduce. Essentially, this lowers the chance they’ll adversely impact your HVAC system or well-being. Since you deserve clean and healthy indoor air, Canyon State Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing sells and services germicidal UV lights in Phoenix. We’ll take care of the installation process, seeing to it that you receive the full benefits of a UV germicidal lamp.

How Will a UV Germicidal Light Sterilize Microbes?

Ultraviolet light is the reason you get sunburned after spending too much time outdoors. The shorter wavelength that keeps UV light invisible to our eyes also enhances its energy. This energy is enough to disrupt the molecular bonds of genetic material, including that of microorganisms such as mildew and bacteria. The changes can outright kill microbes or simply prevent them from replicating, but the results are mostly similar.

It’s a good idea to install UV lights straight into your HVAC system. When air passes through during a heating or cooling cycle, airborne microbes come in contact with the UV light as they move past. You can preserve comfortable temperatures while also improving air quality. And because the germicidal lamp is restricted to the air ducts, you don’t need to worry about being affected by the UV rays.

A UV light mounted within the ductwork is considered an air sanitizing light, and is ideal for microbes currently airborne. Your air sanitizing light is frequently integrated with the HVAC system’s blower motor, where the ultraviolet lamp only comes on during an active heating or cooling cycle.

There are also lights suitable for specific HVAC components like the condenser coils on your air conditioner. Some new coil sanitizing lights will keep mold and mildew from benefiting from the coils’ condensation.

Reasons to Schedule Germicidal UV Light Installation in Phoenix

UV Lights are an excellent investment for enhancing indoor air quality, featuring benefits such as: 


Get rid of unpleasant odors

Installing UV lamps into your HVAC system can help reduce the presence of potent odors from mold, mildew, bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms growing in the air ducts. Applying germicidal ultraviolet rays renders them harmless, but you may need duct cleaning if there is existent growth.


Lower danger of getting sick

Ultraviolet lights reduce the spread of airborne illnesses by killing off virus and other germ particles before they can reach you. These microorganisms are often too little for conventional air filters to capture, but products like humidifiers can prevent the warm, humid conditions perfect for microbes.


Avoid worsening respiratory complications

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are one of the most common sources of allergy and asthma symptoms. Luckily, UV lamps fitted into your HVAC system can decrease organic pollutants like formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia before they pass through the ductwork.


Promote greater energy efficiency

Fewer contaminants in the air can also boost energy efficiency, considering they aren’t clogging up the air filter or essential components.
