Fight Allergies in Atlanta with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was originally used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Atlanta home’s environment healthier.
A UV lamp can decontaminate HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Atlanta home. It can eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens within 10 seconds of contact.
This can bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid locations where mold and bacteria prosper. These lights may even help your HVAC system last longer, since they keep components clean.
Our Experts can advise you on the system that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Peachtree Service Experts is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and operate constantly. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as fast as 10 seconds, this powerful light blocks contaminants from growing throughout your HVAC system and home.
Two studies have shown how practical UV light is in fighting germs and mold.
In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to eliminate 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.
In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold concentration in a commercial office building’s HVAC unit.
A germicidal system can also wipe out smells and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not effective against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is harmless as long as you take a couple of preventive measures.
The sun emits ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than visible light. It’s at fault for causing painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can cause wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.
The type of light used in a germicidal system is more powerful, so it’s important to let Peachtree Service Experts manage installation and maintenance. You should never look right at the light or allow bare skin be exposed to it.
