Protect Your Health with This Important Indoor Air Quality Product

There are a number of things that can influence comfort inside your home. It’s possible, though, to get so caught up with your HVAC system that you overlook an important factor to comfort: the quality of the air in your home. Poor indoor air quality can negatively affect not only your comfort, but your health as well. If you want to prevent such issues within your living space, you need the right type of indoor air quality system in place.

One of the best ways to protect your health and the health of your family is with a UV air purifier, also referred to as UV germicidal lights. These differ from your standard air filter or even an electronic air cleaner. They don’t remove dust and dirt from the air in your home. Rather, they destroy the biological pollutants within your home that put your health at risk.

Biological Contaminants Cannot Just Be Filtered Out

There are a number of reasons that biological pollutants cannot simply be filtered out. First, these pollutants include things like bacteria and mold spores, which are too small for even the most efficient air filter to grab. Second, biological pollutants reproduce.

Dust and dirt don’t have this capability so you don’t have to worry about it as much. But if biological contaminants are trapped on a filter, then they can continue to accumulate and create new pollutants.

Fortunately, UV lights disrupt the biological processes of these microorganisms. When UV lights are confined to the HVAC system in your home, it poses no threat to you, your home, family or friends. It does, however, devastate these pollutants at a cellular level, stopping them also from reproducing. Take a step towards cleaner air and a healthier home today by considering the installation of UV lights.
