Ultraviolet Lights

UV lights are placed by the coil inside your HVAC system. The lights are used to kill mold and bacteria before it even enters your living space as the air is blown through the vents.

UV lights are a great solution to keep mold from growing on the coil of your HVAC unit. If that’s the only indoor air quality issue you’re trying to resolve, then UV light is the right choice for you. If you want a whole-house air filter, the air scrubbers would be the better choice.

The Benefits of Ultraviolet Lights

Ultraviolet germicidal air irradiation systems (UVGI) can clear your air without causing skyrocketing energy bills. While UV light has been used as a disinfectant for over a hundred years, a modern UV light installation can address more pollutants than ever.

Upper room UVGI systems gradually introduce clean air into your space, so they’re particularly important in crowded rooms or unventilated environments. Their capacity to address pollutants makes them a favorite option for commercial kitchens.

If you’re careful about UV light maintenance, your system will even extend the life of your HVAC unit.

Air Scrubbers

An air scrubber is an indoor air quality device that uses a search-and-retrieve method to eliminate contaminants from your home’s air. As the air flows through your ductwork system, the air scrubber produces negative ions.

The negative ions find and bring back pollutants floating in your air that are too small to be captured by a normal air filter.

The Benefits of Air Scrubbers

Air scrubbers attach to your ductwork directly and can reduce 90% of your home’s airborne pathogens, including swine flu, E. coli, and MRSA. They can: 

  • Extend your HVAC system’s life span by preventing debris and dust from entering your HVAC filter. This will protect your coils from damage and keep your blower functioning smoothly. 
  • Reduce dust, pollen, and other allergens. An air scrubber can alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms. 
  • Remove lingering odors like chemical scents, burnt food, and mildew. 
  • Kill SARS-CoV-2 particles at a surface kill rate of 99.98%. 
  • Eliminate 50 times more contaminants than HVAC systems. 
  • Address volatile organic compounds and particulate matter, including vapors and smoke. 
  • Prevent dust buildup in your home.

UV Lighting FAQs

In short, yes. UV-C light can kill up to 99% of viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. It can reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2 by deactivating airborne particles. It handles influenza viruses, but it loses efficacy with TB-causing bacteria.

However, UVGI systems can’t manage infectious droplets, so it’s no replacement for surface disinfection.

UVGI systems allow air to pass through a disinfection zone via your HVAC unit or an open window. They can’t physically remove the pathogens they process, but they prevent them from being infectious.

Infrared and UV light occur on a spectrum, and only lamps with the correct wavelength have a disinfecting effect. UV-C light has a wavelength of 200 to 280 nm and is the most destructive option on the market.

Most household lamps offer 5,000 µW/cm2 at distances of 15 inches, but more powerful UV lights can achieve a rate of 10,000 µW/cm2.
