UV Air Purifiers / UV Air Cleaners
What does a UV light do?
A germicidal UV light
system can significantly reduce the amount of viable airborne
micro-organisms found in HVAC units. UVC light eliminates molds, bacteria, yeasts,
and viruses. These are naturally
occurring contaminants that infiltrate every home and office on this planet.
Micro-organisms are living creatures that are so small a microscope is
required to view them. HEPA air cleaners are efficient enough to capture
many molds and bacteria, but the micro-organisms remain alive, continuing to
grow and reproduce directly on the filtration media.
What are the primary benefits?
UV-C light will significantly reduce the amount of microbials in ductwork
and air space, helping to reduce possible health problems associated with
inhaling microbials. UV-C light is also beneficial in keeping HVAC coils
free of mold which increases system efficiency.
What is the importance of UV-C light
products for indoor environments?
Overall, people spend 90% of their time indoors, in a "closed" environment
with little or no exchange of outside air. Such an environment can become a
breeding ground for potentially harmful pathogens, and in high numbers, can
prove hazardous to human health.
What is UV light?
UV stands for Ultra-Violet light. Ultraviolet light represents the frequency
of light between 200 nanometers (nm) and 400nm and cannot be seen with the
naked eye. Within the UV spectrum lie three distinct bands of light: UV-A,
UV-B, and UV-C. Longwave UV light (315nm to 400nm), or UV-A, refers to what
we commonly call "black light." UV-B (280nm to 315nm), or midrange UV,
causes sunburn. Germicidal UV light (200nm to 280nm), or UV-C, is
effective in microbial control. Research has demonstrated that within this
UV-C band the most efficient frequency for microbial destruction is between
254nm and 265nm. Germicidal lamps that produce the majority of their output
in this range will be the most effective in microbial control/destruction.
How does it work?
UV-C light penetrates the cell walls of the microbe, causing cellular or
genetic damage. The affected microbe is neutralized or becomes unable to
reproduce. Intensity and exposure time will determine how quickly a
susceptible microbe is disabled by UV-C light.
Do I still need an air filter?
Yes. An induct UV light system is designed to be used in addition to a dust
filter or electronic air cleaner and the filtration of dust particles will
also aid in keeping the bulb(s) of the UV light system
clean. However, filters are inefficient at dealing with microscopic
bacteria, molds, and viruses and are incapable of preventing mold from
growing on a surface. A UV-C Light System contributes significantly to the
reduction of the small microbial organisms that pass through filters and
into the general air stream. Proper placement of a UV light system above the
coil, or a surface area prone to microbial growth aids in reducing the
amount of viable microbes on that surface.
How much maintenance is required on a UV light
Lamps should be cleaned every six (6) months to remove any dust accumulation
on the bulbs that might lessen the effectiveness of the UV-C light. The Dust
Free UV-C light bulbs have a service life of 9,000 hours, or approximately
375 days. Annual replacement of the bulb(s) is recommended. Most UV-C light
systems should be left on continuously as turning them on and off ages the
bulbs and power supplies.
much electricity does induct UV-C light use?
Each tube uses approximately the same
electricity as a 40-watt light bulb.
How many lamps do you recommend for induct home
One lamp is normally sufficient to
control microbial growth on the coils and in the drain pan. The lamp size
used should be proportional to the space that is available in the coil and
drain pan area. However, since each HVAC system is as different as the
building within which it functions, the UV-C Light System most suitable for
your needs should be recommended and installed by a professional trained in
UV-C light use and application.
Why should I consider installing a UV light?
Indoor air can be some of the poorest quality air we experience. When we
leave our windows shut, air is constantly recirculated throughout our homes.
Over time this air can become stagnant and bacteria, molds, yeasts, and
viruses more concentrated. These concentrations can cause inflammation of
mucous membranes, upper respiratory problems, and aggravate asthma and other
breathing ailments. A germicidal
UV light system assists
in combating high levels of these micro-organism concentrations.
Could you benefit from healthier air?
Yes. Poor indoor air
quality is a problem that affects everyone. Individuals with weakened immune
systems, allergies, and asthma benefit the most from improving air quality.
Households with children or elderly individuals will also
benefit from the improved air quality.
Your HVAC air handling system can operate with more efficiency as the coils,
drain pan, and ductwork stay cleaner longer.
