Benefits of UV Lights
You will gain many advantages by having a UV air purifier installed in your HVAC system. Besides keeping you and the members of your household free from sicknesses and allergic reactions, a UV air purifier does its job efficiently while consuming less power than most filters and other competing air cleansing systems. This is because many of these units depend on the HVAC blower to force air through the filter, and other systems have fans that must be continually operated to be effective. Conversely, a UV air purifier uses a fraction of that energy to operate throughout all four seasons.
Another benefit of UV air purifiers is the fact that they require very little maintenance. All you need to be concerned with is switching the light bulbs out at scheduled intervals. Many times, this is either annually or every couple of years.
Due to the way that UV air purifiers are designed, produced, and installed, they prevent humans and pets from being accidentally exposed to UV light. That said, any minor exposure to the light should not harm anyone. HVAC professionals are careful, however, to aim the light upward throughout the ducts, just in case.
Another thing that folks have expressed concern about is whether or not these air purifiers produce extra ozone that is then redistributed into the environment. Though this may seem to be an issue, these devices don’t produce ozone at serious levels. This is especially true for UV air purifiers with ionizers. These only release ozone through a process that discharges it electrically.
