Mold in the home has become a major public health issue and the leading culprit when it comes to poor indoor air quality. Mold growth is accelerated in dark spaces with poor air circulation and ventilation.
Forced-air HVAC systems or poorly working systems are susceptible to mold growth. Old ductwork can help spread mold around the home, by harboring and circulating the spores.
Research has found that UV (ultraviolet radiation) lighting is an effective way to combat mold and other biological contaminants in the home. UV rays can be used individually or can be combined with an electronic air cleaner to restrict the growth of germs, allergens, and bacteria.
UV Lighting and HVAC Purifiers are a powerful combination in the battle against mold spores and other contaminants. The UV radiation permeates the mold organism and destroys the cells, thus killing the mold.
Did you know: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns that indoor air may be five times more polluted than outdoor air.
A UV purification system can be installed inside the ductwork, as it can clean the air that blows through the ducts before it circulates throughout your home.
UV light air purifiers are low-maintenance, odorless and silent. But keep in mind; you need to replace the light bulb about every 1-2 years.
