Sterilize Microorganisms with a Germicidal UV Lamp

While indoor air quality equipment like air filtration systems are perfect for inorganic particles like dust and soot, they will often have a harder time with microorganisms like viruses and bacteria. They’re commonly tiny enough to flow through high-efficiency filters before reaching the rest of your HVAC equipment. When capturing contaminants isn’t as practical, different strategies should be considered to sustain a complete indoor air quality plan.

You might be surprised to learn that ultraviolet light has sanitation properties. After being exposed to UV light, germs are sterilized, becoming dormant or unable to reproduce. Essentially, this minimizes the odds they’ll adversely impact your HVAC system or well-being. Because you deserve clean and healthy indoor air, Hays Cooling, Heating & Plumbing sells and services germicidal UV lights in Phoenix. We’ll complete the installation process, ensuring you receive the full benefits of a UV germicidal lamp.

How Will a UV Germicidal Light Sterilize Microbes?

Ultraviolet light is why you get sunburnt after spending too much time outdoors. The shorter wavelength that keeps UV light hidden to our eyes also increases its energy. This energy is sufficient to break down the molecular bonds of genetic material, like that of microorganisms including mildew and bacteria. The sudden change can outright destroy microbes or simply keep them from replicating, but the benefits are largely similar.

It’s smart to install UV lights directly into your HVAC system. When air flows through during a heating or cooling cycle, airborne microbes are exposed to the UV light while they move past. You can ensure comfortable temperatures while also enhancing air quality. And because the germicidal lamp is confined to your ductwork, you won’t have to worry about being affected by the UV rays.

A UV light installed within the ductwork is referred to as an air sanitizing light, and is best suited for microbes already airborne. An air sanitizing light is frequently integrated with the HVAC system’s blower motor, where the ultraviolet lamp only turns on during an active heating or cooling cycle.

There are also lights suitable for specific HVAC components like an air conditioner’s condenser coils. Some new coil sanitizing lights will keep mold and mildew from utilizing the coils’ moisture.

Benefits of Germicidal UV Light Installation in Phoenix

UV Lights could be an excellent investment for raising indoor air quality, providing benefits such as: 


Prevent bad odors

Installing UV lamps into your HVAC system can help reduce the presence of intense odors from mold, mildew, bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms growing in the air ducts. Utilizing germicidal ultraviolet rays renders them harmless, but you may need duct cleaning if there is established growth.

Lower chance of getting sick

Ultraviolet lights lessen the distribution of airborne illnesses by killing off virus and bacteria particles before they can affect you. These microorganisms are frequently too little for ordinary air filters to capture, but equipment like humidifiers can discourage the warm, humid conditions suitable for microbes.



Avoid worsening respiratory symptoms

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are one of the many common contributors to allergy and asthma symptoms. Luckily, UV lamps mounted into your HVAC system can decrease organic pollutants such as formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia before they move through the ductwork.

Encourage higher energy efficiency

Fewer contaminants in the air can also boost energy efficiency, since they aren’t clogging up the air filter or key components.
