Sterilize Microorganisms with a Germicidal UV Lamp

While indoor air quality products like air filtration systems are ideal for inorganic particles like dust and soot, they can have a harder time with microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria. They’re frequently tiny enough to flow through high-efficiency filters before reaching the rest of your HVAC system. When trapping contaminants isn’t as practical, alternative strategies should be considered to sustain a complete indoor air quality strategy.

You might be happy to find out that ultraviolet light has sanitation qualities. When exposed to UV light, germs are sterilized, becoming dormant or unable to reproduce. Essentially, this lowers the chance they’ll adversely impact your HVAC system or well-being. Considering you deserve clean and healthy indoor air, Hays Cooling, Heating & Plumbing sells and services germicidal UV lights in Phoenix. We’ll take care of the installation process, ensuring you enjoy all of the benefits of a UV germicidal lamp.

How Will a UV Germicidal Light Sterilize Microbes?

Ultraviolet light is why you get sunburned after spending too much time outside. The shorter wavelength that keeps UV light undetectable to our eyes also affects its energy. This energy can disrupt the molecular bonds of genetic material, particularly that of microorganisms like mildew and bacteria. The sudden change may outright eradicate microbes or simply prevent them from reproducing, but the benefits are generally similar.

It’s best to install UV lights directly into your HVAC system. When air passes through during a heating or cooling cycle, airborne microbes are exposed to the UV light while they move past. You can ensure balanced temperatures while also increasing air quality. And because the germicidal lamp is restricted to the ventilation, you won’t need to worry about being affected by the UV rays.

A UV light placed in the ductwork is referred to as an air sanitizing light, and is best suited for microbes currently airborne. An air sanitizing light can easily be 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 stop mold and mildew from benefiting from the coils’ condensation.

Benefits of Germicidal UV Light Installation in Phoenix

UV Lights can be a brilliant investment for improving indoor air quality, offering benefits like: 


Get rid of bad odors

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

Decreased danger of getting sick

Ultraviolet lights decrease the spread of airborne illnesses by killing off virus and other germ particles before they can reach you. These microorganisms are frequently too small for ordinary air filters to capture, but equipment like humidifiers can counter the warm, humid conditions perfect for microbes.



Avoid worsening respiratory complications

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are one of the most common sources of allergy and asthma symptoms. Fortunately, UV lamps installed into your HVAC system can decrease organic pollutants like formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia before they pass through the ductwork.

Encourage greater energy efficiency

Fewer contaminants in your air can also boost energy efficiency, considering they can’t clog up the air filter or essential components.
