Sterilize Microorganisms with a Germicidal UV Lamp

While indoor air quality equipment like air filtration systems are ideal for inorganic particles such as dust and soot, they may have a harder time with microbes like viruses and bacteria. They’re commonly small enough to slide through high-efficiency filters before reaching the rest of your heating and cooling. When catching contaminants isn’t as effective, alternative strategies should be considered to maintain a complete indoor air quality strategy.

You might be surprised to find out that ultraviolet light has sanitation properties. After being in contact with UV light, microbes are sterilized, becoming inactive or unable to reproduce. In effect, this lowers the odds they’ll negatively impact your HVAC system or health. Considering you deserve clean and healthy indoor air, UGI Heating, Cooling & Plumbing sells and services germicidal UV lights in Eastern Pennsylvania. We’ll handle the installation process, making sure you enjoy the full benefits of a UV germicidal lamp.

How Can a UV Germicidal Light Sterilize Microbes?

Ultraviolet light is the reason you get sunburned after spending too much time outside. The short wavelength that keeps UV light hidden to our eyes also affects its energy. This energy is sufficient to break down the molecular bonds of genetic material, including that of microorganisms including mildew and bacteria. The sudden change could outright destroy microbes or simply prevent them from replicating, but the benefits are mostly similar.

It’s a good idea to install UV lights directly into your HVAC system. While air passes through during a heating or cooling cycle, airborne microbes come in contact with the UV light as they move past. You can ensure balanced temperatures while also increasing air quality. And since the germicidal lamp is restricted to your ductwork, you never have to worry about being affected by the UV rays.

A UV light placed inside the ductwork is considered an air sanitizing light, and is best suited for microbes currently airborne. Your air sanitizing light can easily be integrated with the HVAC system’s blower motor, where the UV lamp only turns on during an active heating or cooling cycle.

There are also lights designed for specific HVAC hardware like an air conditioner’s condenser coils. Quality coil sanitizing lights will prevent mold and mildew from utilizing the coils’ moisture.

Reasons to Schedule Germicidal UV Light Installation in Eastern Pennsylvania

UV Lights are an excellent investment for raising indoor air quality, featuring benefits such as: 


Eliminate unpleasant odors

Installing UV lamps into your HVAC system can reduce the presence of potent odors from mold, mildew, bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms flourishing in the air ducts. Utilizing germicidal ultraviolet rays renders them harmless, but you will sometimes benefit from duct cleaning if there is existing growth.

Decreased danger of getting sick

Ultraviolet lights decrease the distribution of airborne illnesses by killing off virus and other germ particles before they can affect you. These microorganisms are often too little for conventional air filters to capture, but products like humidifiers can counter the warm, humid conditions suitable for microbes.



Avoid aggravating respiratory symptoms

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

Promote better energy efficiency

Fewer pollutants in your air can also enhance energy efficiency, as they aren’t clogging up the air filter or crucial components.
