In your battle to improve your home’s indoor air quality, you need to control three different types of pollutants: The first type is particulate matter, which is inorganic matter, such as dust and pollen, that can irritate your respiratory system. You also need to monitor levels of toxic gases–the second type of indoor air pollutant–including radon and carbon monoxide, to ensure that you’re not breathing in harmful vapors that can cause serious health problems. Finally, you need to keep organic pollutants under control. These pollutants include mold, mildew, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria and viruses. Thankfully, UV lights offer an extremely effective means of combating the pollutants in this last category.
UV lights are deadly to these contaminants because light in the ultraviolet spectrum disrupts their DNA, rendering them unable to continue to produce the crucial proteins that keep their bodies strong. This causes them to die shortly after exposure to UV lights. When used in your home, UV lights eliminate the overwhelming majority of organic contaminants that are exposed to them. UV light system installation can be customized according to your budget and your unique needs.
At Stack Heating, Cooling, Plumbing and Electric, we want to be sure that you are providing your family with the safest possible indoor environment, and that your indoor air is as clean as it can possibly be. Thus, we want to remind you that UV lights are only able to kill organic compounds, and do nothing to fight particulate matter, toxic vapors, odors or secondhand smoke.
Installing quality germicidal UV lights into your home’s HVAC system usually takes a relatively short period of time, and costs are very affordable. If you want to provide your family with the best protection against organic airborne impurities, UV lights are the way to go. To get a price quote, or to arrange a consultation, please contact us. Remember that not all homes need germicidal UV lights, and you can trust our impeccable service record to ensure that we’ll make the proper recommendation for your home and your family’s needs.
