With all the sources of outdoor pollution we face today, it’s nice to think that we can find a reprieve when we venture indoors. However, this is not the case. In fact, studies by the Environmental Protection Agency have found that indoor air pollution levels can be 100 times higher than outdoor pollution. The American College of Allergists report that 50% of sickness is caused by or agitated by poor indoor air quality.
Healing the Source: Your HVAC System
Thanks to Florida’s heat and humidity, air conditioning is a must to maintain any level of comfort during the state’s warmer months. With this oppressive heat and humidity comes the chance of mold and mildew forming within your air conditioning system. To help preserve your home’s indoor air quality and the lifespan of your air conditioner, consider installing internal UV lighting measures that combat the growth of foreign mold and mildew on your system’s coils.
Eliminate the Threat with Beneficial UV Lighting
Any home air conditioning system with coils will benefit from the installation of a UV lighting system. These benefits include but are not limited to:
- Kills mold, mildew and bacteria that take up residence on air conditioning coils
- Affordable and economical for the average homeowner
- Reduces HVAC system maintenance by preventing the growth of foreign materials
- Allows your air conditioner to run more efficiently thereby improving its lifespan and reducing overall operating costs
- Reduces and controls moldy, musty smells coming from your AC
How UV Lighting Works
Typically, UV lighting is installed near the cooling coils on an air conditioning system. As air moves over the coils in order to cool, the rays of UV light kill and control mold and bacteria that attempt to grow within your air conditioning unit. Biological pathogens exposed to the UV bulb are neutralized thereby keeping the rest of your air conditioning system free of hazardous biological growths.
