Indoor pollutant concentrations are between two and five times greater than outside, even around Duck, NC. Here are five reasons you should consider adding UV light purification to your HVAC system this year.
Firstly, one of the major contributors to indoor air pollution is the variety of chemicals found in most homes. This includes not only chemicals from cleaners and air fresheners but also hidden chemicals in everything from linens to paint. Ultraviolet purifiers help remove these dangerous chemicals from your air.
Allergens are a problem for nearly half of the U.S. population, and your air contains many triggers. These include pet dander, biological contaminants, pollen and more. Ultraviolet purifiers break down these allergens, preventing them from performing their cellular function.
Household odors range from annoying to hazardous and can be a real turn-off when you have visitors. These odors are oftentimes caused by microscopic cells that release gases as part of their normal function. Ultraviolet purifiers attack these cells at the level of their DNA, rendering them inert so they cannot produce odiferous gases.
Improved Airflow and Efficiency
Particles in the air eventually settle on components in your HVAC system like the evaporator coil and circulating fan. As this happens, airflow restrictions form, preventing your system from achieving maximum efficiency. Ultraviolet purifiers work in conjunction with filters to first render particles inert and then remove them from the air.
Less System Strain
Finally, the more efficient your system runs, the less operational strain it experiences. Focusing on improving your air quality helps extend the life of every component, reducing the number of AC repairs required.
