UV Air Purifiers Are a Terrific Choice for Winter Health!

Posted on: November 14, 2016

Winter in Durham can be a lovely season, especially if you don’t mind chilly weather. But it’s also a period when flu and cold germs run rampant, and people miss many days of work, quality time with their families, and the enjoyment of vacations because of illnesses.

There are steps you can take to reduce your chance of coming down with a winter-time sickness by improving your home’s air quality. Attack those harmful germs and viruses moving around your household air with a UV air purifier.

What’s a UV air purifier?

It’s a variation on the standard air purifier that specifically targets organic pollutants circulating through a residential HVAC system. Standard air purifiers can do some good against bacteria and mold spores, but not the way that a UV air purifier can.

What a UV air purifier does is send out concentrated waves of ultraviolet light from a bulb, encompassing an area inside the ductwork where all the air must pass. This UV radiation is lethal to microorganisms and mold spores, destroying them and preventing their spread. The UV lights are not dangerous for humans or pets, so you can clear away germs and viruses without harming the rest of the household, and without using any chemicals that may linger afterward.

Look for other air quality options as well

The UV air purifier isn’t your sole choice for improved indoor air quality this winter. Our technicians also install humidifiers, which increase the body’s natural defense against the spread of illness. We also work with filters and other types of purifiers. You can trust that we’ll find the ideal type of indoor air quality improvements that will help you relax and enjoy the healthiest winter season possible.

Contact our IAQ specialists today. They’ll tour you through the choices you have for air quality.
