Fight Allergies in Naples with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was originally used to heal tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sanitize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Naples home’s environment purer.

A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Naples home. It can eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.

This can lead to relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid areas where mold and bacteria prosper. These lights may even help your HVAC equipment last longer, since they keep components clean.

Our Experts can suggest the system that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are placed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to destroy the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as quickly as 10 seconds, this powerful light stops contaminants from spreading throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how effective UV light is in battling germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to wipe out 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold concentration in a commercial office building’s HVAC unit.

A germicidal system can also neutralize smells and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not practical against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you follow some preventive measures.

The sun emits ultraviolet light, which has a smaller wavelength than visible light. It’s responsible for causing painful sunburns. Ongoing overexposure can result in wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more concentrated, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning manage installation and maintenance. You should never look straight into the light or let bare skin touch it.
