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

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work all the time. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as quickly as 10 seconds, this powerful light halts contaminants from spreading throughout your HVAC system and home.
Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in fighting 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 managed by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is harmless as long as you use some preventive measures.
The sun emits ultraviolet light, which has a smaller wavelength than light you can see. It’s responsible for causing painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can lead to 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 take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look straight into the light or permit bare skin touch it.
