UV Air Purifiers


Indoor air quality is an important issue that many people are just beginning to understand in regards to how it can eliminate germs, allergens, off-gassing, and odors.  It’s natural to assume that you’re entering a safe and clean space when you go into your home or office but, in reality, there is a good chance that your indoor air is more polluted than the air outside. Your heating and cooling system is often a major contributor to the issue, since it can continuously spread contaminants through your home or office. However, there is a solution: UV bulb air purifiers. An air purifier can be the answer for better health. Here is what you need to know.

How do UV air purifiers work?

UV bulb air purifiers can be placed directly inside your heating and cooling unit. There are two kinds of UV air purifiers that are used in most residential systems. Coil UV sterilization uses a stock light and is installed near the return air duct responsible for sterilizing the handler coil. The light is always on, so it is always sterilizing. However, the light cannot sterilize moving air. For that, you will need a UV air sterilization unit, which is installed in the return air duct. When your system cycles on, the UV system cycles on, as well, to sterilize the air that moves through the air ducts.

What are the benefits of using UV bulb air purifiers?

UV air purifiers can dramatically improve the air quality in your home and office. They reduce mold, bacteria, allergens, off-gassing, and bad odors. They will cut back on the cold and flu germs that are circulated through the home or office when someone is ill, and they can stop algae growth in condensation drain lines, which will prevent clogs. Additionally, they keep coils cleaner, so that your HVAC works efficiently and reduces the need for a coil cleaning.

How much do UV Air Purifiers Cost?

Total cost with installation runs between $975 and $1300.  This is a very affordable investment to rid your home of germs, allergens, particulates, off-gassing, and bad odors!
