The significance of UV Lights in your home

Now I know I have touched on this subject in a previous blog, but I can't stress enough the significance of UV lights in your system for the cold and flu season.  Homes with children and/or senior citizens are especially at risk for illnesses during the colder months.  It's in your best interest to do what you can to tip the scales in your favor when combating germs and "bugs" while at home.

UV lights have actually been used to destroy airborne pathogens since the early 1900s.  Common uses were in food processing plants, butcher shops and slaughterhouses. It’s only been in the last ten years that UV systems have been developed to operate effectively in environments such as HVAC systems where cold moving air passes over the lamp.  Simply put, every HVAC system is a mold factory…with no exemptions.  This is caused by the condensation that occurs at the cooling coil. This dark damp environment is the perfect breeding ground for mold and other harmful microorganisms; they don’t stop reproducing until you do something about it!  Studies have shown a significant reduction in allergy symptoms, sinus problems, and related upper respiratory problems once a UV light has been installed in the household's hvac system.  So don't delay, get one of these lights installed today or you're sure to have a long stuffy winter season!
