How does Ultraviolet Light Clean My Home’s Air?

Oct. 06, 2016
We all want to breathe a little better, especially during the summer when the humidity can get to you. One small addition to your air conditioner can assist in healthier breathing and more energy savings, but it’s one you’ve never thought of—ultraviolet light (UV light).
 
Ultraviolet Light for Health? Really?
Yes, really—it’s not just for an indoor tan. One of the first documented uses of UV light and personal health was in 1903 when Niels Finson won the Nobel Prize in Medicine. He used UV light to treat tuberculosis. This then led to the adaptation of UV light use in hospitals to sterilize equipment and water. So it makes sense to incorporate it into our homes to help eliminate the amount of indoor air pollution.
 
How does UV light work?
Because air conditioning units are meant to cool your home, they are cold and damp due to the normal condensation that occurs. This makes it a perfect breeding ground for growing mold and mildew over years of use. Mold can grow on the coil, and when the air system starts to work the spores can then be spewed throughout your home, causing unhealthy and unpleasantly smelling air.
 
Rainaldi sells UV lights with bulbs that exert powerful ultraviolet energy, that when installed in your air conditioning unit, will kill off any mold in the line of sight of the bulb, thus keeping the coil mold free.
 
The UV lamp is designed to kill the mold by breaking down its DNA and kill it at its source. A study featured in Applied and Environmental Microbiology showed the levels of fungi found growing on insulation within air conditioning units in an office building were drastically reduced compared to units in the same building that did not have a UV light installed.
 
So how can you have this installed to help your family stay healthy? Contact the experts at Rainaldi, and we can install one of our lights to help clean your air conditioning system. Less mold on the coils means less work for your system, which equals energy savings for you. You will breathe in the benefits of the new light quickly—less than an hour after installation, the air pollution in your home is reduced by as much as 50 percent.
 
Most lights run at all times and are easily installed or replaced by a technician.
