Nobody wants to think about germs, mold, or bacteria floating around their home’s indoor air supply. But the nasty stuff is there, and you want to tackle it before it takes down you or your family members. A UV germicidal lamp may be the solution for your indoor air quality problems, and Rainaldi Home Services can be your partner in keeping you and your family comfortable and healthy by adding this technology to your home.
Germicidal UV products destroy bacteria and viruses by changing their DNA and RNA, leaving them unable to reproduce. The technology works on almost all pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, mold spores, and fungus. When Rainaldi Home Services installs a UV germicidal lamp within your heating and cooling system, you can breathe easily, knowing the air coming through your ducts has already been exposed to the UV light. Read on to understand how a UV germicidal lamp will improve your home’s air quality and your family’s quality of life.
It reduces the spread of viruses
You can’t see them, but viruses may be lurking in your home’s air, ready to knock you out with a head cold or another ailment. If one person in the family is home sick, you have to worry about those germs floating about the house with every sneeze or cough. UV lamps destroy the virus’s ability to reproduce, cutting down transmission.
It improves your indoor air quality
Like mold and mildew, certain bacteria can carry odors and irritate your upper respiratory tract. When the UV lamp kills the mold and mildew spores, it also kills the odors. UV germicidal lamps also tackle volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, caused by certain paints, varnishes, or cleaning products.
It uses your existing ductwork
When you add a UV germicidal lamp to your HVAC unit, you’re sterilizing the air as it circulates throughout your home. We recommend a thorough duct cleaning before we install a UV light, which allows you to start and stay fresh.
Just as you don’t want to spend too much time exposed to UV light from the sun, you also want to be careful around a UV germicidal lamp. Only trained technicians should handle the units.
