Good indoor air quality (IAQ) is essential for your family’s overall health and comfort, especially if anyone in the home suffers from allergies, asthma, or breathing problems. If you haven’t heard how Ultraviolet (UV) lighting systems can benefit the air quality in your home, you’ve come to the right place! Our IAQ experts at Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating share a few points on how a UV lighting system can help boost your home’s IAQ.
What Do UV Lighting Systems Do to Boost Your Home’s IAQ?
Nothing feels better than breathing fresh air from the outdoors. What if you had that feeling when you walked through your home? The inside of homes can tend to get stuffy, especially if you have low IAQ. UV lighting systems can help with that. These lighting systems release low levels of ultraviolet radiation to control or kill the hosts of viruses, bacteria, germs, mold, and more.
How Do You Install and Maintain UV Lighting Systems?
The most important factor when installing a UV lighting system is the location of the equipment. Our experts at Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating typically suggest placing the UV lighting system near the evaporator coil due to the amount of moisture produced in the area. Because of the darkness of the space and the amount of condensation produced by the evaporator coil, unwanted pathogens such as mold and bacteria tend to grow quickly.
To guarantee the UV lighting system is purifying the air in your home in the most efficient way, place one bulb within the A-frame type evaporator and two bulbs around the evaporator’s outer tubing. Doing this will allow the UV lights to purify the air as it flows through the evaporator’s tubing. Additionally, maintaining UV lighting systems are straightforward by changing the bulbs every couple of years. We can always assist if you need help changing UV light bulbs, especially during yearly maintenance service calls.
