Sterilize Microorganisms with a Germicidal UV Lamp

While indoor air quality products like air filtration systems are well suited for inorganic particles including dust and soot, they can struggle with microorganisms like viruses and bacteria. They’re commonly tiny enough to slide through high-efficiency filters before reaching the rest of your HVAC system. When capturing contaminants isn’t as successful, other strategies should be explored to ensure a complete indoor air quality plan.

You might be surprised to learn that ultraviolet light has sanitation properties. If exposed to UV light, microorganisms are sterilized, becoming inactive or incapable of reproducing. Essentially, this reduces the likelihood they’ll negatively impact your HVAC system or health. Since you deserve clean and healthy indoor air, Geisel Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing, Inc. sells and services germicidal UV lights in NE Ohio. We’ll complete the installation process, seeing to it that you receive all of the benefits of a UV germicidal lamp.

How Does a UV Germicidal Light Sterilize Microbes?

Ultraviolet light is why you get sunburnt after spending too much time outdoors. The short wavelength that keeps UV light hidden to our eyes also increases its energy. This energy is sufficient to damage the molecular bonds of genetic material, including that of microorganisms like mildew and bacteria. The results could outright destroy microbes or simply stop them from reproducing, but the benefits are generally similar.

It’s smart to install UV lights right into your HVAC system. As air circulates through during a heating or cooling cycle, airborne microbes come in contact with the UV light while they move past. You can ensure balanced temperatures while also improving air quality. And since the germicidal lamp is confined to the air ducts, you don’t have to worry about being affected by the UV rays.

A UV lamp placed in the ductwork is considered an air sanitizing light, and is best suited for microbes currently airborne. A new air sanitizing light is frequently integrated with the HVAC system’s blower motor, where the light only comes on during an active heating or cooling cycle.

There are also lights suitable for specific HVAC components like an air conditioner’s condenser coils. These coil sanitizing lights can stop mold and mildew from benefiting from the coils’ condensation.

Key Advantages of Germicidal UV Light Installation in NE Ohio

UV Lights could be an excellent investment for improving indoor air quality, featuring benefits like: 


Eliminate bad odors

Installing UV lamps into your HVAC system can lessen the presence of intense odors from mold, mildew, bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms growing in the air ducts. Applying germicidal ultraviolet rays renders them harmless, but you will sometimes need duct cleaning if there is existing growth.

Lower chance of getting sick

Ultraviolet lights reduce the spread of airborne illnesses by killing off virus and bacteria particles before they can affect you. These microorganisms are frequently too minuscule for standard air filters to capture, but products like humidifiers can discourage the warm, humid conditions perfect for microbes.



Avoid worsening respiratory complications

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are one of the most common contributors to allergy and asthma symptoms. Luckily, UV lamps mounted into your HVAC system can limit organic pollutants including formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia before they flow through the ductwork.

Promote higher energy efficiency

Fewer microbes in the air can also enhance energy efficiency, considering they can’t clog up the air filter or key components.
