Sterilize Microorganisms with a Germicidal UV Lamp

While indoor air quality equipment like air filtration systems are ideal for inorganic particles such as dust and soot, they can have a harder time with microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria. They’re often small enough to slip through high-efficiency filters before reaching the rest of your HVAC equipment. When trapping contaminants isn’t as effective, alternative strategies should be considered to maintain a complete indoor air quality strategy.

You might be happy to find out that ultraviolet light has sanitation qualities. After being exposed to UV light, germs are sterilized, becoming inactive or incapable of reproducing. Essentially, this lowers the chance they’ll adversely 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 take care of the installation process, making sure you receive the full benefits of a UV germicidal lamp.

How Will a UV Germicidal Light Sterilize Microbes?

Ultraviolet light is the reason you get sunburned after spending too much time outside. The short wavelength that keeps UV light invisible to our eyes also enhances its energy. This energy is sufficient to damage the molecular bonds of genetic material, particularly that of microorganisms including mildew and bacteria. The results could completely kill microbes or simply keep them from replicating, but the benefits are mostly similar.

It’s smart to install UV lamps straight into your HVAC system. As air flows through during a heating or cooling cycle, airborne microbes come in contact with the UV light while they move past. You can preserve comfortable temperatures while also enhancing air quality. And given that the germicidal lamp is confined to the ventilation, you never have to worry about being affected by the UV rays.

A UV lamp mounted within the ductwork is considered an air sanitizing light, and is ideal for microbes already airborne. Your air sanitizing light is frequently integrated with the HVAC system’s blower motor, where the UV lamp only comes on during an active heating or cooling cycle.

There are also lights designed for specific HVAC components like an air conditioner’s condenser coils. Some new coil sanitizing lights will prevent mold and mildew from benefiting from the coils’ condensation.

Reasons to Schedule Germicidal UV Light Installation in NE Ohio

UV Lights can be an excellent investment for improving indoor air quality, featuring benefits such as: 


Prevent 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 might benefit from duct cleaning if there is existing growth.

Decreased danger of getting sick

Ultraviolet lights decrease the propagation of airborne illnesses by killing off virus and bacteria particles before they can get you sick. These microorganisms are often too minuscule for conventional air filters to capture, but equipment like humidifiers can prevent the warm, humid conditions perfect for microbes.



Avoid irritating respiratory symptoms

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are one of the most common sources of allergy and asthma symptoms. Thankfully, UV lamps installed into your HVAC system can limit organic pollutants such as formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia before they pass through the ductwork.

Promote higher energy efficiency

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