UV Lights in Ductwork
Posted on March 2, 2023 by Angel Clean
Have you noticed being sick a lot more lately? How about too much dust in your home? It may be time for a HVAC tune up, and UV lights for your HVAC system could be your answer. UV lights have astonishing benefits from minimizing sickness, lessening dust levels, and even helping your wallet.
UV lighting is a misunderstood technology that homeowners rarely know is an option. It works to prevent microbial buildup on air filters, cooling coils, drain pans, and duct surfaces in order to keep your entire HVAC system working like new.
UV lighting reduces contaminants that could build up in your system’s ductwork. These contaminants cause your HVAC system to work harder, potentially wearing out your system prematurely and costing you more in AC repair cost and AC replacement. By eliminating contaminants, biofilm growth, and other organic materials inside your HVAC system, heat exchange and airflow are both dramatically improved making you less likely to call your local HVAC contractors with problems like, “my air conditioner is not working”, or “I’m in need of heating and cooling repair”.
Improved Energy Efficiency
It’s possible to decrease the entire energy usage of your home by 35%, just by integrating a UV device with the current HVAC system already in place. Over time this can be a huge saving on your electric bill! UV lighting restores the HVAC system’s performance to optimal levels, reducing its power consumption and helping it work like a new system. HVAC systems accumulate the majority of a home’s electric/energy bill. As a HVAC ages, the more contaminants are built up, and can potentially put strain on your system.
Depending on your family’s needs, the pollution reduction from installing UV lights in your HVAC can be phenomenal. HVAC’s are made to effectively and efficiently move air that is generally either heated or cooled throughout your entire house. This is great for regulating temperature, but one potential problem is if any airborne bacteria or viruses are present they will also be circulated through the house along with the air. The solution to this problem is to place a strong UV light with germicidal properties into the ductwork. As air passes through the light the UV rays will damage the DNA of any existing airborne contaminants eliminating their ability to function normally and ultimately destroying them. Air filters can trap pollutants, but only air purification systems can destroy them. Here at Angle Clean, we install UV lights in the HVAC unit ductwork where the return air comes in. This way, when the air is recycled through the system, it flows over the UV light before being distributed throughout the house again. These UV lights can be combined with Hepa Filter Systems purifying the air that much more in your home!
