UV waves are invisible to us, yet lethal to microorganisms found in indoor air. The UV light penetrates the contaminants and breaks down the molecular bonds. The germs are either killed or sterilized.
What microorganisms can a UV light installed in my home get rid of? A UV light will have a 99% kill rate for bacteria that cause diseases such as:
- E. coli
- Legionnaires Disease
Over the past few decades, indoor air quality has declined dramatically, inundating us with bacteria, viruses, toxins, and molds, in the place we should feel safest-our homes. Filtering systems are not a viable solution, as they simply recirculate the same infected air. UV radiation replicates the effectiveness of the sun’s rays in your home in a safe, cost-effective manner.
UV light treatment can be maximized with the addition of a whole house humifier, air cleaner, and indoor air quality thermostat.
