Fight Allergies in Livermore with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was first used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Livermore home’s environment cleaner.

A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and boost the air quality in your Livermore home. It can eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.

This can lead to relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid areas where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC unit run longer, since they keep components clean.

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are placed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work constantly. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to eliminate the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as little as 10 seconds, this powerful light stops contaminants from growing throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how effective UV light is in combating germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to wipe out 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold concentration in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.

A germicidal system can also take care of scents and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not practical against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you follow a couple of preventive measures.

The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than visible light. It’s at fault for leading to painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can cause wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is stronger, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look right at the light or permit bare skin to come into contact with it.
