UltraViolet (UV) Germicidal Lamps

​Don’t just remove harmful airborne contaminants, destroy them

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has ranked indoor air pollution as a high priority public health risk (U.S. EPA, 1990). Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) concluded that preventing exposure to environmental allergens and irritants may help prevent asthma and related breathing disorders (NHLBI, 1995).

Modern air sterilizers and whole-house duct cleaning can improve your health and safety by eliminating molds, bacteria and germs from source and recirculated air, keeping your entire home cleaner and healthier.

Mold and bacteria can easily grow on air conditioning coils as a result of normal condensation that takes place during the cooling process. A UV Germicidal Lamp is designed to kill that mold and bacteria by breaking down its DNA, using a technology that has been trusted for over 60 years to kill microorganisms in water purification, the food processing industries, hospital operating rooms and more. By adding a UV Lamp to your home comfort system, you reduce your family’s risk of allergic reactions and illnesses as well as eliminate the foul odors associated with such growth on the coil. Just think of the benefits of…

  • Health: According to the American College of Allergists, 50% of illnesses (such as colds and flu, allergies and asthma) are caused or aggravated by mold, mildew, bacteria and fungi.

  • Energy Savings: A Whole-Home UV Germicidal Lamp allows your home comfort system to run less often, for shorter periods of time and at peak efficiency. This saves you money on your utility bills.
