Heating and cooling systems work by controlling temperatures and humidity levels and circulating air. However, if the air that’s circulating is carrying contaminants, it can negatively affect the indoor air quality of your home. That’s why it’s important to make sure you have the right air cleaning devices installed.
Think about it.
The water you drink passes through a filtration process to remove parasites, bacteria, viruses, and chemicals.
The food you eat is treated and inspected before consumption.
What about the air you breathe?
Did you know that according to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), the air inside your home is 100 times more polluted than the outdoor environment?
Wouldn’t you sleep better at night knowing the air circulating your home is clean, sanitized, and safe to breathe?
The pandemic has shown the massive impact pathogens can have on our health. Finding ways to reduce the spread of these disease-causing bacteria has become a priority at Eco Grizzly. To do this, we are dedicated to making your home a safe and pathogen-free space.
How Can I Control The Air Quality in My Home?
Here are 3 ways to maintain a healthy and clean indoor air environment:
1. Change your filters
Regularly changing air conditioning filters can help ensure that dust and other airborne irritants get trapped instead of being recirculated throughout your home.
Having your ducts cleaned to remove trapped dust gives your system a thorough cleaning, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grilles and diffusers, heat exchangers heating and cooling coils, condensate drain pans (drip pans), fan motor, and fan housing, and the air handling unit housing.
3. Install a UV Light system
Some more volatile compounds need more than just a high-quality filter or an efficient air duct cleaning to be removed from the air, and here is where we can help you. Keep reading to learn more about UV light systems.
What is UV Light Technology?
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation is an established means of disinfection and can be used to prevent the spread of certain infectious diseases. Research demonstrates that UV light can effectively inactivate many common pathogens.
The disinfecting powers of UV light are lethal to bacteria and viruses because of its high frequency that breaks down and damages their DNA material preventing them from spreading.
According to the FDA, a strong UV light source could help reduce harmful germs and bacteria on surfaces.
This specialized UV light is commonly found in hospital operating rooms and sterile clean rooms for disinfection purposes. And now, we are bringing this technology to your home.
When you install a UV light system within the system that circulates the air in your home, working for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you get full cleaning coverage. Thanks to this innovative technology, you have more control over the air you breathe than ever before.
Where is UV Light Installed?
The UV Light Cleanser is installed inside the air ducts of your HVAC system, a known place for bacteria overgrowth, to safely provide ongoing radiation targeting volatile organic compounds and bioaerosols that makeup 65% of the air inside your home, offering safe, unobtrusive in-room air purification for cleaner air.
The remaining particulates in the air can be safely captured with high-efficiency air filters.
Air ducts are dark, damped sections of your HVAC system, in other words: bacteria heaven. They can contain mold, fungi, bacteria, and allergens.
UV lights are a chemical-free way to kill and sterilize mold, bacteria, and other organic growth as they pass through the HVAC unit.
Using ultraviolet lamps in your HVAC system can kill viruses, bacteria, and even mold while getting rid of microbes as they pass through the system. This is very beneficial to the more than 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies each year. Not to mention the 17 million adults and 7 million children who are affected by asthma.
Improved indoor air quality can benefit your life by:
- Reducing mold and bacteria overgrowth
- Limiting infectious diseases
- Eliminating smells and odors
- Improving allergy and asthma symptoms
In combination with the frequent change of high-quality filters, this technology will provide you with a 100% clean air solution.
UV lights are not one-size-fits-all. You need to consider the location and size of the HVAC system and the number of UV lights you’ll need.
