3 Benefits Of HVAC UV Lights

Reduces Allergies & Illnesses

It's impossible to completely eliminate dust and microbes from your home's air, but proper filtration can help reduce them. UV filtration can significantly reduce the number of microbes passing through your air and inhibit the growth of mildew, mold, and bacteria in the HVAC system, which is especially important in humid Florida climates. Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can also be reduced with UV lights. These compounds can be manmade or naturally occurring and can be harmful to your health. They can be introduced to your home from everyday items such as perfumes and air fresheners to cleaning chemicals and vehicle exhaust. Eliminating as many harmful particulates from the air as possible can help reduce allergic reactions and respiratory illnesses, helping you feel better in your home.

Improve Efficiency & Airflow

Cycling air throughout your home for hours a day, 365 days a year, can take its toll on your HVAC system. Over time, particles can build up in the ducts, pipes, lines, and the cooling coils, reducing airflow and hindering your HVAC system's ability to operate. With a UV light for HVAC installed, you can increase efficiency by as much as 35% and reduce the need for routine HVAC maintenance. The increased airflow also means you'll receive the cooling or heating faster.

Decrease Costs

As part of increasing the efficiency of your HVAC, you also decrease costs because the system will not have to run as long or work as hard to achieve the same results. Not only will this save you money every month on utility bills, but it will also save you long-term on potential AC repairs that may become necessary as parts wear down from excessive use.
