Fight Allergies in Daytona Beach with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was originally used to heal tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to clean hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Daytona Beach home’s environment cleaner.

A UV lamp can decontaminate HVAC systems and boost the air quality in your Daytona Beach home. It can eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms within 10 seconds of contact.

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

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are placed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and run all the time. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

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

Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in fighting germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to eliminate 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 unit.

A germicidal system can also neutralize odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not useful against dust, which is best managed by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is harmless as long as you follow a couple of precautions.

The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can detect. It’s behind leading to painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can result in wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is stronger, so it’s important to let All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning manage installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or permit bare skin be exposed to it.
