Whether you have concerns about bacteria and germs or dust mites and mold, germicidal lights can be installed to protect your family from these harmful substances.

UV light sterilization systems can be added onto your HVAC air filtration system to reduce the harmful pathogens and organisms in your indoor air climate. They are very effective at controlling mold and bacteria inside your HVAC system. There are different types of UV light sterilization systems that can be added to your heating and air conditioning units.

Unfortunately, harmful volatile organic compounds are easily introduced into our bodies almost every day. These chemical emissions can accumulate within the indoor air environment at levels that are harmful. In fact, the EPA has found that VOC levels indoors can be as much as 2000 times higher than levels outdoors. You can absorb them through your skin, through inhalation, and ingestion. Most of the time, we absorb VOCs through the air we breathe.

By installing germicidal lights in your Shelby County home, you can rest easy knowing that the air you breathe every day has been truly purified against this pollution.

Coil Germicidal Lights

Basically, there are two different types of UV lights manufactured for your HVAC system. One type of UV sterilization system is the Coil Sterilization.

Your HVAC system produces condensation. When there is a problem with moisture buildup or a clogged condensation line, the wet environment will be the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew within the HVAC system. It is not uncommon to see wet and moldy insulation and wood in the air handler area.

Coil Sterilization UV lights are shaped in the form of a stick light. This germicidal light is installed inside the return air duct in order to sterilize the air handler area and coil. This light is on constantly and never turns off. The coil sterilization method of UV light sterilization is the most common type of system. This type of germicidal light offers point-of-install light sterilization that only removes organic contaminants in the area of your HVAC unit to keep it free of bacteria and other toxic producing organisms such as mold.

Another type of UV light intended for HVAC use is the Air Sterilization system. As a whole home unit, this system is intended to clean and sterilize all the air that flows through your home via the air ducts of your air conditioning and heating forced air system. This type of UV germicidal light system is a complete unit that sterilizes all the moving air within your Shelby County home. The UV light unit will cycle with your HVAC unit as it turns on and off with the air handler blower.
