Enjoy Cleaner Indoor Air with a UV Air Purifier
If you – like so many other Americans – suffer from the symptoms of allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments, the culprit could be all around you. It’s called polluted indoor air.
The EPA estimates that indoor air is twice as polluted as outdoor air, and the better insulated your home, the worse the problem.
What’s a careful home owner to do? Well, there are numerous DIY steps you can take to improve indoor air quality. Or, you can seek out an indoor air quality specialist that recommend and install a whole-house solution. Our focus today is on Ultra-Violet (UV) air purifying lamps.
Unlike whole-house air purifiers which kill indoor air pollutants as they attempt to pass through the system’s filter, a UV air purifier is more proactive. The lamps – installed inside your air ducts – seek out airborne viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi and break down their DNA. That renders them harmless which provides major relief from the symptoms that might be plaguing you now.
Still, it’s important to realize that UV air purifiers are not a cure for allergies, asthma, etc. But they do eliminate the very pollutants that have either caused or continually aggravate the problem.
UV air purifiers also are effective at eliminating:
- Musty odors
- Pet odors
- Smoke by-products
- Pollen spores
- Byproducts from new carpets and resurfaced hardwood floors
- Cleaning product fumes
What’s more, UV air purifiers offer superior energy efficiency over traditional whole-house air filters as the latter require a constant flow of air to filter out impurities. UV air filters also don’t require any actual filters, which means there’s no dirty particle build-up that can come back to haunt you.
