UV Air Purifier Services in Colorado Springs, CO by Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning

It’s unpleasant to think that mold and other fungus might start to grow inside the ductwork in your home. However, the dark and sometimes damp interior of ductwork makes for a fertile ground for mold and microbacteria to take hold and begin to spread. These biological growths pose a double problem for a home: they will start to ruin the ductwork, leading to gaps and holes that will damage the entire HVAC system’s efficiency; and they can lead to a severe drop in indoor air quality leading to an increase in health complications within a household. Mold and microorganism such as viruses and bacteria will trigger illnesses and are especially dangerous for people with asthma and allergies.

When signs of mold and other growths inside your ventilation system start to appear, you have an excellent recourse for eliminating them thoroughly and safely: UV air purifiers. Professional indoor air quality specialists can install ultraviolet germicidal lights that destroy bacteria effectively without affecting your air quality or posing health risks to anyone in the house. Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning handles UV air purifier installation that will remove these biological threats to your HVAC system and indoor air quality.

How UV Germicidal Lights Work

The basic principle behind mold and bacteria remediation is using ultraviolet radiation to destroy the cellular structure of contaminants. The original pioneer in this field, Nils Finsen, won a Nobel Prize in 1903 for his discovery that high–frequency ultraviolet light could be used to eliminate tuberculosis and other illness–causing microbacteria. The technology soon became common in the medical field, and it entered the HVAC world when hospitals started to install UV germicidal lights inside their ventilation systems to halt the spread of viruses through the air shafts.

When ultraviolet light in high concentrations strikes microorganisms or mold, it disrupts the cells, stripping away their nuclei. This kills them and also prevents the contamination from spreading. Inside the air ducts of a home, the UV air purifier targets all the air passing through a shaft, bathing it in enough radiation to destroy any dangerous bacteria or mold spores it might contain.

Because they do not introduce any chemicals into the air, UV lights will not negatively affect a home’s indoor air quality. UV air purifiers are a clean solution for eliminating the danger of biological infestations in ductwork. Although ultraviolet radiation can be harmful for any organic tissue, proper installation of UV germicidal lights inside ductwork will ensure that they pose no danger to anyone inside your home.
