Fight Allergies in Orlando with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was first used to treat tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Orlando home’s environment cleaner.

A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and boost the air quality in your Orlando home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.

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

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are installed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work 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 battling 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 levels in a commercial office building’s HVAC equipment.

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

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you take a couple of preventive measures.

The sun emits ultraviolet light, which has a smaller wavelength than light you can detect. It’s at fault for causing painful sunburns. Ongoing overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more powerful, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or let bare skin to come into contact with it.
