Fight Allergies in Orlando with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was first used to cure 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 healthier.
A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and enhance the air quality in your Orlando home. It can wipe out mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.
This can bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid locations where mold and bacteria prosper. These lights may even help your HVAC system run longer, since they keep pieces clean.

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are installed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and operate continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as fast 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 amounts 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 some preventive measures.
The sun lets off ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can detect. It’s at fault for causing painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can result in 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 manage installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or permit bare skin to come into contact with it.
