If you haven’t heard yet, UV (ultraviolet) lights can improve your indoor air quality and help you get the most from your HVAC systems. They help eliminate mould and airborne organisms that grow inside your heating and cooling systems. Installing UV lights inside your unit has been proven to limit this growth, enhance your indoor air quality, and positively impact your family’s health. If you’re interested to know what HVAC UV lights can do for you and your family, check out this list of benefits.

Why You Need HVAC UV Lights

There are so many benefits HVAC UV lights can offer you.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

HVAC UV lights work by emitting ultraviolet light that helps kill mould, bacteria, and other pollutants that build up in your HVAC system. This ultimately improves your indoor air quality by removing these potentially harmful particles from the air that circulates throughout your home.

Reduced Allergens 

Your HVAC system also spreads around allergens like dust mites, pet dander, and pollen. This can cause a range of respiratory problems for people with allergies or asthma. With the right placement and strength, UV lights can destroy the majority of these particles and microorganisms as they pass through your HVAC unit. You’ll notice that they make it easier to breathe for people with allergies or asthma, and you might even notice a reduction in illnesses.

Extended Lifespan of HVAC System

Your heating and cooling system itself also benefits from UV lights, as they get rid of a lot of the dirt and debris that would normally accumulate inside it. The buildup of these microorganisms actually damages your unit over time and reduces its effectiveness. So, by killing off many of the bacteria and microorganisms, these lights prevent this damaging accumulation and ensure your system lasts longer and performs better.

Cost Savings

Another way UV lights can benefit you is by saving you money. As mentioned, all the harmful particles and debris that build up in your heating and cooling system can damage your HVAC systems and necessitate more repairs and maintenance. Since ultraviolet lights prevent this buildup, there’s less wear and tear and damage to your system. This means you can significantly save on repairs, making the lights a worthy investment.

Increased Energy Efficiency

Finally, ultraviolet lights help your system run more efficiently. When you use HVAC UV lights, your HVAC system is less likely to become clogged. A clogged unit forces the unit to have to work harder. Keeping your HVAC unit clean with these lights allows it to operate more efficiently and effectively. This can also result in lower energy bills and better home comfort overall.
