Get a UV Air Purifier for Healthier AirNovember 10th, 2020 | seoteam
Cold and flu season starts when the weather turns cold and everyone heads indoors where it’s easier to transmit germs. Spending more time in close quarters partially accounts for the recent explosion of COVID-19 cases throughout the U.S. Protect your family by having Tahoe Clean Air install a UV air purifier.
As diligent as we are about wiping down surfaces with disinfectant and washing our hands, these methods do nothing in the face of airborne viruses. Cleaning, however, protects against some cold and flu viruses, as well as salmonella and hand, foot and mouth disease, so it’s definitely worthwhile.
How UV Air Purifiers Work
UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill viruses, bacteria and other pathogens. In fact, they have been used for many years to clean water to make it safe to drink. Today, hospitals and other institutions are using ultraviolet light to sterilize PPE in an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Although stand-alone UV air purifiers are available, we believe that the type of UV air purifier that we install in your HVAC system offers superior protection.
Your HVAC system draws air from the outside, warms or cools it, then blows this air throughout your home. One of the reasons Tahoe Clean Air provides air duct cleaning, A/C coil cleaning and blower motor cleaning is to prevent the air in your home from being filled with dust and debris every time your HVAC kicks on.
But as much as our experts brush and clean the components of your HVAC system, this does nothing to remove microscopic harmful pathogens from the air. Only a UV air purifier can do this.
UV Air Purifiers Kill Pathogens
With a UV air purifier installed in your HVAC system, the air comes in from the outside, but its only path into your home is through the purifier. It’s at this point that the ultraviolet light kills the viruses and bacteria, so they never get into your air, and they never get into your lungs.
A UV air purifier does more than this, though. It also kills pollen and mold spores. This can relieve symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, wheezing and more — not just in the spring and summer, but year-round.
