Living in the Reno and Sacramento areas comes with a lot of perks. Beautiful communities, historical sites, mountains, deserts, lakes, and forests are all within a few hours’ drive.
Unfortunately, all of that beautiful nature comes with a price in the form of dust, pollen, bugs, bacteria, and many other biological contaminants making their way into your home through your air conditioner and air vents.
Fortunately, you can fight back without ever having to lift a finger. UV air purification is a technology subjecting all of the air entering your home to UV radiation that will kill organic matter at the cellular level. Since it is all done in your air ducts, your family and pets remain perfectly safe—which is more than can be said for the bugs and bacteria that are trying to make you sick.
UV air purifiers are mounted in your HVAC system in addition to the standard air filters that catch dust and dirt. They work by exposing the bugs, bacteria, spores, pollen, and other living organisms to intense levels of UV-C radiation. Since UV-C is rare (the atmosphere absorbs most of the UV-C from the sun), these organisms have no defense and the radiation breaks down their DNA and RNA, making it impossible for them to function.
By now you’re probably thinking, “If that’s what UV air purifiers do to bacteria, what will they do to me?” The answer is “nothing.” The UV air purifier system is mounted in your HVAC system or air ducts, so you will probably never even see it. It is also designed to shut off automatically when someone accesses the system, so your family is in no danger.
If your family includes infants, seniors, or people who are immune-compromised, you owe it to them and yourself to make your indoor air as clean as possible.
If you own a business, you know how quickly a cold or the flu can makes its way around the office. A phenomenon known as “sick building syndrome” can occur when a building’s air vents are full of bacteria, pests, spores, mold, or parasites that make people sick. When you have dozens or even hundreds of people breathing and sharing the same air, it’s no wonder they all get sick at the same time.
But you can fight back against biological invaders who are hurting your bottom line. A UV air purifier expertly installed by Tahoe Clean Air can remove the microscopic bacteria, viruses, spores, pollen, and mold living in your air ducts.
Conventional air filters can catch dust, dirt, and sand trying to make their way into your building, but these contaminants don’t do much. Biological contaminants, on the other hand, set up colonies and send out spores to find new hosts to infect. Even after they are caught in a traditional air filter, they can continue to proliferate and infect your employees and customers for years. That’s why it pays to be sure with a UV air purifier.
