Sterilize Microorganisms with a Germicidal UV Lamp

While indoor air quality products like air filtration systems are perfect for inorganic particles including dust and soot, they can have a harder time with microbes such as viruses and bacteria. They’re frequently small enough to slide through high-efficiency filters before reaching the rest of your heating and cooling. When catching contaminants isn’t as effective, other strategies should be explored to maintain a complete indoor air quality strategy.

You may be surprised to find out that ultraviolet light has sanitation qualities. If in contact with UV light, germs are sterilized, becoming dormant or incapable of reproducing. In effect, this minimizes the likelihood they’ll adversely impact your HVAC system or health. Since you deserve clean and healthy indoor air, Crawford Services sells and services germicidal UV lights in Dallas & Fort Worth. We’ll handle the installation process, making sure you enjoy all of the benefits of a UV germicidal lamp.

How Can a UV Germicidal Light Sterilize Microbes?

Ultraviolet light is why you get sunburned after spending too much time outdoors. The shorter wavelength that keeps UV light undetectable to our eyes also enhances its energy. This energy is enough to disrupt the molecular bonds of genetic material, particularly that of microorganisms including mildew and bacteria. The results can outright destroy microbes or simply stop them from reproducing, but the results are generally similar.

It’s a good idea to install UV lights right into your HVAC system. As air circulates through during a heating or cooling cycle, airborne microbes come in contact with the UV light as they move past. You can maintain balanced temperatures while also increasing air quality. And since the germicidal lamp is restricted to your air ducts, you never need to worry about being affected by the UV rays.

A UV lamp mounted inside the ductwork is referred to as an air sanitizing light, and is best suited for microbes already airborne. Your air sanitizing light is frequently integrated with the HVAC system’s blower motor, where the light only lights up during an active heating or cooling cycle.

There are also lights made for specific HVAC components like an air conditioner’s condenser coils. Some new coil sanitizing lights should help prevent mold and mildew from utilizing the coils’ moisture.

Key Advantages of Germicidal UV Light Installation in Dallas & Fort Worth

UV Lights are a terrific investment for improving indoor air quality, providing benefits like: 


Get rid of unpleasant odors

Installing UV lamps into your HVAC system can help reduce the presence of intense odors from mold, mildew, bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms growing in the air ducts. Employing germicidal ultraviolet rays renders them harmless, but you might benefit from duct cleaning if there is existing growth.

Decreased chance of getting sick

Ultraviolet lights reduce the propagation of airborne illnesses by killing off virus and other germ particles before they can reach you. These microorganisms are often too minuscule for standard air filters to capture, but equipment like humidifiers can discourage the warm, humid conditions ideal for microbes.



Avoid aggravating respiratory conditions

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are one of the most common sources of allergy and asthma symptoms. Fortunately, UV lamps fitted into your HVAC system can decrease organic pollutants like formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia before they move through the ductwork.

Stimulate better energy efficiency

Fewer contaminants in the air can also bolster energy efficiency, as they can’t clog up the air filter or essential components.
