Kill Germs With Light
For over a century, scientists have known that certain frequencies of light have a devastating effect on microbial life. We now know that exposure to ultraviolet light in the range of 254 NM (UV-C band) disrupts the DNA of micro-organisms, thus preventing them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.
Germs in the Air You Breathe
The indoor air you breathe has a lot of stuff in it that you do not want in your lungs, such as viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew, and other allergens. Everyone has different levels of susceptibility to these microorganisms. Some are annoying, others can make you sick. These microbes breed in the cool, dark, damp interior of your HVAC system, making it an ideal place for germs to multiply and spread throughout your building. These microbes can be airborne or living on surfaces of your facility. Therefore, Germicidal Ultraviolet C-Band (UV-C) Lighting Systems installed in rooms for surface disinfection and also in the HVAC units is so important to your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).
