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.

UV Light - A Well Established Disinfection Technology

Germicidal Ultraviolet C-Band (UV-C) light disinfection is now widely used in Commercial Building both Public and Private such as, Hospitals, Surgery Centers, Nursing Homes, Schools, Courthouses, and Athletic Facilities. Germicidal Ultraviolet C-Band (UV-C) lights are used to disinfect surfaces, water sanitization, and to sterilize medical instruments. Germicidal Ultraviolet C-Band (UV-C) lights are extremely effective in reducing the spread of potentially lethal infectious diseases.

A Cleaner Air Handler

Installation of a Germicidal Ultraviolet C-Band (UV-C) light inside the air handler inhibits the growth of Viruses, Bacteria, and mold, thus creating a clean environment for air transfer. This will increase your Indoor Air Quality, save energy by allowing the system to operate more efficiently. A cleaner system also requires less maintenance. No more need to have your cooling coils cleaned as the Germicidal Ultraviolet C-Band (UV-C) light are cleaning the cooling coil 24 hours a day.

In scientific studies, UV light has been proven to kill 90% of microbial contaminants after 10 minutes of exposure and 99% after 1 hour.

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).
