UV Germicidal Lights
UV germicidal lights work to eliminate many types of harmful bacteria and viruses. While HVAC UV lights work to prevent mold and microbial growth on coils, UV germicidal lights can be used in other areas as part of a total indoor air quality solution.
Some of the top benefits of UV Germicidal lights are:
- Healthier employees
- Reduced allergy complaints
- More concentration
- Less respiratory irritation
- Cleaner air for compromised employees
The fact that UV germicidal lights can kill viruses have made them very popular in the current environment. Many companies are requesting UV germicidal lights as either part of an HVAC UV lights system or as a separate unit to sterilize air for an extra defense in keeping a sanitized and healthy workplace. Also called an in-duct UVC system, these UV germicidal lights disinfect air during the normal air cycle. They are usually placed in an area that the light is maximized in multiple directions.
Always keep in mind that a filter does not catch the smallest viruses and microbes. To keep top indoor air quality, your building needs a solution that treats the air in your system as it is being cycled throughout your building.
