Indoor Air QualityShould I Be Using a UV Air Purifier in My Home?

You have no doubt heard about some of the many different ways in which you can clean up the air in your home. One option that some homeowners are not very familiar with, though, is the UV air purifier. By using a UV air purifier in Everett, WA, you can overcome some Indoor Air Quality problems that would otherwise go unaddressed with the use of other air cleaners. Not every home is going to benefit from the use of a UV air purifier, of course, so it is always a good idea to consult with an IAQ professional before investing in any such equipment. 

When to Consider the Use of UV Germicidal Lights

For many homeowners, pollutant removal based air cleaners are going to be enough to clean up the air in their homes sufficiently. Devices such as designated air filtration systems and electronica air cleaners can help homeowners to remove the pollutants that are causing issues in their homes from the air. In some instances, though, destroying pollutants is really the only way to go.

Biological pollutants are what we’re really looking at here, and there are a couple of reasons as to why you cannot simply remove them from the air with filters or electronic air cleaners. First of all, many biological pollutants are so tiny that they’d pass right through such filtration/purification devices. Additionally, even if they are successfully trapped, these pollutants may continue to thrive. They are living entities capable of reproduction, after all.

Using UV germicidal lights to disrupt these pollutants on a biological level, rendering them incapable of reproducing and effectively killing them off, is a much better course of action. If you are concerned about mold, viruses, bacteria, pet dander, etc. in your home, contact a member of our staff. We’ll help to determine if UV air purifiers are right for you.
