Indoor air quality is extremely important to me. I’ve been struggling with severe allergy issues since I was a kid. It seems as if every season and climate change presents new challenges. The pollen, dust, and exhaust fumes outside are not something I can control. Inside my home, however, I have taken every precaution to create a healthy, clean environment. I make sure to have my furnace and air conditioner professionally cleaned and serviced every six months. The HVAC contractor accesses the inner workings to remove any buildup of contaminants. He’s actually shown me the accumulation of dust and mold growth, which could potentially enter my breathing air every time the furnace or air conditioner starts up. After a bit of research, I decided to take a more proactive approach.
I invested in an indoor air quality accessory called a germicidal UV lamp. I actually have several UV lights which incorporated into the inner workings of the HVAC system. The UV lamps are entirely silent, require hardly any maintenance, and yet effectively target contaminants before the enter the home. The UV lamps concentrate on purifying the inner workings of the system, preventing the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria. The light is very natural and similar to the sun’s rays, which effectively kills microorganisms. This technology is widely used in doctor’s offices, hospitals, and especially in operating suites. The UV lamps operating round-the-clock, all year long, and create a much more sanitary breathing environment. Not only is my home much more pleasant for me, but this technology protects the efficiency and reliability of my HVAC system. I pay less in monthly in energy bills, face fewer malfunctions, and the equipment should last longer.
