Keeping a comfortable indoor environment in your home is vital to the happiness of you and your family. While that obviously means keeping it at ideal temperatures, it also means that the air quality is at a high level. When your indoor air is dirty and full of the contaminants, it can be damaging to your respiratory system and cause some other health issues. There are many ways that homeowners and businesses can help keep their air clean. Whether it’s constantly changing out the air filter or installing an air purifier, having indoor air quality solutions in place is beneficial for everyone’s health.
There are many different air purifiers on the market today. From small units that only cost about $50 to large options that cost upwards of $1000, these systems have unique technology used to treat the air indoors. Many of these air purifiers have many different features — some used to treat very large areas, and some that include the high-quality HEPA filter. HEPA filters are one of the leading options for trapping harmful air particles like pollen, dirt, pet dander, and other contaminants. However, there is an option that seems to be a little more effective at trapping harmful particles.
UV Air Purifiers
When it comes to destroying viruses and other damaging microorganisms in the air, a UV air purifier is the best option out there. These systems use ultraviolet light technology to prevent the reproduction of these harmful microorganisms in your home or office. These systems are great for places with mold, pets, a large number of people, and more!
How They Work
UV (ultraviolet) light technology is used in these systems to eliminate the contaminants in the air we breathe. Using UV light, these units attack the genetic material that control the reproduction of the harmful organisms in the air. Therefore, these disgusting microorganisms can’t reproduce, which helps prevent illness, disease, and other health complications. These UV air purifiers usually involve the use of a UV lamp that comes with a filter. This will aid in removing the particulate matter from the air, in addition to killing more germs and bacteria.
Some of these air purifiers come with incredible technology — one of which that is named AHPCO (advanced hydration photocatalytic oxidation) technology, was even designed by NASA! While UV purifiers excel at the removal of tons of damaging particles, they struggle at the removal of smoke and other pollutants. That being said, coupling UV air purifiers with other systems will create top-notch indoor air quality.
