Fight Allergies in Cocoa with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was first used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sanitize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Cocoa home’s environment purer.

A UV lamp can disinfect HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Cocoa home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens within 10 seconds of contact.

This can prompt relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid areas where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC unit work longer, since they keep components clean.

Our Experts can suggest the equipment that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are installed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work constantly. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to destroy the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as quickly as 10 seconds, this powerful light blocks contaminants from multiplying throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how practical UV light is in combating germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to eliminate 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold levels in a commercial office building’s HVAC equipment.

A germicidal system can also neutralize scents and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not practical against dust, which is best controlled by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you take a few preventive measures.

The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a lower wavelength than light you can detect. It’s behind creating painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is stronger, so it’s important to let Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning manage installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or allow bare skin touch it.
