3 Benefits of a UV Air Purifier

Investing in a UV air purifier could be one of the best decisions you make for your home. Air purifiers, in general, provide a way to remove particles from the air, helping your family to breathe easier. UV air purifiers are a bit more helpful in that they could eliminate a wider range of health concerns. Here are three reasons why you should focus on a UV model if you are looking for an air purifier in Glendale, CA.

#1: Odor Elimination

UV air purifiers can help to remove odors from the air. Other air purifiers typically struggle with this due to the limitations of how they work. UV purifiers eliminate odors by killing the germs that cause them. As the air, with the germs and odor within it, passes through the HVAC system, the purifier picks them up and eliminates the problem. 

#2: They Reduce the Spread of Illness

Another valuable way UV air purifiers work is by helping to stop bacteria, viruses, and mold spores from spreading through the home. That means if you have a loved one ill and secluded in a bedroom, their germs are not spreading through the home to everyone else. In a typical HVAC system, the bacteria and other germs would be pulled through the HVAC system and could travel to any other area in the home. The UV air purifier eliminates them before that can happen.

#3: They Are Highly Efficient

UV air purifiers work exceptionally well, but you do not typically hear them. They are hidden in the ductwork in the home. They work on an ongoing basis, constantly pulling material out of the air to eliminate it. There are highly efficient in terms of energy consumption. Also, there is no harm to humans or pets when these devices are present. You can’t see them, either. This makes them a sleek way to add value and health to your home without having to do anything but install them.

How Does This Happen?

The air purifier is specifically designed to capture air as it passes through the home’s HVAC system. The air goes through a filter. Particles are picked up here. Then, the air travels through a small internal chamber within the purifier. This exposes the air to UV-C light. This is not damaging or dangerous light to people (it’s not the same as the UV rays that come from the sun). 

Some models have the air go through another filter after being exposed to the UV-C light. In all situations, this healthier air is then pumped back out into your home. Any contaminants within it are removed. The UV light is able to kill the mold spores, bacteria, and viruses that are often found in a home’s air. It does that by disrupting the chemical bonds that are found in these contaminants’ DNA. The result is a higher level of healthy air for you and your family to breathe daily. That’s always a good thing.
