With a greater importance placed on indoor air quality, many homeowners are looking for ways to improve the quality of their indoor air. More emphasis is placed on filtration and consumers are often interested in new and unique ways to kill the various microorganisms, volatile organic compounds and other contaminants that may be carried throughout their home.
Ultraviolet light is used in many households to kill pathogens, microorganisms and volatile organic compounds, also known as VOCs for short. VOCs could be a health hazard and may produce unpleasant odors in our homes. Sources of VOCs may include building materials, smoking, air fresheners, cleaning chemicals, cosmetics, fuel, oil and/or gasoline, moth balls and your vehicle’s exhaust in the garage.
Ultraviolet (UV) filtration is designed to kill VOCs, pathogens and microorganisms that your current air filtration system may miss. The UV light may be installed in such a way to destroy mold and microorganisms that collect on the coil or other surfaces within your air conditioning system, while others may install UV lights to destroy these contaminants in the air before they can ever reach you or your family.

Call us for more information and to have a trained technician install a UV light in your system.
