When most people think about improving their indoor air quality, they usually think of HEPA filters. While these air filters are certainly the gold standard of quality air cleaning, other air purification technologies — such as UV light air purifiers — offer additional sterilization capabilities that eliminate harmful contaminants like mold and mildew.
But what exactly are UV air purifiers, and how do they work?
A UV air purifier is an indoor air quality system that harnesses the power of artificially created UVC light to target and eliminate harmful contaminants hiding in your air supply. This UVC light can destroy nucleic acids and disrupt cellular DNA, killing cells or leaving them incapacitated as a result.
The system draws in air, which is then passed through a HEPA filter. After filtration, the air is then sent to a small internal chamber where it is exposed to UVC light rays. Once purified by the light, the air will either be filtered once more or released into your air supply, depending on the type of model you have in place.
Because this type of light is so strong, it is safely contained within the air purification system. No light rays ever are released into your room, preventing you from direct skin or eye exposure.
UV air purification can eliminate many different types of airborne contaminants. While some systems are designed to combat multiple contaminants, others are specialized to target specific pollutants, such as dust, pollen, pet dander, or viruses. Since UVC light is effective at killing cells, this air purifier works best to filter out mold spores and mildew.
Along with eliminating harmful contaminants, UV air purifiers provide many additional benefits related to your indoor air quality and HVAC system performance, including:
As you can see, eliminating harmful pathogens from your home through UV air purification is an excellent way to protect your personal health and the health of your HVAC equipment.
