Keep Your Family Safe with a UV Air PurifierNovember 6th, 2020 | seoteam
The nip in the air signals the start of cold and flu season. Cold weather drives people indoors, where it’s easier to transmit an infection. That’s partially the reason for the recent explosion in the number of cases of COVID-19 across the U.S. To make your home safer from viruses and bacteria, get a UV air purifier installed by the expert team at Rocky Mountain Clean Air.
As much as we clean with soap and water and disinfectant, and as frequently as we wash our hands, it’s often not enough to avoid getting sick. One of the reasons is that some illnesses are airborne, so cleaning surfaces does nothing to prevent these germs from getting into our bodies. Cleaning does help cut down on the transmission of ordinary colds and flus however, so it is still good to do.
How Do UV Air Purifiers Work?
UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill pathogens such as viruses and bacteria. This method of killing microorganisms has been used for years to make water clean enough to drink. Today, many hospitals, nursing homes and other facilities are using ultraviolet light to sterilize PPE such as masks to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
Some homeowners invest in stand-alone UV air purifiers, but we believe the kind of UV air purifiers we install directly in your HVAC system do a better job of protecting you.
The air that comes into your home — whether as heat or air conditioning — must pass through your HVAC system, which blows it into every room of your home. At Rocky Mountain Clean Air, we provide air duct cleaning, A/C coil cleaning and blower motor cleaning to improve air quality in your home. And while it’s tremendously helpful, this type of cleaning doesn’t remove pathogens from the air. Only a UV air purifier can do that.
UV Air Purifiers Kill Microorganisms
When you have a UV air purifier, the air that your HVAC pulls from the outside must first go through the purifier to get into your home. It’s at this time that it kills any germs in the air.
Although we stress that UV air purifiers kill viruses and bacteria, they also kill other pathogens such as pollen and mold spores. Therefore, a UV air purifier can dramatically help allergy sufferers as well, from the first sign of spring right up until the first frost.
