Whole-Home, Virus-Killing, UV Air Purifier Benefits

Posted on December 9, 2020 by Bailey Horlander

Whole-home, virus-killing, UV air purifiers can help you with your indoor air quality. Indoor air quality is a real issue with what’s going on today. Homes and buildings are tighter. Chemicals (i.e., paints, household cleaners, etc.) are commonly used. And now covid-19 is a prominent issue. For these purposes, indoor air quality is a top priority for commercial properties. But with our low prices, now homeowners can have one installed reasonably priced in about an hour. Since we’re forced to social distance and wear masks to help protect ourselves and others, why not be proactive and improve your quality of life and health in your home.

To make your home a safer and cleaner place to live consider the installation of a whole-home, virus-killing, UV light. When this system is mounted into your furnace ductwork it will improve your entire home’s indoor air quality.

UV Lights and Indoor Air Quality

When we install a UV light inside of your home’s ducting system, we use the furnace’s blower to move air. The air being circulated by your furnace’s blower passes near or around the UV light cleaning the air by killing viruses, mold, mildew, and dust mites. It doesn’t take long to notice a significant improvement in your indoor air quality. When the light is placed above or below your air conditioner’s indoor coil inside your ductwork, it can eliminate odor too. Your indoor air conditioner’s coil is the perfect breeding ground for mold and bacteria, which can cause your entire home to smell like a locker room (dirty sock syndrome).

Differences In Air Purifiers

Heartland Quality Heating and Cooling installs two different whole-home, virus-killing, UV air purifiers. While both do a fine job killing airborne mold, dust mites, mildew and viruses there is a difference between the entry level unit and the premium unit. Our premium UV air cleaner also uses a titanium oxide grid that helps break down harmful airborne VOCs floating around your home. The premium UV light will naturally deodorize your home as well. Both units come with a lifetime warranty provided you have our trained professionals replace the light bulbs when needed. The average life of the bulb is 12-14 months.

While having a whole-home, virus-killing, UV air purifier might seem like a luxury, think of this. Hospitals have been using UV lights to reduce the transmission of airborne disease for the past 60 years. It would only make sense to have a whole-home, virus-killing, UV air purifier installed in your home. If you have any questions about UV lights or if you are interest in purchasing one give us a call
