A residential whole-house Ultraviolet air purifier works when ultraviolet light zaps airborne bacteria with an electrical charge. Hospitals use UV air filters in tuberculosis wards to make sure there are no smaller particles cycling through their air. Your first line of defense for clean air in your home is the basic air filter built into your air conditioning and heating unit. Some benefits of having UV air purifiers in your house are:
- Improve indoor air quality
- Reduce pet dander
- Reduce dust mites
- Reduce mold
- Reduce smoke particles
- Better energy efficiency
- Traps minute particles
- Helps reduce impact of city smog
How Does UV Light Purify Air in A Home?
Using UV-C light that destroys the nucleic acids of cells and disrupts their DNA which either kills or leaves them incapacitated, contaminated air that passes through UV-C light is purified of most harmful contaminants. This process happens when the air passes through a chamber and is exposed to UV light. The air inside your home circulates through your return ducts (sometimes called cold air returns) into your heating and cooling system and then back into the rooms of your home to eliminate airborne viruses. This creates a physical barrier inside your AC system that traps small and large particles that are present in the air inside your home. Unlike media filters, electronic filters never need replacing, but should be cleaned in soapy water every few months.
