The potential mold and bacteria growth on your air conditioning coils is a result of normal condensation that takes place during the cooling process. A UV Germicidal Lamp is designed to kill that mold and bacteria by breaking down its DNA. It uses a technology that has been trusted for over 60 years to kill microorganisms in water purification, the food processing industries, hospital operating rooms and more. The addition of a UV Lamp to your home comfort system can reduce your family’s risk of allergic reactions and illnesses as well as eliminate the foul odors associated with such growth on the coil.
Modern UV Germicidal lamps improve your health and safety by eliminating molds, bacteria and germs from source and recirculated air, keeping your entire home cleaner and healthier.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has cited indoor air pollution as one of the top five growing concerns in our country today. “As [we] spend most of [our] daily lives in homes, offices, schools, health care facilities or other buildings, the quality of the air [we] breathe indoors is critical for [our] health and well-being,” says Dr Srdan Matic, Unit Head, Noncommunicable Diseases and Environment at the WHO (World Health Organization, 2009).
