UV lights are a type of light that is invisible to the human eye. These lights emit ultraviolet radiation, which is harmful to many types of viruses and also bacteria. UV lights are commonly used in hospitals and other medical settings to sterilize equipment and surfaces. Germicidal UV lights are a type of UV light that is specifically designed to kill 99% of viruses and most bacteria. UVC lights are a type of germicidal UV light that is often used in HVAC systems.

If you suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues, then you know how important it is to have clean air in your home. But did you know that the air in your home can be full of viruses, bacteria, and other pollutants? These contaminants can come from many sources, such as pets, cooking, and even your HVAC system. Thankfully, there are ways to improve the air quality in your home. One way is by using UV lights in your HVAC system.

In an HVAC system, UV lights are typically installed in the ductwork or in the air handler unit. The ultraviolet radiation from these lights kills or damages the DNA of bacteria and viruses, rendering them unable to reproduce. This helps to reduce the amount of these contaminants in the air, which can improve indoor air quality.

As you can see, UV lights play an important role in many HVAC systems. If you are looking for a way to improve the air quality in your home or business, then consider having UV lights installed in your HVAC system.
