The air in our homes is reported to be nearly 5 times more polluted than outdoor air according to research by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To truly decrease the pollution in your home you must use an air cleaner with an air filter to help remove germs, allergens and particles. By making the air in your home cleaner, the health of you and your family will benefit. Ultra-violet (UV) lights are an ideal solution for your home.
There many different types of air products that clean and filter,such as HEPA filters,ozone production, IQAir and UV sterilizers, along with many more. If you want to remove germs and bacteria completely, you should consider implementing UV air sterilizers.
The UV purifier is designed with a specific type of technology that uses ultraviolet light to sterilize air by killing bacteria and mold. UV lights are not air-purifying filters. They can not collect hazardous particles from the air like HEPA or electronic systems can. UV light is best used with some other air filtration system to remove larger particles such as pollen, dust mites and other debris floating in the air.
UV lights use ultraviolet light to deactivate and destroy the microorganisms that are present in your home or office environment. They may be bacteria and viruses, which can be very dangerous for your family. Especially children, elderly or sick people can be infected easily by these germs. UV sterilizers work well to kill the germs and sterilize the air as it passes by the lights in your ducts. This technology is also effective in the treatment of mold and their toxins. The UV lights are also effective against the common cold and flu viruses.
The UV light works by altering the DNA of these microorganisms and ultimately kills them. This technology does not cause any damage to your or your child’s DNA. The technology mimics the sun’s natural light and it is completely safe for your home environment.
UV air purifiers are perfect to kill bacteria and viruses. However, they do not filter particles, so it’s best to UV air purifiers in combination with filters. Otherwise, dust and dirt particles in the atmosphere in your home will not be removed and can still float in the air. Many homes and offices use UV products combined with other filtering techniques, such as HEPA, to get the best results.
UV lights are very harmful to all types of airborne bacteria, viruses, mold, and other microorganisms in the air. That is why these UV air purifiers are popular in hospitals. They are also used in high-profile theaters and prestigious hotels. These purifiers utilize special lights that use advanced technology and they can be installed in air ducts where air-borne micro-organisms constantly thrive.
There are many varieties of UV products. Air Oasis has a wide selection of portable and compact UV air purifiers. These purifiers use special UV lights to facilitate its germ killing mechanism. This light activates a catalyst to oxidize hydroxyl radicals and superoxide ion release to hydrocarbons. They come in different shapes and sizes.
Protect your family from harmful airborne bacteria and allergens by installing a UV air purifier in your home. A UV system is probably the best investment of your life.
