When most people think about UV light, the first thing that comes to mind is usually the harmful effects of the sun’s rays and the importance of protecting your skin. However, UV lights have many benefits when it comes to air conditioning and have become vital for improving indoor air quality, especially in humid regions like central Florida.
5 Benefits of UV Lights for HVAC Systems
UV lights provide the following benefits for air conditioning systems:
1. Reduces Sickness
HVAC ultraviolet light acts as a cleaning agent for bad microorganisms. The light disrupts the formation of germs and as a result, prevents their ability to multiply. UV light also eliminates allergens the same way it does germs. The buildup of dust, mold, and mildew can be controlled with UV light to reduce sneezing and other allergy-related symptoms.
2. Improves Air Flow and Efficiency
Overtime, it’s common that your HVAC system will start to collect dirt, germs, and other pollutants that prevent efficient output. UV light will organically clean AC coils and result in smoother airflow.
3. Decreases Energy Costs
Whenever you have something blocking airflow, the system has to work harder to achieve better output. By adding a UV lighting device to your HVAC system, not only does it provide cleaner air but is also energy efficient and will lower power bills.
4. Eliminates Odors
Air pollutants roaming around our home not only make us pinch our nose at the smell, but can also be very hazardous. Volatile Organic Compounds are a main source of the smell and cause chemicals to infiltrate the air. A major benefit of UV light is the elimination of VOC’s from the ventilation system and improving your breathing space.
5. Reduces Clogging in the Condensate Drain Line
Air conditioning systems produce moisture from within. Over time, this moisture can build up and clog the condensate drain line, causing a variety of issues. UV light reduces this moisture and can keep this drain line from clogging.
