Do you find yourself coughing when the air conditioner is turned on? Do allergies start acting up when you’ve got your HVAC system running? This could be because the quality of the air inside your home isn’t good enough.
Whole-home air purifiers, in combination with high-quality air filters, reduce the contaminants in your indoor air before the air reaches your rooms. UV purifiers kill viruses, bacteria, and other allergens. If you or someone in your home is allergy-sensitive, a UV purifier can make all the difference in breathing comfortably.
UV purifiers are installed by a HVAC specialist and require very little maintenance or upkeep after that. Cencal Mechanical has indoor air quality solutions for every budget.
The sun emits UV rays which are all around us here on Earth. UV-C rays are naturally filtered by our atmosphere. UV-A and UV-B rays are the rays that we need to protect our eyes from. Man made UV-C is completely safe when used properly.
UV-C is known as a disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces, which is why it’s so effective when integrated into your home’s HVAC systems. Precise levels of UV-C in air purifiers are strong enough to kill microorganisms, but these levels are not dangerous to humans. Purified air is cleaner and healthier than air that hasn’t been through a purification process.
Both components are essential to get the highest level of indoor air quality. Air filters and air purifiers act as a team. Air filters physically trap particles and remove them from the air passing through. Larger contaminants like pet dander and dust are removed with air filters.
UV purifiers use light to kill microorganisms and other contaminants too small to be trapped by a filter. Viruses and bacteria are eliminated during this process. Our IAQ specialists at Cencal can recommend the best combination of air filter and purifier to give you the cleanest air possible.
Ultraviolet (UV) light rays have the ability to kill microorganisms when applied at the right frequency and intensity. UV-C light is a special type of UV light that is harmless to humans but is able to destroy bacteria, mold, odors, and viruses.
As air passes through your HVAC system, it enters a chamber where your UV purifier concentrates light rays. This air is then passed through a filter and dispersed throughout your home for the cleanest, purest breathing experience.
