Sterilize Microorganisms with a Germicidal UV Lamp

While indoor air quality products like air filtration systems are perfect for inorganic particles like dust and soot, they can have a harder time with microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria. They’re often tiny enough to slide through high-efficiency filters before reaching the rest of your heating and cooling. When catching contaminants isn’t as successful, alternative strategies should be considered to ensure a complete indoor air quality strategy.

You may be happy to hear that ultraviolet light has sanitation properties. After being exposed to UV light, microorganisms are sterilized, becoming inactive or unable to reproduce. Essentially, this minimizes the likelihood they’ll negatively impact your HVAC system or health. Since you deserve clean and healthy indoor air, South Jersey Energy Services Plus sells and services germicidal UV lights in South Jersey. We’ll handle the installation process, ensuring you receive the full benefits of a UV germicidal lamp.

How Does a UV Germicidal Light Sterilize Microbes?

Ultraviolet light is the reason you get sunburned after spending too much time outside. The short wavelength that keeps UV light undetectable to our eyes also increases its energy. This energy can break down the molecular bonds of genetic material, including that of microorganisms such as mildew and bacteria. The changes can outright destroy microbes or simply prevent them from replicating, but the benefits are largely similar.

It’s a good idea to install UV lights right into your HVAC system. While air passes through during a heating or cooling cycle, airborne microbes are exposed to the UV light while they move past. You can preserve balanced temperatures while also increasing air quality. And since the germicidal lamp is limited to the ductwork, you won’t have to worry about being affected by the UV rays.

A UV lamp installed within the ductwork is known as an air sanitizing light, and is best suited for microbes currently airborne. Your air sanitizing light is frequently integrated with the HVAC system’s blower motor, where the light only comes on during an active heating or cooling cycle.

There are also lights suitable for specific HVAC components like the condenser coils on your air conditioner. Quality coil sanitizing lights can keep mold and mildew from benefiting from the coils’ moisture.

Reasons to Schedule Germicidal UV Light Installation in South Jersey

UV Lights are a brilliant investment for enhancing indoor air quality, providing benefits like: 


Prevent bad odors

Installing UV lamps into your HVAC system can lessen the presence of intense odors from mold, mildew, bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms growing in the air ducts. Employing germicidal ultraviolet light renders them harmless, but you might need duct cleaning if there is established growth.

Reduced risk of getting sick

Ultraviolet lights decrease the spread of airborne illnesses by killing off virus and other germ particles before they can affect you. These microorganisms are often too small for standard air filters to capture, but equipment like humidifiers can discourage the warm, humid conditions ideal for microbes.



Avoid irritating respiratory conditions

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are one of the most common contributors to allergy and asthma symptoms. Thankfully, UV lamps mounted into your HVAC system can decrease organic pollutants including formaldehyde, benzene and ammonia before they pass through the ductwork.

Stimulate higher energy efficiency

Fewer contaminants in your air can also enhance energy efficiency, as they aren’t clogging up the air filter or key components.
