What Is a UV Air Purifier and How Does It Work?

Indoor air quality is an important part of maintaining health and safety for your family. Many bacteria and viruses travel through the air when someone coughs, sneezes, or even speaks. These microbes can result in dangerous infections.

Other indoor pollutants can also travel through the air: For example, mold. Mold is a common fungus, but some forms can be extremely dangerous to people and pets. Mold may aggravate existing respiratory conditions or make it more likely you will develop one.

For viruses, bacteria, and mold alike, there’s a clear solution: The UV air purifier.

Ultraviolet Light Keeps Your Indoor Air Cleaner

Indoor air can become heavily polluted without you even noticing it. Thanks to enclosed spaces, it can actually be much more polluted than the air outside. Problems with your ducts, filters, and HVAC system can make the issue worse.

A UV air purifier helps to clear the air – literally.

Ultraviolet technology has long been used to disinfect water, surfaces, and the air. A UV air purifier packages this into a unit suitable for home use. Using safe short-wave ultraviolet light, the purifier effectively “deactivates” pathogens that pass through it.

UV air purifiers can be set up as a standalone unit or they can work within your residential heating and cooling system. As air circulates through the system, it is cleaned and re-cleaned. This ensures that a home’s air is purified on a regular basis even as air exchange occurs from outside or hazardous microbes enter the home on people and pets.

Syles Mechanical Offers the Best UV Air Purifiers for Your Home

A UV air purifier works seamlessly in the background to keep you and your family safe. There is no complicated maintenance involved. Keeping a UV air purifier working as intended is often as easy as occasionally changing or cleaning the filter. It also uses only a modest amount of electricity. Any difference in monthly bills after installing a UV air filter is usually negligible.

In exchange, you get an extra layer of protection against the transmission of airborne illness. That is more important than ever in this time of heightened awareness about how some viruses and bacteria can travel from person to person even if they show no obvious symptoms.
