Monroe’s UV Light Specialists
Since they limit the buildup of particles in both the ducts and the system, UV lights also promote good airflow and result in energy savings. They are great options for those who have installed effective air filters, air purifiers, and despite having regular HVAC maintenance performed, still find their indoor air quality needing improvement. Often, UV lights are the only difference between good indoor air quality and virtually perfect indoor air quality.

Top 4 Benefits of UV Lights
REDUCTION OF ILLNESSES AND ALLERGIES
Many types of illnesses can be spread through your HVAC system. However, the proper strength and placement of a UV light can eliminate and kill the majority of these microorganisms lurking deep inside the coils and air ducts of your heating and cooling system. You may notice not only a decrease in illnesses with these UV light but also mild allergy symptoms might improve.
ELIMINATE STRANGE ODORS
Sometimes, our HVAC systems transport certain odors of tobacco, burned food, mildew, and other contaminants all around the home. Many odors are merely annoying; others can be outright hazardous to your health. Fortunately, UV lights work to eliminate these airborne volatile organic compounds allowing you to breathe better air.
UV lights cut down on contaminants in ductwork that cause systems to have to work harder to produce airflow. When you install UV lights in your HVAC system, these lights clear the collection of this stuff and improve airflow. In addition to promoting airflow, maintenance expenses also go down.
ENHANCED SYSTEM EFFICIENCY
It’s common for the inside of an HVAC system to get clogged up with dirt, pollutants, and other debris that lessen a system’s ability to deliver air to the various rooms of a home, decreasing efficiency. Putting UV lights in your HVAC system can help keep your system clean and remove buildup in ductwork, pipes, and cooling coils. Cleaner systems have improved airflow, which increases system capacity by as much as 35 percent. This increase in efficiency means reduced energy costs and less maintenance necessary over the long term.
UV Lights vs. Microorganisms
In the wake of the Covid-19 Pandemic, UV Lights are growing in popularity in the HVAC industry. Ultraviolet light helps to kill a variety of harmful bacteria and mold, but most UV lights have no action on some other allergens or dust. UV systems should prevent the organic build up on the surfaces of your HVAC system’s coils, and in your ducts. An additional benefit of UV lights is that they improve airflow and the energy efficiency of your HVAC system, as well as reducing the need for regular duct cleaning. UV lights for air purification are more important for people who reside in humid areas prone to mold growth or for those with severe health issues.
How do UV Lights Work?
To understand the disease-fighting power of UV lights, you first should know what they are. On the light spectrum, ultraviolet light is the light between X-rays and Visible Infrared. That means it emits a charge that is harmless to humans but powerful enough to attack and immobilize bacteria, viruses, mold, and other airborne germs at the cellular level. When installed in the cool, dark inner coils of your HVAC system, UV lights render germ cells incapable of reproducing so they swiftly die off and leave you with cleaner, healthier air.
Organisms UV Lights Eradicate:
- Rhinoviruses (common colds)
- Infectious Hepatitis
- Influenza (flu)
- Aspergillus flavus (common mold)
- Streptococcal pharyngitis (strep throat)
- Salmonella enteritidis
- Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA infections)
- Penicillium chrysogenum (common mold)
- Mycobacterium tuberculosis
