Putting UV Lighting to Work For Your Indoor Air Quality
There are a variety of essential products and services available, intended to help homeowners improve the air quality of their home. This is an important step to take because the air quality of the average home is not what it should be, even here in Newnan. In fact, the air inside a structure can be up to 200 times more polluted than outdoor air.
Many people erroneously believe that because newer homes are sealed tight for better energy efficiency that this also helps keep out polluted air. Yet, it also does not allow for contaminated indoor air to escape, so the quality of your interior air actually gets worse over time. A useful device that many homeowners are beginning to opt for is UV lighting, and here are some reasons why.
Learning About the Benefits
So how what is it and what are the benefits of UV lighting for your indoor air quality?
Think about what it is like to step outside and take a deep breath of fresh air, usually some place with a lot of natural sunlight exposure. This is because of the cleaning effect the UV rays of natural sunlight can create.
In fact, for years now, medical facilities have been using this type of technology for both medical surfaces, and the air. You will find this approach commonly used in clinics and hospitals.
While filtration systems are a useful tool for capturing airborne microorganisms and debris like pet dander and dust mite feces, it doesn't catch them all. Using a UV light helps to address the further need for irradiation.
Your UV lighting will be installed near the evaporator coil in your ductwork in order to minimize the amount of airborne contaminants that are allowed to pass through. This is an integral part of reducing the germs and other pollutants that infiltrate your home.
Keep in mind, this is vital to get for households where any member may be suffering from asthma, allergies or other respiratory related health issues. However, this is also an essential part of helping make sure that no one in your home develops any of these types of ailments. Plus, it uses the same amount of electricity as a single standard bulb.
