Have you ever heard of a UV air filter? With tons of benefits for your home, maybe it’s time to learn about these great air filters.
Studies from the EPA show that the air you breathe in your home every day could be the most polluted air you breathe. There are millions of harmful pollutants and irritants in each room of your home. This includes less harmful irritants like dust, to pet dander, pollen, black mold spores, and even bacteria and viruses. If you have allergies, asthma, or other breathing problems, the quality of your air could play a large role in how these illnesses affect you.
Even though you can’t see harmful airborne pathogens (aside from dust), they’re contributing to your quality of life. They make it more difficult to breathe, and some contaminants can even cause chronic illnesses. You might not be able to control the air you breathe outside, in the office, or at a friend’s place, but you can control the air you breathe at home.
Where does the UV air filter come into play? UV light has traditionally been used to disinfect water and surfaces, but exposure to UV light also cleans polluted air. Air is drawn into the UV chamber by a fan. The air is exposed to short-wave ultraviolet light, which inactivates harmful airborne pathogens. Then, treated, clean air is pumped back out of the filter. Impurities are removed, leaving you able to breathe easier. UV air filters are especially helpful in rooms such as the bathroom or kitchen, which tend to attract airborne pathogens. They can be sold as stand-alone systems, but can also be installed in pre-existing HVAC systems.
