Indoor air quality can have a significant impact on your family’s health. Many allergens and other contaminants may exist in your home’s air, worsening symptoms for those who struggle with respiratory illnesses. Check out these four benefits of UV light air purifiers to see if they may fit your needs for air quality in your Kinston, NC, home:
Kills Biological Contaminants
A properly functioning air conditioning system accumulates moisture as it evaporates humidity from your home. This is a good environment for the growth of any number of pathogens that thrive in humidity. A UV light air purifier kills the microbes before they circulate through your home.
Reduce Volatile Organic Compounds
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) include human-made chemicals such as paints, refrigerants and pharmaceuticals. Many of these compounds are common groundwater contaminants, and several may exist as gases. A UV air purifier reduces VOCs in your home’s air.
Enhanced HVAC Efficiency
Dirt, allergens and other contaminants can clog your HVAC filter, coils and ductwork, reducing airflow and causing the system to work harder than it should. A UV light filter may help keep your system clean by removing harmful contaminants before they reach the system.
This enhances airflow, meaning your system won’t have to run as long to heat and cool your home. As your system becomes more efficient, you will likely see reductions in utility costs and system repairs.
Prevent Condensate Drain Line Clogs
Air conditioning systems remove humidity from the home by draining it through the condensate drain line. In time, these lines will clog, requiring a repair call. UV light air purifiers remove moisture from the system, which may mean your condensate line clogs less often.
