Better Health With Ultraviolet Germicidal Protection Air Purifiers During Furnace Season

With heating season approaching it’s always good to change the air filters and have the furnace cleaned. It’s also time to think about your home’s health. An unhealthy home can make you sick, and with windows and doors closed all winter it’s a good idea to consider adding an air duct mount germicidal protection system. These air purifiers sterilize air and destroy bacteria, viruses, and mold. Very popular with allergy sufferers they are also a gread addition to any home for health reasons. UV is known to destroy many airborne pathogens. Those with allergies or asthma should consider germicidal air purifier protection. Newer homes are built air tight for increased efficiency, but that means the home cannot breathe and air becomes stagnant. If you have a new home you need a UV air purifier, and duct mounted units clean the entire house, not just a room.

Everyone faces many risks, including various pollutants and toxins in their daily environment. Most of us know that outdoor air pollutants such as smog or car exhaust are toxic, but many of us do not realize how dangerous the air inside buildings can be to our health. The EPA states that the air even in the largest and most industrialized cities is less toxic than air found in typical homes. Many people do not know that indoor air pollutants can be two to five times higher than outdoor air pollution and can sometimes be 100 times higher.

Various micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungi often become airborne and this is a common cause of illness or allergy. With the threat of biological warfare, the eradication of airborne pathogens becomes even more important.

Ultraviolet germicidal lamps provide a much more powerful and concentrated effect of ultraviolet energy that can be found naturally. Such lamps sanitize air that is passed directly in their path to destroy pathogens that come in contact with the UV rays. Musty, moldy type odors can be eradicated, along with tuberculosis, cold and flu viruses, and other airborne diseases. These air purification systems are particularly beneficial to those suffering from allergies (common allergens are molds, mildew, and fungi). These microbes are destroyed, improving health and breathing conditions.
