What a UV Air Purifier Can Do for You

Air purification is one of the most popular topics to write and talk about these days. With a global pandemic surging across the United States, it’s vital that we keep our homes clean and safe by using any means necessary. Luckily, with the technology that we offer, it’s not that hard.

UV germicidal lights in Bozeman, MT have been an excellent way to clean air and remove contaminants from a home environment. They’re relatively inexpensive to install, they work by using the scientific process of UV radiation, and they’re undeniably effective at eliminating germs.

If you’ve ever wondered whether or not your home could be perfect for a UV air purifier, then we’re glad you’ve stumbled on this blog post. We’ll talk about what these systems do and why we consider them one of the most effective air purifiers on the market.

Utilizing Radiation

UV air purifiers use radiation to eliminate harmful microorganisms and protect your air. Before you start thinking that this system will harm you with radiation, we’d like to stop that thought in its tracks. UV lights use ultraviolet radiation which is the same type of radiation we experience from sunlight.

UV rays penetrate beneath a cell’s membrane to eliminate contaminants from a distance.

UV light radiation isn’t as harmful to our bodies as it is to microorganisms because of how deep it can penetrate. Our skin protects our sensitive inner organs while a single-celled organism like a virus or cell of bacteria will be eradicated and its ability to reproduce will be impeded. This is why these systems are so safe.

Germs are harmful because of their innate ability to reproduce en masse. By halting this process, you remain protected from infection.

Still not convinced that this system won’t harm you or your family? Well, we even mount these UV germicidal lights in your air ducts so they’re out of sight and out of mind. You’ll never deal with any radiation because you’ll never come in contact with the air purifier in the first place. All you’ll come in contact with is the air that has been cleaned and purified from the system!

Best Practices to Keep Safe

Ultimately, an air purifier is going to work best in a home with safe practices that are already in use. If your air is cleaned of germs, mold spores, and other contaminants, you’ll still need to protect yourself in other ways.

UV air purifiers work best when homeowners wash their hands, cover their mouths when they sneeze or cough, and other preventative health as well. UV air purifiers can’t help eliminate germs that are brought in from outside on surfaces, or from guests in your home that cough or sneeze. They can only clean the substances that exist in your air through your ductwork.

Keeping a home safe and healthy isn’t just about investing in the most expensive indoor air quality system. It’s about working together to practice good hygiene and help to protect each other from our own germs. Allow a UV air purifier to work hand in hand with your own safe practices!
