 How Does UV Air Purification Work

UV light can be utilized to damage and destroy the DNA that makes up bacteria and viruses, in the same way that too much sun can damage your skin. The UV light stops bacteria from being able to reproduce, inhibiting their ability to grow and form colonies. On the other hand, UV purifiers contaminate viruses (which aren’t living), causing them to be unable to reproduce in the human body.


UV Light Purification FAQs


Q: What’s the difference between air filters and UV air purifiers?

A: Both effectively decrease the number of harmful elements in the air. UV air purifiers focus on removing already airborne germs, bacteria, and molds from the air, while air filters are focused on removing harmful particulates before they become airborne. Essentially, the difference between the two comes down to where the devices are installed, with air filters being installed directly into your homes HVAC system, versus air purifiers which are stand-alone.

Q: Why would I want to install a UV light?

A: In your home, UV lights can be effective for significantly reducing the amount of microbials in the ductwork, coils, and airspace in your home while also reducing the viruses, germs and bacteria that can travel throughout your home.

Q: What maintenance does a UV air purifier require?

A: UV air purifiers are very low maintenance. The only thing you’ll need to do once the purifier is installed is to change out the lamp/bulbs once every year or two, depending on the model.

Q: What does the CDC say about UV light treatment?

A: For those looking to maintain the cleanest air environment possible, the CDC recommends UVGI air purifiers. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the CDC collaborated on creating a manual for effective UV light installation.
