Get UV Germicidal Lights this Winter

Winter is usually a difficult time when it comes to  colds and flu bugs in your home. The low humidity levels here in Draper, UT can dry out your sinuses, which is our body’s natural defense against germs. That’s one of the reasons why winter sees a lot of illness, and because we often button up our homes to retain heat, cold bugs can easily circulate from family member to family member. 

The good news is, there’s a solution. A UV germicidal light installed at the apex of your air ducts can eliminate germs and other biological contaminants as you run your heater. Here’s a quick breakdown on how it all works.

Ultraviolet Light

UV stands for “ultraviolet,” which is the secret to how this system works. We can’t see ultraviolet light, but we can feel it in the sunlight when we go outside. UV lights are often used at concerts and amusement parks to make white clothes glow in the dark. It’s perfectly safe for humans and pets at the levels used in germicidal lights, but will either kill or sterilize any single-celled organism that comes into contact with.

The secret is using the forced air of your furnace to scour the air in your home clean. The UV light shines across the width of the ducts, and as the furnace blows, the air slowly circulates through it, scrubbing it clean. Over time, the whole home will be sterilized, resulting not only in healthier family members, but a fresher, cleaner feeling overall. Best of all, as long as the UV bulbs are periodically switched out, there’s very little maintenance to be performed, since the device has few moving parts.

The professionals at At Your Service Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning can install, repair and maintain a UV germicidal light for your home today!
