A UV air purifier can kill some microorganisms and keep others from reproducing by damaging their DNA. Unlike the harmful UVA or UVB light that causes sunburns, it uses a UVC light that the Earth’s atmosphere normally blocks. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of installing a UV air purifier in your Tallahassee, Florida, home.

Fewer Illnesses

UV air purifiers can help you keep winter colds and other viruses and bacteria from spreading. They can even prevent pests such as dust mites or cockroaches. They’re ideal for people who have weakened immune systems due to existing illnesses. UV air purifiers can also help you avoid:

  • Bad smells
  • Asthma or allergy symptoms
  • Rashes
  • Eye irritation
  • Sore throats

Higher Energy Savings

You can’t use a UV air purifier to catch dead organisms, dirt, pollen, pet dander or other small particles. But it uses less energy than an air cleaner with a filter. UV lights only operate when your heater or air conditioner’s fan is on, while conventional air purifiers have small fans that stay on constantly. A UV lamp can also keep biological growth from clogging your HVAC system’s air filter and making it less efficient.

Easy Maintenance

UV air purifiers can help you avoid extra dust on your furniture and floors. It can also help you keep your HVAC system’s ductwork clean.

They can also reduce the risk of damage to walls, ceilings, and other parts of your home stemming from biological growth or a pest infestation. UV lamps don’t have filters that need changing like many other air purifiers. However, you’ll need to replace the UV bulb once a year.
