There are a few different ways in which you may recognize the need for UV air purifiers in your home. It is important to note first, though, that UV air purification systems are not meant to replace air filters or electronic air purifiers, which trap and remove airborne pollutants throughout the house. UV air purifiers do not function in such a manner, instead emitting low levels of UV radiation in order to destroy biological pollutants, such as viruses, mold, and bacteria. Because of this, they are a great supplement to, but not replacement for, more traditional air cleaning methods.
One sign that you may benefit from the use of UV (ultraviolet) germicidal lights is the aggravation of allergy or asthma symptoms. Biological pollutants, such as those targeted by UV germicidal lamps, can really wreak havoc on such ailments. By relying on UV air purifiers to destroy such pollutants, you won’t have to worry about them continuing to thrive while trapped in an unclean filter.
You should also consider the use of UV germicidal lights if you notice spots of mold popping up throughout your home. Of course, these air purifiers are not going to get rid of mold that has already taken root in your home. They can, however, help to stop that mold from spreading throughout the house by destroying spores as they pass through your ductwork.
