Did you hear that UV light can restrict and eliminate mold growth in air conditioning units? This is fortunately true that ultraviolet germicidal light in the AC coil works as a mold reduction strategy. In case you are allergic to mold, this light can turn out to be a boon for you.
If you are not aware of what ultraviolet germicidal lights are, here is a brief description of it. They are a form of devices that utilizes a popular disinfectant, i.e. UVC radiation to limit the spread of allergens and pathogens, including bacteria and viruses.
How Do They Work?
To track and prevent mold growth, UV germicidal lights emit a short wavelength light or radiation that kills the microorganisms by damaging their genetic structure. It not only works for bacteria and viruses but is also effective in killing the multiplying or reproducing cells of molds, thereby keeping a check on their growth.
As per studies conducted, UV germicidal lights are so effective that they can significantly reduce the percentage of mold and bacterial growth by up to 99%.
Also, getting the coils and ducts cleaned periodically can help in preventing humid and moist conditions that are perfect for the mold to multiply. At Aire One Peel, our HVAC technicians can install UV lights for AC system coils and drain pans.
Why Install Germicidal Lights?
When it comes to air conditioners, ultraviolet light can disinfect the air flowing through the ducts and the result is clean and healthy air. As the air passes through the AC, the light can kill all the unwanted microorganisms, mildew, and mold growth it carries.
Also, UV light plays a crucial role in maintaining the performance of an air conditioning unit along with preventing the multiplication of mold inside the ducts and coils. If you have these lights installed in your HVAC system, you are surely going to breathe healthy and clean indoor air.
