All of us face a variety of risks to our health as we go about our day-to-day lives. Driving in cars, flying in planes, engaging in recreational activities, and being exposed to environmental pollutants all pose varying degrees of risk. Some risks are simply unavoidable. Some we choose to accept because to do otherwise would restrict our ability to lead our lives the way we want. And some are risks we might decide to avoid if we had the opportunity to make informed choices. Indoor air pollution is one risk that you can do something about.
Indoor Air Quality Concerns
In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
In addition, people who may be exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods of time are often those most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution. Such groups include the young, the elderly, and the chronically ill, especially those suffering from respiratory or cardiovascular disease. What can you do to keep the air quality indoors at an acceptable level? Contact All Volusia and Flagler Heating and Air for answers to your air quality questions.
UV Light Kills Germs on Surfaces & in the Air
For over a century scientists have known of the germ-killing properties of ultraviolet light. The antimicrobial power of UV light is used in water treatment facilities, in the food industry, and in hospitals where it is used to clean the air and reduce the threat of airborne infection as well as to disinfect surfaces and surgical instruments. Today this powerful disinfecting technology is available for our homes and businesses resulting in healthier, safer, indoor environments.
Why Ultraviolet Light? Kill Germs With Light
For over a century scientists have known that certain frequencies of light have a devastating effect on microbial life. We now know that exposure to ultraviolet light in the range of 254 NM (UV-C band) disrupts the DNA of micro-organisms thus preventing them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.
UV Light- A Well Established Disinfection Technology
UV light disinfection is now widely used in hospitals and laboratories to sanitize instruments and work surfaces and to prevent the spread potentially lethal airborne infectious diseases. The technology is used by the food industry to sterilize food before packaging and water treatment systems large and small now incorporate UV light as a chemical-free means of purification.
A Cleaner Air Handler
Installation of a germicidal UV light inside the air handler inhibits the growth of mold there which saves energy by allowing the system to operate more efficiently. A cleaner system also requires less maintenance.
Germs in the Air You Breathe
Like it or not the indoor air you breathe has a lot of stuff in it that you don’t want, like viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew, and allergens. Some are only annoying, others can make you sick. Because air passes repeatedly through your HVAC system (in fact many microbes like the cool dark damp interior of the system) this is the ideal place for germs to multiply and spread throughout the house.
A Whole-House UV Air Purifier - The Best Defense
Because it works inside your central air system a whole-house UV air purifier is able to intercept airborne pathogens and destroy them as they pass by. As air cycles through the system it passes by the UV light many times exposing and re-exposing airborne microbes to it's sterilizing effect. this has proven to be a safe, economical, chemical-free way to significantly reduce airborne contaminants indoors.
