Ultraviolet light has been around for over 100 years. Over several decades, UV light has demonstrated that it can sterilize small and large areas as well as kill germs, mold, and bacteria. UV lights are efficient enough to use in hospitals, restaurants and other facilities where cleanliness and sanitation are paramount.


We install UV light in duct systems for residential HVAC systems for the same reason that other institutions use them. UV lighting keeps your duct system clean by killing germs as they pass through the duct. Below, we discuss the benefits of Ultraviolet lights and how they can keep the air in your home clean.


Just How Dirty Do HVAC Air Ducts Get?

If left unchecked, a heating and cooling system’s air ducts can suffer from dirt buildup. What is lingering in that dirt?


Normal contaminants include:

●        Dander

●        Dust

●        Chemicals

●        Smoke

●        Pollen

●        Mold


Pollutants and contaminants like those listed above can lead to dirty air that you and your family breathe every day. As a result, respiratory problems such as bronchitis, allergies, and asthma can gradually worsen over time. Ordinarily healthy members of your family may suddenly notice a problem with their breathing. Numerous health problems can arise as a result of dirty air circulating through your home.


UV Lights Make Your Home Interior More Healthy

Dust Doctors technicians can install a simple device known as a UV light on the inside of the duct on or near the handler and wire the light directly into the HVAC unit. The UV light begins killing contaminants as soon as it is installed. Installation is quick and easy, and you’ll start seeing the results almost immediately. Other benefits of UV lights include:


Easy Maintenance. We can replace the UV bulb about once a year. It only takes a few minutes.

Uses Low Energy. UV lights average about $2.00 per month in energy costs. Compared to other methods of purifying the air in your home, they’re a far better investment.


Reduced Odors. The air will smell better with fewer pollutants floating around.


Cleaner HVAC System. The condensation drain, coil, fan, and other components of your HVAC system will be much cleaner.


Door Doctors Can Install Your Ultraviolet Light System

The bottom line is that HVAC UV lights are an effective method for improving the air inside your home. Once we install the light, you’ll begin to notice the difference in how clean and odor-free the air is in your home in only a few short hours.
