Ultraviolet (UV) lighting devices offer a wide range of health benefits when we install them in your home’s HVAC system. If you live in Minneapolis and St. Paul and you’re concerned about clean air in your home, we recommend adding UV lighting to your heating and cooling equipment. Below are some benefits of UV lights in your duct system. If you have any other questions, you can contact Dust Doctors.


1. Improved Airflow

UV lighting prevents microbial buildup on air filters, cooling coils, drain pans, and duct surfaces. Your entire HVAC system will operate smoothly throughout the year. UV lighting reduces contaminants built up in your system’s ductwork; thus, the heat exchange and airflow are both dramatically improved. Improved airflow reduces your home’s energy use, enhances air quality, and reduces maintenance costs over the life of your HVAC system.


2. Energy Efficiency

Implementing a UV light to your HVAC system can reduce your home’s energy consumption by up to 35 percent. UV lighting returns the heating and cooling system’s performance to optimal levels, reducing its power consumption, and helping it work like new. With the addition of UV lighting and regular maintenance, we can keep your system in excellent condition over a longer periods of time.


3. Low-Cost Investment for Your System

UV installations are a cost-effective investment for modern homeowners because they keep your system clean and you don’t have to spend a lot of money. We will have to evaluate your home and your HVAC system to determine if a UV light is compatible with your setup. There are a few factors we’ll need to consider:


●        The size of the UV light the system requires

●        The number of UV lights we need to install

●        Where we need to place them

●        The reflectivity of the surrounding surfaces

●        Your Home’s temperature and humidity levels


4. Reducing Illnesses and Diseases

An HVAC system is designed to circulate air throughout the building. The downside is that it can also distribute a variety of airborne bacteria and viruses. UV lights help reduce disease transmission by destroying pathogens and other microorganisms that would usually thrive in an HVAC system. While placing filters in the system does an adequate job of blocking the dust and particles throughout the house, it does not prevent bacteria and germs from circulating. This is why UV lights are a better option.
