One way we can protect the air quality inside your home and lower the risk of infections is with germicidal UV lights! Here are some commonly asked questions – so you can see if these systems are right for you.

How do UV lights improve indoor air quality?

UV light affects the DNA of mold, fungus and viruses, preventing them from growing, reproducing and setting on the surfaces of the HVAC system’s coil and ducts. The goal with UV lighting is to essentially clean the HVAC system from the inside, so the air circulating through the home is cleaner and healthier to breathe.

What determines the effectiveness of UV lights?

UV lights are not a one-size-fits-all purchase. Depending on the size of the HVAC system, different strengths of the UV light and size of the equipment will be needed. It’s always best to consult the experts at Alger Oil & Propane to get the size right!

Will UV lights be enough to clean the air?

While UV lights are great for removing microorganisms from the home, they are only a piece of the puzzle that is good indoor air quality! Consider also installing media filters to trap tiny particles that can also negatively impact the air circulating through your home, and check out the other IAQ solutions we provide!
