The air quality inside a home can be a lot worse than the air outside. As such, you have a right to worry about the health of you and your loved ones. That’s why it’s vital to arm your house with the right IAQ solutions. Here are five benefits that UV light air purifiers offer your Urbana, MD, home:
Eliminates Unwanted Odors
Oftentimes, odors don’t stay in one area of your home. Your HVAC systems transport them to the rest of your house. This includes odors from paint, cooking, tobacco and other smells that can cause health issues. UV lights break down these molecules, removing these unwanted nuisances.
Dust and other contaminants build up in your ductwork, which is why some people turn to a ductless AC for their home. However, UV lights clear the buildup of contaminants in your ductwork, improving airflow and lowering maintenance costs.
Enhances Indoor Air Quality
UV lights also improve indoor air quality. Dust, pollen and other particulates trigger asthma and allergies as well as other health issues. With fewer particulates to worry about, the health of those inside the house improves and you notice you breathe easier.
Increases HVAC Efficiency
When there’s a buildup of dust, debris or other contaminants, this not only clogs your ductwork but increases the wear and tear on the other system components. When your system has to work harder to provide the same comfort level, it uses more energy and reduces system efficiency.
Reduces Condensate Drain Clogging
Your air conditioner produces moisture as it cools and dehumidifies your home. This moisture goes down a condensate drain, but over time, the moisture builds up and causes clogs. UV lights reduce moisture, protecting your home from structural damage and keeping your condensate line from clogging.
You may not realize it, but your indoor air quality could be making you uncomfortable and impacting your health. Contact Eric Smock Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. today to learn more about our UV light air scrubbers.
