With winter quickly approaching, the long summer days spent outdoors will soon be gone. We will retreat indoors, crank up the heat, and hope that we stay warm until spring. The more time we spend indoors, the more important indoor air quality becomes. If there is someone in your home that has allergies or asthma, a poor indoor air environment can intensify their breathing problems. Even if you do not have these conditions, poor indoor air quality can increase your chances of getting a cold, having the flu, or experiencing other respiratory issues. So, what are you going to do about it? Have Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning install a Healthy Climate UV Germicidal Light in your home.
What is a Germicidal UV Light?
The light emitted by UV lights contains UV-C rays. These rays are able to change the DNA and RNA inside microorganisms like mold and bacteria. This change halts the microorganisms’ ability to grow and reproduce. This is what effectively kills off the contaminants in your indoor air. It is installed inside the duct work near the furnace. As the air passes through the furnace to be heated and then delivered through the home, it also passes through the UV light. This is what makes it possible for the UV light to come in contact with all of the air in the home. (more…)
