Fight Allergies in London with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was originally used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to clean hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your London home’s environment healthier.

A UV lamp can decontaminate HVAC systems and enhance the air quality in your London home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens within 10 seconds of contact.

This can prompt relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid locations where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC system work longer, since they keep components clean.

Our Experts can advise you on the system that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is upheld by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are installed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work all the time. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as fast as 10 seconds, this powerful light halts contaminants from growing throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in battling germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to eliminate 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold concentration in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.

A germicidal system can also take care of scents and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not practical against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you use a few precautions.

The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a lower wavelength than light you can detect. It’s at fault for creating painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can cause wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more powerful, so it’s important to let Roy Inch & Sons Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning handle installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or allow bare skin touch it.
