UV Air Purification

A UV air purifier is designed to use short-wave ultraviolet light (UV-C light) to inactivate airborne pathogens and microorganisms like mold, bacteria, and viruses. The main goal is to reduce indoor air pollutants. UV air purification is also known as  UV germicidal irradiation or UVGI air purification. 

The way the UV-C air purification system works is quite simple. They use UV lamps that can potentially alter the DNA of microorganisms and inactivate or destroy them.

Millions and millions of microscopic contaminants such as allergens like dust and pollen or more serious issues like mold and bacteria live in the air in your home. A UV air purifier is a UV germicidal light that most airborne bacteria are vulnerable to. These viruses survive better inside because they do not get the UV rays from the sun. 

The UV air purifier is installed inside the ductwork so it prevents humans from being overexposed to UV light.
