You may not realize that your HVAC system can circulate allergens and other airborne organisms throughout your Asheville, NC, home. You can change your air filters regularly, but that only reduces some of the dust, pollen and other allergens. Below are five reasons to install a UV light air purifier in your home.
Helps Clean the HVAC Unit
A UV light air purifier keeps your HVAC unit cleaner and helps to reduce clogging in the condensate line. A UV light helps reduce the moisture within the condensate line that leads to clogs. It also decreased the buildup of dust and other debris that result in blockages that require HVAC maintenance to clear.
When your HVAC system works efficiently, it uses less power, which means you save more money on your electric bill. An efficient system also reduces wear and tear as it doesn’t have to work as hard. When the HVAC coil or ducts become dirty, this hinders airflow, making your unit work harder to keep you comfortable.
Enhances Indoor Air Quality
This benefit is a given, but when you don’t have so much dust, pollen, and pet dander circulating in the air of your home through your HVAC system, you have better air quality. Poor indoor air quality leads to both short- and long-term health issues, such as headaches, dizziness, respiratory diseases and more.
Some indoor pollutants, such as tobacco products, paints and hairspray, have an unpleasant odor that lingers in the home. A UV light air purifier breaks down those odor molecules so you can relax and breathe easier.
You can find volatile organic compounds in most everyday things, including cigarette smoke, cleaning agents, perfume and more. VOCs cause ill health effects ranging from dizziness to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. A UV light air purifier removes VOCs from your home so you don’t have to deal with their nasty effects on your health.
