How to Install UV Lights in Air Handler
According to the EPA, indoor air quality, including surprisingly in large, well-enclosed commercial buildings and offices, is among the top environmental risks. To address this problem, the use of UV lights in air handlers indoors is one of the best solutions available. Using UV light for removing airborne bacteria and germs has been proven by the test of time. If you want improved air quality inside your home, office, or larger spaces like industrial structures, you can learn here how to install UV lamps in your air handler.
UV lamps were used first time in 1909 to disinfect water systems. Then in 1936 they were used to sterilize air in operation rooms in France. These days, these systems are used in versatile areas such as bottled water plants, sewage plants, municipal water plants, and more places. Since they are getting less expensive, you can have one in your home or office also.
Although (free) UV rays from the sun perform this process of sterilizing for the atmosphere, you can replicate this system by using artificially produced UV rays. Ultra violet rays coming from a UV lamp prevent the breeding and growth of bacteria, virus, molds, fungi, and other harmful germs present in the air. In addition, they remove air pollutants, odors, smoke, chemical odors, and other contamination in the air.
UV lights present in a HVAC (Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning) system start the oxidation process in advance whenever the system is switched on. This process includes hydo-peroxides, ozonized ions, hydro-oxide ions, and super-oxide ions. These oxidizers work for freshening the air and produce back oxygen. Here is a guide for how to install UV lamps in air handler.
