UV Air Scrubbers in Austin

Purify Your Air; Call AC Express Today!

It might shock you to learn what might be floating in the air around you. Microbes like dust mites, pollen cells, mold spores, and even bacteria and viruses are commonly found in all types of homes, and these factors all combine together to significantly degrade your indoor air. While most people are aware of things like odors in their homes, few people realize just how poor the air in their home may be, and solving that issue can seem like an insurmountable challenge.

However, at AC Express, we make fighting back against poor air quality easier than you may have ever imagined. Our Austin HVAC company can outfit your home with state-of-the-art technology that helps improve your indoor air quality by counteracting these biological contaminants: UV air scrubbers. These incredibly efficient and effective devices can work with nearly any central HVAC system out there today, and they are tremendously effective at removing everything from your smallest problems to your biggest in-home health issues.

What Is a UV Air Scrubber?

We know that the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays can be harmful to us when we are exposed to them for long periods of time. UV radiation can cause painful sunburns for those with fairer complexions, and are a known cause of skin cancer for everybody. So it might sound contradictory to say that these same UV rays can actually keep you and your family safer by improving your indoor air quality.

How? With devices known as Ultra Violet Germicidal Irradiation lights (or UVGI lights, for short). These lamps emit a strong, but filtered array of UV light into either the return duct or main output duct of your heating and air conditioning system, blasting all of the air that passes by with a concentrated dose of this energy. This radiation is incredibly strong, and causes irreparable harm to these microscopic biological organisms that are found in the air they breathe. For some of these microbes, the blast destroys them almost immediately. For larger particles, the blast may not kill them, but the damage it does is so strong that these microbes are rendered inert to the point where they can no longer reproduce. That means putting one of these simple devices into your HVAC system will actually kill airborne germs, bacteria and mold.

There is also no harmful direct UV exposure to you or your family, either. Because these lamps are installed inside your air ducts, where you will rarely if ever access, you will never actually be exposed to the radiation. Likewise, even if you somehow did manage to be exposed to one of these lamps, the filtered radiation these lamps emit does not actually cause sunburns or skin cancer. They’re perfectly harmless for use in almost every home.

Benefits of an Air Scrubber

UV air scrubbers are rapidly becoming a popular choice for homeowners looking to protect their homes and loved ones from accidental spread of disease and other issues through contaminated air. Floating viruses and bacteria cause illness, but they won’t do that when cycled through your HVAC system with a UV air scrubber. In fact, some models have undergone rigorous laboratory testing and have been shown to eliminate some of the deadliest airborne diseases we know of.

UV air scrubbers are also an extremely low-maintenance method of protection, as they generally only require you to change the bulb once every year or so. With a simple bulb swap, you’ll maintain premium-quality air sterilization and greater peace of mind.

Save yourself a trip to the doctor this year and consider an upgrade to your air filtration system instead. Contact the Austin heating & air techs at AC Express to learn more today.
