If you’re not happy with the quality of the air in your St. Louis, Missouri, home, you might want to consider purchasing a UV air purifier. These devices use ultraviolet light to prevent the spread of viruses and other microorganisms in the air. Some also contain filters to trap particles. Learn how a UV air purifier can sanitize your air and promote good health for you and your family.
A UV air cleaner can remove smells caused by biological growth, including unpleasant rotting and musty odors. They can also keep microorganisms and small insects from reproducing and damaging your walls, ceilings, floors, and furniture. Since household dust contains a fair amount of dead insects and biological growth, a UV lamp can improve your indoor air quality. You might even be able to clean your home less often.
UV air purifiers can kill many of the viruses and bacteria that spread colds and other illnesses. They’re a good tool to help keep your kids healthy even in cold season. They can also help protect people with weakened immune systems from contracting illnesses caused by airborne germs.
UV light can’t catch particulates like pollen, but a simple filterless UV air cleaner uses less power than an air cleaner with a filter since it only comes on when your heater or air conditioner’s fan is on. UV will extend the life of your HVAC system’s air filters by keeping them from getting clogged by biological growth. It will also contribute toward better airflow, reduced wear and tear, lower utility bills, and fewer breakdowns.
