UV Air Scrubbers in Philadelphia

Breathe Cleaner Air, Call Joseph Giannone Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning

The air you’re breathing probably isn’t as good as you think it is. This might come as a surprise to many of you—most people take pride in their clean and sanitary home, so the idea that the air in their home might be dirty is absurd or even unthinkable. However, it’s far more likely than you think; in fact, some studies have found that indoor air can be up to ten times worse in quality than the air outside. That’s not a comforting fact if you struggle with allergies or a respiratory condition likes asthma, COPD, or a weakened immune system.

However, the key to cleaner air is only a phone call away: a UV air scrubber system from Joseph Giannone Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning.

How a UV Air Scrubber Works

A UV air scrubber is a fairly simple device: it’s a specialized lamp that is mounted inside your HVAC system’s return duct (though sometimes they’re in your main exit duct if they can’t be placed in the return side). This lamp features a specialized bulb that emits a strong, concentrated dose of ultraviolet light. Also known as UV light, this type of light is particularly harsh, and can be fatal to small organisms. In fact, UV light is typically what causes sunburns to those with a fairer complexion (though these bulbs emit filtered light, so no need to worry about this danger in your home).

UV light may be hard on skin, but it’s lethal to microbes. As air is pulled past this lamp, these microscopic organisms in the air are blasted with a concentrated dose of UV radiation. For smaller organisms, one of these direct blasts can be fatal, eliminating them immediately. For larger microbes, the blast may not kill them off right away, but it can have a lasting impact by scrambling their DNA and preventing them from reproducing.

UV air scrubbers can eliminate all of the following:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Mold spores
  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Microscopic insects

The Benefits of Sanitized Air

You might be surprised to learn just what might be floating in your air around you. Germs that carry diseases, allergy-triggering pollen, and mold spores looking for a place to settle are all remarkably common. While our bodies are built to filter out many of these things, those who struggle with this due to weakened immune systems or plenty of other issues can find their quality of life significantly reduced. An air sanitizing UV light can be the investment you need in a better home and better future.

Those who don’t struggle with these chronic conditions can benefit as well. If you have ever wanted to ensure your home is truly clean and healthy, an air scrubber is the investment you’ve been looking for. By filtering your air through this sanitizing light, you can rest assured that your home truly is as clean as you would like it to be, and it will happen automatically without the use of sanitizing chemicals like aerosols or alcohols.
