How Do UV Lights Clean My Air Conditioner?
Your air handler is damp, cold, and dark, making it the ideal place for
bacteria to grow. When this happens, bacteria are blown throughout your
entire home, polluting your air and making your family sick. While
regular maintenance and cleaning can help control the issue, the only real way to end bacteria
in your air handler is by installing an ultraviolet light.
UV lights work by killing and stopping the growth of bacteria. It does this by attacking
the bacteria at a molecular level. The UV rays break down the molecular
structure of the bacteria. It also prevents mold and other harmful organic
growths from forming in your air handler.
After you’ve installed your UV light, it will kill 99 percent of
germs in less than 24 hours and your air is instantly cleaner and healthier.
