Cold season in Cincinnati not only means low temperatures – it’s the time of year where everyone seems to be coming down with a cold, or worse! The flu virus is most common in the fall and winter seasons, and many home and business owners take precautions during this time to protect their health.
In addition to a flu shot and other preventative health measures, it’s a smart idea to equip your home or business with indoor air quality systems to stop the spread of germs and viruses indoors. Poor indoor air quality has been linked to increased susceptibility and the spread of illness. Fight back during cold season by installing ultraviolet air purifiers to stop illness from thriving indoors.
Ultraviolet (UV) air purifiers, also called UV lights, use UV radiation to kill viruses, bacteria, and germs in the air. Low-power UV bulbs are installed within your HVAC system, treating air as it passes through the duct system from your heating system. The virus, mold, or germ particles are rendered inert once treated by ultraviolet light, and the process does not create harmful byproducts.
Ultraviolet air purifiers are preferred for many reasons. They are over 99% effective for treating viruses, germs, mold, mildew, and other pollutants that can cause illness. They do not consume much energy, making them quite affordable to run. UV air purifiers can be used year-round to treat bacteria, viruses, mold, pollen, and other allergens your family or employees may be susceptible to. The use of natural UV energy in the treatment process makes UV air purifiers a safe option for indoor air quality improvement.
Need more convincing? UV air purifiers are used in hospitals and medical settings to sterilize air, preventing the spread of viruses and infections. The same technology can be used in your home or business to improve health and end the passing back and forth of winter illnesses.
