A Home Air Purification System Is Now a Necessity for Many Homeowners in St. Louis

Now more than ever, homeowners are considering home air purification systems as part of their plan to keep themselves and their families’ health in top condition. Not only has home technology for air purification advanced, but the medical community is in agreement that excellent IAQ (indoor air quality) has benefits for all, not limited to protection from some airborne illnesses, reduction in allergy-related symptoms, and better brain function.

Home technology for air purification has advanced right along with this newfound interest in IAQ from homeowners. Now, a whole house air purification system can be installed affordably inside your HVAC system using a technology that commercial buildings and medical facilities rely upon: UV light.

In this article, we’ll explore how UV light purification systems work, what benefits they provide for your home, and how to get in touch with Meyer Heating & Air for superior service on all products, including these important residential purification systems.

All About UV Light and Air Purification Systems

You might be most familiar with UV light from the tanning bed or those black light posters you used to have in your college dorm. UV (ultraviolet) light is extremely powerful, and – for that reason – is considered a state-of-the-art and highly effective tool used in the elimination of airborne contaminants. It is not uncommon to see medical equipment and operating rooms sterilized with UV rays to neutralize infection.

UV light – which is light beyond the visible spectrum – has enough energy packed into it to serve as a disinfectant by breaking down chemical bonds and destroying the DNA and RNA or microorganisms. When this is complete, that microorganism is unable to multiply and is therefore inactivated.

Much like other technologies that were previously only available to those who paid top dollar, the power of UV light can be affordably incorporated into your home HVAC system. It’s just like 10 years ago when only professional photographers owned cameras that could do what the phone in your pocket does now!

In a home air purification system, UV light is installed right inside your HVAC system, so that as microorganisms including mold spores, bacteria, and viruses flow through, they are destroyed and not able to find their way back through the system as the air recycles.

A whole house air purification system can’t simply rely on air filters – even the most expensive air filters – for total protection. While filters can stop some particles from getting through, it doesn’t destroy them. This is why UV light is a complete solution for air purification in the home.
