Keeping your home clean and hygienic has always been a concern, but it’s even more so now after living through a pandemic and as we approach winter, when cold and flu viruses are rampant.
Your furnace’s air filter works hard to keep your home’s area clean, but it often isn’t enough for truly clean air, even if it’s a residential-grade HEPA filter. Fortunately, you can combat the spread of these germs in your own home – and improve your overall indoor air quality – with a Sanuvox system, a whole-home air purifier that relies on UV light to clean the air you breathe.
Schedule a Sanuvox consultation with Meyer Heating and Air, and we’ll tell you all about your options for one of these incredible air purification systems for your St. Louis home.
Sanuvox air scrubbers kill 99.99999 percent of germs and harmful particles in the air and has shown to be effective at killing common respiratory viruses. Sanuvox systems are installed using your existing HVAC ductwork and integrated into your Ruud system – or any other brand – or as a standalone system.
Its two main components, a UV lamp and reflector chamber, work in concert to destroy chemicals, particulates, and even odors in the air. There are no cleansers you must apply or filters to change out.
To start the air purification process, your Sanuvox pulls the contaminated air from your home into a chamber with a UV lamp. The UV and UVC germicidal aspect of the lamp destroys odors, chemicals from off-gassing of construction materials and home furnishings, viruses, and bacteria. It doesn’t matter how tiny these particles are; almost nothing gets by the UV lamp.
The air is then sent into the reflector chamber, which directs UV energy for even more purification, tackling contaminants that made it through the first chamber.
The sanitization cycle is complete, and this clean air is recirculated throughout your home.
HEPA, which stands for high-efficiency particulate air, is the name given to a type of mechanical air filter. A HEPA filter works by forcing air through fine mesh to trap harmful particles in the air, like pollen, pet dander, dust mites, certain odors, and some larger viruses or bacteria.
The Sanuvox is not an air filter; it’s an air purification system that relies on UV rays and a reflector chamber to destroy particles that are normally found floating in the air in your home. You don’t have to change the filter and worry about puffs of dust and other particulates flying into your face; the Sanuvox is self-contained and powerful.
However, the Sanuvox systems do contain a HEPA filter as one of the final steps before air is released back into your home.
The Sanuvair S300 Residential performs HEPA filtration, odor reduction, and UV air purification. Because it’s a high-tech system, only an HVAC professional should attempt installation.
For a home with a forced-air HVAC system, the Sanuvox can be installed directly into the return air plenum – and you must run your fan at all times.
If you don’t have a forced-air HVAC system, or if you simply don’t want it connected to your existing ductwork, the Sanuvox can be installed using a new return duct on one side of your home, with a supply duct and diffuser installed at the other end. It also can be wall-mounted using an optional inlet and outlet louvers that attach to the unit’s collar mount port openings.
All you have to do is let us know that you’re interested in a system. We’ll send an expert technician to your home, where they will conduct an analysis and help determine the equipment you’ll need to get better indoor air quality and breathe easier.
After your Sanuvox system is installed, you’ll be breathing some of the cleanest air in Chesterfield, Arnold, Ballwin, or O’Fallon – and everywhere else in the metro, too.
Always follow advice from the local health department, and consider these tips for maintaining cleanliness at home.
