Improving Air Quality
We spend up to 90% of our time indoors and according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside our homes is up to 100x more polluted than outdoor air. If too little outdoor air enters a dwelling or office, microorganisms can collect to levels that pose health and comfort problems. This problem can be especially serious in energy efficient homes built in the last twenty years. These homes may not allow enough air changes, keeping contaminated air in, and fresh air out.
”Ultraviolet radiation integrated with heating, ventilating, and air conditioning systems, shows the most promise as a widely applicable means of air disinfection.”
Filters are designed to trap particulates such as hair and dust. Microorganisms, by definition, are too small to be trapped by most filters and flow throughout the system undeterred.
Breathe Clean Air
Ultraviolet light purification has been proven effective in hospitals, schools, daycare centers, restaurants, and hotels. Ultraviolet radiation is effective in deactivating bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. The germicidal effects of UV light cause photochemical damage to DNA and RNA with microorganisms. The UVC Max36 is mounted inside the home’s heating and cooling duct work. The unit easily mounts to your existing system requiring only a standard 120V or 24V. Changing the bulb is a snap.
The UVC Max36 helps protect your most valuable asset – your family’s health. It kills bacteria, viruses, and mold with every pass through the system. The reduction of the microorganisms helps reduce symptoms of allergies, asthmas, and other respiratory illnesses.
Our UCV Max36 is installed in the main supply or return duct of any heating or cooling system. It emits powerful ultraviolet (UV) light which sterilizes and reduces airborne microorganisms as they pass through the system. It operates continuously to sanitize the air in your home 24 hours a day.
Facts About The Air In Your Home
- The EPA has identifies indoor air quality as one of the five most urgent environmental risks to public health.
- The National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine reports that exposure to indoor pollutants is a key contributor to the asthma problem of this nation.
- Today’s tighter, better insulated homes limit natural ventilation and trap indoor air contaminants inside.
