Serious about Air Quality?
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, disinfecting commercial buildings, schools, and hospitals is more important than ever. Along with sanitizing surfaces and equipment, you should also give thought to your HVAC system. Contaminants within units will be dispersed around your building when equipment is used, which can impact the health and comfort of occupants. UVC air disinfection is an advanced method of cleansing the environment by reducing airborne contaminants.
UVC is a form of ultra-violet light that has exceptional disinfecting properties. It’s effective against a wide range of common contaminants, including mold, bacteria, and micro-organisms. UVC lights can be installed in proximity to HVAC coils or within air ducts. Here are a few reasons to consider adding one to your HVAC system.
How Can UVC Disinfection Benefit Your Building?
1. Improved Indoor Air Quality
Allergens like mold, pollen, and dust create some bothersome symptoms in susceptible individuals. Your staff and customers may experience sneezing, congestion, itchy eyes, rashes, and other symptoms when exposed to these contaminants regularly. Boosting indoor air quality reduces airborne pollutants for a healthier environment. It can also positively impact productivity, since healthy employees are less likely to miss work due to allergy symptoms.
2. Enhanced Energy Efficiency
When dirt and contaminants build up on evaporator coils, HVAC equipment functionality is affected. With air conditioning, dirty coils are less likely to remove warmth from the air effectively. As a result, equipment must work harder to cool your building in a reasonable way. With UVC air disinfection, coils will remain free of debris for optimum function. Along with decreased wear on your unit, improved efficiency will also ensure a more comfortable environment.
3. Greater Cost-Savings
When HVAC equipment operates more efficiently, you save money on repairs caused by wear. You also experience an increased lifespan, which keeps you from purchasing a new system before it’s necessary. Reduced energy costs are another benefit offered by enhanced efficiency. The better equipment functions, the less expensive it will be to run.
