Did you know? We only spend 10% of our lives outdoors. Just imagine what the stats are like nowadays as we stay home to stop the spread of COVID-19.

We often think that it is safer indoors than it is outdoors. While that can be true in some perspective it is generally not the case when it comes to air pollution. What? Did we say air pollution? Yes, we did, the concept of air pollution is often, if not always, associated with the outdoors – bushfires, exhaust pipes, car emissions etc. But this does not mean Indoor Air Pollution is imaginary, many are not concerned about this because we cannot see it.

All our technicians’ homes are equipped with UV light within in their air conditioning system. Why? Because they know what a typical home is breathing in. Let me tell you it is not good. Read more about indoor air quality here.

 

What Is UV Light?

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a range of light frequencies that are mostly invisible to the human eye. The light can kill germs with its UV-C band by penetrating the cell walls of microorganisms and scramble their DNA.

For over centuries scientists have known of germ-killing properties of ultraviolet light. UV light is most commonly used in water treatment facilities, food industries and in hospitals.

Fun fact: majority of homes in the US have already heard and installed UV lights in their air conditioning systems years ago! It is practically common knowledge! We are confused why Australia has not picked up on this in 2020.

How does UV provide a solution to Indoor Air Quality?

The typical residential air conditioning system should have an excellent filter to capture dirt, dust and pollen. However, installing a UV light will reduce and eliminate a broader range of allergens and pathogenetic microbes that circulate in your indoor air.

UV lights reduces and eliminates:

  • DNA-based airborne contaminants
  • Preventing allergies
  • Asthma attacks
  • Sickness
  • Other respiratory conditions

All air conditioning systems are prone to internal mould growth and microbial contamination. The UV Light is designed to sterilize surfaces while having no impact on the air conditioning’s plastic material. The UV light will also clean the air passing through the machine to make sure the air circulating in your home is clean.

How does it work?

  • UV light is installed inside the air conditioning system of your home or office 2
  • As air passes through the air conditioning, it continuously kills airborne contaminants 3
  • The UV light continuously sterilizes the air conditioning’s surface while having no impact on any plastic materials 4
  • The UV light prevents mould colonisation, purifies and improves indoor air quality
