Fight Allergies in Oklahoma City with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was originally used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Oklahoma City home’s environment healthier.
A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Oklahoma City home. It can wipe out mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.
This can bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid locations where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC equipment work longer, since they keep components clean.
Our Experts can suggest the equipment that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Gordon's Service Experts is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*
How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are placed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work all the time. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to eliminate the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as fast as 10 seconds, this potent light halts contaminants from multiplying throughout your HVAC system and home.
Two studies have shown how practical UV light is in battling germs and mold.
In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to take care of 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.
In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold amounts in a commercial office building’s HVAC unit.
A germicidal system can also wipe out odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not effective against dust, which is best managed by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is harmless as long as you follow a couple of precautions.
The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can detect. It’s responsible for leading to painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can cause wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.
The type of light used in a germicidal system is more concentrated, so it’s important to let Gordon's Service Experts handle installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or permit bare skin to come into contact with it.
