UV Air Purifier Systems and Service in Santa Fe, NM

Glorieta Creek Mechanical LLC - UV Air Purifiers

Among the many different types of airborne pollutants that can develop inside a home, the most unpleasant to think about are organic ones: molds, mildew, viruses, bacteria, etc. Unfortunately, any home can suffer from these hazardous contaminants, and when moisture starts to collect inside the HVAC system and along the coils of an air conditioner, it creates a breeding ground for unhealthy molds and harmful microorganisms.

If the air quality in your house has suffered because of bacteria and other organic pollutants, you’ll need to take special steps to eliminate the problem. The best method available to you is to call Glorieta Creek Mechanical LLC and ask about installation of UV air purifiers. These devices will rid your HVAC system as well as your home of mold and airborne bacteria—without leaving chemicals inside the ducts. We also provide repairs and replacements for UV air purifiers. Talk to our indoor air quality specialists today in Santa Fe to schedule an appointment.

How UV Germicidal Lights Destroy Mold, Bacteria, Viruses, and More

The principle behind UV air purifiers is not complicated: they use ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms and other unwanted organic intruders. UV radiation disrupts cellular function, stripping away the nuclei and either killing the cell or making it inert. Although ultraviolet radiation can also be harmful for humans, the lamps used in these air purifiers do not produce UV levels strong enough to endanger anyone in a household. The lights are also installed and shielded so they are hidden from sight. The usual location for the UV lamps is next to the evaporator coil on the air conditioner, downstream from it (the cold air side). The ultraviolet rays shine on both the coil to prevent mold from developing along it, and on the condensate pan beneath, which is another source of mold and bacteria.

The Advantages of Installing a UV Air Purifier

When a UV air purifier is properly installed and maintained, it will eliminate up to 99.9% of all mold spores in the HVAC system, and 87% of airborne bacteria—all without placing any chemicals or ozone into the air that can negatively affect indoor air quality. This means a much healthier household, particularly for people with respiratory issues such as allergies and asthma. The germicidal lights will also prevent mold from starting to develop on the air conditioner, which is one of the major sources for mold growth in a home. A UV air purifier will not create any strain against air flow that may lead in an inefficient heating and air conditioning system.
