Fight Allergies in Dallas with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was first used to cure tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Dallas home’s environment cleaner.

A UV lamp can decontaminate HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Dallas home. It can wipe out mold, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms within 10 seconds of contact.

This can prompt relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid areas where mold and bacteria multiply. These lights may even help your HVAC equipment last longer, since they keep pieces clean.

Our Experts can suggest the equipment that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Levy & Son Service Experts is backed by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and work all the time. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out 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 effective UV light is in combating germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to wipe out 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold levels in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.

A germicidal system can also neutralize odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not practical against dust, which is best regulated by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you use a couple of preventive measures.

The sun lets off ultraviolet light, which has a lower wavelength than light you can detect. It’s responsible for causing painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can result in wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more concentrated, so it’s important to let Levy & Son Service Experts manage installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or permit bare skin touch it.
