Fight Allergies in Kitchener with a UV Germicidal Light

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

A UV lamp can disinfect HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your Kitchener home. It can wipe out mold, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens 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 system work longer, since they keep pieces clean.

Our Experts can recommend the unit that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts is supported 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 continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as little as 10 seconds, this potent light stops contaminants from growing throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how effective UV light is in battling 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 amounts in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.

A germicidal system can also take care of scents and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not practical against dust, which is best managed by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is not dangerous as long as you take some preventive measures.

The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can detect. It’s behind causing painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can lead to wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is stronger, so it’s important to let Boehmers/Cronin Emery Service Experts manage installation and maintenance. You should never look straight into the light or allow bare skin touch it.
