Almost everyone is concerned with preventing Covid-19 in their home. There is a great deal not yet know about the virus. However, it was recently announced that the UV component of sunlight is effective in killing it. In addition, the medical field is increasingly using UV light to sterilize PPEs (personal protective equipment).  Homeowners are a growing group who are installing UV systems in their homes heating and air conditioning system.

No air filtration system can fully eliminate Covid-19 from your home. A safer home relies on the addition of proper surface cleaning and prevention measures. A UV filter can only eliminate air contaminates that pass through the heating and air conditioning system. It is most effective in a stationary environment where sufficient time of exposure to the virus can occur. Such as with the evaporator coil, or with a specially designed system. It is necessary to say that while UV light can kill viruses, it can also cause damage to you. This is why it is shield inside the HVAC system.

How Indoor Air Quality In Arlington TX Works

A UV air treatment system uses ultraviolet (UV) light to destroy a broad range of pathogens and pollutants. Capable of killing some viruses, including corona viruses, it is successful by killing or disrupting their DNA. This results in their inability to perform vital cellular functions resulting in elimination. When an HVAC system is equipped with a HEPA filter its effectiveness against indoor air pollution is increased.

Cleaner air is beneficial to the health of your family. This is especially true if a family member has asthma, allergies or chronic lung disease. Advanced filtration improves your home’s indoor air quality. 99.97% of all airborne particulates are captured by a HEPA filter that is installed in a UV air treatment system. Particulates as small as 0.3 microns. This includes a broad number of some microscopic pollutants.  These are dust particles, dust mites, mold spores, pet dander, tobacco smoke, pollen, bacteria, VOCs and some viruses.

HEPA filters are typically used in hospitals, labs, and in homes that want cleaner air. They require routine replacement for the highest performance. The 0.3-micron filtration in HEPA filters are not designed to trap the Covid-19 virus. It provides the cleanest air possible for respiratory support and may assist in reducing the virus if present. For comparison, consider the P95 respirators worn by our front-line caregivers of Covid patients.

High quality air filters such as a HEPA filter, also provide the benefit of maintaining a cleaner HVAC system. This in turn, reduces the need for heating and air conditioning repair.

It will depend on your HVAC system with whether it is compatible with a HEPA filter. HEPA filtration is dense and use in a system not designed for it may result in the need for HVAC repair.
