Every Austin homeowner knows that spring and summer months can bring about super humid or “muggy” air, which is the ideal situation for mold spores, bacteria, mildew and other nasty things to infiltrate your indoor air. Ironically, because the air is so muggy it’s a rare occasion that we raise our windows or open doors to let fresh air circulate or allow these unwanted invaders to escape. So, how to enjoy cleaner air during warmer months in central Texas? A UV (Ultra Violet) air purifier may be just the solution.

UV lights installed in the ducts can eradicate those germs and bacteria that make their way into your home. The ductwork is what delivers conditioned (hot or cold) air to your home depending on the season, so it’s the ideal place to have ultraviolet light installed. While UV light is what gives us that beautiful tan (or unsightly and painful sunburn) in summer months, it kills bacteria, germs, mold spores and other pollutants so you enjoy cleaner, healthier indoor air.

When your HVAC system runs during the summer or winter season, air is circulated through the heat and air system and finally into the ducts before being delivered to the indoors via your air vents or registers. It’s during the process that the air is “scrubbed” to improve indoor air quality, however the installation of UV lights makes the air even healthier by killing all the bacteria, mold spores and other germs as these unhealthy pollutants try to pass by in the air on its way into your home. After installation, the only cost you’ll face is having the light bulbs replaced periodically!

Your family deserves the cleanest, healthiest air possible. It’s already a known fact that indoor air is far more polluted than outdoor air, so you want to do everything possible to remove the pollution and clean the air inside your home.
