Residential UV Lights
All residential heating and cooling systems either use coil sanitizing UV lights or air sanitizing UV lights. There are several different terms that you might hear regarding these lights: cleaning, sterilizing, purifying, etc. But, all HVAC UV lights fall into one of these two categories.
Air Sanitizing UV Lights
Air purifying UV lights are designed to kill bacteria and other particulates that are already in the air. These UV lights turn on every time your HVAC kicks on and they are housed within your home’s air ducts. These lights effectively clean the air as it passes through your HVAC system and before it enters your home.
Coil Sanitizing UV Lights
Coil purifying lights, on the other hand, focus on keeping your HVAC’s coils free of bacteria and mold. Most homeowners choose this kind of UV light. Coil cleaning UV lights are installed near your HVAC system’s indoor evaporator coil and run continuously.
Additional Benefits to Using UV Lights
In addition to improving your home’s IAQ, UV lights have many other benefits. They can lower your energy bills, make your air fresher, improve your home’s airflow, and increase your energy-efficiency.
