4 Air Quality Benefits of Blue UV Light

Mar 31, 2020

Blue UV light has been used to eradicate bacteria for a little over half a century now. Known as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI,) UV light has been harnessed for a variety of sterilization purposes. One of the more mundane uses of UV light is to clean your home’s air supply. By installing a UV light in your HVAC, you can greatly cut down on the amount of contaminants in your home.


Here are four ways blue UV light can help your home’s air quality:


Improved airflow

Ultraviolet-C (UVC) technology has seen usage since the mid-1990s. Back then, UV lamps saw frequent usage as a means to improve a home’s air quality. Nowadays, we can install them inside HVAC units to kill germs that move through the system. This method also carries the benefit of helping avoid exposure to the UV light, which can cause skin and eye conditions. By using UVC, you can prevent microbial growth in various parts of your HVAC system.


Increased energy efficiency

Installing a blue UV light in your HVAC can save around 35% off of your energy bill. The light does this by easing the HVAC’s workload and making it more effective. Of course, HVACs can also become less efficient because of the buildup of dust and other contaminants inside it. Giving your HVAC annual maintenance and cleaning is important in keeping it working effectively.


Disease prevention

Your HVAC’s job is to circulate air throughout your home, but disease can also spread by using the HVAC, as well. Since UV lighting prevents the buildup of organic contaminants on interior HVAC structures, UV lights can do a lot to prevent the spread of disease.



Adding a UV light to your system is a way of helping it keep itself clean. This makes them very cost-efficient for modern homeowners. However, you’ll want to contact one of our professional technicians before getting them installed. There are a variety of factors that go into the light’s effectiveness, such as the number and intensity of the lights, your home’s temperature and humidity, and how reflective the surrounding surfaces are.
