Ultra Violet Lighting- Purify Your Air

calgary furnace ultra violet lights

Most of us take our health for granted. Air quality easily ranks as one of the most influential factors on our health. UV Air Purifiers kill the bacteria and viruses that is brought in from the outside, ensuring the air you breath inside is clean. The City of Calgary uses similar technology to treat our water. This same light is applied in the home.

Indoor Air Pollution Is A Serious Threat

Pollen, mold, allergens, and bacteria are just a few of the microbial hazards that spread through the air. Stopping these pollutants at the heart of your home, the furnace, insures your home is defended.

The US Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) & the World Health Organization(WHO) are both warning the public about how serious this issue has become:

"...our indoor environment is two to five times more toxic than our outdoor environment,…” ~ EPA

“... The WHO have concluded that 80% of all cancers are attributed to environmental (i.e. Air Pollution, Food, Water, etc.) rather than genetic factors, including exposure to carcinogenic chemicals, many of which are found in household cleaning products.”

“... almost 3% of the global burden of disease is due to indoor air pollution.” ~ WHO

Not All Furnace Air Purifiers Are The Same

The portable units are basically electric dust filters and only cover one room. Adding a whole home high output UV germicidal lamp in your furnace works by breaking down the electron bonds of an organic molecule.

This intense light penetrates airborne microorganism, causing their cellular makeup to be destroyed, killing them or rendering them harmless and/or prevents them from reproducing.

*Note:If you have central air conditioning a UV air purifier can be the perfect match in your home. Condensation from your a/c coils can increase the bacteria and mold. A UV lamp will kill these.

The numbers are impressive!

• Reduce potential illness at an alarming rate

• UV air purifiers have a 93% viral and bacterial eradication efficiency.

• Help your home smell fresh

• UV air purifiers have up to 88% odor removal rate.

• UV air purifiers neutralize harmful fumes

• By eliminating 80% of chemical vapors such as ozone.

Breathe easier knowing you're leaving the pollutants outside!
