When we talk about air filtration, most of our clients think of the white air filters in your vents that you’re supposed to swap out every few months. While these filters are great at stopping things like dust and pollen, they’re not actually cleaning your air.
While the filter is holding on to all of your duct’s contaminants, the bacteria, mold, and germs are all alive and well. In fact, towards the end of an air filter’s lifespan, the air in your home is actually going through more toxins than it would without a filter holding it all in place.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you should get rid of your filters altogether (unless you’d prefer to have all that dust on your countertops and floors). Instead, we recommend UV air purifiers for your home or business.
Residential UV air purifiers fit directly into your home’s ductwork with both a UV lamp and traditional air filter. The filter works to stop airborne particles and contaminants, while the ultraviolet light disinfects the air as it passes through to kill the germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, and other microorganisms living in your air.

How UV Light Air Purifiers Work
There are a wide variety of air purification and filtration systems on the market, but ultraviolet light air filters are the best at fully disinfecting your home’s air and preventing the spread of disease. So how does a little light do so much to sanitize your air?
UV light damages viruses, germs, and microbes at a cellular level to prevent them from reproducing or spreading. If the cells can’t reproduce, they can’t cause infections or spread across your home. All of the air in your home has to pass through this UV light, which means that it’s almost instantly disinfected before it ever leaves your home’s ducts.
Unlike chemical disinfectants, like bleach or chlorine, there’s no risk of accidentally contaminating your home with negative side-effects or fumes. UV light is perfectly safe to disinfect your air, water, and your home’s surfaces without the risk of contamination.
There’s no smell, no chemicals, and still no germs.
