When visiting Richmond clients, our Air Express Air Conditioning & Heating technicians often get questions about improving indoor air quality. Whether it’s for your home or office, we always recommend that one of the highly effective and budget-friendly options is to add a UV light to your HVAC system. We can gladly provide this service to you.

The Connection Between UV Lights and Indoor Air Quality

UV or ultraviolet light can kill bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms that are present. They are all around us in the air, which means they inevitably end up in your HVAC system, and from there, in your lungs. When UV light is part of the HVAC setup and destroys these harmful microorganisms, the air you breathe will be cleaner and safer for you and your family.

Reduce Allergies, Asthma Symptoms, and Bad Smells

We’ve already discussed how UV light safely and effectively kills microorganisms that are frequently also allergens. It will make your home a healthier and more comfortable environment for those dealing with allergies or asthma. Because allergens and bacteria tend to have unpleasant odors, removing them will also make your indoor air smell fresher. There’s no need for artificial air fresheners to mask unpleasant scents when the atmosphere is clean.

Are You Ready for Some Peace of Mind?

Installing a UV light in your HVAC system can give you peace of mind from knowing you’re taking steps to ensure your family’s health and safety. With concerns about the spread of viruses and other illnesses constantly in the news, having a UV light in your HVAC system is a fantastic way of creating a sanitary and hygienic indoor environment.

Let us do the heavy lifting! We routinely install UV lights for HVAC systems. Besides that, we also help Richmond residents and companies with furnace and AC installations and repairs, ductwork cleaning, HVAC tune-ups, and so much more.
