How UV Air Purifiers Work to Create a Healthier Home

If you’re looking to improve the indoor air quality of your home, a whole-house air purifier is the way to go. Yes, you can purchase higher quality air filters for your HVAC system or even invest in a small portable air purifier, but neither of these solutions can match the results of a whole-house solution.

Our team would love to help your family with a UV air purifier in Portland, OR. You can keep reading to learn more about how a UV air purifier works and how it would be set up in your home. Then you can give our team a call to schedule your appointment and take a step toward healthy indoor air quality. 

How a UV Air Purifier Works

Many air purifiers use heavy duty filters to capture particles and prevent them from passing through. These filters have many layers and tightly woven fibers to prevent even the smallest particles from passing through. Air purifiers with filters work great, but UV air purifiers are a step above.

A UV air purifier neutralizes all of the particles that pass under the light. These models get installed inside of your existing HVAC system and are positioned so that all air has to pass by before blowing back out into your home. Even the most microscopic particles are neutralized with a UV light, leaving your air more than 99% clean.

UV Air Purifier Benefits

When you think about maintaining clean air inside of your home, you probably think about germs, bacteria, and viruses. But a UV air purifier also helps to neutralize all sorts of other harmful particles. These include:

  • Bathroom and pet odors
  • Pollution
  • Allergens
  • Household cleaners in chemicals
  • Mold and mildew spores

While an air purifier can help to improve your family’s health, it can also reduce allergy symptoms and prevent mold and mildew growth around your home. Unlike a portable model, a whole-house air purifier is out of sight and out-of-the-way. You don’t have to unplug it and move it around or worry about it being in the way. 

Clean air can help you breathe easier and even improve your sleep. If you’re struggling to go to sleep or stay asleep during the night, your indoor air quality could be to blame. If your body is fighting off harmful particles like bacteria and allergens, you’re less likely to get a restful night’s sleep.

Maintenance Expectations

Whole-house models are especially wonderful because they work around the clock to maintain a high level of cleanliness for your home’s air. When first installed, a UV air purifier can take half of a day or so for all of the air in your home to cycle through and pass under the UV light. 

After that, the air in your home maintains a high level of quality. The only maintenance needed is changing out the bulb around once per year. Our team can complete this task as part of regular HVAC maintenance when we visit your home for service.
