It’s well known that today’s energy efficiency standards and modern building advancements have come at the expense of indoor air quality, sealing and trapping pollution inside, then delivering it into rooms through heating and cooling equipment duct work. The Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental health risks and states “The best way to address this risk is to control or eliminate the sources of pollution….”
To help combat these problems, activTek UV Germicidal Lamps effectively and conveniently treat the air being circulated by HVAC systems as it passes through the ducts and out in the indoor environment, taking the solution to the source.
Mold and bacteria can easily grow on air conditioning coils as a result of normal condensation that takes place during the cooling process. A UV Germicidal Lamp is designed to kill that mold and bacteria by breaking down its DNA, using a technology that has been trusted for over 60 years to kill microorganisms in water purification, the food processing industries, hospital operating rooms and more. By adding an activTek UV Lamp to your home comfort system, you reduce your family’s risk of allergic reactions and illnesses as well as eliminate the foul odors associated with such growth on the coil.
Benefits of UV Germicidal Lamps:
- Health: ActivePure® technology reduces contaminants inside the duct and on surfaces as it is carried through the system and into living spaces.
- Comfort: ActivePure® technology actively neutralizes odors and visibly reduces smoke in the air. Wouldn’t it be great to enjoy a home free of odors that are caused by the growth of mold and mildew in your heating and cooling system?
- Equipment Protection: The accumulation of mold and mildew in your heating and cooling system makes it work harder and longer. This can lead to untimely repairs as well as the need to replace your system long before you should have to.
- Low Maintenance: The activTek UV Lamp is easily installed, requires no cleaning, comes with a UV bulb monitoring indicator, and can cover from 500-10,000 square feet (depending upon the model).
