As summer fades into fall, there’s always one day when the weather is finally cold enough to switch the HVAC system from cooling to heating. In those first few moments of using your heating, you’ll get a waft of something burning. In fact, if you’re not home alone, you’ll undoubtedly have someone suspicious that something is on fire.
Where does that smell come from? You are experiencing the build-up of dust and other small particles that have accumulated in your system during the months that the heating system was not in use. Ultraviolet light does the job of eliminating those. The use of UV light in your Beech Grove home can significantly reduce the occurrence of this phenomenon.
The history of UV lights is surprisingly quite long. As early as 1903, UV lights were used in the medical field to treat skin infections. Later, UV lights were utilized to reveal contaminants and sterilize equipment in hospitals, grocery stores, and office buildings. They have a proven history of neutralizing particles associated with pollutants such as the Norwalk virus or bacteria such as E. coli.
Benefits of HVAC UV Lights
This may seem like a futuristic, unnecessary addition to an HVAC system. But the benefits of UV lights in the HVAC system are plenty and go beyond eliminating that burning smell associated with the first day of fall-like weather. Here are the practical benefits of incorporating UV lights into your HVAC system.
Many particles can be typically found within the HVAC that are detrimental to those living in residence. Particles such as dust, mold spores, and other minuscule air-based contaminants can be circulated within the system and pushed into the breathable air space by the HVAC system. Those contaminants degrade the quality of the indoor air. For those who live with compromised health, allergies or asthma issues, or suppressed immune systems, those particles can become a significant health concern. The installation of a UV light in your Beech Grove home can reduce or eliminate those negative health influences.
The build-up of particles within the system accumulates to the point of reduced circulation. As those avenues of airflow become smaller, the system is forced to work harder to push the air through the smaller conduits. When this happens, you end up with a double whammy blow to efficiency. The HVAC system will exhaust itself, reducing the unit’s overall life expectancy and likely incurring more frequent repairs and driving up the energy costs of the home.
Indoor Air Quality
If you go out and about in Beech Grove, there may be areas where you can perceive and logically assume that the air quality is not great. But air quality is one area where you might assume all is well if there’s no obvious problem. That is not necessarily true. Even air that is not noticeably impacted by pollutants can still contain contaminants. The UV light installation will improve the air quality by killing off those diminutive particles you are breathing in without even knowing it.
Additionally, some choices of how a home is used inadvertently result in odor molecules. These molecules derived from pets or other olfactory home usages such as smoking will also be eliminated. You may have become nose-blind to these lingering odors but visitors to your home will surely notice. The UV lights will also neutralize these molecules resulting in a fresher overall smell.
