MORE THAN 99.9% AIRBORNE CORONAVIRUSES KILLED USING UV LIGHT
Dated: September 5 2020
Most of us are taking reasonable precautions in public places, wearing masks, and keeping our distance from others, but how much do we consider the air continuously circulating around our homes via the HVAC / air conditioning system?. Home air conditioning systems are potential breeding grounds for germs, bacteria, mold, and other pathogens, including Coronaviruses.
Following a discussion with my contractor on the subject, I decided to write this blog to spread the word about a simple and quite inexpensive solution, Ultraviolet light.
Columbia University Medical Center explains the science in some detail and claimes that “More than 99.9% of seasonal coronaviruses present in airborne droplets were killed when exposed to a particular wavelength of ultraviolet light that is safe to use around humans”. Here is a link to the article:
UV scrubbing devices are added to existing air conditioners, these systems consist of a high-intensity UV light source that is positioned in the circulating airflow duct of your system. Apparently the intense UV radiation effectively kills the pathogens which are carried in the recirculating airflow.
In my opinion, this is something worthy of consideration, particularly if you suffer from underlying conditions or are concerned about air quality within your home. I am informed by my contractor Interstate Mechanical, there is a high demand to install these devices at present. Apparently, systems range from $300 to $950 fully installed. My contact at Interstate is Moses, his contact details are (754) 264-6733 email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
