UV Lights Services in Lake City & Gainesville, FL

Every homeowner seeks to fill every room of the house with clean, fresh air. Because of microscopic allergens and other contaminants that travel through the ducts in your HVAC system, that is not going to happen. The trick, then, is to eliminate the airborne irritants that bother you and your family members.

Each person's level of sensitivity to mold spores, dust mites, bacteria and other allergens will vary on a case-to-case basis. People who are highly sensitive to such irritants must take more safeguards to protect themselves.

A good step in that direction is to request UV lights services from the certified technicians at Glenn I. Jones Home Services. Our proven professionals understand the value of ultraviolet (UV) lights treatment in regard to removing biological contaminants from your home in the Greater Gainesville & Lake City, Florida area.

Multiple studies have shown that short-wavelength UV-C light inactivates viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew and other fungi by breaking down their DNA or RNA. This germicidal irradiation method also prevents secondary allergies related to airborne allergens.

It does so, in part, by keeping the indoor coil of your HVAC free from fungal growth by destroying nucleic acids in microorganisms. The UV-C light disrupts their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions and causing them to die. That is essential because the coil stays wet for several months during the year and microorganisms, including mold, typically thrive in a wet environment.

Two Types of UV Lights

There are two different types of UV lights that can improve your indoor air quality. The first is the UV-C light that shines on the indoor coil of your HVAC, killing mold and other microorganisms prone to thriving in a dark, damp environment. Unless killed by the UV-C light, these organisms are especially active during high humidity months, which are prevalent in Florida. Depending on the manufacturer, some UV-C lights come with guarantees that last up to 10 years. The only maintenance involves changing the light bulb, which can last up to two years. 

The second type of UV light used in homes is for air purification. Designed to assist individuals with serious allergies or asthma, these lights are created to purify your indoor air in a comprehensive manner. They consist of a media filter dipped in charcoal and an integrated UV lamp within the filtration apparatus. The filtration system with a UV light includes a powerful, MERV 16 filter that is designed to provide relief to individuals who are unusually sensitive to biological contaminants.
