Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

How UV Lights Fight For Your Home's Indoor Air Quality

Ultraviolet (UV) lights are a great germicidal complement to your home’s air system.  They will make a noticeable improvement to your indoor air quality without making a huge dent in your pocketbook.  

UV lights work by emitting a low level of ultraviolet radiation in your air system that immediately kills dangerous microorganisms.  Every bit of air that circulates through will be exposed, which makes this strategy highly efficient.  The radiation is harmless to you but protects you and your family from dangerous contaminants such as viruses, bacteria and fungi.

You can harness the power of UV lights by having an HVAC professional install a UV lamp in your air system.  Killing off dangerous germs makes your air healthier and safer to breathe.  

Because of UV lights’ efficiency, hospitals frequently incorporate them into their own air systems to protect patients.  Fortunately, UV lamps are simple enough instruments that they are affordable for anyone who wants to utilize them in their home’s air system.  

It is important to recognize the true role of ultraviolet lights.  They are not meant to rid your air of non-living pollutants such as dust and pollen.  But when UV lamps are used alongside high-efficiency air filters, you will be able to deliver the highest air quality possible.  

If you need to improve your home’s indoor air quality, UV lights are an excellent tool for the job.  Contact Paschal Heat, Air & Geothermal for more information about getting a UV lamp installed in your home’s air system.  We proudly serve residents of Northwest Arkansas.
