We are taking the following precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. All of our technicians have masks, glasses, latex gloves and shoe booties if they have to enter your home. Our technicians also have hand sanitizer and disinfectants that they use after every call.
If we are there to do maintenance and we don’t have to come inside your home to get to the equipment, we are asking homeowners to adjust the thermostat for us so we can do the system maintenance without entering the home. We will not be shaking hands and will keep our distance from customers.
UV Lights: Helping You Stay Healthy In Your Air-Conditioned Home
If you are looking for additional ways to improve the health inside your home, ultraviolet (UV) lights may be the right answer for you. UV lights work by targeting contaminants in your ductwork system and breaking down the components of each cell. When the particle breaks down, it is unable to reproduce.
UV lights are effective at removing bacteria, viruses and mold spores from your home. They break down the particles, preventing them from living and spreading through your home’s air. UV light systems are used effectively in hospitals to prevent the spread of diseases and infections, such as tuberculosis and other bacteria-based diseases. Studies by PLoS Medicine Today and the National Institution for Occupational and Safety Health show that the spread of tuberculosis is as much as 70 percent less when UV lights are used.
You can take advantage of this same technology in your home. Your HVAC contractor can install a UV light system directly into your existing ductwork. The lights then shine onto all particles that flow through your air system, purifying the air in your home significantly.
If you would like to learn more about UV lights and how they can benefit your Northwest Arkansas home, contact us at Paschal Heat, Air, Geothermal & Generators. We can discuss the benefits of a UV system, and see if installing one is right for your situation. In addition to UV questions, we also supply the Northwest Arkansas area with expert HVAC service, and look forward to helping you with all of your heating and cooling questions.
