Have you ever had an AC replacement or maintenance, and the technician recommended a UV light installed in the unit? They claim to prevent and kill the growth of mold and mildew and of course you don’t want this gunk in your space. But can these lighting systems really ease these concerns? These add-ons can sound like a gimmick but there is extensive scientific research that supports these claims. The National Center for Biotechnology states in many reports that UV lamps can kill and prevent contaminates that cause asthma, allergies, and other bacteria-related illnesses. These units also eliminate fungi, viruses, and pathogens. When a UV lighting system is properly installed along with proper filtration these health concerns and biological hazards can be eliminated in the ac unit and ductwork.
