Ultraviolet light was originally used to treat tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your North America home’s environment healthier. A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and improve the air quality in your home. It can wipe out mold, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms within 10 seconds of contact.
This can bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid locations where mold and bacteria prosper. These lights may even help your HVAC system run longer, since they keep pieces clean.
