You depend on your HVAC system to filter out microbes and other airborne nasties. But dirty indoor cooling coils can actually allow them into your home if left uncleaned. Having your A/C coils washed regularly is still a good idea. UV Germicidal Lights work with your HVAC system to prevent microbes from growing on your A/C coils, keeping these pathogens from entering your home and potentially making you sick.
By adding UV Germicidal Lights to your home, you can render nearly all microorganisms harmless, protecting your health while improving your air quality. At Acosta Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we can install the ideal UV light system for your home, and we can keep it working properly with ongoing maintenance and repairs. Our UV light systems are available throughout Charlotte and the surrounding areas of North Carolina and South Carolina.

How Does a UV Germicidal Light Work?
Ultraviolet light is invisible to humans, but it is a component of natural sunlight. It is responsible for the sunburn you may receive if you spend too long in the sun unprotected, and just as it can cause damage to human skin cells, it can render most microorganisms harmless or kill them outright by damaging their DNA.
UV Germicidal Lights take advantage of the effects of ultraviolet light to clean and sterilize the air traveling through your HVAC system. Installed in the air ducts or the air handler, it exposes all air passing through the HVAC system to UV light, killing microorganisms or rendering them incapable of reproducing. Combined with your air filter, the UV germicidal light can help to significantly improve your indoor air quality and make your home more comfortable.
