One of the most overlooked aspects of home comfort is air quality. Particles like dust, pollen, and pet dander can irritate the skin, nose, and throat, plus they can aggravate conditions like asthma and allergies. It’s the microorganisms in the air, however, that can directly make you sick. Often too small to be captured by air filters, things like bacteria, viruses, and mold spores can be carried throughout the home by your HVAC system.
By adding a UV light air purifier to your home, you can render nearly all microorganisms harmless, protecting your health while improving your air quality. At Acosta Heating & Cooling, we can install the ideal UV light air purifier for your home, and we can keep it working properly with ongoing maintenance and repairs. Our UV air purifier services are available throughout Charlotte and the surrounding areas of North Carolina and South Carolina. With over 45 years of heating and air conditioning experience, you can count on us for fast service, professional results, and top-quality workmanship backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

How Does a UV Light Air Purifier 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 light air purifiers take advantage of the effects of ultraviolet light to clan and sterilize the air travelling through your HVAC system. Installed in the air ducts or the air handler, a UV air purifier 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 light can help to significantly improve your indoor air quality and make your home more comfortable.

We sell and install Healthy Climate® UV germicidal lights. We’ve received great feedback with the Healthy Climate® UV germicidal lights from our customers in the past plus they are manufactured by Lennox® so you know you’re getting a trustworthy product that will continue working for years to come.
How Do UV Lights Work?
If your home’s air is found to be a good candidate for UV light cleaning, we can install the UV light(s) in your ductwork usually within 1-2 hours. The germs in your home’s air are eliminated, thus making the air you breathe cleaner. There are no moving parts; your HVAC system takes care of circulating the air and the UV lights handle the rest.
Do UV Lights Produce Ozone?
A common concern amongst our customers with UV lights as an air cleaner is the production of ozone (a known lung irritant). Some common UV light germicidal cleaners on the market do produce ozone during their cleaning process. However, the Healthy Climate® germicidal lights we install do not produce ozone.
How Fast Do UV Lights Work?
The Healthy Climate® germicidal lights we install can reduce concentrations of airborne microbes by 50% in as little as 45 minutes.
