An ultraviolet germicidal lamp is a special type of lamp which produces ultraviolet (UVC) light. This short-wave ultraviolet light disrupts DNA base pairing causing formation of pyrimidine dimer and leads to the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. Hospitals employ them to kill the tiniest of microbes on their equipment. We can apply this technology to your home. UV light can go where conventional cleaning methods can’t. The rays kill mold, bacteria and other harmful living organisms that can thrive in your moist, dark and dirty air ducts.
Ultraviolet technology is a non-chemical approach to disinfection. In this method of disinfection, nothing is added which makes this process simple, inexpensive and requires very low maintenance. Ultraviolet purifiers utilize germicidal lamps that are designed and calculated to produce a certain dosage of ultraviolet (usually at least 16,000 microwatt seconds per square centimeter but many units actually have a much higher dosage.) The principle of design is based on a product of time and intensity – you must have a certain amount of both for a successful design.
