You may have heard about UV Lights (black lights) for your furnace. But what do UV Lights do for your home’s indoor air quality?

First, a quick explanation as to how UV Lights work. UV Lights are installed in the furnace, situated in front of the filters. As the microorganisms in your home (such as viruses and bacteria) go across the light installed in the furnace, the UV rays help keep them all from reproducing and therefore multiplying. The filter is then designed to filter out the microorganisms, and help keep them from circulating back into your home’s air. Keep in mind that UV Lights and filters won’t completely keep everything out of the air, but it will make an impact for your home.

Here are a couple of reasons that you may want to consider adding a UV Light to your home system:

· A UV Light will dramatically increase the indoor air quality of any home, and therefore increase the health of everyone in your family, especially those with allergies and asthma.

· Heading into the winter months, adding a UV Light will help decrease the spread of viruses and other germs throughout your home. With cold and flu season upon us, you can help your family have a much healthier winter.
