Recently, the CDC released a report stating that this winter has been one of the worst flu seasons in recent history. So is there anything you can do in your home, especially once your family has been sick with the flu? At Sensible Heating & Cooling, we do have a solution for you – UV Lights. So what are UV Lights, and how much will they cost you? This blog will answer some of these questions for you.

· How Do They Work? UV Lights are installed onto your furnace, and in laymen’s terms, they prevent bacteria from growing and spreading throughout the air ducts of your home. Once viruses and colds enter your home, they are kept from spreading and multiplying throughout the home.

· What is the Cost? UV Lights cost between $600 and $1200 installed.

· Do They Work? Many people who have installed them into their homes notice a difference in their health. If people in your home have asthma or allergies, they will most likely notice the biggest difference.

· Maintenance: Maintenance is very critical with UV lights, because they will lose their potency after a year. Just keep in mind that you will need to replace the bulbs each fall to make sure you are getting the maximum benefit each winter.
