There are three main types of indoor air pollution—particles and allergens, germs and infectious agents, and gases and odors. All of these can be hazardous to your health. PristineAir’s Germicidal UVC Lamp is designed to destroy the living germs and infectious agents in your home’s air.
For Your Health
Ever heard the saying “sunlight is the best disinfectant”? Well, it isn’t just a figure of speech! Scientists have known since the 1800s that sunlight could kill germs. Today, we know that it’s the ultraviolet rays in sunshine that can kill and inhibit the growth of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms.
The PristineAir Germicidal UVC Lamp uses that same kind of ultraviolet light to kill off living microorganisms on surfaces inside your HVAC system as well as in the air passing through that system. That includes bacteria, viruses (including the flu virus), mold, and even pollen.
Destroying these microorganisms can have big benefits for both your HVAC system and your health. Mold and bacteria growing inside of an HVAC can damage the coils and shorten the lifespan of the system. It can also cause very bad odors, a situation we call “dirty sock syndrome,” because that’s what it smells like!
Killing off viruses and other microorganisms in your home’s air can help prevent the spread of the common cold, flu, and other illnesses. Plus, it can help reduce allergy symptoms caused by mold spores and pollen.
Symptoms of Indoor Mold
- sore throat
- trigger or worsen symptoms in people with asthma.
The PristineAir Germicidal UVC Lamp uses a high-output UVC lamp that’s 3.3 times stronger than standard UVC lamps, giving it even more germ-destroying power. It has low maintenance requirements and is engineered to last, keeping your home’s air and your HVAC system cleaner and healthier for years to come.
