According to the EPA, indoor air pollution is often FIVE times worse than outside air. This may cause significant health risks from airborne contaminants such as mold, bacteria and odor-causing, potentially toxic, VOC’s.
These days we are all facing dangerous viruses and the scariest part is that we do not know anything about them. We do not have the cure, and we don’t even know how they get passed.
APCO products feature a unique combination of UV-C light and activated carbon which achieves unmatched microbial and odor reduction (without producing any harmful ozone).
Airborne contaminants can be divided roughly into thirds. Conventional filtration is effective against particulates, like dust, but has no effect on the other two thirds. APCO is proven to safely reduce both VOCs and biological contaminants inside the air system and throughout the home.
The APCO UV Lights have not been tested against the virus that has put so many people in danger right now as you are reading this article. However, based on the studies and research done so far, we know that UV Lights in general are a great proactive percussion measure against bacteria, viruses, mold and much more. We cannot cure the virus, but we strongly believe that the UV Lights are a great thing to have these days.
We cannot eliminate the risks, but we can take preventative steps and measures to try our best to minimize and reduce the risks. With APCO UV Lights you are taking one extra step to decrease the chances of you or anyone in your family getting sick, and spreading bacteria around the house. The UV Lights will make the air in your home significantly cleaner, and reduce the risk of passing airborne diseases.
UV Lights for HVAC - if there was ever a good time to try these out, it is now. We know one thing for sure, they definitely do not cause any harm, so by getting them we are not gonna make it worse, but we don’t want to be saying in the near future something like “I wish I would have gotten it!” That I wish I would have, is a painful thing to say when it becomes too late.
Who would benefit from UV Lights for HVAC the most
People suffering from
- weak immune system
With APCO UV Lights installed in your house, you can feel safe within the comfort of your home.
Fresh-Aire UV has been receiving inquiries regarding how effective UV disinfection systems are against Coronavirus. We believe the best approach is to be as transparent as possible and to explain the fundamentals and variables that play a factor in inactivating Coronavirus or any other pathogen with UVC germicidal technologies.
Fresh-Aire UV systems are tested and validated against bacteria, viruses, mold & fungus.
Fresh-Aire UV systems have been tested to achieve up to a 99.999996% reduction on microorganisms. There are a number of factors that need to be addressed in order to determine efficiency, these include but not limited to the application such as surface or air disinfection, air velocity & temperature, recirculation rates and dwell time as well as the specific biological target. Fresh-Aire UV systems are installed in the HVAC unit and/or ductwork and are designed to disinfect the air as it circulates through the ventilation system. UV dosage for log reduction are measured in several ways including microwatts per second/centimetres2 (μWs/cm2).
A very large percentage of microorganisms have an already defined microwatt dose for UVC inactivation including Coronavirus. UV disinfection has been employed for decades in water treatment; these microwatt values have been used for reference to gauge UVC efficiency against a large cross-section of microorganisms. It is impossible for any manufacturer to test systems against every biological target.
Fresh-Aire UV systems have not been tested against Coronavirus. Fresh-Aire UV systems have been tested against biological targets that require greater dosage for Inactivation. UV disinfection systems for HVAC are the ideal proactive measure to complement filtration, addressing microorganisms that are so small, that filters are mostly ineffective (read more about air comfort solutions). The UV systems have also been shown to reduce problematic molds and pathogens that are found within the
