What is UV Air Filtration?

UV is an abbreviation for Ultra Violet, and UV Air Filtration reduces biological materials such as bacteria and viruses from the air. It does those by exposing them to UV light. A number of products are available to help make your home’s air safer through UV Purification.

Pros of a UV Air Filtration System

One of the biggest benefits of UV Air Filtration is the way it interacts with the air in your home to eliminate harmful bacteria. By focusing on the elimination of microscopic harmful bacteria, it allows the occupants of your home to live in a cleaner environment. While it does this, it’s working silently in the background so you won’t even know it’s running.

Cons of a UV Air Filtration System

The biggest negative to having UV protection in your home may be its cost, but you should still be able to find a model you can afford in your area. In addition to the cost, it’s important to remember that UV protection doesn’t do away with the need for a clean air filter and routine cleaning of your system, as well as the fact that UV bulbs have to be changed periodically. A UV system cannot remove allergens, cigarette smoke, and other fumes from your home.
