Are UV Air Purifiers Worth It?

April 15, 2020

High-quality UV air purifiers reduce airborne pathogens and other contaminants significantly. In fact, they can assist you in keeping your indoor air quality as clean as possible. If you or someone you live with has lung disease, asthma, allergies, or a compromised immune system, UV air purification can help to protect that person from agents of disease. This equipment will significantly reduce the presence of viruses, bacteria, and fungal spores. In addition, a Lennox UV air purifier can mitigate chemical vapours that irritate the respiratory system.

How Do UV Air Purifiers Work?

UV stands for ultraviolet, and a UV air purifier contains a light bulb that produces ultraviolet light. This portion of the light spectrum attacks the physical bodies of bacteria, viruses, and fungal spores to render them harmless. Inside a UV air purifier, your air handling system passes indoor air through the UV lighted chamber where disinfection takes place.
