Learn How A UV Air Cleaner
Can Reduce The Spread of Cold & Flus
The air in your home can be full of pollutants that can aggravate allergies and contribute to illness. Having Pittsburgh’s Best Plumbing, Heating & Air install a UV air purifier in your HVAC system can reduce the bacteria, mold and other harmful contaminants found in your air.
When your home is sealed to prevent the warm and cool air generated by the HVAC from escaping, it can also seal in pollutants that have nowhere to go except into the living areas of your home. A UV air purifier can cleanse the air before it is circulated into your home.
How It Works
A UV air purifier is different from other air quality solutions because it uses UV light to cleanse the air. Two lamps are installed within the ductwork of your home’s HVAC system. The lights shine on the air passing through the ducts. One light kills bacteria while the second one oxidizes the air. The air is cleansed of contaminants and odors before it is released into your home.
