UV Disinfection in HVAC

Germs. Tiny little microorganisms that wreak so much havoc in your customers’ buildings when left unchecked. Now, more than ever, your customers are faced with keeping surfaces and areas safe thorough cleaning. But that leads to the question of how to clean and disinfect things that aren’t easily reached, such as the rarely seen inside of HVAC systems.

Disinfection is termed as being a process that eliminates all or a majority of pathogenic microorganisms on inanimate objects. The sense of urgency in keeping buildings—i.e. hospitals, restaurants, warehouses, schools/universities, etc., germ and virus-free, may be the biggest day-to-day headache all of your customers are currently facing.

Ultraviolet disinfection, to be exact, is how the industry is making strides in the current climate. So, let’s break down how it works in regard to HVAC and how easy it can be for you to implement so that your customers see the value. Ultraviolet germicidal radiation is mainly used to sterilize equipment and has actually been used to treat water since as far back as 1909. UV disinfection doesn’t truly kill microorganisms but through exposure to the radiation, renders them inactive through sterilization.

This ultraviolet radiation will kill a variety of harmful organic buildup in an HVAC system’s ducts and coils. By purifying the air or coils as the microorganisms pass by, you’re able to target specific areas and keep system additions and/or retrofits minimal, which makes every project as cost-efficient as possible. Coil Sanitizing Lights or Air Sanitizing Lights are two options and typically have a low installation cost. They fit in seamlessly with other system aspects and add another level of protection for those that are within said system’s vicinity.
