Can Installing UV Antibacterial Systems Help Fight COVID-19?

Updated: Jun 16

UV antibacterial systems are a new type of technology that can improve the air quality in a home thanks to ultra-violet light. Given that these systems kill viruses, they’ve become increasingly in demand in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here’s a short introduction to UV antibacterial systems provided by Modern Air & Water.

How do UV antibacterial systems work?

UV antibacterial systems use ultraviolet light, which is a natural germicide, to disinfect the air. Specifically, it damages the DNA of bacteria, moulds and other pathogens, preventing them from multiplying and causing disease.

Where are UV antibacterial systems installed?

These germ-killing devices get installed inside your home’s ductwork. This ensures they can improve the air quality in every room. UV antibacterial systems are compatible with nearly every kind of HVAC system in both residential and commercial settings.

What are the benefits of having a UV antibacterial system installed?

UV antibacterial systems safely and effectively improve the air quality in your home by attacking harmful microorganisms. It’s an entirely non-chemical solution to air quality issues that don’t present any health risks. On the contrary, purifying the air you breathe contributes to your well-being.

Additionally, UV antibacterial systems help keep your ductwork clean and free of contaminants. It gets rid of the mould and other pathogens that can thrive in duct systems.

Can UV antibacterial systems eliminate COVID-19 and other viruses?

UV antibacterial systems use UV-C light, which has been proven to eliminate COVID-19 as well as most other airborne viruses. In fact, ultraviolet light systems have already been used extensively as a sanitation measure in hospitals and subways during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, New York City has implemented a program that uses ultraviolet light lamps to eliminate COVID-19 on trains and buses and at subway stations.

With the recent media attention given to the efficacy of UV antibacterial systems in eliminating viruses, there’s been an increased interest in this technology among homeowners.

In particular, those who are vulnerable to the virus, such as seniors and individuals with compromised immune systems, stand to benefit from this technology. However, it’s also a wise investment for big families and large households to reduce the spread of germs.
