Microscopic mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses linger in the air, leading to allergies, asthma, respiratory disease and infection. These unseen biohazards can live and breed within your air conditioning systems' moist environment, encouraging micro-organisms to breed, multiply and grow. And once airborne, unseen particles can pose a serious health threat to you and your family.
Common Indoor Pollutants Include:
Even the cleanest home can be a breeding ground for the micro-organisms that may live undetected within your air conditioning system.
How UV Light Works
There are many spectrums to "light".....these include infrared, radio, x-rays, gamma, and ultra-violet rays. Germicidal UV is the narrow wavelength of 254nm used to inactivate airborne pathogens. This specific UV wavelength has been recognized since the early 1930's as an effective germ and virus killer.
Micro organisms that travel through your indoor air can get trapped in the moist environment of your air conditioning system. Bacteria can then breed and spread throughout the system and your home. The Blue Tube Fresh-Aire UV Light System attacks and sterilizes these bacteria in your air conditioning system, where they live and breed. The Blue Tube purifies the air that moves through your home, improving the quality of your indoor living space.
Germicidal ultraviolet light produced by the Blue Tube Fresh-Aire UV light system penetrates the cellular walls of micro-organisms present in your air conditioning system, causing cellular damage and either killing the cells or preventing them from reproducing.
UV Light Can Extend The Life Of Your Air Conditioning System
In addition to the undisputed effectiveness of UV light sterilization with regard to your health, field and laboratory tests highlight its ability to clean indoor cooling coils that have been caked with mold and mildew. While you're probably familiar with the tedious task of changing air conditioning filters, they do little to prevent build up on the cooling coil.
The photo to the left shows a dirty evaporator coil that exists in many air conditioning systems. In addition to the obvious detrimental effect on the air quality, this coil is reducing airflow by about 50%, resulting in higher operating costs.
The same coil is pictured on the right after being exposed to a UV lightsystem fortwo to four weeks. The light has actually "scrubbed" the evaporator coil back to almost factory new condition -- with no caustic chemicals or expensive cleaning services. This coil was cleaned entirely by the effects of the UV light.
