The last thing Your Home Team at Woodfin wants is for Richmond homeowners to worry about the quality of air inside their homes, especially during the spring season when allergies are more rampant, and how it can impact their health.

That’s why we offer a wide variety of solutions for when it comes to indoor air quality.

One important tool Woodfin customers can rely on for ensuring clean, breathable air is the germicidal UV light. Let’s learn more about this type of solution by answering a few commonly asked questions!

How do UV lights improve indoor air quality?

UV light affects the DNA of mold, fungus and viruses, preventing them from growing, reproducing and setting on the surfaces of the HVAC system’s coil and ducts. The goal with UV lighting is to essentially clean the HVAC system from the inside, so the air circulating through the home is cleaner and healthier to breathe.

What determines the effectiveness of UV lights?

UV lights are not a one-size-fits-all purchase. Depending on the size of the HVAC system, different strengths of the UV light and size of the equipment will be needed. It’s always best to consult the experts at Woodfin to get the size right!

Will UV lights be enough to clean the air?

While UV lights are great for removing microorganisms from the home, they are only a piece of the puzzle that is good indoor air quality! Consider also installing media filters to trap tiny particles that can also negatively impact the air circulating through your home, and check out the other indoor air quality solutions we provide!
