Wilkes–Barre, PA UV Air Purifier Services by Green Planet Solutions Corp

Indoor air quality plays a large part in your health and quality of life. You may not think about it all that often, but the air you breathe is not just atmosphere. There are millions of particulates floating around in your air, some of which can be quite harmful. It is these harmful contaminants that need to be addressed if you’re going to be as healthy as possible. Read on to find out about the kinds of contaminants that can make you sick, and how a UV air purifier can protect you.

Green Planet Solutions Corp provides UV air purifier services in Wilkes–Barre, PA and the surrounding areas.

Why You Need a UV Air Purifier

As previously mentioned, the air in your home is full of microscopic, airborne contaminants. Some of the most common of these include dust, pollen, dander, viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. While a few of these are simply lung irritants or allergens, others can inflict more serious illness if allowed to infect a human. These are often the biological contaminants, like viruses and bacteria.

Normally, the germs that you occasionally inhale are not a major threat. This is because they are often either stopped by your body’s frontline defenses or quickly destroyed by your immune system. Sometimes, however, your body’s defenses are weakened enough that these germs can more easily enter your system. Extremely dry weather can cause your skin and mucus membranes to dry out and crack, making it much easier for you to be infected by the germs you inhale. This is part of the reason that more people get sick during the winter; they keep their heaters running constantly, which dries out their air and makes them vulnerable.

How UV Air Purifiers Work

Fortunately, there is a way to combat these airborne germs in the form of a UV air purifier. UV air purifiers, also called UV germicidal lights, operate on the principle that many airborne germs are extremely sensitive to ultraviolet light. If exposed to too much ultraviolet radiation, the cellular processes that allow the germs to survive and multiply are destroyed.

A UV germicidal light is basically a lightbulb that gives off increased amounts of ultraviolet radiation. While this radiation is harmless to humans, it will kill virtually all of the germs in the air around it.

We Offer UV Air Purifier Installation and Repair Services

There are a number of different UV air purifier types available, including portable and whole house versions. We recommend the whole house variety, which is installed in the ductwork of your home. This allows it to sterilize all air that passes through your ductwork and is circulated throughout the house.

If you believe you may have a problem with your UV air purifier, we can take care of that as well. Green Planet Solutions Corp offers comprehensive professional UV air purifier repair services. If you need a UV air purifier installed, maintained, or repaired, just give us a call to schedule an appointment.
