Fight Allergies in Winnipeg with a UV Germicidal Light

Ultraviolet light was initially used to heal tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sterilize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Winnipeg home’s environment purer.

A UV lamp can clean HVAC systems and boost the air quality in your Winnipeg home. It can kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other microbes within 10 seconds of contact.

This can lead to relief for asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid areas where mold and bacteria flourish. These lights may even help your HVAC equipment last longer, since they keep parts clean.

Our Experts can advise you on the equipment that will work best for your home and your family’s needs. And all work by Winnipeg Supply Service Experts is supported by a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for a year.*

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?

Ultraviolet lamps are installed inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and run constantly. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.

In as quickly as 10 seconds, this powerful light blocks contaminants from growing throughout your HVAC system and home.

Two studies have shown how efficient UV light is in battling germs and mold.

In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to eliminate 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.

In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold levels in a commercial office building’s HVAC equipment.

A germicidal system can also take care of odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not effective against dust, which is best managed by an air filtration system.

Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?

Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you follow a few safety measures.

The sun radiates ultraviolet light, which has a lower wavelength than light you can see. It’s behind causing painful sunburns. Prolonged overexposure can cause wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.

The type of light used in a germicidal system is more concentrated, so it’s important to let Winnipeg Supply Service Experts take care of installation and maintenance. You should never look directly at the light or let bare skin be exposed to it.
