Have you ever noticed a musty or moldy smell when your air conditioning turns on? It’s possible that your AC coils and other components are host to mold and mildew. These unwanted pathogens can grow on coils in the air handler or in the HVAC ductwork. The air conditioning coils in your AC unit cause water condensation which provides the necessary moisture for these nasty, harmful pathogens.
At Direct Air Conditioning, LLC, we work with homeowners to get their air smelling fresh again in no time. Part of our services include cleaning out the HVAC ductwork to remove the immediate problem, but without the proper treatments mold can come back in time. That’s why we also offer an HVAC UV light, such as BLU QR® UV Stick Light. It sterilizes the interior of the air handler to stop mold, mildew, viruses, and bacteria from taking hold.
Sanitize Your Heating Coils with an HVAC UV Light
You may be wondering what a BLU QR® UV Stick Light is and how it works. Well, ultraviolet light has been used for over a hundred years to kill organisms that might harm people and animals. The specific frequency of UV light waves affects DNA in organisms by preventing them from replicating. In fact, the UV light in sunshine is part of what causes premature aging and skin damage with years of chronic exposure in people!
The BLU QR® UV Stick Light is a stronger source of UV that shines constantly to prevent the growth of organisms. UV light is unable to penetrate solid surfaces like plastic, glass, or metal, so it doesn’t harm people because the lightstick is safely contained inside your HVAC system.
There are also many benefits of using UV light to sanitize your air handler and HVAC system:
- Stops Mold and Mildew Growth
- Stops Virus and Bacteria Reproduction
- No Need for Chemical Cleaning
- Eliminates Musty or Bad Smells
- Improves Indoor Air Quality
- Reduces the Need for AC Maintenance
- Improves AC Longevity
