If you could examine the internal components your A/C system, you’d be surprised how wet they are. And mold absolutely loves damp environments – especially in Florida, where mold often grows lushly. The Florida Department of Health recently stated that it expects most, if not all, A/C systems in the state to experience mold problems at some point. Here’s why that’s important.
Once mold is established, the unit’s blower fan can spread spores throughout the ducts and into living spaces. For sensitive residents, mold triggers nasal congestion, sneezing, runny noses and itchy, watery eyes. In homes with humidity levels higher than 50 percent – not uncommon in Florida – these distributed spores can take hold and grow on home materials and furnishings. Stopping this process at the source is crucial.
Service America recommends UV light sterilizing units, which install easily in A/C systems to harness safe and very effective ultraviolet light to dramatically reduce mold in the A/C system itself and prevent spores from circulating. These units also effectively suppress a range of other irritating materials: bacteria, fungi, viruses, allergens, smells and volatile organic compounds. Independent researchers confirm that UV light obliterates a range of pathogens:
As they protect homeowners from the hazards of mold, UV light sterilizing units are also keeping A/C equipment healthier. They improve system efficiency and longevity by keeping condenser coils cleaner and reducing clogs from algae growth.
Though it’s harmless to humans and pets, UV light disinfects so well that its use is rapidly expanding. It’s now treating surgical tools, swimming pools, toothbrushes, juices, wastewater, manicure implements – even computer keyboards!
Isn’t it time to make this technology work for you? Protect yourself, your family, your A/C and your home with a UV light sterilizing unit installed by Service America.
