UV Lights clean the air throughout your home or business because they are installed directly inside your central air system. Microbes and odors are eliminated as air cycles repeatedly through the system. UV lights aren't just for people with asthma or allergies; we all need clean air to be healthy and thrive. According to the EPA, indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outside air. Your family deserves to live in a healthy indoor environment. These products will also keep your air system clean and make it last longer.
• Whole-house design works in central air system
• Kills mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens
• Improves indoor air quality
• Eliminates unpleasant odors
• Extends life of air system
Safe & Effective Disinfection Technology
For over a century scientists have known that certain frequencies of light have a devastating effect on microbial life. We now know that exposure to ultraviolet light disrupts the DNA of micro-organisms thus preventing them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.
UV Light - A Well Established Disinfection Technology
UV light disinfection is now widely used in hospitals and laboratories to sanitize instruments and work surfaces and to prevent the spread of potentially lethal airborne infectious diseases. The technology is used by the food industry to sterilize food before packaging and water treatment systems large and small now incorporate UV light as a chemical-free means of purification.
Kill Germs With Light
Because the frequency of a UV light is filtered out by the Earth's atmosphere microorganisms have no defense against it. It works by scrambling their DNA which prevents them from reproducing.
Indoor Air Quality
According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk. UV lights improve indoor air quality by sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air as it cycles through the central air system.
The HVAC system in your home is a major investment in comfort. Protecting this valuable asset should be an important priority for any homeowner. In Florida, we see a lot of lightning activity. Homeowners often try to protect computers, TVs, printers and smaller consumer appliances, but frequently neglect the much more expensive systems in the home, such as an air conditioning system or heat pump. Lightning or electrical surge damage can be an expensive repair job.
Reasons for a Surge Protector
Lightning strikes and electric company power spikes are two common causes of electrical surges. It is estimated that there are an average of 1.5 million lightning strikes a year in Florida. A lightning strike near your home can be enough to cause damage to your air conditioning system or heat pump. There is little that you can do to protect from a direct lightning strike. Direct lightning strikes are rare. Much more frequent are the nearby strikes that cause a power surge, which can knock out your condenser, fan, or compressor, as well fry your wiring.
Most electrical surges are minor; however, the big surges are reason enough to install Surge Protection in your home. A lightning strike in your neighborhood can cause a surge with the strength of 100,000 amps. Lightning strikes near a power line can translate into an electrical spike of a million volts or more. That kind of voltage surging through the power lines to your home HVAC system is a recipe for disaster.
Unfortunately, lightning is not the only source of power surges. Power interruptions due to downed power lines are even more likely to cause damaging surges and spikes. The most frequent cause of power disturbances is actually equipment such as, HVAC systems and major appliances, switching off and on. An estimated 65% of transient voltage surges are caused by inside sources and only 35% are generated by outside sources.
Air conditioning system repairs for damage caused by lightning strikes is not usually covered by your HVAC system warranty. Fortunately, many homeowners’ insurance policies do cover damage caused by lightning; however, the burden is on the homeowner to prove the damage was caused by lightning and not some other source.
Air Conditioning Power Surge Investment
Forman Heating and Air recommends the installation of a surge protector. You can protect your HVAC system with a power spurge protector. An extremely large surge may short out the surge protector, which will protect your HVAC or Heat Pump system.
