Ultraviolet (UV) light has been growing as part of the HVAC landscape for years, specifically within the IAQ arena. ASHRAE's validation is certainly a huge step forward for UV, but many manufacturers believe this technology has already proven its value, as its growth and expansion began years ago.
Whether it’s through the use of UV light, whole-home IAQ solutions, or commercial-grade air-filtration equipment, the following case studies showcase ways contractors have solved IAQ problems at both the residential and commercial levels.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, is an established means of disinfection and can be used to prevent the spread of certain infectious diseases. UV-C radiation kills or inactivates microbes by damaging their DNA.
The product delivers ultraviolet energy to destroy coil/drain pan microbial infestations and disinfect moving airstreams in hard-to-service fan coil units, package terminal air conditioner (PTAC) units, and heat pump systems.
