The Science: UVGI, or Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation, is a term used by Federal Agencies such OSHA, FEMA, the EPA, and the CDC when referring to UV-C. UV-C is the specific wavelength of Ultraviolet light that is used to destroy pathogens and microscopic particulate matter. How can light destroy germs and biological contamination? Ultraviolet light has four principal wavelengths: UV-A, UV-B, UV-C and UV-V. Ultraviolet light at generated in the UV-C spectrum (254nm) is classified as ‘Germicidal’ because it will disrupt an organism’s DNA—making it effectively harmless to humans, and no longer able to reproduce. Without the ability to reproduce, the microorganism population is rapidly eliminated.
The Results: Safe Air Solutions’ UVGI products are proven to destroy the very source of serious illnesses like all strains of flu, and RSV, asthma, respiratory allergies, and COPD, to prevent suffering in your home. However, UVGI is also highly effective in eliminating the cause of every day discomforts such as sleep disorders, stuffy noses, itchy, watery eyes, snoring, fatigue, household odors, and common colds. The mold and biological growth bogging down your HVAC system and “seeding” the air in your home will be destroyed. Your system will run more efficiently and your air quality will be drastically improved.
Is UV-C harmful? UV-C is only harmful after direct exposure – but don’t worry. Safe Air devices are installed inside air conditioning equipment or are otherwise shielded to prevent exposure to you or your family. Our bulbs also emit zero ozone or other toxic byproducts. That way, the air in your entire home is protected, your valuable equipment is protected, and so are you!
Did you know: Air quality has also shown a direct connection to the health and wellness of the human Cardiovascular, Endocrine (hormonal), Immune, Integumentary (skin, hair, and nails), Nervous, and Respiratory Systems. So “you are what you.. breathe!” Start breathing better today.
Safe Air Solutions will install a safe and effective UVGI system into your existing central air system to destroy airborne germs, VOCs, odors, and even mold and biological contamination inside your HVAC unit to provide a clean, healthy environment for you and loved ones!
