UV refers to ultraviolet light with wavelengths between 200-280 nanometres (nm). UV lights can be used to disinfect commercial properties and sterilizing surfaces by destroying harmful microorganisms in food products and in the air. UV lights are used as a disinfection method. Short wavelength ultraviolet light kills and deactivates micro organisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions.
UV disinfection systems come with very stable construction, no harmful chemicals or by-products made with high quality materials and high-performance germicidal lamps. Compact units require minimum space and simple installation. At Dickerson our highly professional service technicians can install these lamps for you with the assurance of trouble free years and regular maintenance! UV Light Disinfection services include:
When UV lights are placed inside an HVAC system, they sterilize all the organic particles that pass through. UV light can damage eyesight, making this placement one of the safest. At Dickerson Heating and Air our HVAC contractors can place them strategically inside the ducts, as well as pointing them inside the air handler at the evaporator coil. This coil carries the refrigerant from your air conditioner. As the air passes over it, the refrigerant absorbs the heat in the air, cooling it. Humidity in your property’s air also condenses on the coil which collects in the drain pan below the coil and drains away via the drainpipe. This condensation creates an ideal environment for mold growth on the evaporator coil and pan. When it does, your cooling system’s efficiency is reduced and your indoor air quality falls. Given the excessive humidity in Georgia, it’s important to keep the coil as clean as possible for effective dehumidification in the summer.
