Fight Allergies in Toronto with a UV Germicidal Light
Ultraviolet light was originally used to heal tuberculosis. Today, it’s used to sanitize hospitals, some foods during processing, water and air. Germicidal lamps can also make your Toronto home’s environment cleaner.
A UV lamp can disinfect HVAC systems and boost the air quality in your Toronto home. It can eliminate mold, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens within 10 seconds of contact.
This can bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers, especially in hot, humid locations where mold and bacteria flourish. These lights may even help your HVAC equipment run longer, since they keep components clean.

How Does Germicidal UV Light Work?
Ultraviolet lamps are put inside your ductwork, near your HVAC system, and run continuously. These lamps use ultraviolet radiation and special lightbulbs to wipe out the DNA of bacteria or a virus.
In as fast as 10 seconds, this powerful light stops contaminants from spreading throughout your HVAC system and home.
Two studies have shown how effective UV light is in battling germs and mold.
In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center used it to wipe out 97 percent of drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms.
In 2001, researchers found UV light “significantly lowered” mold amounts in a commercial office building’s HVAC system.
A germicidal system can also wipe out odors and airborne bioaerosols like pollen or pet dander. It’s not practical against dust, which is best controlled by an air filtration system.
Is UV Germicidal Light Safe?
Using UV light in your home is safe as long as you follow a couple of safety measures.
The sun emits ultraviolet light, which has a shorter wavelength than light you can see. It’s behind creating painful sunburns. Extended overexposure can result in wrinkles, skin cancer and eye problems.
The type of light used in a germicidal system is more powerful, so it’s important to let Service Experts Commercial HVAC manage installation and maintenance. You should never look right at the light or allow bare skin touch it.
