Air Sterilization

Is Your 竞博jboapp Making You Sick?

To understand why many of today’s health problems can be caused by the 竞博jboapp you live in, you need to look back a few years to see what caused this to happen. 你看到, during the energy crisis of the early 1970s, highly insulated “tight” 竞博jboapps became popular because of their potential to reduce energy costs.

Within a few years, 然而, complaints started to arise, 由于健康原因, and excessive moisture issues caused by indoor pollution, and associated moisture problems within these 竞博jboapps.

In the late 1980s and early 90s, indoor air quality became a nationally recognized issue. Even today, newer and more energy-efficient 竞博jboapps seemed predisposed to the problem. 除了, they retain more humidity and airborne pollutants, which causes longer life-spans, and more productive cycles of microbial activity within the 竞博jboapp, 比如霉菌, 细菌, bacteria and viruses.

This greater activity and concentration of these airborne contaminants, equates to more allergic reactions, and sickness within families, for longer periods of time.


Why is mold so difficult to control? Mold is at the bottom of the food chain. It thrives on very little, 生长迅速, and produces spores, volatile organic com-pounds, and other toxins. One organism can multiply to trillions in less than three weeks. When given the right conditions, mold can occur anywhere; in 竞博jboapps, 学校, 工作场所, entertainment centers, 车辆, 等.

The interior of your ductwork and air conditioning equipment, provides an ideal environment for mold growth — especially in the air conditioners inside drain-pan where it is dark, 潮湿的, and filled with nutrients. The result can be like blowing air over a swamp or through a sewer and then into your 竞博jboapp, 车辆, 和工作场所.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 60% of Indoor 空气质量 (IAQ) problems and allergies may be mold-related. Some IAQ diagnosticians and practitioners today say the figure may be as high as 80%. The increased usage of air conditioning systems almost directly parallels the increase of allergies and IAQ problems.

As mold and bacteria grow on coils and in drain pans, they are disseminated through the ducts to occupied spaces. Some mold products (toxins) produce serious and sometimes life-threatening reactions, including allergy, 哮喘, hypersensitivity, 肺炎, and in some extreme cases even bleeding lung disease.

Additionally, mold creates a troublesome maintenance problem. Its activity results in dirty coils, a loss of air-flow, loss of heat exchange efficiency, dirty and sometimes plugged drain pans, and excessive energy use.


Our company has found that the most successful way to handle system mold is through Ultraviolet (U.V.) germicidal lights. 这些你.V. systems are a recent breakthrough in protecting the health of a 竞博jboapp.

Ultraviolet light in the “C" band (UVC) has been used for more than 65 years to kill microorganisms in hospitals, 理发店, 实验室, pharmaceutical plants, and at the nation's Center for Disease Control. Residential ultraviolet units have been independently tested and proved to be effective in the constantly moving air environments of heating and cooling systems, killing mold and bacteria quickly and effectively. The UVC energy attacks the organism’s DNA and either destroys it immediately or prevents it from reproducing.

For most people, the original motivation for installing the lights is to abate IAQ complaints and/or allergies. However, they are also pleased to learn that many hidden odors are also eliminated with U.V. 技术.
