UV Air Purification

UV Air Purification in Minneapolis and St. Paul

You want the air in your home and office to be clean, but Twin Cities Clean Air wants it to be more than clean — we want it to be pure. That’s why we offer UV air purifier installation.

Your HVAC system’s air filter can only do so much. It’s helpful in filtering out some of the dust and dirt that might otherwise infiltrate your home. But it can’t stop microscopic organisms from getting through, and these are the ones that pose the greatest risk to your health. They include bacteria, viruses, pet dander, mold spores and more.

Common Pathogens in the Twin Cities

Invaders can come from virtually anywhere. Bacteria and viruses are in the air, both inside your home and out. One of the most dangerous viruses that can enter your home is the hantavirus, which comes from rodent droppings. This virus can make you and your family — or your workers — sick. It can even be fatal.

While hantavirus is not common everywhere, mold certainly is. It can grow anywhere in or around your home or office building. Air conditioners are especially prone to mold growth because of the condensate component of the system.

You might see mold growing inside or outside your building, but it’s hard to see it inside your air ducts or HVAC equipment. And in fact, the air in your home or office can be contaminated with mold spores even though you may never see any mold growing.

UV Air Purifiers Protect a Building’s Occupants

With a UV air purifier, you don’t have to worry about these kinds of pathogens. A UV air purifier uses radiation to kill living microorganisms that attempt to gain access to your home through your air vents.

We install these systems in your HVAC unit, where they stop germs in their tracks. They’re safe for people and pets, however, because they only work inside your air ducts. Whenever anyone accesses your HVAC system, the UV air purifier turns off.

Opt for a Strong Line of Defense

We may not use our air conditioners in Minneapolis or St. Paul as often as residents of warmer climates do, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t exposed to germs as often. If you have forced hot air, your air ducts carry not just cool air, but warm air too. Whenever your furnace or A/C kicks on, whatever is in your air ducts gets blasted throughout your home or office.

That’s why it’s a good idea to protect yourself — change your HVAC filter regularly and have Twin Cities Clean Air install a UV air purifier. You’ll notice the difference in the health of your family or your workers. They’ll get fewer colds and miss fewer days of work or school. They’ll suffer less with runny noses, coughs and other upper respiratory systems. They’ll be more productive and visit the doctor less often.
