UV Light Air Purification in Seattle

Go beyond capturing particles in a filter – choose the mold- and bacteria-killing properties of an ultraviolet light. Fox Plumbing & Heating recommends Honeywell UV lights and odor-absorbing products.

Every time your heating and cooling system turns on, and air runs through your ducts, bacteria, mold, and germs have the chance to blow through. In Seattle, we have plenty of moisture in the air. In the winter, when it’s very rainy, we tend to keep our windows closed, which gives mold an opportunity to grow. If you keep cool with an air source heat pump or air conditioner, the condensing coil can serve as a breeding ground for mold, too.

What Does a UV Light Do?

While an electronic air cleaner or media filter collects particles, dust, and smoke well, it often misses smaller particles like viruses and bacteria. This can be remedied by the addition of a UV light. Ultraviolet light is a powerful purifier, but it’s also completely safe. Hospitals have been using these effective products for many years.

A UV treatment system such as the Honeywell 24V Air Purifier can help protect your family. 87% of airborne bacteria passing through the system and 99.9% of mold on the coil are killed. Its odor-absorbing AirBRIGHT component further purifies the air by reducing VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that pass through the system.

Clean air benefits everyone in the home, but a UV system is especially recommended for those who live in a humid climate, suffer from allergies, or where there are cooking or pet odor concerns.
