It may sound overly simplistic, but usually, when you're trying to solve a problem, you need to figure out what the true cause (s) are and eliminate those and you solve the problem, right? Concerns allergies & asthma, it's often airborne particles that cause the majority of the symptoms. And air filtration systems often do help with removing those airborne particles and chemicals, but still, some allergy & asthma sufferers can not seem to really get the relief they're searching for.
So what's the problem? Clearly there is still something in the air that is causing problems, right? Exactly. And what has been discovered in research is that the live bacteria, dust mites and mold spores coming from the air conditioning ducts and HVAC system coils are often regularly getting inhaled by allergy & asthma sufferers, which creates a regular internal allergic response, which is understood Since mold spores and dust mites (and dust mite body parts) are one of the most allergic and asthma-reaction causing agents known to man. And these pollutants are being inhaled either because there is no HEPA filtration system in the home, the air purifier unit is inadequately equipped with substandard filters, or does not have enough ouput or air-cycling power to remove the particles before they're inhaled .
UV air cleaners are a good solution to this issue because the UV light and negative ions produced not only kill those bacteria, mold, viruses, & dust mites before they have a chance to blow out of the duct work, but also cause them to clump together and fall out of the air. This clumping action actually helps HEPA filters trap the dust & particles better as well, which will leave even less pollutant in the air. And even if you do not add any new room air purifiers to your home or office, the fact that the germs are being killed and falling out of the air more often is going to significantly improve your air quality and reduce allergy & asthma symptoms. UV light air cleaners are often so effective that allergy & asthma sufferers notice a tremendous improvement in air quality and symptom reduction in as little as 24-48 hours-without even having any room air purifiers running.
So, to get a quick, noticeable reduction in allergy, asthma, sinus or respiratory symptoms, we recommend a two-bulb, 36 watt per bulb, UV light air purifier system , installed in the output ducts of your HVAC system. We recommend two 36 watt bulbs because two bulbs creates enough light units to destroy over 99% of germs on the first pass. And we recommend installing the UV unit on the output side of your HVAC system to make sure that you're killing any bacteria, mold or viruses that come from the coil (a common breeding ground for germs). For the very best, cleanest air possible, install a two bulb system and have a couple of top-rated air purifiers running as well, with true HEPA and carbon filters. That combination has proved very effective for chronic allergy & asthma reduction in almost every case.
