UV Germicidal Light Systems and Service

Wm. Henderson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. provides UV germicidal light installation, replacement, and maintenance to customers throughout the Delaware County and The Main Line area. If you are interested in installing a UV germicidal light system in your home, we can talk to you about how this technology works and how it can benefit you.

Benefits of UV Germicidal Light Systems

UV germicidal light systems are installed as part of a forced air HVAC system, and they clean the air as it passes through your air duct system. The UV lights kill microscopic germs, including bacteria, viruses, certain allergens, and airborne mold spores. They can also kill mold growing on or in your heating and cooling system, such as the cooling coils, drain pans, or inside the ductwork. If you choose to install one, keep in mind that UV lights are designed to work with another air filtration system, since they cannot filter out some of the particles that air cleaners are designed to trap.

While HEPA filters and electronic air cleaners work well to filter the air inside your home, UV germicidal lights provide extra protection by using UV light technology to kill harmful germs before they are circulated throughout the air in your home. Call the indoor air quality specialists at Wm. Henderson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. if you want to know more about the advantages of installing a UV germicidal light system.

Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) cleaners are more common, and they kill viruses and bacteria. The other type of UV light air cleaner is called a photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) cleaner. It uses a UV lamp in conjunction with a substance designed to react with the UV light to destroy gaseous pollutants. While PCO cleaners can convert these gases into harmless products, they cannot remove particles. If you are interested in a UV germicidal light installation, call Wm. Henderson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Inc. any time.

UV Light Replacement

Once your UV germicidal light system is installed, you will need to maintain it for optimal performance. When dust and dirt create a coating on the bulb, it can lower UV output and the effectiveness of the light. To help maintain your UV light system and ensure that it is working at maximum capacity, you should replace the bulbs once a year and regularly clean them. If you aren’t sure how to safely clean or replace your bulbs, we can take care of it for you. Call us any time to schedule an appointment. We’ll also check your UV lights during annual maintenance check–ups for your HVAC system.
