Wintertime in Lexington spells colds and illnesses for many in the area. This time of year, we see the flu virus going around, often affecting many in the same household or office as it spreads. While flu shots and cleaning are good preventative measures against illness, you may be forgetting that the air inside your home or business could be contributing to sickness!

When the air quality inside your home or workplace is poor, you’re more susceptible to falling ill, as you’re exposed to many harmful contaminants. This includes viruses, germs, bacteria, and other particles that spread sickness as air circulates. So, how do you fight back?

Installing ultraviolet air purification systems are a smart move to fight against the spread of the flu and winter colds. Use them year-round to control allergy symptoms and boost the overall quality of the air you breathe inside.

Ultraviolet air purifiers (a.k.a. UV lights) are installed inside your HVAC system and ductwork. They treat air as it circulates, using safe UV radiation to kill virus and bacteria particles, rendering them harmless to you. This natural air treatment process is completely safe for humans and pets.

Air purifiers using ultraviolet energy are extremely effective, killing over 99 percent of contaminants in your air stream. Hospitals and medical facilities use these systems to sterilize air and control the spread of infections. UV air purifiers use very little energy to treat the air, and do not cost much to operate. They are easily maintained, requiring bulbs to be changed once every one to three years, depending on the type of equipment.
