UV Lighting and Home Air Quality in Kamloops

The importance of maintaining a clean, healthy air quality in your home is of great importance. After all, indoor air quality (IAQ) plays a role in everything from allergies to contagious illnesses and bacterial infections. Luckily, KVA Mechanical has the solutions you need to improve your home’s air quality. VOCs and particles can be reduced and eliminated from your home’s indoor air with whole-house IAQ products including air scrubbers, UV lamps, and ventilators. They attach to your HVAC system and clean the air that circulates through your ducting. UV lights in HVAC systems, in particular, can have a significant impact on indoor air quality. 

Why UV Lighting for Indoor Air Quality in Thompson-Nicola?

For minimizing the number of large, inorganic particles in your air ducts, traditional air conditioner filters are enough. However, smaller living microbes known as bioaerosols can sneak through typical air filters and make their way into your home’s interior – and your lungs!

This includes airborne pollutants like dust mites, secondhand cigarette smoke, pet dander, and harmful gasses such as radon and carbon monoxide. Your ducts may also be inadvertently spreading bioaerosols like mold spores, bacteria, and mildew. All of these toxins contribute to poor indoor air quality, which can have a negative impact on your health and cause allergies and respiratory issues. UV germicidal irradiation technology, sometimes known as UV lights, is considered an effective way to neutralize these pests.

How UV Lights Improve Air Quality

A single or dual UV light will be installed within your ducting or near a component of your HVAC system called the evaporator coil. This UV lamp shines a germicidal light on all of the air that passes through your ductwork. 

Unlike sunlight, UV radiation has the ability to penetrate the DNA of microorganisms such as mold and bacteria by breaking their reproductive cycles. This results in germ eradication! Because an efficient cooling system circulates a household’s worth of air throughout your home multiple times a day, the UV lights put in your home will disinfect your indoor air on a continuous basis. As much as half of the bioaerosols in your home may be eradicated after just 45 minutes of ultraviolet light treatment.

    Furnace motor needed replacing. Absolutely the best service ever. A technician arrived within 40mins of calling. The motor was ordered and installed the following morning. Awesome Company.

    I had a top leaking hot water tank that needed to be replaced. I contacted KVA Mechanical and they were able to give me a quote over the phone. They came in the next day, while I was at work, replaced the hot water tank and added new lines … More and shut off valves all within the quote. They sent an invoice and we were able to pay be e-transfer the next day. It was quality, professional work at a decent price and they responded so quickly. 5 star service!

    Outstanding service and great product.
    Had a Gree heat pump system installed by KVA about two years ago. The benefits of literally having a zero carbon footprint as far as household energy consumption (no fossil fuel!) has been tremendous.

    Even the electrical consumption is low!
    KVA’s prompt installation and follow up on any questions was constantly available. Always helpful with any inquiries. Coupled with convenient financing, it only made sense to get on the heat pump trend.
    I would highly recommend KVA for any of their services.
