Air Conditioning Guide - Tips to keep you Comfy

Fight the germs in your air!

Bacteria growth without a UV Light

When you put your home’s air under a microscope, you may find that what you can’t see CAN hurt you and your system.

50% of all illnesses are either caused by, or aggravated by, polluted indoor air. Contaminated home comfort systems (air conditioning and heating) can become a breeding ground for biological contaminants, such as bacteria, viruses and mold. The system can distribute contaminants throughout your home. 1 out of 6 people who suffer from allergies do so because of fungi and bacteria in the air ducts in the home. Levels of pollution inside the home can be two to five times higher, and occasionally 100 times higher, than outdoor levels. Children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems benefit the most from fewer airborne pollutants.

Improve your home’s indoor air comfort
Bryant UV Lights

UV Light offers the efficiency of a 75-watt light bulb while delivering the benefits of cleaner indoor air and a cleaner, more energy efficient comfort system.

Take action to protect yourself and family from these harmful airborne contaminants by installing a germicidal UV light in your air conditioning and heating system. A germicidal UV light works with your air filter to clean your indoor air. The air filter captures contaminants, then the germicidal UV light radiates a frequency that penetrates the cell walls of biological contaminants, damaging their physiological structure. The contaminants are no longer viable and cannot continue to grow, multiply and spread throughout your heating and cooling system. Your air handling system will operate more efficiently as the coils, drain pan and duct-work stay cleaner.

Enjoy healthier air … Neutralize harmful contaminants with a germicidal UV Light.

Don’t forget to check our current coupons for a Free UV Light with any new installation.
