Since 1960 American Ultraviolet® has manufactured 100,000+ effective UVC germicidal fixtures for commercial, healthcare and residential applications. Our germicidal ultraviolet fixtures reduce harmful pathogens, increase efficiency, prolong equipment life, and improve indoor air quality.
UVC Is Efficient and Safe
UVC Germicidal Fixtures increase the value of all air conditioning and air-circulating systems by:
- Maximizing system efficiency
- Prolonging blower life
- Providing healthier air to breathe
Treating air that passes through an HVAC unit with ultraviolet light will reduce, or eliminate, DNA-based airborne contami- nants (bacteria, viruses, mold spores, yeast, protozoa), and provide much healthier air to breathe. UVC Germicidal Fixtures are a labor-free solution that will not harm occupants, equipment or furnishings because they produce no ozone or secondary contaminants. For more than 70 years, tens of thousands have been safely installed in hospitals, clinics, processing plants, com- mercial offices, manufacturing sites and other commercial facilities and multi-and single-family residences around the world.
Filters and Coil Cleaning
Filters are necessary to trap dust, pollen and other particles, however, to remove harmful bacteria and viruses from the air stream you need the addition of UVC light to render these microorganisms sterile, and therefore unable to reproduce.
Cleaning coils is like treating symptoms. Using UVC Germicidal Fixtures from American Ultraviolet Company, on the other hand, is actually more like curing the disease.
Without UVC, coils require constant clean- ing, an expensive and inferior process that often relies on toxic and/or flammable solvents that are dangerous, and that can diminish the life of the coil. Cleaning also frequently leaves material embedded in the center of the fin pack. Power washing, in particular, can actually force growth deeper into the fin pack, compressing it so tightly that the only solution could be to replace the coil.
UVC Germicidal Fixtures keep coils clean all of the time, enabling HVAC systems to perform as originally intended, and ensuring:
- System efficiency
- Longer equipment life
- Lower energy and maintenance costs
They’ll often pay for themselves in months and can help you save many thousands of dollars in on-going energy and maintenance costs. In addition, UVC Germicidal Fixtures play a very important role in improving air quality and will eliminate the awful odor and slimy build up associated with mold and bacteria that thrive when temperatures are between 50-100F (especially when moisture is present), and that make air unhealthy for all building and residential occupants. Healthier employees mean better productiv- ity and less sick time.
