About the Use of UV Light in HVAC Applications
UVC light has been used very successfully in HVACR equipment since the 1990’s to improve indoor environmental quality, eradicate surface mold and bacteria, and save energy by returning heat-transfer equipment to as-installed efficiency levels.
Historically, UV has been widely used since the 1800’s to disinfect and heal wounds, aseptically package military K-Rations, and sterilize medical and dental instruments. Today, in addition to HVAC applications, UV is used to rid waste, drinking and process water of harmful microbes that affect human health and sterilize packaged and non-packaged liquids of most every kind. UV also is used in pharmaceutical applications, the military, Centers for Disease Control, Homeland Security, and NASA.
