Safe & Effective Disinfection
For over a century scientists have known that certain frequencies of light have a devastating effect on microbial life. We now know that exposure to ultraviolet light in the range of 254 NM (UV-C band) disrupts the DNA of micro-organisms thus preventing them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.
UV Light – A Well Established Disinfection Technology
UV light disinfection is now widely used in hospitals and laboratories to sanitize instruments and work surfaces and to prevent the spread of potentially lethal airborne infectious diseases. The technology is used by the food industry to sterilize food before packaging and water treatment systems large and small now incorporate UV light as a chemical-free means of purification.
Kill Germs With Light
Because the frequency of UV-C light is filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere microorganisms have no defense against it. It works by scrambling their DNA which prevents them from reproducing.
Indoor Air Quality
According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk. UV-C improves indoor air quality by sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air as it cycles through the central air system.
FRESH-AIRE UV - Indoor Air Quality Products for Home & Business
Welcome to Fresh-Aire UV, makers of the world’s best whole-house UV light and activated carbon air purifiers. Our products clean the air throughout your home or business because they are installed directly inside your central air system. Microbes and odors are eliminated as air cycles repeatedly through the system.
Indoor air pollution can be divided roughly into thirds:
PARTICULATES - MOLD/GERMS - ODORS/VOCs
Conventional filtration is effective against particulates, like dust, but has no effect on the other two thirds. Fresh-Aire UV light, are proven to sterilize biological contaminants like mold, germs, and viruses in the air and on air system surfaces. APCO products neutralize odor-causing VOCs as well as biological contaminants inside the air system and throughout the home.
