UV Air Filtration
All Year Cooling and Heating offers UV air filtration products designed to kill pathogens, VOCs and other microorganisms that your current filtration system may miss.
Most systems include filters that trap airborne particles and dust, but are not as effective in preventing pathogens, microorganisms and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). UV air filtration products kill these pathogens, microorganisms and VOCs. UV air filtration products also get rid of mold, bacteria, viruses and odors that plague many households without homeowners realizing it.
UV air filtration is designed to sit within the cool, damp conditions of the air conditioning system. UV air filtration kills VOCs, which may be very harmful to our health and may produce unpleasant odors. Sources of VOCs include building materials, smoking, air fresheners, cleaning chemicals, cosmetics, fuel, oil and/or gasoline, moth balls, vehicle exhaust from the garage, etc.
UV air filtration products destroy microorganisms and mold that collect on the coil, air handler and other surfaces. Other products use UV air filtration to destroy microorganisms in the air before they reach you or your family.
With all the press afforded to poor outdoor air quality, few homeowners pay much attention to their indoor air quality or UV air filtration. The EPA, however, warns that air inside the home may be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air, making products such as UV air filtration valuable.

Indoor Air Quality
Mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses may lead to certain health problems such as allergies, asthma, respiratory disease and infections, which UV air filtration helps to combat. Products such as UV air filtration help to improve residential and commercial indoor air quality and may help create a healthier environment.
While UV air filtration has recently begun to grow in popularity, ultraviolet light has been used for years to kill germs and bacteria in the air and water.
Ultraviolet light, such as that produced by UV air filtration products, penetrates the cell membrane of microorganisms, damaging the cell and destroying it or preventing it from reproducing. Some UV air filtration products combine ultraviolet light and oxidation technology to kill surface mold, mildew and other harmful microorganisms, as well as airborne pathogens.
All Year Cooling and Heating technicians are trained to install UV air filtration products in ideal spots within the air conditioning system to kill mold, mildew and other microorganisms. Some UV air filtration products are installed near the coil or air handler, while other UV air filtration products are installed in the plenum.
