As communities and businesses across the country begin to reopen, more people are weighing whether—and how—they should head into work and, perhaps, visit malls and schools. This global pandemic has changed the way humans live, and hence the adoption of new technologies is obvious. There is growing evidence today that COVID 19 viruses hang as microscopic droplets in the air and infect the person breathing in that air. As a result, various guidelines and research papers related to systems that can help in diminishing the spread of Coronaviruses have been released, and HVAC systems are one of them. There are three main ways to get rid of airborne pathogens in building interiors. Pathogens can be expelled from the building with exhaust fans, they can be captured with high-performance air filters, or they can be killed with air purification methods. ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers.) strongly recommends the use of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation or UVGI, which is effective against viruses, bacteria, and mould spores.
Research has shown that places like shopping malls, hospitals, commercial spaces, IT Parks, and schools are exposed to similar unhealthy environments, and that can heighten health issues including congestion, headaches, upper respiratory tract ailments, flu and the novel coronavirus which is responsible for the COVID -19 pandemic.
UVC rays of 254nm wavelength kill germs effectively without chemical cleaning, steam injections, or other harsh methods. UVC rays disrupt the reproduction cycle of germs by attacking their DNA. It is a completely safe, environment-friendly, and efficient way to remove mould, viruses, bacteria, and fungi from coils and drain pan surfaces of air handling units.
Some businesses are planning to bring back only a portion of workers to the office or are instituting shifts to allow for social distancing. However, this may not mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus in airconditioned spaces. Installation of germicidal UV light for HVAC will definitely curb the spread of the Coronaviruses. Airborne contamination comes from a variety of sources and circulates majorly through the HVAC system. In-duct ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) systems treat moving airstreams in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning(HVAC) systems by inactivating airborne microorganisms found within. Airborne transmission of diseases through HVAC systems is much more prevalent nowadays than previously encountered.
Alfaa UV’s ULTRACOIL ensures deep cleaning of coils in the safest and most eco-friendly way. There is no worry about the damaging of coils, which is highly likely with conventional chemical and scrubbing methods. The Ultracoil with its unique Parabolic Reflector System proactively removes the bio-films (layer of slimy, sticky substance that houses the bacteria, viruses, mould, spores, etc.), thus ensuring that the air does not get contaminated through the coil and drain pans.
Installing a proper UVGI air disinfection system in front of the coil kills such microorganisms and viruses (Coronaviruses as well), hence disallowing the formation of a biofilm. A clean coil decreases the pressure drop across itself, which results in the following;

Alfaa UV’s ULTRADUCT solution provides assured single pass disinfection of airborne bacteria and viruses. It is installed in supply or return ducts. The Ultraduct also increases the life of HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) by reducing the load of live organisms. There are various benefits of installing ULTRADUCT in HVAC systems, some of which are listed below:
