How UVGI Can Be Used In HVAC Coils and Ducts to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Posted on November 9, 2020 How UVGI Can Be Used In HVAC Coils and Ducts to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Research has shown that places like shopping malls, hospitals, commercial spaces, IT Parks, food courts, and schools are exposed to unhealthy environments, which can heighten health issues including congestion, headaches, upper respiratory ailments, flu, and the novel coronavirus which is responsible for the COVID -19 pandemic.  Hence, it is important to not only purify the indoor air but also to completely decontaminate the harmful pathogens present in it. As our country is trying to come to terms with the ‘new normal’ as the result of the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, there is a greater need for technologies that will equip us to protect ourselves.

Why we need UVGI Solutions

Ultraviolet light has shown great promise in providing effective disinfection of air and surfaces. In response to the outbreak, governments and companies across the world are taking to several sanitation practices including a solution that has been in use for decades for effective disinfection – Ultraviolet (UV) light. Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) is one such technique that has been effectively used to reduce airborne pathogens in healthcare environments. With this technique, light in the 250nm to 280nm wavelength range (also referred to as the UVC range) disrupts the DNA of harmful microorganisms and renders them incapable of multiplying, thereby eliminating the spread of infection. Used in HVAC systems, UVGI disinfection is capable of reducing pathogens significantly to improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).

Advantages of using UltraCoil and UltraDuct by Alfaa UV

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, etc.), thus ensuring that the air does not get contaminated through the coil and drain pans. Alfaa UV’s ULTRADUCT solution provides assured single pass disinfection of airborne bacteria and viruses. It is installed in supply or return ducts. TheUltraduct also increases the life of HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) by reducing the load of live organisms. There are various benefits of installing UltraCoil and UltraDuct in HVAC systems, some of which are listed below:

  1. Improved Airflow

It reduces contaminants built up in your system’s ductwork; thus, the heat exchange and airflow are both dramatically improved. Improved airflow reduces your premise’s energy use, enhances air quality, and reduces maintenance costs over the life of your HVAC system.

  1. Energy Efficiency

UV returns the heating and cooling system’s performance to optimal levels, reducing its power consumption, and helping it work like new. With the addition of UVGI and regular maintenance, we can keep your system in excellent condition over a longer period of time.

  1. Low-Cost Investment for Your System

UVGI installations are a cost-effective investment because they keep your system clean and you don’t have to spend a lot of money. We will have to evaluate your area and your HVAC system to determine if the UVGI system is compatible with your setup. There are a few parameters we’ll need to consider.

  1. Reducing Illnesses and Diseases

An HVAC system is designed to circulate air throughout the building. The downside is that it can also distribute a variety of airborne bacteria and viruses. UV lights help reduce disease transmission by destroying pathogens and other microorganisms that would usually thrive in an HVAC system.
