My brother has always been a pretty big proponent of keeping the indoor air quality in his apartment at the highest possible levels.
He never lets smoke or air fresheners or even grease from cooking get into the ventilation system in his dwelling. He’s always undoubtedly careful about what contaminants come into contact with his Heating & A/C appliance, & he swears by the UV air purifier that he has connected to his heating & cooling appliance… I have to admit that his youngsters are hardly ever sick with any sort of respiratory concerns like mine are. I asked him about his UV air purification system & he told me all of the weird reasons that it works so well for him & his family. I always had my doubts that a UV air purifier would even do anything however he has easily changed my mind. Apparently, numerous scientific studies have shown that the UV light used in UV air purifiers effectively eliminates pathogens in the air such as viruses, bacteria, pollens, or other pollutants. My brother told me that the reason he prefers using UV light air purifiers instead of any other kind is because this type of purifier kills the pathogens instead of actually trapping them. I absolutely adore the sound of that! I mean, if there is a virus trying to get into our ventilation system & make our family completely sick, I would rather just destroy it than attempt to trap it within a HEPA filter. I would really still be hesitant about the effectiveness of a UV light air purification system if I hadn’t seen one work so well at my brother’s dwelling!
