Did you know that the air inside your home can be significantly more contaminated than the air right outside your window? That's because modern home insulation prevents any dust, pollen, mold spores, and other allergens that accumulate inside your home from escaping, and so they recirculate through your air system. With our products, though, you can breathe healthier air.
Four Important Topics to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home
Coronavirus: Fresh-Aire UV efficiency against viruses, bacteria & mold
Updated March 13, 2020
Fresh-Aire UV has been receiving inquiries regarding the effectiveness of UV disinfection systems against COVID-19 (coronavirus). We believe the best approach is to be as transparent as possible and to explain the fundamentals and variables that play a factor in inactivating coronavirus and other pathogens with UVC germicidal technologies.
Fresh-Aire UV systems are tested and validated against bacteria, viruses, mold & fungus. Fresh-Aire UV systems have been tested and achieve up to a *99.999% reduction on microorganisms. There are a number of factors that need to be addressed in order to determine efficiency. These include but not limited to: the application, such as surface or air disinfection, air velocity and temperature, recirculation rates, and dwell time, as well as the specific biological target. Fresh-Aire UV systems are installed in the HVAC unit and/or ductwork and are designed to disinfect surfaces and the air as it circulates through the ventilation system. UV dosage can be measured in several ways, including microwatts per second/centimetres2 (μWs/cm2).
Every microorganism requires a specific UVC dosage for inactivation, including coronavirus. UV disinfection has been employed for decades in water treatment; these microwatt values have been used for reference to gauge UVC efficiency against a large cross-section of microorganisms. While Fresh-Aire UV systems have not been specifically tested against coronavirus, they have been tested and proven effective against similar pathogens, some that require an even greater dosage for inactivation than coronavirus.
UV disinfection systems for room, surface & HVAC are an ideal proactive measure to complement filtration. Microorganisms, particularly viruses, are so small that filters are mostly ineffective. The UV systems have also been shown to reduce problematic molds and pathogens that are found within the HVAC system and drain pan that would otherwise be introduced and distributed throughout the envelope of the building.
