Introducing UVGI to combat COVID-19

Airborne pathogens, such as COVID-19 can spread through air systems.

A simple, yet effective way to improve building indoor air quality is through the application of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI). This energy efficient technology is a well proven solution for removing pollutants such as viruses and bacteria.

The CDC and ASHRAE recommend the use of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) as one of the effective technologies to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

We want our customers to be aware of the benefits of UVGI:

  • UV light is a proven solution for destroying microorganisms like viruses.
  • Where a high efficiency filter rack meets install challenges related to high pressure drop, a UVGI rack has a negligible pressure drop.
  • UV disinfection prevents biofilm accumulation, maximizing coil efficiency.
  • UV energy ensures clean coils, reducing costly coil cleaning maintenance and equipment down time.
  • Improves HVAC equipment energy efficiency.
  • Easy installation on new and existing equipment with minimal space required.

There are multiple types of UVGI system applications ranging from upper room disinfection, portable units, coil cleaning, and in-duct disinfection. 

If you or your team would like to learn more about UVGI or needs assistance in selecting and/or installing the best UVGI application for your facility, please reach out to us.
