There are a lot of different factors that go into making your indoor air quality what it is. One of the most common factors is airborne contaminants. These are things like pollen, dander, germs, or mold spores, all of which can have pretty nasty effects on your health and comfort. Of all the various airborne contaminants that may affect you, though, it’s the biological ones that are typically the worst. Viruses, bacteria, and mold can infect you, causing all kinds of illnesses ranging in severity from the minor to the life-threatening. If you often find yourself getting sick throughout the year, it might be at least partially because of the presence of these kinds of contaminants.
The best way to deal with bio-infectious contaminants in your home is to install an air purifier.

How Ultraviolet Air Purification Works
Think of a UV air purifier as a large light bulb, except it gives off ultraviolet light. Using light to combat germs may not seem like an effective way to deal with things, but it’s actually quite successful at eliminating certain types of contamination.
Many kinds of germs and mold spores cannot withstand high levels of UV light. Exposure to that much of it will either kill them outright, or prevent them from spreading. This makes it impossible for those organisms to infect you and make you sick. Sunlight really is the best disinfectant sometimes, as the saying goes. UV air purifiers are installed at a central point in the ducts, so that all air that flows through them is purified before it reaches you.
When to Consider Installing a UV Air Purifier
As we mentioned above, UV purifiers are best suited for people who find themselves getting sick often. Those with compromised immune systems definitely have the greatest need for UV air purifiers. Even if you just find yourself coming down with a cold or flu often, though, you should consider having one installed. It’s a small price to pay to stay healthier throughout the year, after all.
