Undoubtedly, you are concerned about the potential adverse health risks of Coronavirus. It is without saying, the coronavirus outbreak is beyond scary and can have serious implications on yours and your family’s health. Government, sports, entertainment, schools and most other areas of our lives have taken steps to protect all of us from the potential dangers of COVID-19.
There are obviously many steps that you should take to reduce the risk of the contracting coronavirus.
But what steps can you make in your own home?
One option is HVAC UV Light Air Purificaton Systems, Including APCO and Reme HALO UV Air Purifiers.
FreshAire, the makers of APCO UV Light Purification Systems put out the following statement about coronavirus and the APCO Air Purification System.
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 99.999996% 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 the air as it circulates through the ventilation system. UV dosage for log reduction is measured in several ways including microwatts per second/centimetres2 (μWs/cm2).
Every microorganism, including coronavirus, requires a specific UVC dosage for inactivation. 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 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.”
