Fighting Infectious Diseases with UVGI Disinfection of HVAC Systems
Infectious diseases such as Ebola, SARS, and MRSA, are a growing concern for medical facilities. According to the CDC, UVGI (Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation) is an effective tool in reducing the transmission of airborne bacterial and viral infections in hospitals, military housing, and classrooms as a supplemental air cleaning measure along with HEPA filters.
Sterilize Airborne Pathogens with UVGI
An Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation or UVGI system (UV-C lights installed inside a building’s air handler and/or ducts) offers a proven and cost-effective method of sterilizing airborne pathogens. UVGI systems can also often pay for themselves by improving air system efficiency and reducing the costs of maintenance. They also generally improve indoor air quality for building occupants.
