Although much of it is impossible to see, indoor air is filled with pollutants that can be dangerous to one's health as well as the health of his or her family. These pollutants include bacteria, viruses, molds, and other allergens that can cause problems such as lung irritation or worse. One way to eliminate these problems is to use an ultraviolet air purifier or filter. These types of systems use a filter in conjunction with a UV light. Together, the UV air filter makes indoor air cleaner and easier to breathe.
Ultraviolet air filters typically use HEPA air filters. A HEPA air filter is what is called a high-efficiency particulate air filter, which is extremely effective at removing fine particles from indoor air. It is the job of the HEPA to trap and remove contaminants and particles such as pollen, dust and dust mites, animal dander, smoke from tobacco, and mold spores. The particles that are removed by the ultraviolet air filter are often so tiny that they are beyond the eye's ability to see. A HEPA filter, by design, removes no less than 99.97% of undesired particles as small as 0.3 microns. UV air filters are able to trap these undesirable particles when they are forced through the filter's fine mesh. The filters of the ultraviolet air filters only do a part of the work, however. In addition, the UV air filter also requires the use of an ultraviolet light. The job of the ultraviolet light in UV air filters is to destroy bacteria and viruses that are in the air. With the filters and the lights working together, ultraviolet air filters are able to effectively purify the air.
The UV air filters will eventually need some of the components replaced. Ultraviolet air filter replacements are available in kits that include not only replacement filters, but also replacement ultraviolet lights. Purchasing a replacement filter is only an option if the current light does not require replacing. When buying an UV air filter replacement, it is important to purchase the correct filter for the specific unit in use. WaterFiltersFast.com has a number of ultraviolet air filter options to choose from.
