How UV Lights Can Improve Air Quality

It’s flu season and the spread of germs is spread in so many different ways. Your home’s HVAC system can be a blessing or a curse when it comes to air purification. The transmission of the bacteria can be controlled or even accelerated from the air system. Basically, the same system that circulates the air can circulate this bacteria.

UV lights have been adapted for many uses such as sterilizing hospitals and also in food establishments with germicidal lamps. If this method is so effective, can it be used to help improve indoor air quality and kill the mold and bacteria?
