For over a century it has been proven that ultraviolet light kills germs. Today you see the usage of UV lights in various places and for various reasons. In the heating and cooling industry UV lights are being added to existing systems to kill bacteria, germs, and funguses that can be found in our air duct systems. 

Your HVAC system circulates the same air throughout your home over and over. What does that mean for you? It means that the bacteria, germs, and funguses just keep circulating over and over. Ultraviolet lights help kill germs by damaging their DNA.
