UV Germicidal Lights

Stop Viruses, Mold and Bacteria with UV-C light and Improve System Efficiency

Would you like to improve the air quality in your home?  According to the EPA, the air we breathe in our homes is often 2-5 times more polluted than the air outside, and an EPA study has determined that poor indoor air quality is one of the top 5 risks to public health.  When you consider how long many of us in Chicagoland keep our doors and windows closed during the frigid winters and hot summers, it is easy to see how recirculated air gets contaminated.

Additionally, newer insulation building standards, are resulting in tighter homes that breathe less than drafty older homes.  While air filters can prevent larger particles from recirculating in a home, only UV-C germicidal light can kill micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, mold, and more.  Additionally, air purifiers, such as the APCO-X, neutralize odors and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  Let one of Al’s service professionals discuss the benefits of installing an APCO-X air treatment system.

Benefits of APCO-X Germicidal UV Lights

Safe Operation

UV-C light will not add contaminants to the air as it cleans.  Many air purifiers create ozone, which is a known lung irritant.  The same chemical properties that allow ozone to react with organic material outside the body give it the ability to react with organic material in the body.  UV-C light is ozone-free and chemical-free making it safe for your home.  The APCO-X is validated Ozone free by Underwriters Laboratories. 

Air Quality & Odor Control

APCO-X utilizes their proprietary EverCarbon cells in conjunction with UV-C light to safely reduce odor-causing VOCs and to sterilize biological contaminants and eliminate mold growth on the evaporator coil.

Energy Efficient

The UV-C light inhibits the growth of mold and other contaminants on the evaporator coil resulting in unobstructed airflow and more efficient transfer of BTUs across the evaporator coil. 

Limited Maintenance

The APCO-X features a 3 year UV-C lamp and requires no additional regular maintenance after installation.
