Poor air quality is something that plagues many homeowners. Pathogens in the air can exacerbate allergies or cause breathing issues which can lead to sickness. In the cooler months when the windows are mostly closed, pathogens in the air also make illness easier to pass around to everyone who lives under your roof. Your home is supposed to be your sanctuary, but reduced air quality can make it feel more like a doctor’s waiting room.
Fortunately, there’s an inexpensive and elegant solution to this problem: installing an ultraviolet air purifier. Keep reading to learn more about what an ultraviolet air purifier is and how you can use it to improve indoor air quality in your home.

The reality is that even if you don’t notice the signs, your home is statistically likely to have poor indoor air quality. Given that you spend a good portion of your life indoors, it’s where you sleep, relax, and spend time with your family; you need to do something about this issue. Ultraviolet air purifiers are one way that you can improve indoor air quality.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is one of the most effective ways of killing or deactivating harmful microorganism and improving air quality. While the word ultraviolet may give you some pause, rest assured that ultraviolet air purifiers are entirely safe for people and pets.
