Commercial UV Air Purifiers in Chicago
Your commercial heating and cooling system is vital for maintaining a comfortable building. However, the air circulating through the ductwork carries contaminants that can degrade indoor air quality. One simple way to combat this is to install UV lighting in the HVAC system. By assisting with your upgrade to this unique technology, Murphy & Miller can help you improve the air quality in your Chicago business.

How Does UV Lighting Improve Indoor Air Quality?
High-output UV lights are specially designed for use in HVAC systems. These devices emit light on the ultraviolet spectrum, which inactivates mold, viruses, and bacteria. Inactivated microorganisms are unable to replicate, rendering them harmless because they can’t colonize. After exposure to the powerful germicidal effect of UV light, microbial contaminants die, leaving no offspring, so their population diminishes rapidly.
UV light systems are intended to be used alongside media air filters, which are designed to trap dirt, dust, and other non-living particles. Together, UV lights and air filters produce much cleaner indoor air.
Your employees and customers deserve to breathe clean air in your business! To learn more about UV lighting solutions, please contact Murphy & Miller.
Benefits of UV Light Air Purifiers
Consider the benefits of this indoor air cleaning method to help you decide if it’s the right solution for your Chicago business.
- Cleaner air: The top reason to install UV lights is to kill mold, viruses, and bacteria that cause health problems, especially for people with respiratory sensitivities. With the addition of a UV light system, you limit the spread of infectious diseases and reduce symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, sneezing, chest tightness, and nasal congestion.
- Energy savings: An efficient HVAC system relies on many things, including clean equipment and ductwork walls. Since UV lights help improve the cleanliness of everything within the HVAC system, including the all-important evaporator coil, the equipment runs more efficiently. In this way, UV lights help your system perform like new season after season.
- Dependable performance: HVAC systems generally require a thorough tune-up annually. A technician cleans every component and makes sure everything is working properly. Be aware that UV lights lose output over time, reaching their half-life after about one year, which is when change-out is recommended to maintain microbial control. Continue to schedule annual preventive maintenance, and UV lights will help everything stay cleaner to reduce the risk of breakdowns for years to come.
- Improved airflow: Dirty coils and a clogged air filter reduce the volume of air traveling through the ductwork. UV lights slow the dirtying process, so airflow remains ideal between maintenance visits. Proper airflow is essential to remove humidity and keep every room at the desired temperature.
