Benefits of UV Lighting and Bipolar Ionization

As you gradually re-enter the “traditional” work environment, there are many ways to improve the air quality in your workplace.  Here are two options that Hardy Services can install for you and your employees.

UV Lighting:

UV lights are effective and work in a specific range. They are known to kill organic growth, such as mold or bacteria. In most cases, the UV light will be installed near the coils to help prevent mold or bacterial growth as air passes through your unit. Since the air passes through the coils, this also kills growth in the air. UV lights are particularly effective in humid climates, where evaporator coils can easily get wet.

Benefits of UV Lighting:

  • Destroys airborne microorganisms
  • Restores airflow levels to original specifications
  • Improves indoor air quality

Bipolar Ionization:

Bipo­lar Ion­iza­tion is a process in which the decom­po­si­tion of gas mol­e­cules into atoms is affected by the aid of high energy sources. The nat­ural source for this high energy is UV solar radi­a­tion and soil radioac­tiv­ity. This decom­po­si­tion process assures that there will always be bipo­lar Air Ions (AI) within the breath­able atmos­phere in our nat­ural envi­ron­ment. Unfortunately, in an enclosed, indoor envi­ron­ment, ions may not exist at all.

Benefits of Bipolar Ionization:

  • Reduce dust and mold particles
  • Reduces odors
  • Reduces bacteria and viruses
  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Reduces static electricity
  • Reduces filter changes
  • Safe and environmentally friendly
