Most people don’t know that ultra violet lights have been installed in the ductwork of hospitals for many decades. The reason is because ultraviolet light, specifically UVC, kills or neutralizes germs, bacteria & viruses. Most hospital applications are in the operating rooms areas and critical care units. They are also using portable UVC lights to put in the rooms of patients with super bugs like MRSA.
When you have a UVC light installed in your duct system the UVC light will kill or neutralize at least 98% of all airborne virus, germ & bacteria. When you have the air circulated through the system some of the virus, germ & bacteria may have to pass by the light 2-3 times before they are totally destroyed.
- I do want to be very clear that our lights have not been tested for COVID-19.
- COVID-19 might be killed or sterilized the same as other viruses, but that remains to be seen through proper testing.
What Makes Our Platinum and Platinum Plus UVC Light Superior?
Our Platinum & Platinum Plus Bioforce Defenders have the strongest light of all residential UV light systems. Westinghouse®, which is the company that developed UVC technology, has determined that 55 microwatts of UVC energy will kill germs, bacteria & viruses as long as the light can have a long dwell time on a stationary object.
Since the germs, bacteria & viruses are not stationary in the airflow our lights have 190 microwatts! Our bulbs are 3.3 times more powerful than standard lamps and will disinfect your 24 hours a day naturally, with adding chemicals or spray into your home. This is what is needed to get a good kill in the airstream. Also, our bulbs are about 16” long to be able to reach into the ductwork.
