UVGI for HVAC Systems
Aerapy UV equipment for HVAC systems or air handler units (AHU) is designed to fit into any new or existing HVAC (indoor split system). Our in-duct UV utilizes short-wavelength UV-C light to kill or inactivate pathogens in the air by disrupting their DNA and destroying their cellular function, causing the death of the microorganisms and/or rendering them helpless. Constant exposure of UV-C germicidal energy with moderate air circulation will help to effectively sanitize pathogens in the air stream. Aerapy PAH systems are for air handling units. Our patented PPR systems are for packaged rooftop units.
How Does UV for HVAC Work?
Airborne pathogens can circulate throughout your HVAC system and remain infectious for significant periods of time. With Aerapy UV equipment installed, as air enters your air intakes it passes through our in-duct UV systems that neutralize both coil surface and airborne mold, viruses, bacteria, and other harmful microorganisms before they circulate throughout your indoor environment.
Energy and Maintenance Savings
Aerapy UV equipment, when professionally installed, breaks down and clears away biofilm and mold that builds up on coils, drain pans, plenums, and ducts. This can reduce pressure drop and improve heat transfer, increasing cooling capacity and ultimately lowering your energy cost. Moreover, Aerapy UV for HVAC eliminates the need for yearly coil cleaning. As long as UV bulbs are changed, as specified in your Aerapy UV manual, coils remain clean and the need for additional maintenance cost is eliminated.
