As society and the economy gradually recover from the pandemic-led disruptions, building owners and facility managers are focusing on providing a safer environment as employees return to work. Surveys have shown that a large number of workers are still hesitant and uncertain about resuming operations from physical workspaces.
One of the most effective ways to protect building occupants against infection risks and restore their confidence is to implement advanced UV disinfection technology solutions at strategic areas within the building. The latest UVGI products from an experienced and trusted provider can mitigate the threat posed by viral spread and help achieve successful infectious disease control in commercial facilities.
Prioritizing Safety of Building Occupants
UV disinfection technology works well not only to kill harmful pathogens in the upper room (upper air) in offices, waiting areas, and common spaces, but also within the building’s HVAC systems. When the building owners invest in state-of-the-art UV systems and equipment, it demonstrates their commitment to prioritize the health and safety of the people returning to offices above all other considerations.
The science-backed UV disinfection technology is a dependable way to eliminate illness-causing microorganisms, such as viruses and bacteria in the indoor air. UV-C includes the most effective light wavelengths within the ultraviolet radiation spectrum that will target the DNA and RNA of the microbes to deactivate them and eliminate the possibility of replication.
Merely relying on the air filtration and ventilation systems in the building may not be enough to kill these microscopic, airborne biological contaminants. High-quality UVGI equipment is designed specifically to kill these microorganisms that may escape the conventional filters. UV disinfection technology can dramatically improve the building’s indoor air quality and help protect the health of the people returning to work.
Optimizing Operational Performance of the Building Systems
Strategic placement of the UV disinfection technology devices in the building’s HVAC system will enable the removal of the organic buildup and biofilm between the cooling coil surfaces. This provides for free airflow through cleaner coils, which not only creates better IAQ but also allows for energy conservation and lower maintenance costs because the system operates with reduced stress. Unlike the use of chemicals to clean the coils, UV-C releases no toxic fumes in the environment.
The life of the HVAC unit is enhanced as the UV disinfection technology continually works to improve equipment performance. Facility managers and building owners should consider these economic benefits in addition to the enormous reputational advantage they will gain by making their building safe for the occupants through UV devices.
UV Disinfection Technology for Upper Air and HVAC Systems
Aerapy’s upper room UVGI products are designed to utilize the power of UV-C along with the rising air currents (through natural convection) to destruct hazardous bio-aerosols and other pollutants in the upper portion of office indoor environments. These upper air UV solutions work to destroy bacteria, viruses, allergens, and mold in the air even in areas where no HVAC is installed. The UV-C disinfection technology also helps fight microorganisms that settle onto indoor surfaces from the air.
Aerapy offers advanced UV equipment for HVAC systems in buildings that can be fitted into any existing or new HVAC unit as well as AHUs (air handler units). The in-duct UV-C light devices will eliminate airborne pathogens by modifying their genetic material and causing cell death. Pathogens present in the air stream can be comprehensively neutralized through targeted germicidal UV-C exposure along with moderate airflow. Aerapy UV products have been independently tested to kill pathogens in one air pass.
