Do UV Air Purifiers Really Work To Kill Germs?

Germs and bacteria floating around an air vent.

We’ve all heard of air purifiers, but do they work? Can they really kill germs in your house? You’ve come to the right place. Take a look at how an air purifier with UV light, like the Reme Halo® Whole Home In-Duct Air Purifier, can work to improve your indoor air quality.

What’s in the Air in Your Home?

Our homes are full of all kinds of pollutants, including airborne particles. The most common include mold, dust, mites, dander, and pollen. But there’s more. You’ll also find dangerous germs, including bacteria, viruses, and mold spores.

How Does a UV Light Air Purifier Work?

In the 1800s, scientists discovered the antibacterial properties of the UV light that comes from the sun. Now we can use the same type of light to kill the germs in your home. The electromagnetic energy produced by the UV light causes damage to the cells in the pollutants. This leads to their inability to reproduce or mutate, and the pollutants are removed from your home’s air.

Do UV Light Air Purifiers Work to Kill Germs in Your Home?

UV light can kill the germs in your home if the purification system is strong enough. Unfortunately, some systems don’t have the capacity to or strength to get rid of the germs. The REME-HALO air purifier is one of the exceptions. This system uses UV light technology in addition to producing low levels of hydrogen peroxide to clean the air in your home, leaving you with vastly improved indoor air quality.
