Sirair Unity Intelligent Inverter Midwall Split Airconditioner- UVC
Are you trying to decide what kind of air conditioner to buy? Perhaps Sirair’s Unity Edition is the best choice and here’s why
What is UV-C?
UV light comprises a segment of the electromagnetic spectrum between 100 and 400 nm, corresponding to photon energies from 3 to 124 eV. The UV segment has four wavelengths, labeled: UV-A (400 to 315 nm); UV-B (315 to 280 nm); very high energy and destructive UV-C (280 to 200 nm); and vacuum UV (200 to 100 nm).
UVC’s germicidal or germ-killing effects are well proven. The 253.7 nm electromagnetic waveform is well absorbed by DNA and RNA (the genetic code for all lifeforms), changing its structure. This damage inhibits the ability of the affected cells to reproduce, meaning that they cannot infect and are no longer dangerous.
How does it affect germs?
Microorganisms are simple organic structures that readily absorb the UVC wavelength, causing photo-disassociation (destruction). A microbe’s DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid, is first to be adversely affected due to its weaker molecular bonds.
In hundredths of a second, it suffers irreparable damage. The subsequent loss of genetic instructions causes cell death and/or the inability to replicate, rendering them harmless. Continuous exposure causes uninterrupted degradation, such as the sun does, only significantly faster.
Benefits of UVC in airconditiong
- Increased Airflow
When it comes to keeping your home cool without putting excess strain on your air conditioning system, airflow is one of the most important factors. As time goes on, debris builds up within your system, and although the air filter works to trap some of these particles, it can only do so much. Adding a UV light can give your system a serious boost, ensuring optimal airflow.
- Improved Efficiency
Airflow is hindered by accumulated microorganisms on the HVAC coil. To remedy this, you might be required to run the system for an extended period to achieve the desired temperatures. UV lights on your coil help destroy the microorganisms that slow down smooth airflow.
- Decrease Energy Costs
Increased airflow and improved efficiency go hand-in-hand with decreased energy costs. When your air conditioning system works efficiently, it requires less energy to operate.
- Kills Mold and Bacteria
Air conditioning systems are great at keeping your home cool and comfortable. But it’s almost impossible for air conditioning systems to remain dry internally. Add a humid climate then you have a recipe for mold and bacteria. UV light significantly reduces microbes on the coils within your system. The microbes are incapacitated before they can ever become airborne, reducing the risk of mold and other bacteria infiltrating the rooms in your home.
- Remove VOCs
Volatile organic compounds are all around us and include both human-made and naturally occurring compounds. VOCs have a direct impact on the quality of the air in your home, which means they have an impact on your health too. With the added benefits of UV light, you can seriously reduce the amount of VOCs in your home.
