Why would you want to install a UV light?

UV lights significantly reduce the amount of microbes on surfaces, in ductwork, and other airspace. UV lights have the ability to kill viruses and bacteria throughout the home, schools, and the workplace.

The 1903 Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to Niels Finsen for his use of UV radiation against lupus vulgaris (by the way, a terrible skin infection). Using UV light to treat water dates back to 1916 in the USA. UV light is now used to treat drinking water, wastewater, hospitals, surfaces, and indoor air.

Today, there are many UVC light options. So, how do you know which one is best for you?

Hopefully, this guide will help.

Just the Facts – Quick Reference:

Match the effective area of the light to the area being sanitized.

Choose the correct light for the intended use, i.e. Light Duty or Commercial Grade.

Ozone enhancement provides the most thorough sterilization, and the light does not have to span every surface to be sterilized. However, it requires that the area remain ventilated and unoccupied for at least 30 minutes after the light goes out.

If you need to re-enter the area in less than 30 minutes, then choose a light without ozone enhancement. However, when ozone enhancement is not used, the light must span every surface to be sterilized.

Regardless of which light you choose, when the light is on, the area being sanitized must be unoccupied by people, pets, and plants; and remain unoccupied for at least 30 minutes after when using ozone enhancement.

For a more in-depth understanding, please read the following guide.

To know, which light is your best option, you need to answer a few questions first.

How big is the area that you are trying to sanitize?

This is straightforward. Each light (at least, our lights) has a maximum effective area listed, e.g. 1500 square feet. Just match this with the room or area that you need to sanitize.
