Ultraviolet germicidal lights are most commonly known for their use in hospitals to kill bacteria and viruses as well as to sterilize equipment. UV light, like radio waves and X-rays, is an invisible form of electromagnetic radiation that upon exposure, causes damage to a cell's structure. This cell-destroying capability is what makes UV lights so effective at killing pathogens and air impurities such as mold, mildew and bacteria.
UV light is a natural product of the sun. When people get sunburned, they suffer from radiation burns from a type of UV light that is emitted from the sun. The redness is an inflammatory response of the skin, when its DNA is damaged by UV radiation. Since bacteria is only made up of a single cell, it relies on that cell's DNA makeup to survive. If that cell is damaged and the DNA is disrupted, it'll either kill the cell or leave it inactive.
A UV germicidal light is typically paired with a forced air system for greatest overall impact. The light is installed inside the return air duct, so you will not see it or be exposed to it. As air makes its way through the duct and passes the UV light, it is sanitized.
Germicidal lights also kill germs, mold and fungi that may live in ductwork and inside your heating and cooling equipment. This helps keep your HVAC system clean and running at peak efficiency.

Jackson Comfort went above and beyond to get our tankless water heater installed before a holiday weekend so we would not be without hot water for 4 days. (We had come home from vacation to find our hot water heater toasted)
Jackson has been our HVAC service provider since 1984. They have always been courteous, timely, and knowledgeable. I strongly recommend them to any acquaintances to handle their A/C, heating needs.
