The C wavelength of the UV spectrum targets the DNA of microorganisms, destroying their cells and making replication impossible.

Directed at a cooling coil or drain pan, UVC energy destroys surface biofilm, a gluey matrix of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, debris, et al.) that grows in the presence of moisture. Biofilm is prevalent in HVAC systems and leads to a host of indoor air quality and HVAC operational problems. UVC also destroys airborne viruses and bacteria that circulate through an HVAC system.

By applying the power of UVC at the source of contamination we destroy the reservoir of microorganisms. When they can’t reproduce, microorganisms become inactive and harmless.

So everyone breathes easier.
Simply put, we deliver the highest UVC output, driving HVAC system efficiency while improving indoor air quality.
