Fresh-Aire UV

UV Disinfection: A Proven Technology

Reduce Energy Consumption

According to the 2012 ASHRAE Handbook, through the use of UV-C, heat transfer and airflow are restored which results in energy savings, with the possibility of payback in less than two years.

Reduce Maintenance & Cleaning

Per the 2012 ASHRAE Handbook, chemical and mechanical cleaning of air conditioning coils and drain pans can be costly, dangerous, and even difficult. Applying UV-C light can help maintain system cleanliness by keeping surfaces free of microbial contamination.

Eliminate Mold, Bacteria & Viruses in the HVAC System

Maintain Peak System Efficiency

As stated by the 2012 ASHRAE Handbook, UV-C light makes it easy to maintain heat exchange efficiency, design airflow and to improve indoor air quality.

Cut Airborne Biohazards
