UVCBOX HVAC is specially designed to eliminate dangerous viruses and pathogens that are too small for regular HVAC filters to capture. HVAC Filters are not capable of removing small particles from the air such as coronavirus, influenza (flu) or rhinovirus (cold).
The problem is the filters themselves. Filters remove particles from the air such as dust, mold, pollen, dander and even some viruses but most dangerous virus particles are too small to be captured by filters. "Your typical HEPA filter is not going to be able to remove coronavirus from the air," said Dr. Erin Sorrell (Ph.D., M.Sc.), assistant professor of microbiology at Georgetown University. "The filter itself is .3 microns and the virus itself is roughly .1 microns." (.1Micron = 100 Nano-Meters)
In hospitals, the spread of airborne pathogens is prevented by disinfecting the air with UVC. Hospitals implemented the first overhead UVC system in 1936. Today, hospitals use UVC to sterilize operating rooms and disinfecting the air. Just like hospitals, UVCBOX HVAC uses UVC to sterilize the air in your ventilation system. UVCBOX HVAC is the best line of defense for your building covering any size ventilation systems from 1,000 to 500,000 square feet.
How it Works
UVCBOX HVAC is the first Plug and Play UVC system for HVAC. Your system does not need to be uprgraded or changed. UVCBOX HVAC can be installed by any certified technician safely and easily in under an hour!
Protects you, your coworkers and your customers.
Make coworkers and customers feel safe.
UVC is environmentally-friendly.
Plug and Play Easy Install.
UVC is chemical-free.
UVC is safe.
Protect yourself. HVAC can recirculate viruses in your building. Adding UVC to your HVAC will disinfect air from viruses such as COVID-19, flu, cold, ect.
HVAC is a system that moves air in your building. If a person with a virus breathes in one room that virus can travel to other rooms, exposing you hours or even days later. UVC Light installed in your HAVC disinfects the air before it recirculates back into the building.
The outside air and the air returning from the building contain VOC's, mold spores, viruses, bacteria and many other pollutants.
Filters trap particles 300nm or larger making them ineffective against tiny particles. UVC light kills all particle sizes including coronavirus which has a molecular size of 120nm - 160nm, the flu which is 80nm - 120nm and the common which is cold 30nm. Dangerous viruses and spores get trapped inside filters reproduce until they become airborne. UVC does not trap particles, instead it kills them, making the air safe to breathe.
Without UVC light contaminated air is recirculated back in to the building. UVC kills all pathogens making the air safe.
Stay healthy. UVC Light destroys a toxic biofilm that grows in your HVAC.
Biofilm is a slimy substance caused by a build-up of contaminants such as mold, bacteria and viruses which thrives in the damp environment of an HVAC system’s air handling unit. If left untreated, biofilm can present a threat to the health and wellbeing of building occupants while reducing the HVAC system’s efficiency. Applying UVC light to the cooling coil of an air handling unit destroys biofilm and returns performance to as-built at a fraction of the cost of a new HVAC system.
Save Money. UVC Light improves the efficiency of your HVAC system.
The installation of UVC technology from UVCBOX will significantly improve the overall efficiency of your HVAC system at home and in your workplace, leading to:
Improved control and maintenance of building temperature
Reduced running costs.
Lower CO2 emissions.
Improved air system hygiene.
Reduced corrosion leading to extended life of cooling coils.
Decreased maintenance of the chilled water pumps and chillers.
Running less chillers for the cooling load.
Lower chilled water flow rates.
Higher chilled water delta-T.
Compliance with the WELL Building Standard.
Studies Prove Effectiveness of UVC Inside HVAC Systems
Here are two studies that point to the effectiveness of UVC light in killing mold and bacteria, one in hospitals and the other in a commercial HVAC system.
Effectiveness of Germicidal UV Radiation for Reducing Fungal Contamination within Air Handling Units
In this commercial office building, and after 4 months of operation, “the fungal levels following UV operation were significantly lower than the levels in control AHUs (air handler units).”
Ultraviolet Light Effective in Hospital Infection Control
In 2012, Researchers at Duke University Medical Center used UVC to nearly eliminate drug-resistant bacteria in 50 hospital rooms, reducing the number of bacteria by more than 97%.
Business Recovery is Expected to Take up to 18 Months
Many economists, including the Federal Reserve chair, Jerome Powell, predict that a full recovery is not possible until 2021, if not later. Given that COVID-19 will likely be with us for some time and another new virus may catch us off guard in the future, it is worth investing into extra safety measures that will give your customers, clients, visitors and coworkers the confidence they need to come back. People wear masks and social distance because COVID-19 is airborne. UVCBOX Light will enable your existing HVAC to disinfect the air. When people see UVCBOX in your business they feel safe knowing that the air they share with others is clean. UVCBOX Light comes with a UVC Disinfecting Safe Zone Certificate.
Protect yours customers and coworkers. UVC stops the spread of viruses the way regular HVAC's can't.
After the installation there is a different atmosphere in the office. The staff knows we’re doing everything possible to keep everyone safe.
Could not be happier with this product. Obviously we can’t see it but we know it’s there and doing the job we need it to. Best silent coworker we have.
Love it just love it! Everyone feels much safer since we got it put in. Also the sign on the door helps customers know we mean business. Thank you very much!
