Enjoy Fresh Air All The Time

According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times – and occasionally more than 100 times – higher than outdoor pollutant levels. Indoor air pollutants have been ranked among the top five environmental risks to public health. Enjoy fresh air all the time.

Germ-Killing Power of UV-C Light

For over a century scientists have known about the germ-killing properties of UV-C light. Because this frequency of light is filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere microorganisms have no defense against it. It works by scrambling their DNA which prevents them from reproducing.

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a range of light frequencies that are mostly invisible to the human eye. The UV-C band is most effective at killing germs because its short wavelength is able to penetrate the cell walls of microorganisms and scramble their DNA. Also, UV-C is filtered out by the earth’s atmosphere so microbes have no defense against it.

DNA Scramble

Microbes Have No Defense These lights are effective because microbes have no defense against C-band ultraviolet light (UV-C) which is not present in daylight (it’s filtered out by the atmosphere). UV-C light sterilizes germs by penetrating their cell walls and scrambling the DNA inside leaving them incapable of reproduction.

Fighting Infectious Diseases with
UVGI Disinfection of HVAC Systems

Airborne Infectious Diseases Infectious diseases such as Ebola, SARS, and MRSA, are a growing concern for medical facilities. According to the CDC, UVGI (Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation) is an effective tool in reducing the transmission of airborne bacterial and viral infections in hospitals, military housing, and classrooms as a supplemental air cleaning measure along with HEPA filters.

Proven Effective

In the past UV light has been shown to be effective against influenza strains (including ‘bird’ flu and H1N1 ‘swine’ flu) as well as SARS, legionella, TB, pneumonia, German measles, and many other airborne infectious diseases.

Clean Coils

Mold thrives in the cool, moist interior of the central air system. UV-C light is proven effective at sterilizing mold and other biological contaminants. Moldy coils shorten the life of the air system and waste energy by reducing efficiency. UV-C light kills the mold and reduces the need for system maintenance.

Indoor Air Quality Products for Home & Business

We offer the world’s best whole-house UV light and activated carbon air purifiers. These products clean the air throughout your home or business because they are installed directly inside your central air system. Microbes and odors are eliminated as air cycles repeatedly through the system

Residential & Commercial

We all need clean air to be healthy and thrive. According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outside air. Fresh-Aire UV products protect your family or business, extend the life of your air system, and reduce energy and maintenance costs. Please see the tabs below for both Residential and Commercial systems.

BLUE – TUBE UV

Most Popular Air Conditioning / HVAC UV Light

Blue-Tube UV is the world’s most popular germicidal UV light product for air conditioning / HVAC systems. Homeowners breathe easy knowing that the air their family is breathing is protected by this proven technology. Blue-Tube UV is the affordable, simple, safe and effective way to keep your a/c clean and improve your indoor air quality.

Blue-Tube UV features a number of patented innovations from Fresh-Aire UV. The original low-voltage UV light kit for HVAC has been updated to include a magnetic mounting bracket and now has a 110-277 VAC high-voltage power supply option. Choose one or two year lamps.

How Blue-Tube UV® Works

Blue-Tube UV is installed in the air conditioning / HVAC system where it works continuously to fight mold and other biological contaminants in the air and on air conditioning system interior surfaces, particularly the cooling coil. For over a century scientists have known that certain frequencies of light have a devastating effect on microbial life. We now know that exposure to ultraviolet light in the range of 254 NM (UV-C band) disrupts the DNA of micro-organisms thus preventing them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.

Purity Low Profile (PLP)

1” Polarized HVAC Filtration System

Conventional HVAC filters only capture the largest particles. Unfortunately, it’s the fine particulates that are the greater threat. There are costly filter systems on the market which capture fine particles but they require expensive retrofitting and tend to restrict air-flow, which increases static pressure resulting in reduced HVAC efficiency and energy loss.

The Fresh-Aire UV® Purity Low Profile Polarized Filtration System (PLP) offers relief from particulate indoor air pollution. It is the perfect retrofit to replace your HVAC filter with a high efficiency whole-house air filtration system.
• UV-reactive filter media with Goldshield™ antimicrobial nanotechnology
• Captures particulates, allergens, pet dander, dust mites, spores, etc.
• 97% effective capturing particles down to .3 microns (.00001 inch)
• Low-cost media replacement (*3-6 months on average)
• Fits standard 1” filter slot
• Lifetime system warranty

PLP Media

Purity Low Profile filter media is designed to be easy to install. Each replacement pack comes with two collector pads. Just power down the system, open the frame and replace the pad by sliding it onto the electrode.

Indoor Air Pollution

Indoor air pollution divides roughly into thirds. PLP captures particulates like a conventional filter, only much more efficiently. PLP is equivalent to a MERV 13 filter while typical conventional filters are rated at 6-8 MERV. Conventional MERV 13 filters are notorious for restricting air-flow but PLP avoids this problem by attracting particulates with an electronically charged pad.

Combine PLP with other Fresh-Aire UV products such as APCO and Blue-Tube UV for a comprehensive IAQ solution.
