Eliminate Viruses, Bacteria and Other Micro-Organisms in Your Home


There are several things you can do to reduce the risk of coronavirus infection in your home.

According to a study conducted by the EPA, UV-C LED technology is able to kill any kind of bacteria or virus. We don’t know the specific UV-C dosage necessary to kill the coronavirus, but viruses are easy to eliminate in general. Sterilization of most viruses and bacteria will occur at the 1000 microwatt range.

How It Works

There are three demonstrated methods of controlling airborne infection that has proven results: ventilation, particle filtration and UV.


Any air cleaner that removes particles from the air has some potential to reduce exposure to coronavirus. How effective do filters need to be in order to significantly reduce the likelihood of infection via airborne transmission?

HEPA filters are 99.97 percent effective at trapping particles down to 0.3 microns in size. However, like many viruses, coronavirus is very small, measuring between 0.06 and 0.14 microns in size. HEPA filters will have some level of effectiveness, but not 100%.

Ultra Violet

UV disinfection systems for HVAC complement well with conventional filtration because it addresses the micro-organisms that are small enough to pass through filters as discussed above.

Many people ask “how can UV light kill bacteria?” With the right intensity and contact time, germicidal UV lights can kill viruses, bacteria, and other micro-organisms. A non-chemical approach to disinfection, UV technology makes this process simple, inexpensive and requires very little maintenance. 

An air purifier circulates the air several times per hour, cleaning the air. Air purifiers can help remove harmful airborne germs, including viruses, dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander, and smoke particles. Kill ratios up to 99.9 percent on a first-pass basis have been modeled, and concentrations are further reduced each time the air circulates.

How We Can Help

UV-C air purifiers, like the OXY3 air scrubber, are designed and calculated to produce a certain dosage of ultraviolet rays that eliminate viruses, bacteria and other micro-organisms in your home. Our air purification system will clean your air for less than $2 a day.

A purification system will:

  • Clean the toxic air in your home that circulates three times an hour
  • Reduce or eliminate colds, sinus infections and dry throats
  • Breathe cleaner, fresher and healthier air in your home
  • Reduce energy bills and equipment breakdowns
  • Extend the life of your home comfort system

Of course, risk reduction involves doing a number of different things including hygiene, being careful about touching your face, shaking hands with people, and washing your hands frequently.
