Germicidal UV Air Cleaner
We are constantly looking for the best ways to promote the health and safety of your pup.
The latest additions to the facility are three (3) White-Rodgers ComfortPlus Dual Lamp 120-watt Germicidal Ultra Violet 200 (UV200) units like the one shown below. There is one UV200 unit installed in the return air line of each of the three (3) Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) roof-top units that condition our facility. Your pets will not be exposed to any UV light, since the units are located in the ceiling. The units are set to continuously filter 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
The following information, from a supplier’s website, explains what the system is and how it works:
“Designed to help disinfect the internal surfaces of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. Bacteria and viruses that are in the air stream that passes through the system will be reduced. Reduces or prevents mold growth on HVAC coils, allowing them to operate at peak efficiency. Additionally, the UV system greatly reduces bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeasts.
Each UV200 bulb provides a powerful 60 watts (total 120 watt) of air purification.
The White-Rodgers UV Light is a remarkably effective means of arresting bacterial growth. The unit emits a germicidal ultraviolet frequency that penetrates the cell walls of detrimental microbes, permanently neutralizing any ill effects. Additionally, better health isn’t the sole benefit. When mold or similar microbes are reduced, air conditioner efficiency often improves, saving on operating costs.”*
While this system cannot fully prevent airborne illnesses, by adding this system, Social Pet has one of the most comprehensive cleaning processes in our industry. This is another way we are working hard to keep your pup as healthy as possible.
