Do UV air filters work?

Yes, UV air filters really work. Extensive research has shown that UV-C light, within specific wavelengths and durations, effectively neutralizes viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungi by disrupting their DNA or RNA, rendering them unable to function or reproduce. UV light also aids in preventing secondary allergies caused by airborne allergens. However, not all UV air filters are created equal, and effectiveness varies. We only use UV filters that are engineered to deliver reliable performance and superior air purification.

We use UV filters that have undergone independent research studies and rigorous testing in certified labs endorsed by the EPA and FDA. The UV filter technology installed by Mainstream technicians has been scientifically proven to eradicate germs, bacteria, viruses, while also reducing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and odors. Through independent laboratory tests, Mainstream’s UV filters consistently disinfect the air and deactivate a broad spectrum of bacterial and viral pathogens, ensuring cleaner and healthier indoor air quality.
