At 42 Mechanical, we understand the importance of clean and healthy air in your home or business. That's why we offer indoor air quality services to help you breathe easier.

Most people think about filters, which is an important part of air quality. But what most business and home owners don't know, is that mold and mildew are already growing in your system.

Installing UV lights is a critical step to eliminating mold and mildew from your home or workplace.

Ultraviolet (UV) lights can be added to HVAC systems to improve air quality and fight allergies. UV lights can be installed in the evaporator coil or ductwork near the coil. They work by killing bacteria, mold, and mildew so they don't become airborne and circulate throughout your home. UV lights can also reduce odors and prevent algae growth.

UV lights use UVC rays, which have the highest energy of the three types of UV radiation. UVC rays are the only rays powerful enough to kill microscopic germs. It only takes 10 seconds of contact for UV lights to deactivate the DNA of these germs, killing them or preventing them from replicating.

UV lights can also increase the efficiency of your HVAC system. They clean the coils and air that passes through the system. This can improve cooling efficiency and reduce electricity costs. UV lights don't use a lot of electricity. On average, it costs about 7 cents per day to operate a germicidal UV lamp inside your HVAC system.

By installing an HVAC UV light, you can eliminate mold and mildew, kill viruses and bacteria, and reduce odors.

Our team of experts can assess your indoor air quality and provide solutions like a UV light to help remove pollutants and allergens. We also offer preventative maintenance contracts that can include keeping air filters changed and effectively cleaning the air.

With 42, you can trust that we prioritize your health and comfort by providing top-notch indoor air quality services to ensure that your HVAC system is operating efficiently and circulating clean air.
