The CDC/EPA, reports that viruses like Sars-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, are spread through large respiratory aerosols that can land on surfaces and smaller aerosols that can stay suspended in the air from a few hours to over a day. The CDC encourages us to follow their guidelines by social distancing, washing hands, and cleaning household surfaces to reduce the impact of these larger aerosols. Epidemiologists, pulmonologists, and other medical experts also suggest that you be proactive in protecting the air space in your home from these smaller airborne viral aerosols.
Your HVAC system recirculates all the air in your home 3 – 10 times an hour, redistributing air that can carry these smaller respiratory aerosols. This makes your ductwork the perfect location to install a StratosAire Sterile Sweep® UVC System to disinfect your air space 24 hours a day; naturally and without adding any chemicals, sprays, ions, or gases to the air that you breathe.
For decades, independent lab studies have shown that the power of the UVC energy will inactivate surface and airborne bacteria and viruses like MERS, SARS, influenza, tuberculosis, coronaviruses, and now Sars-CoV-2. The StratosAire Sterile Sweep UVC System is 330% more powerful than standard residential UVC lights and will inactivate viruses and bacteria including the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus and other harmful pathogens that move past it in the HVAC ductwork. According to the American Journal of Infection Control, it takes 1,048 microwatts to inactivate the Sars-CoV-2 virus. The StratosAire Sterile Sweep produces 1,500 – 22,860 microwatts from 13 inches to 1 inch away from the lamp which gives it a large 26” complete inactivation zone around the lamp within the ductwork. To inactivate viruses, including Sars-CoV-2, ASHRAE standards call for a 24-inch irradiation zone at a minimum of 1,500 microwatts. Sterile Sweep UV systems exceed these standards!
