Keep Your HVAC System and Home Air Clean and Safe
Mold and mildew are potent dangers to your respiratory system. At home, they can quickly grow in any area that is frequently damp. For example, your air conditioner unit often creates condensation that builds up on its evaporator coils. Over time, this dampness can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. Some individuals may become sick as mold spores spread through the air. Others may see an increase in allergies as the HVAC system forcibly blows this disease-ridden air throughout the home or building.
Blackburn Basement Systems of South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming, which is a part of the National Radon Defense network, combats this problem with the Breathe EZ UVC Light. This simple solution can get rid of dangerous mold and mildew while creating healthier indoor air.

The Breathe EZ UVC Light
UVC light is a very specific wavelength of light naturally made by the sun. To make this light without the help of the sun, one must fill a glass tube vacuum with argon and keep this gas below normal atmospheric pressure. Next, mercury is added, and the mixture is energized. The excited electrons create a glow that can be seen through the mercury vapor.
One of the most important benefits of UVC light is its ability to kill certain harmful microorganisms. Microorganisms absorb UVC light, which destroys the interior of the cell. This is done by destroying the cell’s DNA, a process which takes far less than a second. Once the DNA can no longer provide life-sustaining instructions to the cell, it dies or becomes unable to replicate itself. The microorganism can no longer cause harm.
UVC light is both quick and effective. It can kill bacteria as well as mold in seconds, and it boasts a 99.99% success rate. Plus, it provides these great results without the use of chemicals, which not only are quite costly but also create numerous side effects in certain individuals.
The Problems with Mold in HVAC Systems
While mold certainly causes numerous issues with the quality of the air you breathe, it also causes problems for your expensive HVAC system. Over time, mold can destroy the system, causing it to become clogged or to break down. Because mold and mildew naturally grow in damp conditions, it is nearly impossible to keep them from growing in your heating and cooling system.
The Breathe EZ UVC Light is an excellent choice for removing mold from a heating and cooling system and for creating fresher, safer air. Our Blackburn Basement Systems technicians who are trained through the National Radon Defense network provide quick installations of this health-improving light.
The Benefits of Limiting Indoor Ozone
Although ozone-producing air quality products are frequently promoted and installed by numerous contractors these days, the National Radon Defense network and Blackburn Basement Systems refuses to take part in this. Ozone is simply not a safe gas to have indoors even though these generators are marketed as healthy devices. Sold either as personal wearables, portable units or in-system units designed for HVAC systems, ozone generators are said to purify the air as they create activated oxygen.
Although promoters say that ozone generators only give off carbon dioxide, water and oxygen, independent studies show a different story. These generators do not work effectively at removing pollutants in the air or providing health benefits. In fact, they may actually create byproducts that irritate mucosa in the eyes and nose and that cause respiratory symptoms. Consumer Reports, the American Lung Association and the Environmental Protection Agency have all stated that they stand against ozone generators.
