As your air passes through the ductwork, a UV light bulb destroys the mildew, mold or bacteria that are travelling within your air. It does at a cellular level, so that it prevents such particles from reproducing. While it cannot remove a serious mold issue on its own, it’s an excellent means of preventing such issues.
