UV Lights for HVAC Systems

Most people don’t realize that UV lights are incredibly effective in killing bacteria, viruses and mold. Because of that, UV technology works great in HVAC systems to prevent the build-up and spread of mold and bacteria in homes. This can be especially important for people living with respiratory illnesses such as asthma and COPD.

UV light can also prevent odours from infiltrating your home, and prevent the drains inside your AC unit and furnace from clogging and causing damage to your home. But don’t just take our word for it: In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center found that using UV lights killed 97% of drug-resistant bacteria (sometimes called superbugs) in hospital rooms.

The two types of UV lights for HVAC are coil sanitizing and air sanitizing lights. Coil lights are for central AC systems, where bacteria build up around the AC coils. The light then kills the germs with every AC cycle. Air sanitizing lights are installed in the return ducts, cleaning the air before it goes back into your system. They can be coordinated to turn on and off with the blower and as such can cost a little more for installation.

If you’re interested in having UV lights installed in your HVAC system, don’t hesitate to call us at 905-243-2355 where we can provide more information on our pricing and how UV lights can be effective in your home.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

I would recommend KDM for sure

May 26, 2020

Dan was very friendly and polite from the start. Did exactly the work that we talked about on the phone, and was very quick making a late evening call on a Sunday. Tested all the joints and even painted the gas lines. I would recommend him for sure.

I would recommend KDM for any of the services they provide

I had a 2nd hand pool heater hooked up and needed help getting it fired up. So I contacted Dan at KDM to see if they could help and was pleased he could make it over within a couple of days. He checked out the gas piping for leaks and proceeded to analyze the components of the control system and determined a faulty pressure switch was likely preventing operation. I was able to source the part and Dan was able to make a 2nd call within a day to install and complete the job. So in summary, I would recommend KDM for any of the services they provide.

I would not hesitate to hire Daniel and his crew again

May 26, 2020

Asked for quotes on a A/C and furnace after 17 years when the A/C unit broke down. I contacted a few HVAC contractors including KDM. Daniel could not have been more helpful and responsive and after reviewing the quotes decided to hire him for the job. Could no have made a better choice. Daniel was patient and upfront and answered all my questions when asked. He upgraded my A/C unit for the same price after the original unit we agreed upon was back ordered. The crew came when they said they would an completed the installation in a timely and orderly fashion.

I would not hesitate to hire Daniel and his crew again. In fact he is coming back to deal with another issue I have next month!

Job well done.

I definitely recommend KDM Home & gas for others

May 26, 2020

I was looking for someone who can do the gas line connection on a weekend and I found the right guys with KDM Home & Gas. Daniel came on Sunday morning to do the work. He installed the new gas line, connected the new gas stove, confirmed no leaks and ensured everything works fine. It was a really hot day outside but he did an excellent job.
