Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI)

Architectural Fan Coil offers advanced "Clean Room" technology for indoor air quality, increased airstream health and comfort.

Our factory installed Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) system features high-output, hot cathode emitters producing UVGI of 254 nm that constantly irradiates the coil and drain pan surfaces. The system is designed for optimal placement and maximum effectiveness. Ultraviolet C band light has been proven effective in killing most bacteria, molds and viruses in both laboratory and applied applications. 
  • For pennies a day, UVGI can improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) by destroying mold, fungi and bacteria on coil and drain pan surfaces
  • Clean coil surfaces can maintain peak heat/cool transfer for near new performance and lower energy costs
  • Reduced coil and drain pan maintenance requirements and costs
  • Factory installation promotes proper placement for maximum effectiveness 
  • Helps control airborne and surface microbial growth and transfer
Previously only Industrial "Clean Rooms" and the most advanced Hospital/Surgical suites were outfitted with this technology. Architectural Fan Coil has identified this science and has intelligently incorporated the engineering to benefit the commercial and residential fan coil. It is now such a logical and proven use for this advancement, that the GSA has called for UVGI in their most recent Standard for Federal Facilities.     

The obvious benefit of UVGI emitters is the ability to reduce mold, bacteria, fungi and associated toxins that can enter the airstream. Because these pathogens collect on cooling coils and in drain pans, they can be effectively killed by constantly irradiating those surfaces with Ultraviolet C Band light. The combination of HIGH EFFICIENCY FILTRATION and UVGI has been shown to be effective at improving and maintaining Indoor Air Quality.

Architectural Fan Coil is very proud to offer an optional factory installed Ultraviolet emitter system in all of our product lines.
