UV Disinfection: Lumalier

LumalierBuilding owners and operators that have been intrigued by the significant energy savings and health benefits of UV disinfection systems within the air handler of HVAC systems now have an even more compelling reason to take notice.  Namely, recently available “automated” UV disinfection systems that apply only the amount of UV light required based on HVAC usage to deliver an additional 60% to 80% on electrical costs and further reduce an already short 2 yr estimated ROI.

UV disinfection systems, which apply ultraviolet light to HVAC air handler coils and the air as it passes through to kill harmful pathogens, have traditionally been static systems that run 24/7 at a specific intensity.

By applying UV light in this manner, building owners and operators win on two counts: clean air handler coils mean the HVAC systems work more efficiently and therefore significantly reduce energy costs; and the building’s occupants breathe cleaner, safer air.

Now, by automating the UV disinfection applied to air handler coils to match variable HVAC usage, building owners and operators are saving an additional 60% to 80% on electrical costs beyond the savings and health benefits already achieved by such systems. 

‘Intelligent’ Disinfection

The Phillips Intelligent Disinfection Wall is designed to be integrated with existing BAS such as BACnet. 

“It’s the right time for budget conscious organizations to look into an automated UV disinfection system,” says Skelton.  “Companies that want UV now have a way to pay for it and that’s by the utility savings alone, along with the health benefits.”
