Germicidal UVC Solutions for Home and Commercial HVAC
The coils in you HVAC system do more than simply condition the air in your home or workplace. They provide an ideal breeding ground for biofilms.
Biofilms form when mold and bacteria adhere to surfaces in moist environments by excreting a slimy, glue-like substance, creating a number of issues, including:
- HVAC units work harder, shortening the lifespan of equipment and increasing energy costs
- Indoor air quality (IAQ) is reduced as mold, bacteria and other biocontaminants spread, impacting the health of your family
- Production of unpleasant, harmful odors associated with mold and bacterial growth
GermLogic’s UVC Emitters™ are the perfect solution to retrofit HVAC systems. They use the proven power of germicidal ultraviolet-C (UVC) energy. UVC effectively and efficiently eliminates biofilm, and provides home owners with:
- Improved Indoor air quality
- Less cleaning of coils and ducts
- Extended life of the HVAC system
- Energy savings up to 15% per year (providing payback within 24 months on average)
*The UVC emitters produce no ozone or secondary contaminants.
How Does a Healthy Building
Add Up to a Healthy Bottom Line?
Imagine an investment that paid measurable, almost immediate benefits across multiple areas of your organization, from controlling energy costs to boosting productivity.
That’s exactly what happens when you invest in equipment from GermLogic, who has partnered with the global leader in high-output ultraviolet germicidal solutions for improved indoor air quality and energy efficiency.
Biofilms: Costly buildup that shortens the life of your HVAC equipment
Dust adheres to the sticky biofilm surface, resulting in a number of bottom-line issues:
- HVAC units are forced to work harder, shortening the lifespan of your equipment and increasing your energy costs
- Indoor air quality (IAQ) is reduced as mold, bacteria and other biocontaminants spread, impacting the health and productivity of building workers or inhabitants
- Messy, ineffective cleaning solutions force equipment downtime and the use of hazardous chemicals in an attempt to remove biofilms

UVC: The key to green, sustainable HVAC solutions
The coils in a heating, ventilating and air conditioning system (HVAC) do more than simply condition the air in your home or workplace. They provide an ideal breeding ground for mold, bacteria, viruses and HVAC operational issues.
GermLogic UVC Emitters use the proven power of germicidal ultraviolet-C (UVC) energy as an effective inactivation method for microorganisms, cleaning the coils, drain pans and ductwork, extending the life of your HVAC equipment and providing a healthier environment in which to live.
Energy & Water Conservation
With 60% of energy consumed by a buildings HVAC system and with energy costs rising, everyone’s looking to control expenses and lessen their carbon footprint. A cleaner, more efficient HVAC system curbs overhead and conserves natural resources by reducing energy and water consumption.
GermLogic’s germicidal UVC reduces energy consumption used by the fan, chiller and chiller pump by continuously cleaning the coils and drain pan. The result is improved:
- Heat transfer
- Net cooling capacity
- Compressor run time
- Operational efficiency
- Thermal comfort
Water is fast becoming the new oil — a precious resource to be used wisely.
How can Steril-Aire UVC solutions help? Reclaimed clean, coil condensate can be used for cooling tower make-up water, landscape irrigation or gray water flushing, thereby reducing:
- Water consumption
- Operating costs
- Chemical use
- Chiller energy use and costs
This reclamation process can also realize energy savings by mixing the chilled make-up water with the warmer water for the tower. Not only is the water already chilled — requiring less energy — but also distilled and clean with high output GermLogic UVC germicidal energy. Only Steril-Aire’s patented installation provides this benefit.
Productivity & Well-being
Why is IAQ a major concern to companies, building owners, managers, tenants, and employees alike? It can have a significant impact on the comfort, well-being and productivity of your building occupants. Studies conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and independent scientific panels have found indoor air pollution to be an ongoing environmental health problem.
GermLogic UVC makes a vital contribution to IAQ improvement by reducing complaints and absenteeism that result from mold contamination and sick building syndrome (SBS).
By eliminating the source of contamination at the coils and in the drain pan,* GermLogic germicidal UVC can help reduce:
- Spread of airborne contaminants
- Chemical use
Better for the environment, and your business
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, we spend more than 90% of our time indoors — breathing air that can be two to 10 times more polluted than outdoor air. The quality of indoor air, influenced by the levels of bioaerosols, contaminants and pollutants, can affect occupant health and development, resulting in reduced worker productivity and increased workplace absenteeism.
But air quality is not simply a health issue. Building operation and maintenance, particularly of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), can also have a major impact on your building’s financial health.
From reducing energy and water consumption to extending equipment life and efficiency, environmental stewardship is more than simply a feel-good message — it’s a strategic business imperative for remaining competitive in the 21st century global marketplace.
