December 7, 1999 - UV Light Technology Now Available to
Consumers For Home Air Purification
Hilton Head Island, SC - South Carolina-based Enhance-It,
LLC recently began marketing two new products which employ ultraviolet (UV)
light technology to purify air and eliminate germs in consumers' homes. The
technology, long proven to be effective and widely used in a variety of
commercial settings, has not been available to consumers for home use until
a short time ago.
According to the American Lung Association's research, more than 20% of the
U.S. population suffers from allergies related to indoor pollutants. While
most home filtration systems capture dirt, dust and pollen, they do not
remove allergens from the air.
UV light technology, on the other hand, literally sterilizes microorganisms.
Because UV light is absorbed by proteins in microorganisms, it inactivates
their DNA and prevents the microorganisms from reproducing. In this manner,
the technology sterilizes molds, germs, viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores
from the air. These airborne contaminants, known as bioaerosols, can cause a
variety of illnesses including cold viruses, staph, strep, influenza,
measles, chicken pox and many, many more.
According to Warren Lynn, President of Enhance-It, LLC, "It's a known fact
that the ultraviolet component of sunlight is the main reason microbes die
in the outdoor air. Duplicating the concept, UV Cleanser disinfectants have
been used to sterilize germs located indoors for decades. They've been
tested and utilized by companies such as General Electric and Westinghouse.
Ever since WW II, UV technology has been employed in healthcare settings,
labs, clean rooms, commercial buildings, food processing plants, and other
environments where' clean air' is critical. Now we're pleased to make this
highly effective technology available to consumers to promote healthier
living in their own homes."
Enhance-It's products include Northern Lights® UV Cleanser and Northern
Lights® 2000. Northern Lights® UV Cleanser is available for installation in
consumers' home HVAC systems for $499.00, including the installation fees of
a HVAC certified contractor. It is installed at the cold air return of the
heating/air conditioning system and includes a lamp that emits UV light. The
UV light eliminates or greatly reduces germs and viruses circulated by the
HVAC system and provides coverage up to 5000 square feet.
Northern Lights® 2000 is a portable, in-room unit which can be carried from
room to room, used when traveling, taken to the office, etc. It retails for
$459.00 and operates on the same principle as the installed product and
provides coverage up to 1000 cubic feet.
Neither product utilizes chemicals. Both are proven safe and are ETL
certified which meets all federal standards. In addition, both products have
the capability to reduce frequent cold symptoms, fatigue, depression,
frequent headaches, allergy symptoms, constant snoring, nasal congestion,
Each Northern Lights® product is available with the optional Enhanced Ozone
generation lamp that reduces odors and smoke. The company also carries
replacement UV Germicidal Bulbs, which should be changed every 12 months.
Although Enhance-It's Northern Lights® UV Cleanser has only been on the
market for approximately 8 months, it is the #1 seller in its product
category in the U.S. , Mr. Lynn stated that the reason behind its success,
having sold and installed more than 15,000 units, is primarily due to its
economical pricing, ease of installation and full compliance with all
