Germicidal UV Light

Equal functionality and efficiency in both horizontal and vertical operation.


Low-pressure mercury germicidal lamps are the most common types of UV germicidal lamps and include a wide range of lamp types. Low pressure mercury germicidal lamps provide effective sterilization to a broad range of industries and applications. Low-pressure mercury lamps are available in ozone-generating or ozone-free lamp types and includeprovides the highest efficiency by converting 40% of the lamp’s electrical power to UVC radiation at 254 nm. Low ozone type of quartz glass allows 90% transmission at 254 nm, blocking 185 nm energy. Very High ozone, VH, standard output lamps transmit both 185 nm for ozone producing lamps and 254 nm wavelengths. The type of fused quartz determines the wavelength emissions.provides approximately twice the UVC output, up to 66% more UV output compared to standard output lamps of the same length. HO lamps allow for decreasing the number of lamps necessary without compromising functionality. HO lamps offer advantages when a smaller footprint is required.

Frequently Asked Questions

The filters we carry at J&A have different levels of efficiency all rated by the size of particle they trap. We suggest talking to a comfort consultant to best identify what filter to purchase as your needs may vary. Good- The Healthy Climate Merv 11 is a standard filter ideal for homes with pets and lasts roughly 8 to 12 months, while the Better-The Healthy Climate Merv 13 is ideal for filtering out mold and some viruses and last roughly 8-12 months Best- The Healthy Climate Merv 16 is the highest level of particle filtration you can purchase. The Merv 16 filter includes a carbon core which will reduce ozone while trapping germs and virus and removes up to 95% of particles in your home. In addition to these options, J&A can also install Hepa filters to your ductwork to clean the air in your house to be as clean as the air in a hospital.

Air purifiers can range in price and efficiency so we advise to talk to one of our comfort consultants. With that being said a great option is the Lennox Pureair. The PureAir™ is extremely efficient in removing odours and chemical vapors produced by pets, cleaning products, etc. What makes the Pureair so superior is the fact that it is a whole home system that eliminates 90% of germs and bacteria down to .01-micron, removing 90% of viruses like flu and MRSA. Lennox claims this filter removes particles as small as Covid 19 and SARS.

A germicidal light is a product that destroy contaminants like mold, mildew, and bacteria within your HVAC system. A germicidal light is important for a variety of reasons. Most importantly it prevents microorganisms from spreading throughout your house. Specifically, Germicidal lights destroy germs, mold and fungi that may live in ductwork and inside your heating and cooling equipment.

Saskatchewan and Saskatoon specifically is notorious for having hard water. Due to this it is recommended to service your humidifier once a year.
