Two Technologies, One Goal: Occupant Health
The global health crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic showed that nearly everyone on the planet suffers risk of infection by working in close proximity to others. Many factories and production facilities were caught off guard and found themselves unprepared for the dangers involved. As we learn more about COVID-19 and other airborne threats, we are understanding the importance of indoor air quality everywhere, including commercial buildings, hotels, and other facilities.
The HVAC industry has long been a strong proponent of indoor air quality. Over the past 20 years, we have witnessed many significant gains in technology that can effectively eliminate the threat of bacteria and viruses in these indoor settings.
It’s no secret that healthier employees are more productive employees. You can protect yourself — and those depending on you — with the right equipment and technology. At Legacy, we design systems that protect those inside your facility so they can continue to do what they do best. We serve commercial facilities where manufacturing happens as well as large warehouses and distribution centers.
We’ve also been trusted by hospitals, healthcare facilities, and hotels to layer virus protection products for their occupants to keep these facilities running even in the midst of airborne viruses like COVID-19.
In our years of experience, we have refined our recommendations to two specific product lines that provide the best protection against virus, bacteria, and other contaminants in the workplace. These products represent the best line of defense for you, your employees, and your customers.
To give you the best technology available for your facility, Legacy Mechanical Systems, Inc. is proud to offer these lifesaving devices that give you the protection your occupants need when it comes to indoor air quality.
UV Lighting with PhotohydroionizationⓇ (PHI)
To achieve the highest level of protection from airborne contaminants, we recommend the RGF Environmental Group range of products. Our trained team stands prepared to explore your facility and determine the best products from the RGF line to meet your specific needs.
Each of the RGF products uses the latest technology to cleanse airborne contaminants as they pass through your existing HVAC system. We simply find the right component and the right location to optimize your facility’s health. However, PHI-cellⓇ technology not only eliminates virus and bacterial at the point of contact, but it also creates hydro-ionized ions that flow into the workplace and penetrate all areas of the facility with virus fighting capabilities for comprehensive and complete coverage. These “friendly oxidizers” keep working throughout the facility to eliminate 99 percent of virus and bacteria contaminants wherever the air is breathable.
While typical germicidal UV light affects only those micro-organisms it “shines on,” it has little to no effect on gasses, vapors, and odors. The PhotohydronionizationⓇ Advanced Oxidation supplied through our line of RGF products provides superb protection against harmful gases, vapors, VOCs, and other odors anywhere the air goes in your facility.
Benefits of PHIⓇ Technology
- Reduces microbial count to near ZERO in the air within 24 hours
- Kills viruses on surfaces AND in the air throughout facility 24/7
- Eliminates odors, harmful VOCs, and other pollutants
- Easy installation in existing or new HVAC systems
- No maintenance required – simple bulb replacement every 2-3 years
Air Probe Sanitizer
Another option to improve indoor air quality is the UV Air Probe Sanitizer system, which provides another level of 24/7/365 air purification. Using patented UVGI probes, this technology is easily customized by our technicians to fit any new or existing HVAC system, from the small single story building unit, to the large multistory built up air handler. Legacy was an early adopter of the UV Air Probe Sanitizer and has been an official affiliate for the product for many years.
Because nearly all HVAC systems provide ideal conditions for mold, mildew, and other hazardous air pollutants, and because each HVAC system typically circulates its air 250 to 400 times per day, air quality is a significant concern in any commercial or residential setting.
The Air Probe Sanitizer generates a germicidal benefit 2,500 times greater than the benefit provided by direct, natural sunlight. As the air circulates through your protected system, the Air Probe Sanitizer kills germs, bacteria, viruses, mildew, and mold spores (including stachybotrys and black mold) as they pass these advanced UV lamps.
This process results in a cleaner, healthier environment for any facility implementing this technology. In fact, it takes only 24 hours to notice a difference in the air that you breathe once the Air Probe Sanitizer is installed by our technicians.
Benefits of Air Probe Sanitizer
- Kills germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, etc. 24/7/365
- Helps stop the spread of diseases and illnesses for a more productive workforce
- Stops mold and bacteria growth inside the HVAC system
- Eliminates chemical, cooking, tobacco, and pet odors
- Destroys harmful VOCs
- Generates safe and effective hydroxyl, the natural compound that eliminates pollution from the earth’s atmosphere
Why Add these Systems?
We believe these products present the best methods to eliminate virus and bacteria in the workplace. All industries seeking the highest level of air quality – healthcare, manufacturing, warehousing, and service industries like hotels, malls, and restaurants – should equip their facilities with UV technology as soon as possible.
Fortunately, we at Legacy are trained to install the right pieces of equipment at minimal intrusion on your regular business operations. Many installations do not require any disruption to your day to day workflow.
Your new system will generate a healthier environment while providing an efficient, cost-effective, and durable layer of protection for your business and your employees. The only expected maintenance for these products is a bulb replacement every 2 to 3 years, and our technicians will perform inspections of these bulbs and UV devices as part of our normal maintenance program for all of your HVAC equipment.
