HVLS Meets UV-C

April 6, 2022

Combining the air cleaning benefit of upper-room UV lighting with the air circulation capabilities of powerful overhead HVLS fans, Greenheck’s AMPLIFY DC-5 Overhead Fan With Northern Light Technology offers a unique spin on using ultraviolet light. In large-scale testing, this combo “has shown increased inactivation of airborne pathogens,” according to the company. The fans situates “non-ozone generating UV-C bulbs” inside the fan blades toward the tips where the majority of air movement occurs. The uplight design directs UV-C light away from occupants.
