Captura Germ-Killing Lamps: High-Intensity UVC!

May 12, 2020

Did you know that, in nature, UV light purifies the air? What if we told you that Captura could help you purify the air in your home the same way, with the same technology hospitals rely on?

It’s true! UV light is scientifically proven to destroy the molecular bonds of bacteria and viruses. It doesn’t matter if it’s a crazy superbug … it still doesn’t have resistance to UV radiation!


Now, you may be wondering, what’s UVC? We’re not talking about QVC. (The show that gets you to buy stuff you don’t need, whereas this is something you DO need!)

There are three main types of UV rays: UVA, UVB, and UVC. So, what’s the difference?

Well, all of them are wavelengths of energy that come from the Sun, and all of these wavelengths have a “higher frequency” than the color spectrum. That basically just means they have more energy than visible light. UVA is the closest to visible light, while UVC has the highest frequency and the most energy.

As you may have guessed, the most energy and intensity means the most ability to neutralize bacteria and viruses!

This means UVC germicidal light is vital in hospitals, because of the existence of superbugs that are resistant to antibiotics … but not resistant to UVC rays!


Now that you know why UVC is the best type of natural, practical, safe tech to neutralize germs, how exactly would something like the Captura work in your home?

It shines inside your ductwork, and so that way, it kills germs in the air passing through your ducts. They destroy the DNA of bacteria and viruses in such a way that when the microorganism tries to duplicate itself, it can’t, and so it dies off!

Captura doesn’t claim that the UVC air purification system can do that to every single germ on the first impact, but due to the size of the lamp, they will neutralize those germs on a second attempt or third attempt, when that air is recirculated through the ducts again.

UVC light is great, and since you can’t bring the hot Phoenix sun right to your home, this is an equally effective way to eliminate germs, with the power of light!
