Here are some examples measured in microwatt seconds per square centimeter:
- Adeno Virus Type III - 4,500
- Bacteriophage 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 - 6,600
- Coxsackie - 6,300

Some require more UVC to kill the virus, but all are able to be destroyed by UVC. It takes a large dose of UVC to kill germs and viruses. The capability of a UVC light to sterilize your home germs and viruses depends on the intensity of the lamp used.
While the lamp intensity is the most important, other factors are at play. For example, longer/larger air ducts are able to kill bacteria and viruses better. The slower the air moves the more effective the UV sterilization process.
Nature’s Home UVC products are designed to exceed Westinghouse’s design parameters. If you want to protect your home and family from germs and viruses in your home, consider having a professional install Nature’s Home dual UVC lamp units into your HVAC system.
