LUV Systems, Inc. is your source for healthier, cleaner air and all the benefits that come with it.
For many years, LUV Systems has been bringing an active and transparent approach to pioneering solutions for indoor air quality.
And the true benefits are something you’ll see for years to come. We’re talking about the competitive edge that comes with being able to ensure improved air quality, the bottom line business advantages of fewer sick days, greater productivity, and the peace of mind that comes from living in, working in or visiting a healthy indoor environment.
When the pandemic hit in early 2020, our Los Angeles-based team sprang into action. Seeing that there were no effective indoor air solutions in the marketplace, we decided to do something about it.
Our mission at LUV Systems is to achieve healthier public environments via effective disinfection solutions for indoor air and commonly touched surfaces.
This is our story.
LUV - Our Disinfection Technology
Ultraviolet light has been used to disinfect and kill germs in critical healthcare and infrastructure applications for over 100 years. In response to Covid-19, we quickly assembled a team from MIT, UC Berkeley, Boston University, UT Austin, and Caltech, and designed the halō as our first product incorporating low-wavelength (Low-UVC) technology specifically for indoor air. Selected medical, photonics, and engineering experts have incorporated key performance and safety elements of the halō and all LUV products. Now, LUV Systems will keep you and customers safe at your business, classroom, office, and other public spaces.
the halō is the only product featuring continuous, effective, non-intrusive, and exposure-free disinfection of indoor air while people are present.
Effective. Safe. Affordable.
LUV - Our Journey
LUV Systems has key offices in California, Massachusetts, and Texas. Our team of engineers and scientists has a simple objective:
Make people safer from germs in public places.
When the Covid-19 pandemic emerged in early 2020, we commissioned our affiliate, EnviroProcess Consultants, Inc. (EPC) to invent, design, and produce effective, safe, and affordable solutions with novel uses of germicidal low-UVC light. We carefully studied transport and fate mechanisms for respiratory pathogens. We retained Boston University Medical School to characterize the effectiveness of our low-UVC system for killing Covid-19 virus.
As a result, our formulated and proprietary solutions are foremost based in science and engineering. Our unique technology and strategy for transmission risk mitigation in public places is now available for schools, senior care facilities, medical offices and lobbies, retail and commercial shops, offices, gyms and studios, places of worship, and, in the future, transportation vehicles.
For healthy indoor air, EPC and LUV Systems developed the halō, a proactive, state-of-the-art solution to respiratory infections. the halō is the only product to provide short-range (<6 ft) and long-term (>8 hr) of protection from respiratory infection, 40x longer than the CDC's published 15-minute guideline for close contact without mitigation.
Our principal founder and CEO, Anu Sood, is an MIT-trained professional chemical engineer with 30+ years as a recognized expert in air quality characterization, control, and treatment. Anu is recognized by the South Coast Air Quality Management District as a certified control technology consultant and his firm EPC has provided pollution prevention and reduction strategies for over 25 years.

LUV Systems and EPC contracted Dr. Anthony Griffiths at Boston University Medical School, to specifically study disinfection of Covid-19 virions on common, real world surfaces with UVC light. Results have proven that the halō light inactivates 99.9% of Covid-19 virus in seconds. Dr. Griffiths is the first researcher world-wide to publish on Covid-19 inactivation using 254 nm UVC. Please contact us to learn more about our research. Read more about our research proposal.
LUV Systems and EPC have filed UVC disinfection fast-track patent applications for multiple inventions configured to disinfect air and surfaces in public places, and we have negotiated various office actions with the USPTO. Our first patent has already been approved and is pending issuance. At present, various other LUV Systems products and the halō are patent-pending.
Our first product to market is the halō Model 5R/M, which includes a 60" diameter upflow fan - for rooms 500-1,000 ft², and larger with multiple units. Models for elevators and small areas are planned for release soon. In addition, other product lines are under development for safe and effective use of UVC with devices for theaters, stadiums, vehicles, public surfaces such as keypads, and personal use.
