Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the need for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help decrease the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help tackle the contaminants affecting you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights can keep germs from multiplying. Germicidal lights work by producing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that are able to penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to end their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t operating, meaning germs are always being destroyed. In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll get, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms build up in your system, it could inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and might even mean greater energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better to breathe for everyone. Now that you know about all of the benefits, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t ask about germicidal lights next time you have air conditioner service done. After all, it does help better your air quality and could even help you decrease your monthly energy costs.
