Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the desire 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 ease the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help tackle the pollutants affecting you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will keep germs from multiplying. Germicidal lights work by emitting UV (ultraviolet) light rays that will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to halt their growth and their capability to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t working, 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 pile up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and might even mean higher energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s more enjoyable to breathe for everyone. Now that you know about all of the benefits, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t find out about germicidal lights next time you have air conditioner service done. After all, it does help better your air quality and might even help you decrease your monthly utility bills.
