Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the search for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help decrease the impurities bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights are able to keep germs from multiplying. Germicidal lights work by producing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that will 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 non-stop, even when your system isn’t working, meaning germs are always being demolished. In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it could inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and could even mean greater energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s more enjoyable to breathe for everyone. Now that you’ve read about all of the perks, 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 may even help you lessen your monthly energy bills.
