Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for you or your family, the need for relief never ends. 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 often talked about, but they can help tackle the pollutants bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights are able to keep germs from multiplying. Germicidal lights work by emitting UV (ultraviolet) light rays that can penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to stop their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t running, meaning germs are always being eliminated. In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll receive, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system work at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms build up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and may even mean increased energy costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s a little easier to breathe for everyone. Now that you know 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 improve your air quality and might even help you lessen your monthly utility bills.
