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 impact you or your family, the need for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help decrease the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help reduce the impurities annoying 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 will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to end their growth and their capability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, even when your system isn’t operating, 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 pile up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and might even mean higher utility costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s a little easier to breathe for everyone. Now that you’ve heard about all of the perks, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t inquire about germicidal lights next time you have air conditioner service done. After all, it does help enhance your air quality and might even help you decrease your monthly energy bills.
