Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the desire for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help lessen the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help decrease the contaminants affecting 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 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 obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it could inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and could even mean higher utility costs. 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 could even help you lessen your monthly energy costs.
