Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the need for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help lessen the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help decrease 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 releasing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to stop their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, 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 obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it could 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’ve heard 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 lessen your monthly utility bills.
