Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the search for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting 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 can keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by emitting UV (ultraviolet) light rays that are able to penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to halt their growth and their ability 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 run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and might even mean increased energy costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better to breathe for everyone.
Now that you’ve heard 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 may even help you reduce your monthly utility bills.
