During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. 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 hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help reduce the contaminants 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 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 eliminated.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll receive, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms build up in your system, it could inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and could 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 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 reduce your monthly energy costs.
