Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the need for relief never ends. 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 little unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help reduce 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 will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to stop their growth and their capability 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 get, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system work at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms build up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and could even mean increased energy bills. 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 inquire about germicidal lights next time you have air conditioner service done. After all, it does help improve your air quality and could even help you reduce your monthly energy bills.
