Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the need for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help decrease the impurities bothering 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 are able to penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to stop their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working non-stop, 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 receive, 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, impacting energy efficiency and could even mean greater 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 inquire about germicidal lights next time you have air conditioner service done. After all, it does help improve your air quality and might even help you reduce your monthly energy costs.
