Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Through 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 tad unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help decrease the pollutants affecting 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 halt their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, even when your system isn’t running, meaning germs are always being demolished. In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll receive, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it could inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and may 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 read about all of the bonuses, 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 enhance your air quality and could even help you decrease your monthly utility bills.
