Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the search for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help tackle the contaminants annoying you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights can keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by producing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to end their growth and their capacity 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 can inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and could even mean higher utility 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 find out 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 decrease your monthly energy costs.
