During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect 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 can help ease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help reduce the contaminants bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by producing 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 capability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, even when your system isn’t working, 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 run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and may even mean greater utility costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better to breathe for everyone.
Now that you’ve read about all of the perks, 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 better your air quality and might even help you decrease your monthly energy costs.
