Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the desire for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned 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 emitting UV (ultraviolet) light rays that can 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 around the clock, 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 run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it may inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and might even mean higher energy costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s more enjoyable to breathe for everyone.
Now that you’ve heard about all of the perks, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t ask 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 utility bills.
