Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for you or your family, the desire for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help tackle the contaminants affecting 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 are able to penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to stop their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, 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, impacting energy efficiency and might even mean greater energy costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better to breathe for everyone.
Now that you know about all of the bonuses, 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 may even help you decrease your monthly energy costs.
