It seems like the search for relief is boundless. A lot of contaminants can damage your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get some relief from the allergy symptoms brought on by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Some people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re one of the best ways to improve the air in your house. The lights are contained within your HVAC system and stops germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that destroy the cell walls of contaminants so they are unable to grow or multiply. Even during the time when your system isn’t running, the lights are still destroying them. Germicidal lights can also help your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to improving your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can build up in your system and make it work harder than necessary. Maintaining clean air keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy.
