Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for you or your family, the desire for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help reduce the pollutants affecting you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights are able to 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 halt their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working non-stop, 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 obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it may inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and may even mean increased 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 benefits, 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 lessen your monthly utility bills.
