Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the desire for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help tackle the impurities bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights can keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by releasing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that are able to penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to end their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working non-stop, even when your system isn’t working, meaning germs are always being eliminated.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll get, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms build up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and may even mean greater energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s more enjoyable 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 could even help you reduce your monthly utility bills.
