July 29, 2015

Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for you or your family, the search for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting 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 impurities annoying 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 can 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 running, meaning germs are always being demolished.

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 accumulate in your system, it could inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and might even mean higher energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s a little easier to breathe for everyone.

Now that you know about all of the benefits, 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 could even help you decrease your monthly energy bills.
