Throughout 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 can help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help reduce the contaminants bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by releasing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to halt their growth and their capability to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t working, meaning germs are always being demolished.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system work at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms build up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and could 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’ve read 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 better your air quality and might even help you lessen your monthly energy costs.
