Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for you or your family, the need for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, 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 releasing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that will 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 running, meaning germs are always being eliminated.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and might even mean greater energy costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s a little easier to breathe for everyone.
Now that you’ve read about all of the benefits, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t find out 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.
