No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for 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 could help ease the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help decrease the contaminants bothering 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 halt their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working non-stop, 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 get, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system work at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and could even mean increased utility 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 heard about all of the bonuses, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t inquire about germicidal lights next time you have air conditioner service done.
