Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Allergy symptoms can really flare up during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the search for relief is never-ending. A lot of contaminants can hurt your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get a break from the allergy symptoms brought on by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Many people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re an awesome way to boost the quality of the air in your house. The lights are contained within your HVAC system and stops germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that harm the cell walls of contaminants so they can’t grow or multiply. Without even having your system running, the lights are still destroying them. Germicidal lights can also have the added benefit of helping your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to having a positive impact on your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can get clogged in your system and in turn it has to work harder than necessary.
