Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

July 29, 2015

Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the search for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease the effects of allergies.

Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help tackle the pollutants affecting you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will keep germs from multiplying.

Germicidal lights work by producing 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 capability to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t running, meaning germs are always being destroyed.

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 accumulate in your system, it could inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and could even mean higher utility 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 bonuses, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t inquire 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 energy costs.
