Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the search for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help tackle the contaminants annoying you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights can keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by emitting UV (ultraviolet) light rays that can 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 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 operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms build up in your system, it can inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and could even mean increased energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s more enjoyable 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 enhance your air quality and could even help you lessen your monthly energy costs.
