Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the search for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help decrease the impurities affecting you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by emitting UV (ultraviolet) light rays that are able to penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to end their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t operating, meaning germs are always being destroyed.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll get, 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 may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and might even mean increased 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 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 improve your air quality and could even help you decrease your monthly utility bills.
