Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for you or your family, the need for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help decrease the impurities affecting you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights are able to 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 halt their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, even when your system isn’t operating, 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 build up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and might even mean higher 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 heard 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 improve your air quality and might even help you lessen your monthly utility bills.
