Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. 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 degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help ease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help reduce the pollutants bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights are able to keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by releasing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to stop 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 eliminated.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll receive, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it could inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and could 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 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 enhance your air quality and may even help you decrease your monthly energy costs.
