Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the need for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help tackle the contaminants 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 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 running, meaning germs are always being eliminated.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll get, 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, hurting energy efficiency and might even mean higher energy costs. 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 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 enhance your air quality and might even help you reduce your monthly energy bills.
