Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

July 29, 2015

During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the desire for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help decrease the effects of allergies.

Germicidal lights may sound a little 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 can keep germs from multiplying.

Germicidal lights work by producing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that are able to penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to halt their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t working, meaning germs are always being demolished.

In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll receive, 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 could inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and may even mean greater energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better to breathe for everyone.

Now that you’ve heard about all of the bonuses, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t ask 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 lessen your monthly energy costs.
