Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the search for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help tackle the pollutants annoying 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 halt their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, even when your system isn’t working, 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 could inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and could 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 know about all of the perks, 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 could even help you decrease your monthly energy costs.
