Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for you or your family, the desire for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help tackle the pollutants bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will 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 stop their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, even when your system isn’t running, 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 operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it may 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 a little easier to breathe for everyone.
Now that you’ve read about all of the perks, 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 might even help you lessen your monthly energy costs.
