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

July 29, 2015

Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the need for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help lessen the effects of allergies.

Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help decrease the impurities affecting 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 will 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 non-stop, 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 obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it could inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and could even mean greater utility costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s more enjoyable 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 enhance your air quality and might even help you decrease your monthly energy costs.
