Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the need for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help reduce 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 emitting 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 non-stop, even when your system isn’t running, meaning germs are always being destroyed.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll receive, 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 may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and might even mean higher energy bills. 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 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 better your air quality and might even help you decrease your monthly utility bills.
