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

July 29, 2015

Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the search for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease the effects of allergies.

Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help decrease the contaminants affecting 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 halt their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working non-stop, 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 receive, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms build up in your system, it could inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and could even mean greater utility costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better 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 better your air quality and could even help you reduce your monthly utility bills.
