Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the desire for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little 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 are able to keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by releasing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that can penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to halt their growth and their capability 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 receive, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it could inhibit its performance, hurting 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’ve read about all of the benefits, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t find out about germicidal lights next time you have air conditioner service done. After all, it does help enhance your air quality and may even help you decrease your monthly energy costs.
