During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. 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 could help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help decrease 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 will 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 all the time, even when your system isn’t running, meaning germs are always being eliminated.
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 can inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and may even mean greater energy bills. 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 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 might even help you lessen your monthly utility bills.
