During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the desire for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help reduce the pollutants bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights are able to keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by producing 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 capability to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t working, 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 operate 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 higher utility costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better to breathe for everyone.
Now that you know about all of the benefits, 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 improve your air quality and could even help you reduce your monthly energy costs.
