Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies affect 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 can help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, 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 can 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 all the time, 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 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, impacting energy efficiency and may even mean higher utility costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s a little easier to breathe for everyone.
Now that you know 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 enhance your air quality and may even help you decrease your monthly energy bills.
