Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the need for relief never ends. 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 little unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help decrease the pollutants annoying you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will 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 capacity to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, even when your system isn’t working, meaning germs are always being demolished.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll get, 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 could inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and could even mean greater energy 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 enhance your air quality and might even help you decrease your monthly utility bills.
