Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the need for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help tackle the pollutants bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by releasing 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 around the clock, 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 get, 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 could inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and could even mean increased 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 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.
