Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the search for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help reduce the impurities annoying you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights can 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 stop their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, even when your system isn’t operating, meaning germs are always being demolished.
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 build up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and may even mean higher energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s a little easier to breathe for everyone.
Now that you’ve read about all of the bonuses, 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 bills.
