Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact 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 might help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help tackle the pollutants affecting 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 will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to halt their growth and their capability 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 run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it could inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and might even mean greater energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better to breathe for everyone.
Now that you’ve heard about all of the bonuses, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t inquire 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 reduce your monthly utility bills.
