Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the desire for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading 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 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 emitting 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 capability to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t running, meaning germs are always being destroyed.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll get, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system work at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it could inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and might even mean greater utility costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s more enjoyable 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 costs.
