During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the search for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, 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 stop their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working non-stop, even when your system isn’t working, meaning germs are always being destroyed.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll receive, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and may even mean increased 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 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 enhance your air quality and may even help you reduce your monthly energy bills.
