During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the need for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could 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 impurities affecting 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 halt their growth and their capability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, 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 receive, 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 can inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and may even mean higher 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 read 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 may even help you decrease your monthly utility bills.
