Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality Posted July 29, 2015 During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the search for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help reduce the contaminants bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will 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 ability to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t operating, 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 might even mean increased energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better to breathe for everyone. Now that you’ve read about all of the bonuses, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t find out about germicidal lights next time you have air conditioner service done. After all, it does help better your air quality and may even help you reduce your monthly energy bills.
