Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the need for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help ease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help decrease the pollutants affecting you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights can keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by releasing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that are able to 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 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 work at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it could inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and may even mean increased energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s a little easier 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 might even help you decrease your monthly energy bills.
