During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the need for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help lessen the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help reduce the impurities bothering 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 will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to end their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t working, meaning germs are always being eliminated.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and could 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 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 lessen your monthly utility bills.
