Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality Posted July 29, 2015 Air Quality Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the search for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help decrease the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help decrease the contaminants affecting you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will 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 halt their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working around the clock, even when your system isn’t running, meaning germs are always being demolished. 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 build up in your system, it may inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and might even mean increased utility costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s more enjoyable to breathe for everyone. Now that you’ve read about all of the perks, 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 could even help you decrease your monthly utility bills.
