During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the search for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help tackle the impurities annoying 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 end their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, 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 obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it could inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and might even mean higher 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 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 better your air quality and may even help you reduce your monthly energy costs.
