Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Allergy symptoms can really flare up during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the hunt for relief is boundless. A lot of contaminants can hinder your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get some relief from the allergy symptoms created by these contaminants with germicidal lights. A lot of people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re a great way to improve the air in your house. The lights are contained within your HVAC system and keep germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that destroy the cell walls of contaminants so they can’t grow or multiply. Even during the time when your system isn’t running, the lights are still destroying them. Germicidal lights can also have the added benefit of helping your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to improving your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can accumulate in your system and this causes it to work harder than necessary. So, keeping your air clean keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. It doesn’t get better than that. Now that you’re aware of the indoor air quality benefits of having germicidal lights, ask your HVAC professional about them at your next air conditioner service appointment.
