Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

July 29, 2015

Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for you or your family, the desire for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is impacting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can help ease 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 bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights are able to keep germs from multiplying.

Germicidal lights work by emitting UV (ultraviolet) light rays that will penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to stop their growth and their ability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, even when your system isn’t running, meaning germs are always being eliminated.

In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll receive, 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, decreasing energy efficiency and may even mean higher energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s better to breathe for everyone.

Now that you know about all of the perks, 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 improve your air quality and might even help you reduce your monthly energy costs.
