Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality Posted July 29, 2015 During the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are constantly an issue. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the need for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights can 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 pollutants 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 are able to penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to stop their growth and their capacity to multiply. The lights are also working non-stop, 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 get, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system work at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it can inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and may even mean greater energy bills. 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 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 could even help you decrease your monthly energy bills.
