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 search for relief is endless. A lot of contaminants can damage your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can ease the allergy symptoms brought on by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Some people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re an awesome way to enhance the quality of the air in your house. The lights are contained within your HVAC system and prevents germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that damage the cell walls of contaminants so they can’t grow or multiply. Without even having your system 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 build up in your system and this causes it to work harder than necessary. Maintaining clean air keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. It doesn’t get better than that.
