Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality Posted July 29, 2015 Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are a constant. No matter when seasonal allergies impact you or your family, the search for relief is constant. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights might help decrease the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a little unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help decrease the pollutants bothering you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights will keep germs from multiplying. Germicidal lights work by releasing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that can 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 working, meaning germs are always being destroyed. 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 accumulate in your system, it can inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and could even mean greater energy costs. 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 bonuses, 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 could even help you decrease your monthly utility bills.
