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

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 could help decrease the effects of allergies.

Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t talked about often, but they can help tackle the contaminants annoying you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights are able to 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 end 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 obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it can inhibit its performance, hurting energy efficiency and might even mean greater energy bills. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s a little easier to breathe for everyone.

Now that you’ve heard about all of the bonuses, there’s really no reason you shouldn’t find out 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 lessen your monthly utility bills.
