Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality Posted July 29, 2015 Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect 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 can help ease the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a tad unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help tackle the pollutants affecting you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights can keep germs from multiplying. Germicidal lights work by producing UV (ultraviolet) light rays that can penetrate the cell walls of the pollutants in your air, causing enough damage to end their growth and their capability to multiply. The lights are also working all the time, 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 run at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms pile up in your system, it can inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and may even mean greater utility costs. 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 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 enhance your air quality and might even help you reduce your monthly utility bills.
