Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality Posted July 29, 2015 Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies affect you or your family, the search for relief never ends. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is degrading your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help lessen the effects of allergies. Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t mentioned often, but they can help reduce the contaminants annoying 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 will 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 running, meaning germs are always being eliminated. In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll receive, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system operate at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms accumulate in your system, it could inhibit its performance, decreasing energy efficiency and might even mean increased 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 read about all of the perks, 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 might even help you reduce your monthly energy bills.
