Through the spring, summer, and fall, allergies are running rampant. No matter when seasonal allergies area a nuisance for you or your family, the need for relief is neverending. Whether it is mold, pet dander, or some other bacteria that is hurting your indoor air quality, germicidal lights could help decrease the effects of allergies.
Germicidal lights may sound a bit unfamiliar because they aren’t often talked about, but they can help reduce the pollutants annoying you. Even though they’re hidden inside your system, germicidal lights can keep germs from multiplying.
Germicidal lights work by emitting 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 running, meaning germs are always being demolished.
In addition to all of the indoor air quality benefits you’ll obtain, germicidal lights also help your heating and cooling system work at its best. When mold, pet dander, and other microorganisms build up in your system, it can inhibit its performance, impacting energy efficiency and may even mean higher energy costs. Getting rid of those pollutants means a healthier system and air that’s a little easier to breathe for everyone.
