Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Allergy symptoms can really get annoying during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the quest for relief is never-ending. A lot of contaminants can hurt your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get a break from the allergy symptoms brought on by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Many people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re one of the best ways to enhance the quality of the air in your house. The lights are incorporated within your HVAC system and stops germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that damage the cell walls of contaminants so they are unable to grow or multiply. Even during the time when your system isn’t running, the lights are still destroying them. Germicidal lights can also have the added benefit of helping your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to improving your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can build up in your system and this causes it to work harder than necessary. Maintaining clean air keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. It doesn’t get better than that.
