Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Allergy symptoms can really flare up during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the hunt for relief is boundless. A lot of contaminants can hurt your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get some relief from the allergy symptoms caused by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Some people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re a great way to enhance the quality of the air in your house. The lights are incorporated within your HVAC system and prevents germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that harm the cell walls of contaminants so they are unable to grow or multiply. Even 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 having a positive impact on your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can accumulate 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.
