Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Air Quality

Allergy symptoms can really get annoying during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the hunt for relief is never-ending. A lot of contaminants can hinder 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.

Many people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re an awesome way to enhance the quality of the air in your house. The lights are contained within your HVAC system and keep germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that destroy 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 help your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to improving your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can get clogged in your system and this causes it to work harder than necessary. Clean air within your home keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. What could be better?

Now that you’ve learned the indoor air quality benefits of having germicidal lights, ask your HVAC professional about them at your next air conditioner service appointment.
