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

July 29, 2015

Allergy symptoms can really get annoying during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the hunt for relief is endless. A lot of contaminants can damage your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get some relief from the allergy symptoms created by these contaminants with germicidal lights.

Many people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re one of the best ways to boost the quality of the air in your house. The lights are incorporated 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 during the time when your system isn’t running, the lights are still destroying them.

Germicidal lights can also assist in making your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to cleaning up your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can get clogged in your system and in turn it has to work harder than necessary. Maintaining clean air keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. What could be better?

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