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 quest for relief is endless. A lot of contaminants can hinder your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get a break from the allergy symptoms created by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Some 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 destroy the cell walls of contaminants so they can’t 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 get clogged in your system and this causes it to work harder than necessary. So, keeping your air clean keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. It doesn’t get better than that.
