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

July 29, 2015

Allergy symptoms can really kick into overdrive during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the hunt for relief is endless. 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 keep 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 help your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to cleaning up your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can accumulate in your system and make it work harder than necessary. Maintaining clean air keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. Is there anything better than that?

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.
