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 search 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 brought on by these contaminants with germicidal lights. A lot of 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 prevents germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that damage the cell walls of contaminants so they can’t grow or multiply. Without even having your system 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 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. So, keeping your air clean keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. It doesn’t get better than that.
