Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Allergy symptoms can really get annoying during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the search for relief is boundless. A lot of contaminants can hinder your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can ease the allergy symptoms caused by these contaminants with germicidal lights. A lot of 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 housed within your HVAC system and keep germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that destroy the cell walls of contaminants so they can’t 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 accumulate 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. Is there anything better than that?
