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 never-ending. A lot of contaminants can hurt your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can ease the allergy symptoms created by these contaminants with germicidal lights. A lot of people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re a great way to improve 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 harm 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 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.
