Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Allergy symptoms can really kick into overdrive during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the quest for relief is never-ending. 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 caused by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Many people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re one of the best ways to improve the air in your house. The lights are housed within your HVAC system and prevents 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 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 having a positive impact on your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can build up 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?
