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 hunt for relief is never-ending. A lot of contaminants can hinder 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. Some people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re a great way to improve 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 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 assist in making your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to improving 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. Clean air within your home keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. What could be better?
