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 damage 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 one of the best ways to improve the air in your house. The lights are housed within your HVAC system and stops germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that destroy 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 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 accumulate 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. It doesn’t get better than that.
