Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

July 29, 2015

Allergy symptoms can really kick into overdrive during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the search 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.

Many 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 contained within your HVAC system and prevents germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that harm the cell walls of contaminants and keeps them from growing or multiplying. 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 having a positive impact on your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can accumulate in your system and make it work harder than necessary. So, keeping your air clean keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. What could be better?
