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

Air Quality

Allergy symptoms can really kick into overdrive during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the hunt for relief is boundless. A lot of contaminants can hurt your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can ease the allergy symptoms caused by these contaminants with germicidal lights.

Some 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 housed within your HVAC system and stops germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that destroy the cell walls of contaminants and keeps them from growing or multiplying. 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 having a positive impact on your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can build up in your system and this causes it to work harder than necessary. Clean air within your home keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. What could be better?
