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

July 29, 2015

Allergy symptoms can really get annoying during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the search for relief is endless. A lot of contaminants can hinder your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can ease the allergy symptoms caused by these contaminants with germicidal lights.

Many people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re a great way to improve the air in your house. The lights are housed within your HVAC system and keep 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 having a positive impact on your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can accumulate in your system and this causes it to work harder than necessary. Maintaining clean air keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. Is there anything better than that?

Now that you’ve learned the indoor air quality benefits of having germicidal lights, ask your HVAC professional about them at your next air conditioner service appointment.
