Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality07/29/2015Allergy symptoms can really get annoying during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the quest for relief is endless. A lot of contaminants can damage your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get a break from the allergy symptoms created by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Some people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re an awesome way 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 can’t grow or multiply. Without even having your system 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 cleaning up your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can accumulate 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. Is there anything better than that?
