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

July 29, 2015

Allergy symptoms can really flare up during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the quest for relief is boundless. 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 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 contained within your HVAC system and keep germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that harm the cell walls of contaminants so they are unable to grow or multiply. Even during the time when your system isn’t 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 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. Clean air within your home keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. What could be better?
