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

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 hurt your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can ease the allergy symptoms created 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 keep germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that destroy the cell walls of contaminants so they can’t grow or multiply. Even 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?
