It seems like the search 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 created by these contaminants with germicidal lights. Many people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re an awesome way to boost the quality of 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 damage 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 improving your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can build up in your system and in turn it has to work harder than necessary. So, keeping your air clean keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. What could be better?
