July 29, 2015

Allergy symptoms can really get annoying 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 some relief 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 enhance the quality of the air in your house. The lights are incorporated within your HVAC system and stops germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that destroy the cell walls of contaminants and keeps them from growing or multiplying. Even 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 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. So, keeping your air clean keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. Is there anything better than that?
