It seems like the hunt for relief is endless. 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. A lot of people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re one of the best ways to enhance 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 harm the cell walls of contaminants and keeps them from growing or multiplying. Without even having your system running, the lights are still destroying them. Germicidal lights can also have the added benefit of helping your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to cleaning up your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can get clogged in your system and this causes it to work harder than necessary.
