July 29, 2015

Allergy symptoms can really get annoying during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the hunt for relief is endless. A lot of contaminants can hinder your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get some relief from the allergy symptoms brought on by these contaminants with germicidal lights.

Many people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re a great way to enhance the quality of the air in your house. The lights are contained within your HVAC system and stops germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that harm 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 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. Maintaining clean air keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. It doesn’t get better than that.
