July 29, 2015

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 damage 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.

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 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 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 in turn it has to work harder than necessary. Clean air within your home keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. Is there anything better than that?
