July 29, 2015

Allergy symptoms can really flare up during spring, summer and fall. It seems like the quest for relief is endless. A lot of contaminants can hinder your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can ease the allergy symptoms caused by these contaminants with germicidal lights.

Some people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re a great way to boost 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 damage 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 assist in making your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to improving 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. So, keeping your air clean keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. What could be better?
