It seems like the quest for relief is boundless. A lot of contaminants can hinder your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can ease the allergy symptoms brought on by these contaminants with germicidal lights. A lot of people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re an awesome way to improve the air in your house. The lights are housed within your HVAC system and stops germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that damage the cell walls of contaminants so they are unable to grow or multiply. 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 build up in your system and in turn it has to work harder than necessary.
