Germicidal Lights: Can Help Reduce Germs and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

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 damage your indoor air quality, like mold, pet dander and bacteria. You can get a break from the allergy symptoms caused by these contaminants with germicidal lights.

A lot of people haven’t heard of germicidal lights but they’re an awesome way to boost the quality of the air in your house. The lights are incorporated within your HVAC system and keep germs from multiplying by emitting ultraviolet (UV) light rays that damage the cell walls of contaminants so they can’t grow or multiply. Without even having your system running, the lights are still destroying them.

Germicidal lights can also help your heating and cooling system run more efficiently, in addition to improving your indoor air quality. Mold, pet dander and other microorganisms can accumulate in your system and make it work harder than necessary. So, keeping your air clean keeps your family healthy, and your HVAC system healthy. Is there anything better than that?

Now that you’ve learned the indoor air quality benefits of having germicidal lights, ask your HVAC professional about them at your next air conditioner service appointment. Or, call Three Rivers Heating & Cooling at 503-213-4433. We have many options to help you clean up your indoor air quality from air filtration and air purification to dehumidifiers.
