Comfort accessories, such as ultraviolet (UV) germicidal lights, are becoming more and more popular as consumers are increasingly aware of air quality related health concerns that seem to be on the rise. You may be wondering what these lights are and how they can make a difference. Here’s the scoop.
What Are UV Germicidal Lights?
These specialized lights are used in hospitals to help minimize and eliminate the spread of illnesses. These lights are now being added to air purification systems to treat the entire home. With indoor air pollution being one of the top home environment concerns for homeowners, it is easy to understand how this comfort accessory is growing in popularity in recent years.
The truth is people spend 90 percent of their day indoors; if the indoor air quality is poor, then health and wellbeing can suffer. Unfortunately, indoor air quality leaves much to be desired in today's world, and recent studies show an increase in air quality related health issues, such as allergies and other respiratory issues. If this is a bit unsettling for you, you're not alone.
Fortunately, there are comfort accessories available for your home to help improve the air quality and promote better health for you and your family.
How Do Germicidal Lights Work?
Germicidal lights are installed in your ventilation system, and as air passes through them, bacteria, dust mites, mold spores, and viruses are neutralized. The air becomes cleaner as it continually circulates through your home and passes through the germicidal lights. This process can occur as often as 50 times per day. With this continual process, you can see a dramatic improvement in your indoor air quality within days.
In addition to supporting your health, adding these lights can significantly enhance your HVAC system’s efficiency. As these lights work to decrease mold spores, your system won't have to fight mold growth or deal with the barriers mold can bring to affordable and effective climate control.
