Goettl Air Conditioning Donates UV Germicidal Lights to All 600 employees

CEO Ken Goodrich of Goettl Air Conditioning & Plumbing, a leading provider of HVAC and plumbing services in the Southwest U.S., announced he is spending $1.5 million to install ultraviolet (UV) germicidal lights in the homes of more than 600 employees.

Deemed an essential business during an unprecedented time in our nation, Goettl's HVAC and plumbing technicians have continued to work tirelessly to ensure their community is receiving essential life systems and services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. To show appreciation for their hard work and dedication, Goodrich is giving each Goettl employee a new UV germicidal light that will be installed into their personal HVAC system.

"Our technicians are putting their own well-being and safety second to serve their communities," said Goodrich. "I want them to know how much we appreciate their unwavering dedication and bravery by giving them a product that will hopefully provide their own families with invaluable peace of mind during these uncertain times."

The UV germicidal light, which mimics natural sunlight, uses ultraviolet radiation to drastically decrease indoor germs such as mold, fungi and bacteria. Additionally, the UV radiation destroys the nuclei of each contaminant preventing it from reproducing. Proven to kill viruses of many strains, this type of UV light is also used in hospitals and food processing plants nationwide.

The safety and well-being of Goettl employees is top priority for Goodrich and his executive team. As technicians are a critical resource for essential home services, Goodrich is committed to doing as much as possible to help ensure they stay safe and healthy during this public health crisis.

"At Goettl, we believe in doing things the right way, not the easy way and what's right is keeping our employees safe and as healthy as possible so that they may continue to serve their beloved communities," Goodrich continued.
