UV (ultraviolet) lighting is a type of air purification that is very effective in your HVAC system when installed and maintained correctly. UV lighting works by artificially creating UV-C rays. This is the third type (the other two are the more familiar UV-A and UV-B) of ultraviolet light produced by the sun, and it’s actually the most harmful. However, used safely within a contained chamber, UV-C light is an excellent agent for killing pathogens such as bacteria, viruses (including COVID-19), and mold. Check out our UV lighting Services .
Benefits of Ultraviolet Lighting
If you or your family members suffer from allergies, illnesses, or poor air quality, installing a UV light can bring relief. Besides killing microorganisms, it reduces bad odors, keeps your HVAC equipment cleaner, and can even lower your energy costs by preventing mold growth on the evaporator coil.
Ways to Install UV Lighting
There are several ways UV lighting can be installed for air purification. The first is to place a bulb inside your HVAC unit’s air handler (the part which contains the evaporator coil, blower motor, and filter). The light stays on all the time and sterilizers the coil continuously.
An ultraviolet light kit can also be placed in the air return. Here, it sterilizes the moving air as it passes through. This light is designed to turn itself off when the fans aren’t running. Installing a UV light in this location provides more system-wide benefits. Please note that to get maximum results from this or a coil sterilizer, you still need a good HEPA filter in your HVAC system since UV lights can’t remove dust, dander, and pollen.

Not only do UV lights protect your family’s health by destroying microbes, but they’re also affordable and easy to install. They require little to no maintenance — only replace the bulb once a year.
