Why Should Homeowners Consider HVAC UV Lighting? 

HVAC UV Lighting

Ductwork and other parts of an air conditioning and heating system can develop bacteria, mold, and other airborne contaminants. However, there is a simple solution for homeowners: UV light for HVAC systems.

The Benefits of a UV Light for HVAC Systems 

HVAC UV lighting is just what it sounds like – it’s an ultraviolet light that helps to sanitize your HVAC system. UV light is an excellent sterilizer. UV-C, or short wave UV light, has germicidal properties that sanitize the air and help to kill mold and bacteria that might be inside of a system. The light itself is similar to the light we see when the sun is out, but it’s utilized at a much greater intensity in order to destroy bacteria and other contaminants. 

HVAC UV lighting kits have a multitude of benefits for homes: 

  • They can kill harmful bacteria living in an HVAC system, keeping indoor air more sanitized and much healthier for residents. 
  • A UV light for HVAC systems can also help to limit mold growth throughout the system. This helps to prevent respiratory illnesses. 
  • They can destroy organic compounds – to put it simply, they help prevent unpleasant odors. 

What Types of HVAC UV Lighting Are Available?

There are two main types of UV light for HVAC systems: coil sanitizing lights and air sanitizing lights. 

  • Coil sanitizing lights are designed for AC units that are near the evaporator coil. It’s a typical spot for mold and bacteria growth. 
  • Air sanitizing lights are placed in the supply or return vents. They sanitize the air before it’s pushed out to circulate through the home. 

Aireco offers UV light products that you can provide to your customers. From Solaris (a brand exclusively distributed by Aireco), we offer a Whole House Air Purifier (an air sanitizing light) that uses a 10-inch UV lamp and an active photocatalytic oxidation field to take odors and bacteria down at a molecular level throughout the whole house. It even charges these particles, causing them to attract one another and form larger groups that can be filtered, meaning that particles that could slip through other filters won’t get through this one! And maintenance will be a breeze too – it has an indicator for when to change the lamp, electronic monitoring to notify users of any problems, and commercial-grade rugged construction to help it stand up to extended use.

Another way to purify the air in your customer’s home is to install a UV-C light in their HVAC system, and we’ve got you covered there too. The Ultravation UVC Advantage (a coil sanitizing light) is a germicidal UV-C light for an HVAC system that you can install to kill bacteria and viruses inside the HVAC air stream. And it’s not just good for the occupants – it also improves the health and efficiency of the HVAC system itself, making sure that the cooling coils of the HVAC system don’t get covered in bio-film, and stopping the growth of sludge or clogs in HVAC drain pans and drain lines. This choice is also easy to install, with a flexible mounting setup (including a magnet for internal mounting), as well as a mounting plate of galvanized steel for duct board and attaching options. And at every lamp change, the lamp and electronics are renewed, meaning better reliability and longer use. And if that doesn’t sound great to your customers, tell them it’ll save them money on their energy bill with the increased HVAC efficiency!
