UV light can also prevent odours from infiltrating your home, and prevent the drains inside your AC unit and furnace from clogging and causing damage to your home. But don’t just take our word for it: In 2012, researchers at Duke University Medical Center found that using UV lights killed 97% of drug-resistant bacteria (sometimes called superbugs) in hospital rooms.
The two types of UV lights for HVAC are coil sanitizing and air sanitizing lights. Coil lights are for central AC systems, where bacteria build up around the AC coils. The light then kills the germs with every AC cycle. Air sanitizing lights are installed in the return ducts, cleaning the air before it goes back into your system. They can be coordinated to turn on and off with the blower and as such can cost a little more for installation.
