Why be concerned about the air in
your home? Here are some facts:
According to the EPA* indoor air pollution levels
can be up to five times higher than outdoor levels.
Homes that have been tightened up to save on
energy costs can also cause a build-up of pollutants.
The indoor air coils on your air conditioning
system can be a breeding ground for surface mold.
The level of indoor air pollutants may be of
particular concern because most people spend about 90% of their
Proven, Powerful and Safe
Why consider Ultraviolet (UV) technology for
If you are concerned about the quality of air in your home --
especially controlling airborne bacteria and mold growth, then
this new, safe technology is for you. Used for
over 50 years in hospitals, laboratories, schools and other
public buildings, Honeywell has now adapted this powerful
solution for homes.
How does UV germicidal technology work?
Ultraviolet-C (UVC) is a high-energy light
that alters the Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid of the microbial cell
-- disabling it and making it unable to reproduce.
Honeywell UV Air Treatment Systems are added
to your heating and air conditioning equipment and duct
systems to inactivate bio-aerosols flowing through your
The UV coil irradiation model kills a vast
majority of the surface mold and microorganisms before they
can grow on your heating and air conditioning system.
Why is this technology superior to other
duct-mounted germicidal solutions available on the market?
The Honeywell Ultraviolet Air Treatment
System is a proven, powerful and safe solution to help
improve the air in your home.
UV is a clean solution that does
not use chemicals or other substances, such as ozone, that
can create other problems.
The units are mounted in the
heating and air conditioning ductwork making it a
whole-house system that can affect the air flowing
throughout your house. Portable units only cover a small
space so they are much less effective in air treatment

For Surface Mold Removal --
Kills Up to 99.9%
Conditioning Coil Model
A "coil" model bathes
the indoor cooling coil with UV light to eliminate
up to 99.7% of the surface mold in ductwork that
could rob system efficiency.
For Airborne Pollutant Removal
-- Kills up to 87%
UV Return Air Model
A "return air" unit
continuously emits UV energy that inactivates
airborne bacteria as it passes by the lamp. Choose a
single or dual lamp model depending on your needs.
