Honeywell Ultraviolet
 Germicidal Air
Treatment Systems

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 time indoors.

Proven, Powerful and Safe

  • Why consider Ultraviolet (UV) technology for your home?
    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 ductwork.

    • 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 capacity.

    For Surface Mold Removal -- Kills Up to 99.9% UV Air 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.
