Air Cleaning HVAC Lights
Air purifying UV lights only turn on when your HVAC kicks on. They are designed to kill bacteria and other particulates that are in the air before they enter your home. These lights are housed within your home’s air ducts.
Coil Cleaning HVAC UV Lights
Coil purifying lights, on the other hand, are always on. They are housed near your indoor evaporator coil and focus on keeping your HVAC’s coils free of bacteria and mold. This is the type of HVAC UV light that most homeowners choose.
