Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GHFL UV Bulb Monopoly?
The Bulb is proprietary to the fixture. The Bulb is 'exclusively' sold by HD. So ... once you buy the fixture you inherited an annual renewal fee of $49 + shipping to HD. This is a closed market. In a free market the bulb may cost 19. as both other manufacturers and retailers could compete. Clever concept. As for the UV output how can one measure or calibrate? It 'seems to be' effective but that 'seems to be' subjective as the bulb "should be replaced annually" so its effect diminishes with time. One cannot tell a new bulb from an old bulb with any objective criteria.( ie: an air filter for an AC, you can see when it needs replacement.) This is hard product to therefore review yet the technology itself has strong evidence of effectiveness, so I keep renewing.

This UV lamp keeps the inside of your air handler free of mold/mildew.
I had problems with mold and mildew in my new air handler. Living in Florida, we are constantly dealing with high levels of humidity. I don't let anything get out of control, including keeping my air conditioning system working at peak efficiency. Still, I would notice mold and mildew accumulating above the cooling fins and on the fan.
I installed one of Air Health's UV lamps above the cooling fins and after one year I am pleased to say that I no longer have a mold/mildew problem. The UV lamp does not allow any kind of bacteria to grow. The cooling fins now stay very clean, allowing my air conditioning system to work as it was intended to. This is one product that is well worth it's money!

Genuine Air+Healtth UV Bulb came in its original box inside a large box and was protected by lots of padding materials. It came just a day or two after ordering with regular shipping! I have two of the UV Air + Health Sanitizer units. One in each in each heating /air conditioning unit. The bulbs are very high quality and last much longer than some other UV products we have bought in the past. They really improves air quality. Thank you Home Depot for another great ordering experience!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Online4 Great Product, I have recommended to all
We have owned this product for 8 years (as of 2011). Most people will not purchase this product because of its initial price,but I KNOW it works well and as advertised. We had 5 members in this household - 2 elderly, 2 middle aged and 1 youth and the colds just seemed to go around in circles. As soon as one of got well, another would get ill. After the VERY SIMPLE 20 minute install of this germicidal device into the furnace air return duct, all of the sickness just stopped. Now if someone gets a cold, it is rare that it gets passed to someone else. I also replace the bulb every year as recommended. THIS IS A GREAT PRODUCT!!! What you spend on this item you will SAVE in doctors' bills and lost time at work. I recommend installation between furnace filter and furnace intake so unit is not exposed to extreme heat & cold (as per instructions). The necessary cutting tools are included with the main unit purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by margbel works wonders to enhance air quality
I was having troubles with mold in my house as evident on the mold plates that we put out for testing the mold in the air. After installing this system, I redid my mold plates and they plates were great, almost all the mold was completely gone. Works well.

I have had a uv air sanitizer on my furnace for the past 10 years, and I highly recommend it for anyone with allergies. I think every home should have one. The air in my home is much cleaner,

Works silently killing bacteria that may form inside AC coils and air plenums. Many professional medical services use them for purification.

Bulb cost is very expensive and has loose metal in it and am having trouble with it staying lit while the old one works just fine.
