I am ordering a second UV Sanitizer for my Mother's home.
When I installed my first one in my Home, the difference was unbelievable!
I no longer suffer from a stuffy nose at night, and Nasal drip in the Mornings, this is the best product I have ever used that made such a huge difference, in two days time it Sanitized our entire 1800 sq ft under air home, and it was a breeze to install, less than 1/2 hour, they give you excellent templates and even a hole saw cutter. I opted for the plenum / fiberglass duct install and they also supply a clever adaptor for that. I highly recommend this product to anyone who suffers from allergies or contaminated Air systems.

I live in a 20 year old house. When we moved in several years ago my wife had 3 sinus infections in a row. We had the AC system inspected and found out that the ducts were covered in Black Mold. We paid $500 to have the ducts sanitized, a chemical process, but they would not guarantee the work for more than a year.
Since then I've been looking for a simple UV-C system but did not have much luck until I stumbled onto this. The install was a breeze and the effects were noticiable after 24 hours. The old musty house smell is virtually gone. We hope to see more benefits as we enter the Cold/Flu season with 2 little girls.

We recently bought a 40-year old home and the air smelled moldy. So we had the duct cleaned, put in a higher grade air filter and installed this UV sanitizer. Although the first two steps improved the feel and smell of the air much, we noticed a drastic change in the air quality after the UV sanitizer installation. Both my wife and I are extremely glad we installed it to a successful outcome. Most people do not realize how important indoor air quality is. At the recommendation of the Sears duct cleaning professional, we plan to install another UV sanitizer, this time on the return side of the HVAC system whereas the first one was installed right over the coil on the supply side.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by spawnedv Simple to install
Installation took 5 minutes topps, only downside is the drillbit they give you is a wood bit not a metal bit.
I have no idea if it is killing the bacteria or not, but the light is on, you can see it through the sight glass. I wish they would have put a sail switch on it, or a G lead on it to sense the fan was running, so it wasn't on during times the fan isn't turning.
Bought one for a friend and installed it in their house also, no issues with the install.
Wish it was available in the stores also. Great simple installation, I have faith that it will do the job advertised.

Irene flooded my basement and gave me a mold problem. Long story short, I ended up with airborne mold in the upstairs bedrooms. Mold travels via spores so I bought this product and had a relative install it for me. Days later, tested for the mold again and it was gone. In addition, I no longer awaken with congestion so I'm definitely happy with this product. My sister noticed the change in air quality almost immediately, she's sensitive to these things. Installation seemed easy. You will need a drill and an outlet near the point of installation. Be sure to take measurements of the duct itself before installing as the bulb is quite long. I know now that whatever home I live in will have a UV system installed.

This was easy and straight forward to install. I put it in the cold air return line.
The power cord did not reach any outlet in my home. Right now I have it plugged into a heavy duty extension cord. Should be OK until I run another outlet.
Others commented that the hole saw is for wood, not metal. This is true. That being said, the saw worked fine. It would not last long drilling through a lot of metal. A couple times should not be a problem.
I didn't see it discussed anywhere but there is an included adapter plate that is to be used with fiberglass/composite insulated duct work.
I can't speak to the health benefits others discussed. I think the air is better, but ... I buy it again and suggest others consider it.

I just completed the installation of this UV-c light in both of my home air handelers.
Once I completed the 115Vac run to a convenient location near the units, the actual installation of the mounting plates was very simple and straight forward. ( The second unit took about ten minutes to install!
Long power cord. (6' I believe)
Kit includes Hole saw, Saftey glasses and mounting hardware for most situations and a DVD "How To" video.
The supplied mounting screws are slotted sheetmetal.. difficult to drive with a cordless driver.
I substitued self-tapping sheetmetal screws. By doing this I was able to skip predrilling the mounting holes, a real timesaver.
Overall I am quite satisfied.

I think this is a very important product for everyone to put in there home. I found it very easy to install. I called the help line about making sure I put it in the right place. They were very helpful. The only glitch I had was, when drilling the pit hole, I didn't realize I had my drill on reverse. My brother figured that out for me.
I am recommending this product to everyone I know!
I can tell my air in my home is much better. I have year round allergies. I have an air cleaner, and the UV lamp has definitely made me feel better!
