No ionization. It emits UV that kills bacteria, viruses, and other germs just like sunlight.

I installed mine to shine on the coils. The closer the bulb is to the coils the more effective it will be in disinfecting them. I leave mine run continuously and replace the bulb once a year.

Can this be powered from the blower circuit (120vac)? Will this extend or reduce the life of the ...

Answer

Yes, that is how mine is setup in our current home, and how it was for several years in my previous home before this. That said, I wouldn't buy this unit. I've gone through several over the years mostly due to ballast failure in the device. And before someone says it is because it was on the furnace power circuit I should mention that the first failed unit was plugged into an extension cord into an outlet in the basement. It lasted just over a year. The replacement, which went on the furnace circuit, lasted 2.5 years (when we sould the house). In the new house, I purchased another and connected it the same way. Since then it has chewed through 9 bulbs and 2 ballasts. Soon to be three ballasts, and when this one finally fails (bulb or ballast) I'm replacing it with a dual-bulb 95% unit (this one is only 70%) I found online in about the same price range. I've had it with these Honeywell UV light unit.

Easy to install. Performance as promised. The only bad thing is that it stays on permanently, lowering the life of the lamp and consuming energy. There is a model that does this, but it costs more than double, and probably not worth the expense.

Decent UV lamp in good design
UV lamp and setup like this are very well designed, but Honeywell does price them little on the higher side. Such set, made in China, should be closer to $30 in production + shipping and around $50-60 in stores. For its purpose, however, it is doing its job very well. I did not use it specifically for air ducts but from my installation I can see that the process is very straightforward and can be done by anyone.

screws must be tight or it wont work.
Honeywell has installed a safety switch in this light. The screws must be tight or it won't light. They do jot mention the switch but they do tell you to secure it with the screws. Be sure that you have a suitable backer if it is going into fiberglass duct board or it wont work. UV light can really harm you eyes or the eyes of your children. Make sure that you can not see direct light from the bulb.
