Purchased, Installed and working great for a year
By E. Leach
I purchased the Honeywell UV light system from a major home supply company as I was having a mold smell in my HVAC system in the summertime. We had the vents cleaned and sprayed with anti mold/fungal spray and two weeks later it was back. We had our HVAC company come out and tell us the coils were dirty and covered with some mold on the downstream side. They would have to remove the entire coil box from our crawlspace (cut the refrigriant lines!!!), break it open, clean it out and then replace the entire unit for the low, low price of $500. Forget it. I bought a can of coil cleaner, put on my rubber gloves and safety goggles and got into the unit from the upstream and downstream sides, cleaned it and installed this unit to keep the mold from growing.
The unit itself comes with the bulb and socket with a plug and good instructions on how to install. You will need to have an outlet near by which I didn’t. (Needed to run a new outlet near the install site)You will also need a hole saw that can cut through metal or a saw and a very steady hand. It can be done, just be carefull to cut the hole correctly and clean up the shavings.
Installed, plugged in and working fine. No more mold smell. It’s a quartely check of the bulb to wipe it down and make sure it’s still on. There is no on-off switch, just plug it in and it’s on.
JUST A NOTE: DO NOT PLUG THE BULB IN UNTIL IT’S IN THE DUCTWORK!! DO NOT LOOK AT THE BULB WHEN IT’S ON. It can damage your eyesight. Install the bulb in the system and then plug it in. There is a little blue light on the face of the unit that lets you know it’s on.
It’s an easy install and does work.

Item works perfectly. Cheaper than Lowes, Home Depot, or other dept stores. The HVAC guy wanted to charge us $500 for the light and install. I bought it on Amazon for a little over a hundred bucks and had it installed in 30 min. My wife’s allergy problems stopped a few days after install. Product is def worth it!

Honeywell RUVLAMP/1C UV Air Treatment System
By J. R. Royce
Honeywell RUVLAMP1/C UV Air Treatment System
I recently purchased and installed this unit in the return side of my HVAC system. It comes well packaged and secure. The instructions are very clear and very specific about the dangers of looking at the UV light when it’s operating (DON’T DO IT!). A 2″ metal cutting hole saw and a 3/32″ drill bit are the only tools required. It comes with an installation template marking the center of the 2″ hole and the 3/32″ holes. Installation is a snap. It also includes several warning labels (self adhesive) to apply below the unit and 2 other locations to alert service personnel about it. I highly recommend this unit. I’ll update this in a few months after it’s been running for awhile.
