Bio-Shield UV-C Air Sanitizer fixtures are designed specifically for installation in HVACR applications. On existing systems, infestations always exist. Therefore, the best results are obtained when the light is located downstream of and facing the coil. In this location the user can expect the highest efficacy in eliminating surface (coil and plenum), drain pan and airborne microbes. On new systems, it can be placed either up or downstream of the coil and aimed at the coil.
No, installation instructions are available. Depending on the fixture size and style, installation time can average about 15-20 minutes per fixture. The factory must always be involved for infectious disease applications.
Install the UV-C Air Sanitizer in either the supply or return plenum of the warm air heating system. With A/C systems, the best location is over the air conditioning coil.
Yes! The return air plenum is an optional location. We recommend the unit be positioned upstream or before the humidifier. This should prevent the bulb from getting water spots. Water spots will reduce UV output.
Installation can take 10 minutes. We suggest allotting 30 minutes to play it safe.
Moisture collects on the air conditioning coil, creating a damp surface for growth of mold and microorganisms. With the UV bulb over the A/C coil, the bulb will continuously infuse the coil with its rays, successfully disinfecting the air as well as keeping the coil clean.
