    Default UV light for evaporator coil in air circulator?

    I have a heat pump system for heating and cooling. During the semiannual checkup, the service person recommended installing a UV light on the evaporator coil of the air circulator unit to improve air quality and prolong its life. Have others heard of this and done this?

    UV lights are supposed to kill Bacteria, Mold, fungi, spores, and improve Air Quality. I have also heard that Hospitals use them which would make sense but that's hear say as I have yet to any work in a Hospital so haven't seen one. There easy to install, one hole, two screws, two wires. As for using it on a Heat Pump System, absolutely, especially when there could be days when you use A/C during the day and Heat Pump at night contributing to what is called Dirty Sock Syndrome and Bacteria, etc. Good Luck!!!
