Convert your AC system into a full-home air purifier with our HVAC Coil Scrubber
The benefits of UV-C light in sterilizing the air we breathe have been well documented over the last decade. The air in our homes is full of bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other microbial contaminants. The UV-C segment of the electromagnetic spectrum quickly and effectively deactivates the RNA molecules in all of these microorganisms leaving your air fresh and clean.
The problem is that with weaker UV-C lights, the rays often do not have time to fully irradiate the microbial parasites as the air flows through the system. A large part of this problem is because UV-C light degrades logarithmically instead of linearly. What that means is that if you have 10 mw/cm2 of UV-C light 1 foot from the light source, at 2 feet you do not have 5 mw/cm2 but probably 1 or 2 mw/cm2. This rapid degradation makes it so that harmful bacteria and viruses can escape the cleaning power of UV-C if they travel quickly or stay far from the light source.
The solution is to make the UV-C lights as powerful as possible and place them as close to the source of contaminants. This is what brings us to the GermAwayUV Coil Scrubber. By placing the UV bulbs a mere inches from the coil (the breeding ground for fungus, bacteria, and viruses in your AC system), and using the most powerful bulbs available, we are able to improve the efficacy of the standard HVAC UV-C system substantially.
Upon installing this system in your home HVAC system, you should notice a marked improvement in the air that you breathe as the UV-C light emitted by the system will tackle allergy-causing microbes as well as fumes and residues from household cleaners, paints, chemicals, and other VOC (volatile organic compounds).
This system will also prevent your AC coil from getting soiled prematurely and needing professional costly cleaning. By eliminating the parasites that lower the yield of your AC coils you will be improving the performance of your AC system while also improving the quality of the air you breathe in your home.

Which system is right for me?
Generally speaking, you want to get as much UV-C intensity as close to the coil as possible. If you have a W-shaped coil, it is considered best practices to install one bulb in each of the crevices in the W, using the 72 watt system. If however, you have a simple coil without much space, you can install the smaller 36 watt system.
What about the electricity cost?
Many people are reasonably concerned that having 2 powerful UV-C bulbs running all year can cost a fortune. Luckily, that is a misconception. With average electricity costs in the US, running this powerful AC coil scrubber costs only about $6.31 per month in electricity. Certainly not free but a fair price to pay for cleaner healthier air without harmful mold and fungal plant parasites.
- Power: 72 watts/36 watts
- Bulb Life: 10,000 hours
- Bulb Length: 16.1 inches
- Wavelength: 254nm (UV-C)
UVC Output (measured on EIT UV Power Puck II)
- @1" around bulbs output is 8.5 mw/cm2
- @5" around bulbs output is 4 mw/cm2
- @10" around bulbs output is 1.75 mw/cm2
* mw/cm2 (millwatts per centimeter squared) is a measure of the light intensity. To get dosage (joules), you need to multiply the intensity by the time.
This fixture incorporates a lamp which emits ultraviolet radiation harmful to the eyes and skin. Precautions must be taken to insure that personnel are not exposed to direct or reflected light.
