What Does Mold in The HVAC Look Like?
Here are some pictures from an inspection that I did in Alexandria,
Virginia this year. As you can see, it is pretty obvious when there
is mold growing in your air handler.
If you are suspicious about your indoor air quality, just taking
off the cover to your furnace can be “enlightening”.
How To Install a UV Lamp On Your Duct?
Most UV light sanitizers will come with a paper template for the
mounting procedure. It will be installed on your duct where your
furnace or air handler is located (here is my detailed guide on
installing HVAC UV lights).
I recommend following the size and placement of the holes on the
mounting template for your UV light system.

You will first need to drill a pilot hole at the install spot, and
then you will need to use a saw bit and drill in the hole.
The light bulb(s) will go through the hole in the sheet metal duct,
and the UV light unit is secured to the ductwork with screws and
possibly metal foil tape. Usually, the unit will just be plugged
into a regular outlet in your utility room or closet but you also
have the option of wiring the unit with your furnace (an
electrician may be required for that).
How To Pick The Best UV Light For Your HVAC?
There are a few considerations to take into account when buying an
KNOCK ultraviolet air sanitizer. There are generally two types of UV light bulbs, the long and
If the unit you are buying has a longer bulb, it may be more
difficult to install if your furnace is in a very small utility
closet. However, with a longer bulb, there is more “surface area”
so the light may shine along more areas increasing it’s
Another factor to consider is the equipment that comes with the
purchase. Some UV light systems come with everything you need for
the installation including the sheet metal drill bit that you will
need to make holes in the ductwork. Almost all UV air sanitizers
will come with a few screws to mount the system onto the duct.
Another thing to consider is the cord length. Most UV light systems
come with a power cord that is 6′ to 8′ in length. If your utility
closet doesn’t have a regular 3-pronged outlet, you may need to buy
an extension cord that will go to the closest outlet.
And again, you can also wire the ultraviolet purifier into the air
handler electrical system, and even wire it so it turns on only
when the system is on. An electrician or contractor may be required
for custom wiring.
How Are UV Light Sanitizers Different From Other Air Purifiers?
UV lights are different than furnace filters because they kill
microbes while they are growing on the surfaces of the ductwork,
the A/C coil, the drip pan, and other surfaces.
Furnace filters are a very important part of indoor air quality,
and I recommend changing them monthly. However, I have seen many
air handlers that had very good paper 3M filters, but on the inside
there was extensive mold growth.
Indoor furnaces and air handling units are perfect breeding grounds
for microorganisms like mold and viruses because they are dark,
there is moisture, and a prevalent food source in the form of dust.
There are “point of use” indoor air purifiers, like the stand alone
units you can place in your living room or bedroom. But these units
will not affect the air quality of the whole home like how a UV
light inside your HVAC can do.
