The Freshaire Blue-Tube UV light system is the most popular germicidal UV light for HVAC systems in the world. This TUV-BTST is a 1-year bulb (2-year also available) and features a high-voltage, or line-voltage (110-277 VAC) setup. (Both the ER and ST models will support one or two year lamps and the lamps are interchangeable)
Mold can thrive in the cool, moist interior of the central air system. Blue-Tube UV is proven effective at sterilizing mold and other biological contaminants. Moldy coils shorten the life of the air system and waste energy by reducing efficiency. Blue-Tube UV kills the mold and reduces the need for system maintenance.

So how does Blue-Tube work?
Scientists have long known about the germ-killing properties of UVC light. This frequency of light is filtered out by the Earthís atmosphere, so microorganisms have no defense against it. The UVC light works by scrambling their DNA which prevents those mold spores, bacteria, and viruses from reproducing.
