HVAC UV lights are very effective at controlling mold inside the air handler (the air conditioning system).
All mold in line-of-sight of the UV bulb will be killed.
It helps in keeping the coil mold-free.
Several clients with respiratory problems are even able to tell if the UV bulb has burned-out due to reduced air quality inside their homes.
And that's not all, there are more benefits for installing the UV light in your HVAC system:
