Eliminator UV-C

Eliminator UV-C for your Furnace/Air Conditioner (14” & 20” sizes)

Eliminator RPT Series lamps irradiate cooling coils and air streams inside ductwork, so mold and bacteria never have the chance to gather and disperse. The Eliminator Series features exclusive, externally accessible, RPT high output lamps that plug directly into existing receptacles near your Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) unit. These high output lamps provide twice the output of standard UVC lamps and are the easiest to replace in the industry - no tools are needed, and no need to remove panels.

Why would I install UV-C in my furnace at home?

The use of UV-C in your HVAC system at home reduces the biofilms on the coil and keeps mold and bacteria out of the drain pan. This does several beneficial things:

  • Keeps unwanted microorganisms from spreading in your home
  • Allows it to be more thermally efficient in transferring heat to cool or heat your home - saving you energy
  • Prevents the blower from working too hard to push air through a partially clogged coil – extending your system life and reducing potential repairs

In addition, the ultraviolet lamp stays on at all times, providing the secondary benefit of reducing microbial contaminants in the air in your home. 

Can I install an Eliminator UV-C unit in my home HVAC system by myself?

The first difference you will notice between the Eliminator RPT UV-C system and others is the quick, straightforward installation of the equipment.

 So, if you have…

  • a drill
  • a 1-inch hole saw (or a step bit that goes up to a 1” hole)
  • a Phillips head screwdriver
  • basic working knowledge of where the coil or return air duct is located in your furnace
  • a 120V receptacle

…then you can install this system!

What size UVC light do I require?

Looking at the size of filter your furnace uses will generally give you a good indication of the maximum size of UV-C lamp your HVAC system can accommodate at the coil. Many newer homes can accommodate a 20” ultraviolet lamp with no problem. If your system takes 20x25 or 20x24 filters, you are good to go with a 20” UV-C lamp system.

Some older homes, and some homes that have multiple, smaller HVAC systems for multi-zone setups, will require the smaller 14” UV-C lamp size.

Why is the Eliminator RPT the right UV-C for HVAC solution for me?

This streamlined system features:

  • Exclusive RPT high-output UV-C lamps provide twice the output of standard UVC lamps
  • No complex wiring – power pack plugs directly into existing receptacles near your furnace
  • Easiest UV lamps to replace in the industry - no tools needed and no need to remove panels
  • Sure Seal connectors on power cable provide moisture-resistance while allowing for fast and easy installation

Ask about our optional UV-emitting shatterproof coating, which provides an additional level of security and can be used with all American Ultraviolet UVC systems. If broken, these lamps retain all fragments of quartz and mercury within the sleeve and maintain the sterility of the HVAC environment.

Prolonged, direct exposure to UVC light can cause temporary skin redness and eye irritation. American Ultraviolet systems are designed with safety in mind and, when properly installed by a professional contractor, do not allow exposure to UV irradiation and allow for safe operation and maintenance.

None of the American Ultraviolet UVC products detailed above are certified, or approved under any applicable laws, as a medical device, and as such, American Ultraviolet, and its Representatives and Distributors, do not currently intend for them to be used as medical devices anywhere globally. Products have not been evaluated by the FDA.
