Attacks and Sanitizes Allergens and Pathogens blowing throughout your Heating and Air Conditioning ductwork that can cause:
• SINUS INFECTIONS
INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Most occupants are concerned about indoor air quality (IAQ). Mold, bacteria, viruses, mildew, pet dander and mites are all linked to a host of health problems including eye irritation, headaches, allergies, respiratory problems—triggers for asthma. In fact, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says these pollutants are often two to five times higher indoors than outdoors!
A/C systems are typically inaccessible and a reservoir for mold, bacteria and slime that can circulate throughout any dwelling. According to the American Academy of Asthma and Immunology, more than 1 out of 4 Americans suffer from these pollutants—and the Center for Disease Control says it’s even higher now! Bio Shield UV-C Air Sanitizer’s (BUVAS) powerful UV-C lamp destroys these irritants.
HOW IT WORKS!
- Air Sanitizer is easily installed inside your Heating and Air Conditioning ductwork.
- Short wave (UV-C) kills or de-activates bacteria, viruses and other infectious organisms already there and stops them from reappearing in the future.
- Produces Sanitized air flow contributing to a healthier home environment.
- There is no guessing if it is on or if it is working. The UVC Sanitizer has a viewable glow that is visible from the outside of the installation to let you know it is working.
IMPROVES A/C EFFICIENCY
The UVC light continuously cleans the coil and drain pan, making your system run more efficiently. This lowers HVAC energy costs by improving heat transfer and increasing net cooling capacity resulting in less energy use and lower utility bills.
Guards your family 24/7/365 for less than operating a 25 Watt light bulb.
• Lowers operation costs of running the a/c system
• Reduces or eliminates airborne mold, bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores
• Quick and Easy Installation
• Produces no ozone, fumes or other secondary contaminants
• Stops mold and bacteria growth inside your central air conditioning system
• Operates continuously at maximum efficiency without the need for constant adjustment
• Eliminates need for costly duct cleaning
ELIMINATES NEED FOR DUCT WORK CLEANING
Three tiers of benefits
Level 1—HVAC system efficiency: UV-C eliminates and/or prevents the buildup of organic material on the surfaces of cooling coils, drain pans, and interior duct surfaces. This improves airflow, returns and maintains the heat-transfer levels of cooling coils to “as-built” capacity, and reduces maintenance.
Level 2—IAQ: UV-C improves airflow levels and eliminates organic material on surfaces, which helps improve indoor air quality (IAQ) by reducing pathogens and odors. This improves occupant productivity, boosts comfort levels, and reduces sick time.
Level 3—economic impact: The impact that UV-C has on mechanical systems and occupants translates into substantial economic benefits, including reductions in energy consumption, energy cost, and carbon footprint. On average, UV-C slashes 10% to 25% of HVAC energy use.

I have an 1800ft home and understand I need Min 36 watt.
Is this correct? If so, will your unit meet my needs for “whole house”?
If the HVAC unit you have installed is suitable for your home size, then you can just install one BUVAS unit and that will be sufficient.
Please call if you have further questions. 1-888-856-6322
biting mites are the question. is there a yes or no answer that your product will kill them. thank you in advance. it’s been such a problem.
It Sanitizes Allergens and Pathogens blowing throughout your Heating and Air Conditioning ductwork. It is not made to kill Biting Mites.
do you remove the plastic coating on the bulb
The teflon seal is placed around the bulb to protect the consumer in case the lamp shatters upon shipping. This should not be removed.
Can these be used in a rigid fiberglass plenum?
Fiberglass insulation holds up quite well to UV-C. The UV-C will not affect the “glass” component in the insulation, it can affect the binders in the insulation, but overall we tend to not worry about insulation if it is glass based.
What is the wavelength of the lamp in nanometers?
Thank you for your interest in our Bio Shield UV-C Air Sanitizer System. We confirm that the lamp that comes with the Bio Shield System is 254 nanometers.
Do you have it available with the 12 inch bulb? Amazon only shows with 18 inch and i have 16 inch duct
Is this product UL listed?
We confirm the UV Air Sanitizer is UL listed/approved.
Is there a shorter replacement lamp that you could buy? Preferable something 12-14”
Will one light cover 3500sqft home?
You need 1 UV-C light per AC Unit. If one AC unit controls the whole home, you only need 1. If you have multiple AC units, we would recommend a UV-C light for all. The square footage of the home doesn’t matter.
I purchased two UV units and have already installed one above my evaporation coil. I would like to install the other in the air return system before air passed through my air filter. Is there a recommended distance from the filter that I should place the UV unit?
If you are installing the UV-C lamp on the return side of the air duct, we ask that you place the lamp 20-24 inches away from the air filter. However, if your home only has one a/c system, only one uv-c light is needed. If you have any further questions, please call us.
I’ve been reading a bunch of reviews and this product seems to be the best bang for the buck, so thanks for that. I really want to use LEDs so it can last longer and use less electricity though and I haven’t seen anything like that on the market (other than black lights for parties and plants). What are your thoughts on LEDs for HVAC? Not powerful enough? If you offered this product option, I would probably buy it.
We don’t offer any LED products so we cannot comment.
Do you make a unit that is not for the heating system but for home room use?
I see your product is on back order. Is there a way to reserve one when it becomes available again?
Yes. Just add it to your cart and purchase it. When the merchandise comes in they will be shipped by the order received.
How can I order, I do not see any place on your web site to place and order
I Cant find your bioshield anywhere since I bought one in feburary from Amazon. I would like to purchase another one for a air purifier Im building.
Can this be installed in the plenum?
We confirm that the the UVC light can be installed in to the plenum as long as the insulation is non-metallic.
The Phillips bulb that came with the unit is too long. Is there an alternative (shorter Phillips bulb) I can buy? What is the bulb number for the shorter one?
https://www.mrscrappy.com/UV-C-12_Replacement_Lamp.html The item is out of stock right now, but you can pre-order it. We expect them back in stock in a few weeks.
Does the duct work need to be cleaned before the installation?
No. It does not need to be cleaned.
What wavelength is emitted by the UV lamp?
The UV-C germicidal wavelength is 253.7 nm.
how do i purchase on of these
Can the UV light be installed UNDER the coil so that is sterilizes the drip pan as well? Or does it have to be above the coil?
The UV-C lamp can be installed above or below the heating coil. There should be no plastic present as UV-C can break down plastic materials over time.
The bulb that came with the unit is 17″ made by Philips 20 Watt T5 4P-SE. The Amazon website says it 25 watt unit. Did I get the wrong bulb.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the link to the bulb that you purchased.
Is this proven to kill the Covid-19 virus?
We confirm the UV has been shown through studies to be effective in inactivating most pathogens including SARS/Coronavirus. However, the EPA restricts products making claims about Covid19 specifically. Unfortunately, we cannot claim that it kills Covid19, but we can claim that it kills viruses circulating in your HVAC system when exposed to the UV-C light.
The 17″ bulb that you recommend for this unit is a 20 watt, 45 volt bulb. The transformer is only 24 volts. What are the bulb ratings when operated at 24 volts?
The 17” UV-C Air Sanitizer lamp is rated at 24V AC/DC-50/60 HZ 1 Amp which is a step down from the 110V-120V wall outlet when operated by a 24 volt Adaptor. Call us directly if you need more information.
I’m interested in the Bio-Shield UV-C Air Sanitizer. My plenum size is quite tight – if I want to order the package with a 12″ bulb, what is the model number? and is the cost different than the 16″ bulb assembly?
https://www.mrscrappy.com/Products-UV-C_Air_Sanitizer.html They are the same price.
My bulb has a plastic ring around the middle. Should it be removed? Or is it supposed to be on the bulb?
That is a Teflon covering to protect you against a shattered bulb. No need to remove it.
will it work just as good in the return to keep the coils clean? My filters are in the ceiling. Thanks
