How long does bacteria/ mold/mites have to be exposed to uvc to be effective?
I don’t think it’s long at all, provided bulb is installed and working properly. My only experience with them is in water, but that had a pretty constant flow over it and worked well. These air duct units are commercially available in duct, and supposedly help with scent too.
I’m already running ozone and carbon . awesome tks I’ll give it a try
Looking to do a diy version
Im guessin this is for your intake duct? Use a hepa filter attached to the intake and that should help with spores and mold. This will reduce your exhaust fans cfm tho.
Your right air in .just moved into my first house and funds are super tight till fall so I was just thinking it would be much cheaper .do you know where I can get a 14" or a cpl 8" HEPA intake filters for less than 170$
I use vacuum cleaner bags that I cut up and secure to my exhaust fan and intake fans - I do it to prevent pollen from getting out of my breeding tent or into my flower tent.
Nice I like ,tks !!!
Heppa bags are cheap enough;)!
I love this site I figure things out that I would never thought up on my own and I’m told I’m pretty imaginative lol:)
This link https://www.bghydro.com/catalogsearch/result/?cat=0&q=hepa+filters has the hepa filters and boxes. Ive never tried the dust shroom so I cant speak on that.
I have this but a 4 inch version
This cartridge goes inside the box and yes they are cheap.
I should have checked there they are a great store amazing coustomer service
Wow they sure are cheap
Tks man that’s way cheaper than the options I found
Looks like Grower’s House has what you need as well:
The 14" is almost same price
You could always rig something up with something like this… I know they sell bigger radius but just an example
Not long, but best results should be on the evap coil of the airhandler
