    You can get bulbs designed for the coil, but their function is going to be to keep the coil clean and mutate anything that gets trapped on the coil. Air stream bulbs should have some sort of collector plate, like carbon, that will attract bacteria, viruses, etc and hold them so the bulb can do its job. For air quality (purification), I would put one of these in the return first. For clean coils and efficiency I would put one inside the A coil. Best case scenario, one of each with an IQ Air installed for top of the line filtration and purification.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on which uv bulbs to carry? Still trying to feel this one out.

    Nice work. Not a big fan of tape and purple primer but nice. I was always told to install uv light close to coil for it to work. Also that filter wont last a year with uv next to it. Most of your bacteria will form on the evap

    Great looking job!

    Nice and neat. A+. Did they in fact use a bender outside or 90's?

    I hate using one more joint than I have to, but the the guys I work with think it's faster. They are certainly right if left to me, but I'm wondering if bending is becoming a lost art because it's easier to braze in a bunch of 90's and 45's?

    Solder and Heat Shrink is your friend on this one. Makes for a nice clean install.

    nice change out, the condensate piping looks very nice as well. I don't like to prime further than the pipe goes in to the hub but it looks good. Those are elbows on the lineset correct? If you don't have a bender or pipe expander you should def invest in one. They are the two best tools I ever bought, it will pay for itself in no time with not needing fittings and it is much easier to weld one side of a joint than two

    all of the bends in the tubing are done with benders. there are not fittings in that system.

    In maryland and va area the tape has to be ul listed or it can fail inspection
