    Honeywell uv2400u5000

    Anyone use this before? Do uv lights help with allergies? Will it produce ozone?

    UV lights disinfect. They don't create ozone.

    So will they help with allergens or am i better off using a merv 11 filter? In my case 16x25x4. I can get a smoking deal on one of these so i might be willing to try. My wife has allergies and we are finding out that our 18 month old son does to.

    Furnace filters were originally designed to protect the equipment from dust, not clean up your indoor air quality.
    Most of the dust and allergens in your house never make it back to the furnace at all.
    Try portable air purifiers or a HEPA system. You might want to think about changing the air in the house with an HRV or something.

    See if there's a contractor in your area that specializes in indoor air quality.
