    Coils & filters are breeding grounds for mold & bacteria so were do you put your uv at.In the return or above the coil?


    I put it near the coil.

    I prefer post "air handler"... the issue that comes about is plastic drain pans which will fall apart if they are fairly close to the light... I think the idea of putting it before the air filter is slightly flawed, I think air filtration needs to be staged, ie, (1st) larger particulate is picked up in the media filter (2nd) the UV light destroys any mold spores and such... With that said, you really shouldn't count on your UV light to prevent the growth of mold on your coils, just doesn't do a good job of killing mold on the other, dark, side of the coil... Good maintenance involving a coil cleaning should be done yearly...
