Welcome to your resource for Ultravation replacement UV lamps, filters and accessories.
Keep your environmental improvement systems running like new
Ultravation® MERV11 and MERV13 filters capture and hold large amounts dirt, dust, pollen, lint and other contaminants in layered fibers manufactured with graduating density—so the filter effectively catches large and very small particles with high efficiency and long life.

Find the genuine replacement lamp for your Ultravation HVAC disinfection system including EZUV, UltraMAX, Photronic (UVC and UVA), EZ-light 6P, M-Series, UVP-Series and UV lamps for selected commercial applications. UV disinfection for HVAC improves air quality and makes HVAC equipment more efficient without generating by-products or ozone. Learn more here.
Select this option if you own a UVPhotoMAX™, UV Catalyst™, Solaris® or Photronic™ or portable PCO air purification system to get replacement Dual-Spectrum, T3™ or UV-A replacement UV lamps, well as replacement photocatalyst modules. Learn more about the benefits of photocatalytic (PCO) air purifiers and photocatalytic air purification technology.

The Benefits of UV Disinfection for HVAC systems
UV is germicidal and stops the mold, fungus and bacteria laden sludge that clogs HVAC drain pans and drain lines. Stopping mold growth in HVAC equipment can bring allergy relief, because reduces or altogether eliminates the large quantity of allergens that can be generated inside the air conditioner as the result of mold infestation.
A noticeable freshening of the air is due to the prevention of “HVAC dirty-sock smell” and other “air conditioning smells” that result from bio-contamination of the HVAC system.
UV helps optimize cooling efficiency! Energy is saved because HVAC bio-growth forms a film that insulates the cooling coil from the passing air it is supposed to cooling. With UV the film is eliminated along with its insulating effect so the HVAC system runs less. Increased efficiency with less wear and tear are important cost saving benefits of HVAC disinfection with UV.
Ultravation UV lights lead the industry in UV intensity (they themselves operate very efficiently), the process produces no by-products or ozone.
What is MERV and how are MERV 13 or MERV 11 different?
MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. It is the industry standard filter performance rating system as developed by American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers. The higher the rating, the more effective the filter is at capturing smaller particles.
MERV 11 performance standard provides 85% efficiency for particles 3 to 10 microns in size. Pollen and mold can be as small as 5 microns.
The MERV 13 performance standard provides 90% capture efficiency for particles 3 to 10 microns in size. MERV 13 filters also capture 75% of particulates as small as 0.3 microns –10 times smaller (tobacco smoke particles fall in the 0.3 range).
Due to layered construction Ultravation MERV 11 and MERV 13 filters have a lifespan of up to 1 year, depending on the condition of the air. When higher particulate levels are known to exist the filter should be inspected at 6 months
How often should I replace a UV lamp?
1-year replacement: Residential UV lamps should be replaced every 9000 hours or approximately every 12 months. For people with respiratory conditions or other acute sensitivities, we strongly recommend keeping to an annual lamp replacement schedule.
2-year replacement: If your UV lamp is strictly used for keeping coils clean on your HVAC unit, you can save money and the environment when you use your lamps for their maximum two-year life span. However, UV lamps must be replaced after the maximum two year installation period.
UV lamps running beyond three years may contribute to excessive power consumption of the ballast which can cause overheating of the power supply and lamp, further deteriorating the effectiveness of the product and/or cause system failure.
If the UV lamps are not to be replaced within a 3-year period, turn off or otherwise disconnect power from the system until new lamps can be replaced.
Replacing UV lamps: Important information to know before attempting to do-it-yourself
It is recommended that a professional HVAC contractor replace your UV lamps. UV light is a powerful tool for disinfecting the air and damp surfaces within your HVAC system, however it can also be harmful to your eyes and skin if either come in direct contact with the UV.
If you choose to do-it-yourself, please heed these warnings when replacing your UV lamps:
WARNING: UV Hazard. Always protect eyes from ultraviolet light. NEVER look at UV lamps in operation. Unplug or disconnect power before re-lamping or servicing.
WARNING: Severe eye damage or temporary blinding may occur.
WARNING: DO NOT operate outside of Air Handler. Mount product to duct first.
WARNING: No openings in duct are allowed which would give direct line-of-sight to the UV light.
The above warnings are also listed in your Ultravation UV system Owner's Manual. If you need assistance replacing your UV lamps, please contact an HVAC professional.
In the event of accidental lamp breakage or after replacement of the ultraviolet lamp, please ensure that the lamp is disposed of in accordance with local and state environmental laws regarding fluorescent lamps containing mercury.
