The Germ-killing UV Light for Mini-Split AC/HP
Mini-split AC systems are becoming more and more popular worldwide. Unfortunately they are, like all AC systems, prone to internal mold growth. Mold growth robs efficiency and can be a health risk as well. In addition, a wide variety of airborne biological contaminants such as germs, viruses, pollen, and allergens, breed in or are spread by the air system. Until now UV light disinfection systems were too large for mini-splits. Solution is Mini UV.
Existing UV lights are too large for mini-splits so we’ve invented the Fresh-Aire Mini UV System. It features miniature shielded UV lamps only 9” long with a 3/8” diameter – small enough to fit in the tightest of spaces.

Mold thrives in the cool, moist interior of the mini-split AC system. Mini UV is proven effective at sterilizing mold and other biological contaminants. Mold shortens the life of the air system and wastes energy by reducing efficiency. Mini UV kills the mold and reduces the need for system maintenance.
Indoor Air Quality
According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk. Mini UV improves indoor air quality by sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air as it cycles through the central air system.
HOW MINI UV WORKS
Germ-Killing Power of UV-C Light
For over a century scientists have known about the germ-killing properties of UV-C light. Because this frequency of light is filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere microorganisms have no defense against it. It works by scrambling their DNA which prevents them from reproducing.
UV-C light works by penetrating the cell walls of microorganisms and scrambling their DNA. This prevents them from reproducing.
UV-C light kills nearly all biological contaminants including: bacteria, mold, viruses, and allergens.
