Planning on installing an ultra-violet air purifier in line of sight and upstream of our Space-Gard 2400. Do we need to worry about reactions between the plastics in the 2400 and the UV light?

Consumer question:

Hello, we are planning on installing an ultra-violet air purifier in line of sight and upstream of our Space-Gard 2400.  Do we need to worry about reactions between the plastics in the 2400 and the UV light?


Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for contacting us with regards to your model 2400 Air Cleaner. The plastics used in our media air cleaner are not UV resistant. They will break down over prolonged exposure to UV light. Our recommendation would be to either install the UV light near the evaporative coil of the Air Conditioning system or to cover the exposed plastics with UV-reflective tape, such as aluminum-faced tape.
