Google "Freshairuv.com" This is the primary group that I have used over the years. Great factory support.

Honeywell is decent. Beware that there is a lot of crap out there. All UV is not created equal. Some online companies are trying to pass off the fish tank uv crap for air purification If a websites makes their UV product sound like the second coming of Jesus, beware. UV is not the entire answer. It is part of the solution in a group of means to a better end.

Good luck to you.

UV or not to UV?

Another important issue is whether the company is going to be in business 5 yrs from now and have replacement bulbs and ballasts. LOTS of trendy devices come into the market and then disappear later once it gets saturated. I always like name brand companies like Honeywell, Lennox, Carrier, Trane as they have parts for 20 yrs. Some of the others are hopeful at best.
