Honeywell RUVLAMP1-C

A heating and ventilation air conditioning system (HVAC) can be incredibly convenient, but the air quality in your home can be diminished as a result. For this reason Honeywell have brought the RUVLAMP1/C to the market. This tremendous little air treatment system easily screws into your central air duct. It has a very simplistic look but does a very important job in terms of the air in your home.

Review Details

Anyone with an HVAC system will know that maintenance is a must. Not only so the system lasts, but also in terms of overall cleanliness. However, many of these systems no matter how clean will still allow airborne bacteria into the air. This can cause a variety of illnesses and trigger allergy symptoms. With the Honeywell RUVLAMP1/C this problem will be a thing of the past.

The technology behind this unit is similar to that used in hospitals, commercial kitchens and other environments that need sterile air. Using ultra violet technology, this air treatment system will kill 70% of certain airborne bacterium that could be affecting your health. Additionally, Honeywell has used SmartLamp technology so the lamps with this unit are made to last.

What We Liked

  • Easy Installation
    Simply drill a hole using the provided template and the RUVLAMP1/C can be installed into your central air duct and is ready to use in minutes.
  • Advanced Health Protection
    This air treatment system from Honeywell will kill 70% of airborne allergy triggering particles and other bacteria that can cause illness.
  • Simple Lamp Replacement
    Replacing a lamp on the RUVLAMP1/C is among the fastest on the market. Your unit will light up to tell you a replacement is required and then it’s just a case of a “twist and remove”.
  • No Guesswork
    You will always know when your air treatment system is working. The minute it’s powered on, a light will illuminate to let you know it’s in the process of killing bacteria.

What We Didn't Like

  • Durability
    This air treatment system comes with a 1 year warranty but several consumers have noted it does breakdown soon after this has expired.
  • Replacement Bulbs
    Currently, the replacement bulbs can only be purchased through Honeywell which means it’s impossible to shop around for a less expensive option.


The Honeywell RUVLAMP1/C generally rates very highly among users. In fact, although it’s recommended you start with a clean HVAC system, the cost of this air treatment system is less than one fifth of some professional cleaning services that won’t ensure continuous clean air. The UV technology behind this model is effective and will help with allergy symptoms as well as reduce annoying odors that can come from systems like this. In our opinion, this is well worth the investment.
