Why is Swordfish Air better than room air purifiers?
Single-room units are designed to be used in one room at a time and can only purify a limited area, often as little as 200 square feet. Because Swordfish Air is installed into your central air system, it is able to disinfect the air in your entire house with virtually no maintenance - no filters to change and nothing to clean. Also, Swordfish Air costs just ⅓ the price of less-effective room units so you’ll save both time and money.
What’s included with Swordfish Air?
Each Swordfish Air unit comes with:
- A Swordfish Air unit
- A Swordfish Air mounting plate
- A Swordfish Air 36W UVC lamp
- 6’ power cord
- 2” metal-cutting hole drill bit for easily installation

Where should I install Swordfish Air? Return or Supply duct?
For optimum air purification, we recommend that your Swordfish Air be installed in the return (inbound) duct of your home’s heating and cooling system. In addition, should you also wish to destroy/prevent mold buildup on your AC coil, you may install Swordfish Air in the supply (outbound) duct. See diagram below:
Can I install Swordfish Air on a split unit/heat pump/packaged unit?
Swordfish Air should only be installed inside the ductwork of your heating and cooling system. Split units, heat pumps, and packaged units do not include ductwork. That is the reason one cannot install Swordfish Air on the specified units.
Do I need a professional installer to install the unit?
No. Swordfish Air is designed for DIY installation. Please refer to our installation video on our website.
How close can Swordfish Air be from the filter when installing?
Swordfish Air includes a 36W UVC lamp. UVC deteriorates any non-metal components which includes filters. Please install Swordfish Air at least 3 feet away from the furnace filter.
Does Swordfish Air require maintenance?
Swordfish Air is virtually maintenance free. It’s as easy as changing a light bulb once a year! Swordfish Air’s UVC lamp lasts approximately 10,000 hours or one full year! Over time, UVC lamps lose their ultraviolet light wave intensity, so for optimal performance, we recommend replacing the lamp once a year.
How long does the UVC lamp last?
Swordfish Air’s UVC lamp lasts approximately 10,000 hours or one full year! Swordfish Air has an easy-to-read indicator light that lets you know when it is time to replace the lamp. When the red light turns on, you should replace the UVC lamp.
Does Swordfish Air generate any (Ozone) smell?
Swordfish Air does not generate Ozone. The Swordfish Air UVC lamp operates at 254nm wavelength, which does not generate Ozone.
Does the unit turn on/off with the airflow?
No. Swordfish Air does not turn on/off with airflow.
Does Swordfish Air operate/purify air 24/7?
Yes, Swordfish Air runs 24/7 even if the furnace fan turns off. As long as the lamp is operating, it purifies air; however, if the furnace fan turns off, there will be no air circulation throughout the home and purified air will not travel to different parts of the home. The home should get purified air as soon as the air start to recirculate/furnace fan starts operating. We recommend that the furnace fan is on at all times to continually circulate the purified air.
How long is the lamp? Minimum duct size into which it may be installed?
The lamp extends up to 15.93" (from the power head) inside the ductwork.
What is the radiation generated from the lamp in micro watts per centimeter square?
The lamp radiation = 120 μW/cm2 at 1 m
When should I replace my lamp?
We recommend replacing your Swordfish Air lamp once a year, or when your Replacement Lamp Status Indicator light turns red on the unit.
How do I replace my lamp?
Replacing the UVC lamp in your Swordfish Air is as easy as changing a light bulb.

How do I order replacement lamps?

Can I use Swordfish Air outside of my ductwork?
No. You should only use the Swordfish Air inside of ductwork of your heating and cooling system where UVC radiation cannot escape. UVC radiation is harmful to the human eyes and skin. Direct exposure can cause severe burns (of the skin) and eye injuries (photokeratitis).
Would Swordfish Air deteriorate plastic?
Yes, Swordfish Air will deteriorate plastic over time.
What is my annual energy cost for using Swordfish Air?
The Swordfish Air lamp is a 36W lamp. Using USA average of $0.12/kWh and using the unit 24/7 and 365 days a year would cost you $37.84 every year on your energy bill.
How does UVC technology work?
When viruses, bacteria, pollen and other pathogens are exposed to UVC light, their cells’ DNA and RNA become damaged. Once the cells are damaged, they are unable to replicate, which renders them harmless.
UVC light is measured in nanometer wavelengths. Swordfish Air uses a 254nm UVC light as scientific studies have proven that 254nm is the most effective wavelength to destroy pathogens and disinfect the air.
