Changing Air Filters properly and UV lights can help prevent some of this corrosion from occurring, along with routine cleaning of course. Reme Halo’s which often look similar to UV lights, aren’t able to help in the same methods as the UV lights. UV lights put off UV rays and Reme Halos do not work in the same method and are usually installed past the copper coils, and in the Air Duct system. Both are great ideas to include along with media filters to ensure cleaner indoor air quality.
