Comments about Philips Lighting Philips 15 Watt, 18" TUV T8 Germicidal Fluorescent Bulb:

Buying A/C germicidal bulbs from the A/C repair person is expensive compared to buying an identical bulb through bulbs.com. Bulb arrived quickly and in good condition - very well packed to prevent damage.

A GERMICIDAL BULB AT LAST

By Sarge

From Natchez, MS

About Me Quality Oriented, Value Oriented

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Long Life
  • Runs Cool

Cons

  • None

Best Uses

  • Great for Air Purifiers

Comments about Philips Lighting Philips 15 Watt, 18" TUV T8 Germicidal Fluorescent Bulb:

I own 2 Ionic Air Purifiers that I purchased from a retail Sharper Image store before they closed. In time the germicidal bulbs burned out. I researched and looked high and low to try and find replacemnt bulbs. After exhaustive searches I finally gave up and listened to the naysayers that said these bulbs were no longer available. Then lo and behold I discovered bulbs.com and searched their site and within a few minutes ordered the Phillips germicidal bulbs that fit the Ionic Breeze. The air purifiers were in perfect operating condition but I almost discarded them and would have had to spend hundreds of dollars on replacemnt air purifiers. Thanks to Bulbs.Com I am extremely satsified.

      This is exactly the right bulb for my air filter in a sick room. Finding "bulbs.com" was a stroke of luck, as this bulb was hard to find. [...]It is obviously top quality.

          A:

          Yes, a specific ballast is required. Magnetic LC1420CTP or Lo1322TP with starters or RLQ120TP, HM2SP20TP and Electronic REL2P30G 1L/2L match this Philips germicidal bulb.
