The Bryant electronic air cleaner is designed as a dust collector. Without the addition of ultraviolet lights and carbon element, the Bryant electronic air cleaner is not effective to control Danger Level 2 or Danger Level 3 contaminants.
Surprisingly, the Bryant electronic air cleaner is not described as a high efficiency air cleaner. The highest efficiency reported in their material is 68% and no particle size is associated with that figure. At this rate, 32% of the particles are passing right through and then sticking to whatever has an opposite charge, usually curtains, TV screen, furniture, etc.
According to the owners manual, the Bryant electronic air cleaner does produce ozone and, as with all electrostatic precipitators, ozone production increases as the cells load with contaminants. Read here about the EPA and ozone.
The cost for the Bryant electronic air cleaner plus the cost of a licensed contractor to modify your duct work to have it installed, can easily exceed the cost of purchasing the Electro Breeze Duct Mount UV kit.

assembly, monitor and five replacement pads. Change your first pad
after one month of use, then change out every 2-4 months, thereafter.
