    I have an Aerus Air Scrubber model A1013C. I need a replacement ballast. Aerus will not sell direct. I have to go through an HVAC installer. I have contacted three and they will not sell parts. They will sell me a new unit and install it, but there is nothing wrong with my unit except the ballast is shot. These are really simple units comprised of a ballast, UV tube, and a power cord. I have tested it and determined the ballast needs to be replaced. Does anyone know where I can buy the ballast? Part # is 9950102. I've done an extensive search on the Internet without luck.

    Have you tried working backwards? Taking the bulb numbers and finding out the specs of the ballast. Contacting seller of bulb see if they sell or know who might sell a ballast. Also.look on ebay.

    Contact HVAC wholesalers who handle the line or find a smaller HVAC contractor.

    This is a great suggestion. I would have followed your advice. Thankfully, I have found what I needed by going to the wholesale distributor who was happy to sell me the ballast.

    I called on the phone and the guy said "We sell those complete units to HVAC contractors only. I'll have to check and see if we can sell the parts for it and I'll call you back." He didn't call back. So I went to the distributor's wholesale location. This worked. The distributor was happy to order the ballast for me. I should get it today.

    Thanks !!

    Thank you for posting this information. My air scrubber ballast just died tonight and am in need of a replacement. I've reached out to several local HVAC wholesale distributors and hopefully they will sell me one. I might have to try your trick of just showing up at one of their locations.
