    • True HEPA Filter: captures 99.9% of airborne particles including dust mites, debris, mold spores, pollen and pet dander as small as 0.3 microns.
    • Photocatalyst + Charcoal Filter: Titanium Dioxide coats the charcoal filter and is activated by the UV light to neutralize gases and odors and prevents the growth of bacteria, germs and mold spores
    • UV-C Germicidal Lamp: acts as the light source for the PCO filter and kills 99.9% of viruses, bacteria and mold spores
  • 3 Fan Speeds: manual knob can be set to low, medium or high
  • Quiet: air circulates quietly on all three speeds
  • Indicator Lights: shows when power is on and when UV lamp is on
  • Area Coverage: cleans the air in a room up to 185 sq. ft.(approx. 13' x 14' room) with 4.5 air changes/hr on speed 3
  • Easy to Move: it is light weight weighing only 10.5 lbs and has a built-in carry handle on the back

How it Works:
UV-C light technology is proven to help eliminate airborne germs. This technology has been used for over 100 years to kill up to 99.9% of germs on surfaces, in the air and water. UV-C light is highly effective at penetrating viruses and bacteria that can cause staph, pneumonia, tuberculosis, bronchitis and meningitis. The light alters the genetic structure of germs and they die.

Care of:
Use a clean, dry, soft cloth to wipe the external surface of the unit once a month.

Filter Maintenance:
Pre-filter: remove from combination filter and clean with the brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner
Combination HEPA Filter: replace every 6-12 months depending on use. When filter turns grey or black it should be replaced with a new one
UV-C bulb: should be replaced every 10-12 months depending on use (replacement bulb is only sold directly from manufacturer)

 

Reports by Experts - GermGuardian® AC5000 UVC and HEPA Air Purifier

Expert Review:    Courtesy of AllergyBuyersClub.com

Pluses:

  • Compact design requires very little floor space
  • Simple and easy to use – no frills, no confusion
  • Easy and affordable filter maintenance
  • Lightweight with carry handle
  • Good filtration of particles
  • Kills germs, viruses and bacteria
  • CADR rated for efficiency

Minuses:

  • Covers only a single room (186 sq ft – approx. 13'x14' room)
  • UV bulb change requires a screwdriver

Summary:

This is a good multi-purpose, compact air purifier for a single room approximately 186 sq. ft. During our testing, it significantly reduced the particles in the air and its fan is quiet enough on low to use in a bedroom while sleeping. It is very simple to use with a manual knob fan control and push button UV light option. This would be a great solution for allergy sufferers looking for an affordable air cleaner that is easy to maintain. No frills, bells or whistles, just a good all around air purifier to help keep your breathing air clean, healthy and free of airborne germs, viruses and bacteria.
