Guardian Technologies® Expands germguardian® Air Purifier Line-Up Just in Time for Spring Allergy Season
-New Models Equipped with HEPA Filtration and UV-C Light Technology to Kill Airborne Germs and Bacteria-
Mentor, Ohio (May 4, 2011) – While this time of year typically means an end to snow for many of us, it is also the start of another seasonal foe: spring allergies. April showers may help new plants and flowers to blossom, but this rain also brings more moss and mold growth, triggering allergy symptoms for the nearly 40 million Americans who suffer from seasonal allergies.
However, thanks to new germguardian® brand air purifiers from Guardian Technologies, help, like spring, is here.
According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI), allergy symptoms are the result of a cumulative effect of multiple allergens and non-allergic triggers, so it is best to minimize exposure to other known allergens at this time. Rather than suffer through the season in misery with sneezing, wheezing and more, seasonal allergy sufferers can take small steps to improve their indoor air quality, such as using an air purifier with HEPA filtration. To help create a healthier home environment, the germguardian family of air purifiers has expanded with new models that offer multiple levels of filtration – including HEPA – and feature UV-C light technology, which kills airborne germs and bacteria.
The new tower  AC4825 3-in-1 Air Cleaning System is a complete air cleaning system that features a sleek, compact design and multiple levels of cleaning to capture allergens, kill airborne germs and bacteria, and fight mold and odors. First, a pre-filter and a charcoal filter combine to capture large particles like dust and lint, as well as destroy household odors. Then, a True HEPA filter captures 99.97 percent of airborne particles, as small as .3 microns in size, such as dust mites, debris, mold spores, plant pollens and pet dander. Finally, the power of UV- C light works to help kill airborne germs and bacteria, while Titanium Dioxide is activated by the UV-C light to decompose odor molecules caused by smoking, cooking and pets.
UV-C technology has been used for more than 100 years in various applications to kill germs on surfaces, in the air and in the water. Many hospitals use UV-C to sanitize and it has been proven to kill up to 99.9 percent of germs. Today, thanks to emerging technology, the power of UV-C has been harnessed and is now available for personal use in an array of applications, including a number of home sanitization products from germguardian.
The  AC4825 3-in-1 Air Cleaning System is perfect for allergy sufferers. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics Allergy & Immunology, doctors recommend HEPA air filtration systems to reduce exposure to indoor asthma triggers. The machine operates quietly and processes the air at approximately 155 square feet per hour. Other features include a CADR 100+ rating and a three-year limited warranty. The AC4825 is now available and retails for under $129.
Guardian Technologies is also introducing a new digital LCD display model, the AC48508, which is a complete air cleaning systems that offers multi-stage True HEPA filtration and odor reduction, as well as UV-C light technology to kill common germs and bacteria. The convenient digital LCD display feature allows for easy setting and timing of the power, fan and UV-C control. The  AC4850 retails under $179.
The final addition to the product mix is a table top air cleaning system perfect for the home or office: the AC4010.Small but powerful, its convenient compact size processes the air in a 200- square-foot room every hour.
