WHY UV-C Technology?
UV-C light technology is proven to kill common germs on surfaces, in the air and in water. It is highly effective at penetrating thin-walled viruses and bacteria known to cause: staph, pneumonia, tuberculosis, bronchitis and meningitis. The light alters the genetic structure of the germs and they die.

FAQs

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to replace my filter?
Yes. It is recommended that you change the Combination Filter every 6 to 8 months depending on use.

How long is the warranty?
The warranty is a 5-year Limited Warranty. For more detailed warranty information please refer to the warranty section of your instruction manual.

What is CADR?
CADR stands for “Clean Air Delivery Rate” which indicates the volume of filtered air delivered by an air purifier. CADR ratings show the effectiveness of how efficient the air purifier is at capturing fine particles from things like tobacco smoke and plant pollens from the room.

How do I know when I should replace the filter?
It is recommended that you replace the Combination Filter every 6 months — depending on use — to maintain an optimal level of air purification. When the filter turns from white to dark grey or black, it should be replaced with a new one. If the filter is still white, it does not need to be replaced.

What is UV-C light?
UV-C is part of the ultra-violet light spectrum that is filtered out by the earth’s atmosphere. The “C” stands for the particular frequency of UV light that kills germs.

Why is UV-C light so effective?
UV-C light is highly effective at penetrating thin-walled germs like viruses and bacteria. The light alters the genetic structure of the germ, and they die.

A nice but noisy air cleanerReview by Dave S
Rating
The Germguardian AC5000E for the last month has been doing a great job of keeping our bedroom air cleaner and smelling better. We keep the speed on low because on medium or high the noise is too much for us to sleep. With the UV light selected it has the appearance of an alien being in the room with us. The only reason It does not rate 5 stars is because of the noise. (Posted on 5/29/2014)

It's an amazing filter and has gotten a lot of the dust and allergens out of my 13x13 room. It's not much of a fan but this thing is rugged. I've tipped it over about 5 times and keep it on almost 24/7 and it's still running like new. (Posted on 5/29/2014)
Germguardian on GuardReview by Nancy Miller Tucker
Rating
I purchased this air cleaning system with hopes that it would help with my allergies. I have animals, live across the street from an excavating company that dust should be their motto. I have dark circles worse than a raccoon. I thought I would wait and see what it could do. To my amazement I dust less, sneeze less, the dark circles are barely there now! The product does the job. The only thing I do not like is that is does not shut off on it's own. I may invest in another one that has all the bells and whistles now that I know I am being "Guarded" at all times.

Marching to the doctors office since June 2012Review by Asthmatic - Allergy Severe
Rating
My allergies from Molds, housemites, pollens, pollutants have made me sick since June 2012. Running out of options I turned to Germguardian after reading several product reviews from Costco, Walmart.com and Amazon.com. I received my order within 3 days.

Improvements have been noticeable since using the product especially with air quality in my living room. I used it in my room last night to see the difference if any. My severe allergies would keep me awake at night coughing, sneezing, wheezing, stuffing nose, chest congestion. I wake up tired and short of breath reaching out for my Ventolin inhaler. I notice the changes in air quality in my room last night (cleaner feel) I woke up this morning feeling fresh (having no symptoms mentioned above)

The plastic smell that a customer mentioned from a previous review only occurred for a day when I first use the product. It went away soon after that.

I highly recommend this product for people with chronic allergies / asthmatic conditions. (Posted on 5/29/2014)
Seems to do a good jobReview by Mark Lowry
Rating
I bought this unit because of it's price point and the positive reviews. It arrived quickly and no assembly required. It seems to actually help with pet odors and cooking odors in the home. I won't give it a five star rating because it is not all that quiet. It makes a pretty loud humming on high (not enough to turn it off though), a bit of a humming on med. and is virtually silent on low.
I will recommend this product. (Posted on 5/29/2014)

This machine really cleans the air. I can tell a big difference since adding two of these to my house. One of my rooms has a mold issue and while waiting on remediation I have a towel shoved under the door and one of these running 24x7 with the bulb on to help kill any spores in the air and it seems to help that room smell less musty/moldy.

Does What It's Supposed ToReview by S. Oakley
Rating
I originally had the 22" version of this product. Unfortunately the UV light switch failed so I had to return it. I decided to go for the 28" and so far its been a good decision. I used the 22" and now the 28" in a small bedroom, with the door sometimes closed and the difference between the two is basically that the 28" cleans the air sooner (duh).

Now, with almost any product, there's at least one caveat. Here's this one's: you may very well notice a plastic smell when you first start using it. After two of these doing this, I'm thinking its normal. The remedy: put it out in a large room and just let it run. Or even outside if its not too hot. The smell will be gone in 24-48 hours. After experimentation (nothing else to do), I'm pretty sure its the heat from the UV bulb on the surrounding plastic......

Anyway, I'd go for the 28" no matter the room size. (Posted on 5/29/2014)

Within three hours of turning on the unit, my two weeks of misery with allergies and sinus discomfort cleared up. I would never have believed it, but out of desperation and suffering, I purchased this unit based on reviews. I am a new person!! No more sinus issues and discomfort. Love product. One small complaint, the unit is a little loud on the high setting. (Posted on 5/29/2014)

Amazing air cleaning systemReview by H. Tharp
Rating
This is one purchase I am so glad I made! This is powerhouse of a machine and I love that you can clean one of the filters simply using a vac. A member of my family suffers with COPD and we needed very clean air in our home. We decided to go with this air cleaning system as it is a 3 in 1 system with True HEPA! The UV-C is amazing and kills germs just as hospitals use. We have had no colds or allergies since we purchased this machine. We leave it on 24/7. I love the light on it as well as it makes for a great night light as well. If you are considering a quality air cleaner...look no further as this is the one. It is very quite as well even on the highest setting. The air in our home is wonderful and people even comment when they come to visit. If you are cooking the odors are quickly filtered and the air stays very fresh in your home. I cannot say enough great things about this cleaner. We love ours and have friends that have also purchased this exact model. Excellent product! (Posted on 5/29/2014)

Successfully treating allergies and more in our house!Review by horsefun
Rating
I have had this unit plus a small plug-in unit of the same brand for 3 months now. I purchased these for a couple of reasons: #1) to sanitize the air for my weaker immune system and #2) my daughter wakes up (woke up) every morning just completely stuffed up. Allergies are a real problem for her. I cannot tell you the difference in my daughter. The small unit is in the room she sleeps in and the standing unit is in the main room of the house. She no longer wakes up stuffy. She is now the one running to turn it on all the time because it makes her feel so much better. On top of that, her allergies are usually bad enough to cause bad breath from her sinuses. No more bad breath! As for me, I am always the one who catches illnesses and gets them worse than anyone in the family. My husband recently had a bad cold and I only got a scratchy throat!! That is a HUGE improvement for me! I highly recommend the Germ Guardian products. They are still running just as they were when I purchased them. The plug-in unit has been running since the minute we got it. We usually only leave the stand-up unit on during the day. I would buy them again in a heartbeat. (Posted on 5/29/2014)

We love this machine. It has been a miracle for us. Both myself and my son have bad allergies and are very sensitive to mold. We had to live in an apartment for 5 months that had lots of mildew/mold around the windows. We also had a large dog at the time who shed like crazy. This system was a life saver, we stayed healthy and strong and enjoyed our clean air. (Posted on 5/29/2014)
Very effectiveReview by Marie hanusek

We absolutely love the look of this air purifier. We live in an apartment and it was really difficult to get rid of the "food smell" from anything we cooked. This has really made a HUGE difference in air circulation and quality. My only complaint would be the noise level when it is on the highest setting. There are three settings total, so it is easily adjustable. I would highly recommend this product! (Posted on 5/29/2014)

Amazing!!Review by Ginger Williams

We read the reviews on Amazon & decided to give this a try. We live in a very open concept house with tons of windows. We hated to have company at certain times of the day because our air was so filled with dust particles. We also have 2 long haired cats. I seriously cannot believe how well this machine works! The air is no longer cluttered - you can really tell in the sunlight. It does exactly what's advertised to do - clean the air! The plastic smell did last about 2 weeks. I was encouraged by the company to run it on high with the light on for 48 hours. This did the trick. I was using the light sporadically & running it mostly on medium. The smell is now gone. The dust is gone. Love this!! (Posted on 5/29/2014)

I have been using this purifier for about 6 weeks and can really feel a difference in the air quality around my desk at work. I have also been able to keep from catching anyone else's colds.

Call me crazy, but I've had this air purification system for ONE day and can already tell a difference!! I'm no longer feeling short of breath, can take that big gulp of air, seem to have just a totally different quality of air!! I never knew how important air filtration was until I started reading about allergies. This is totally worth spending money on if you are simply health conscious or if you have needs for cleaning the air. Best purchase I've made in a long time for my quality of life.

Simply FantasticReview by Tananda M. Kalitan

For the price this is the best air filter I've ever used. The filter itself is easy to clean, simply wash it in the sink and dry it thoroughly and pop it back in (just the black part, the rest of it shouldn't get wet). I love it and have it running all the time, my son has breathing issues and I think this has helped him a lot. It moves air really well, but when it's on it's highest setting it is a little loud. Worth every penny though! (Posted on 5/29/2014)

Bought one of these a month or so ago locally, and have been so happy with it that I'm here on Amazon buying another one for the second floor. It is extremely effective in purifying the air of dust and odors. It has made a huge difference in my allergies. Looking forward to having one cranking on each floor. The filters are rather expensive, but all HEPAs are. (Posted on 5/29/2014)

I have 4 cats and put this near their litter box. I have the Germ Guardian tower raised up off the floor for better circulation. Within 10 minutes of turning it on the air quality was noticeably fresher! I'm going to order one or two more for other areas of the house. Prior to buying this tower model, I have been using the cool looking stainless steel table model of Germ Guardian air sanitizers for years, I have 5 of those throughout the house and basement. I haven't had a cold since I first discovered Germ Guardians, 4 years ago! I have given 3 of them as gifts. I absolutely LOVE them!! My house smells fresh and clean, even with 4 indoor cats. I highly recommend the tower model and the table model. This tower model filters and cleans the air, as well as sanitizing it. The other model I mention here, only sanitizes the air, killing germs and mold spores. (Posted on 5/29/2014)
