    ** Air intake and output may vary on models and may not be consistent with image shown. This does not change the efficacy of the product.

  • What is UV-C?
    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 so effective at destroying germs?
    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.

    Is this new technology?
    No. UV-C has been used to kill germs for almost 100 years. The first usage was in France in 1909 to disinfect their water system. This technology is still used today in hospitals, commercial buildings and custom homes to kill germs.

    How big is the product?
    The UV-C Air Sanitizer is 17-inches tall and weighs less than five pounds.

    Is the product expensive to operate?
    No. The UV-C bulb uses less energy than a standard light bulb.

    How long will the bulb last?
    The UV-C bulb will last between 5,000 and 6,000 hours, approximately 6–8 months of use.

    Will I need to replace the bulb?
    Yes, after 6,000 hours the bulb will loose approximately 15% of its efficiency. To maintain optimum performance it is recommended to change the bulb.

    How do I know when I need to change my bulb?
    The bulb will flicker or change colors. That is an indication that the bulb is failing and needs to be replaced.

    Why is the UV-C Air Sanitizer made with steel and aluminum?
    Steel is a high-quality material that does not deteriorate when exposed to UV-C light for long periods of time. The aluminum used for the UV-C chamber is highly reflective to UV-C light, which significantly increases the effectiveness of the UV-C Air Sanitizer.

    Why doesn't the UV-C Air Sanitizer emit ozone?
    The type of UV-C bulb used in the UV-C Air Sanitizer is a special one that does not emit ozone out of the product.

    How long is the warranty?
    The UV-C Air Sanitizer has a 5-year limited product warranty. See instructional manual for further warranty information.

    Does the product require regular cleaning or maintenance?
    The only recommended maintenance is to replace the UV-C bulb and filter annually.

    Where should I use the product?
    The UV-C Air Sanitizer can be used at home, in an office environment, hotel rooms, doctor’s office, or anywhere indoors where there is a desire or need to sanitize the air. The UV-C Air Sanitizer is not designed for outdoor use.

    Is the product safe around children or pets?
    Yes. The UV-C Air Sanitizer is as safe as any other device that uses 120V of electricity. While all children and pets are advised not to play with the unit or its electrical cord, there are no additional safety risks. The UV-C Air Sanitizer is cool to the touch and safe around children and pets.

    If I buy the UV-C Air Sanitizer, will I still get sick?
    The purchase of a UV-C Air Sanitizer does not prevent illness. GermGuardian® is designed to destroy over 99% of airborne bacteria.

The best

I have two and it is one of the best units that I have ever used.

By: Landcrowe

Not for bedroom

Bought 2....1st light went out within a month. They replaced it for free. They are bulky for an end table.. Loud on high, better on low. Light is to bright for sleeping. I have to turn it off at night. Bulb actual life is unknown at this time. Second ones bulb went out around 5 months. That's the one that is turned off at night. The air does seem cleaner.

By: Pauline


I purchased this for our front counter and everyone snickered at the "health freak" and her new toy. But after having it run for a year and not a single employee out of 20+ getting sick last season no one's laughing now.
Everyone agrees that IT WORKS!!

Slick looking and not too big but not little

It comes on, it is quiet, and it isn't too big. It has a nice look, if not a little sci-fi. Do these things really work? No idea. But we hope they do.

By: Tsiberian

Went in a skeptic came out a believer

I bought a total of 4 units. 2 of them for work and 2 for home. I have uncommon form a Asthma. So having clean air around me is extremely critical. After using it for a 1-1/2 weeks continuously i found that they cut my problems down about 95 percent. Allowing me a stronger breath as well. the fan noise does not bother me. its minor in comparison to the 5 honeywell running as well. there is only on issue i had. i literally had to have them removed from the area for about 4 days to 'vent'. what ever comes out of them smell bad and the out-gasing bothered my breathing something terrible. Once that was out-gased then they run excellent. I would purchase more of them if needed.

1: Works extremely well.
2: Looks cool.
3: helps with my Asthma alot.

1: the smell and out-gasing when first purchased was unbearable.

CONCLUSION: would recommend this product and purchase another one if needed.

Additional comment (one month later): I still love the machine. I ended up purchasing 4 units. 2 for work and 2 for home. it has help me greatly with my Asthma. there is one grip with it and because i have getting great results this will not detour me from continue use. I had to replace all for bulbs. I personally think they should find another supplier. Apparently this one that makes those bulbs have horrible quality control.

I like it

I have owned this product for 3 years and love it. I thought about writing a review after I had to buy a replacement bulb about 18 months in. I have this product in my bedroom and it seems to work well. I have 3 children and a wife who teaches and always seems to bring something home but I seem to remain ok. My only complain is like others the fan construction seems poor when you open the unit up to clean the filter. It is rather noisy and for $100 plus I expect a better quality fan.

Christmas gift, wife has one at work and likes it so I got one for her bedroom to help with her allergies.

By: J. R. McWilliams

Working without problems

The canister has a fan speed control and at low speeds, the fan is pretty quiet. I have the portable Germ Guardian also, and the portable's fan is fairly noisy and is one speed. After 2 months, both are on without any issues. Since i really do not know how well they are sanitizing the air, i am giving both 4 Stars. I would like to see lab reports on how effective they really are. Nevertheless, i have them both on most of the time. Both seem to be well made. The stainless steel one is sturdy and nice looking.

less sickness

we bought one of these a while back and liked how it worked. we keep it in our family room where we spend most of our time. my son used to get croup a lot and "knock on wood" he hasn't since. we bought another one for the bedroom since winter is coming. the only negative is that it's a little noisy but with two boys, they tend to drown it out. plus, we all sleep best with "white noise". i would definitely recommend this product.

Made my "musty" room smell better

After just a day or so, my room smelled better than it did. And almost a week later, I am still happy with it.

I had a leak in the closet that I happened to have repaired the same day the unit came. Im wondering if Mold from that leak was in the air ?

Also, it seems my nose is less stuffy in the morning when I wake up. Dust mites ? Mold ? My imagination ?

Placebo effect ? Its possible I guess but I can take mine back locally for 100% of my money back and Im planning on keeping it. (Samsclub)
Believe me, I would NOT keep it if I didn't think it was helping.

Unlike some other posters, Its not noisy at all to me and the light isn't TOO bright than one cant sleep with it on.

Now, I am wondering if I should "cut out" the spot in the ceiling where the leak was ? Im guessing about 12x12 inches or so.

Anyone with suggestions, please leave a comment.

Have had one for a couple years, works great!

I have had one germ guardian at home for two years and no one in my family has been sick. This year, I decided to buy another one for my son's classroom and the teacher is thrilled to have it. No one has been sick in her classroom since it has been there. Hey if this machine can prevent germs in a classroom and prevent me from taking time off of work to care for my sick child, it is more than worth it. Don't understand how it works, but it does and with all the airborne illnesses, I would recommend it to everyone, and I have.

By: Robert G Johnson

Great machine, and Technology

I use the Germ Guardian EV-9-102-C air sanitizer in conjunction with a Honeywell Long-Life Pure HEPA QuietCare Air Purifier 17000.
Between the two they have alleviated a chronic bronchial condition. I have endured this condition for over 65 years, despite the efforts of numerous doctors and "miracle drugs" that only offered partial and temporary relief. The combination of these units offered immediate (with 24 hours) relief. However, people with similar breathing problems should be aware that there is a big difference between ultraviolet air treatment and ionized air treatment. The use of ionized air can actually aggravate bronchial and lung conditions while ultraviolet light does not have an adverse effect.

I love this product. My kids ALWAYS get ear infections in Sept. Oct. I bought this to try and combat against ear infections. To my chagrin, it works. No ear problems. I feel like my house is germ free

Perfectly Effective Germ Killer

Before I start my review, I will tell you a bit about my situation and need for the Germ Guardian. I was living in the Marshall Islands, a third world tropical paradise, and found myself very prone to infections and getting sick in general. The reason being that the locals, which I interacted with regularly were full of germs and bacteria that their bodies could handle, but when those passed on to me through casual contact would knock me out. One of the families I was closest with all had a history of TB. I spent weeks with different family members in the TB isolation wing of the local hospital. While there, I noticed a large noisy machine in the corner of the room. It was a air sanitizer, similar to the germ guardian, but on a larger more industrial scale.

So I researched and bought one of these and put it in my apartment. I did not get any sort of infection or sickness for the two years I was living there. Time came for me to move and I was not going to lug this thing home, so I sold it. In the time between I sold it and the time I left the island, about two weeks, I got an infection.

When I returned to my parents house, I purchased two of these as well as a few Germ Guardian GG-1000 UV-C Air Sanitizer. I placed the larger units in common areas and the wall plug units in bedrooms. There is a total of five of us in the house. This past winter, 2010-2011, was the first winter that no one in my household was sick. This is a rare occurrence, my mother and brother are usually very susceptible to colds/flu and are afraid of needles, so no flu shots.

Do these actually work? In my experiences, yes. I believe the chances that the lack of sickness is all a coincidences is astronomical. I suggest these to everyone I know and will own them for the rest of my life.

Because all of the good its done for me and my family, I am accepting of its faults. Yes, the fan is loud. In the family room I keep it in the corner behind the TV to hide the sound. In my bedroom, I have gotten used to the sound quite easily. Its like white noise in the background.

The bulb that come with it suck. The company knows its a problem and sends out new ones at no charger. The new bulb lasts about a year. Paying $30 for a new bulb a year or even every six months is not that big an issue considering the benefits. Also you can pick up generic bulbs on eBay for $10. I have purchased them and they work fine, it not better.

Even though, it has these issues I still give it 5 stars because as I said the benefits outweigh the few issues.

Stylish and effective

This is the first product that I bought as far as uv air sanitizer but I love this one.it's so nice,stylish, and after 1hour you can tell the difference -the air is cleaner and it's easier for you to breathe.my husband has asthma and he can tell the difference too. It kills the viruses too so it's nice if somebody at the house is sick , you can use it to sanitize your house.I do recommend this product mostly if you have dogs or kids in the house.

The item arrived very quickly and it is just plug it in and it is working. Seems to have helped a great deal in my house.

By: Terry R. Williams

Mold killer

Was very happy when this unit arrived by UPS. Have a problem in my home with a shower Pan that leaked and caused mold. It took awhile for the contractor to start the job so I had this in my bedroom when I was sleeping at night. Works great and my Allergy doctor was interested in it also when I showed it to him. When I take my motor home out it will be on board.

By: Sue

Perfect for my needs

I wanted to get this item for my baby's bedroom to clean the air, but it also serves as a great 'white noise' for his bedroom. Also, the blue light works great as a night light.

Works better than my customary HEPA air cleaner

As a recent mobile home purchaser in an extremely humid area with 75%-100% humidity most of the time, this UV-C light has helped my night time breathing since I am allergic to mold and mildew my mobile home tested positive for. While I have added a dehumidifier, it isn't powerful enough to clean the 1400 + square feet, so this device assures better air quality thanks to it being right next to the bed. I have long used an air cleaner, but unfortunately the filters get dirty and damp within less than a week, so i am going to have to stop using it because the filters cost too much to keep replacing them.

Finally can breathe

Purchased this product because the public school I was working in is full of mold which is my #1 allergy. Got tired of constantly being ill. Principal statement "So glad I don't have to deal with allergies. And besides it's not black mold" After 2 weeks of the machine being constantly on, my aide and other teachers noticed how clean my room "smelled" and how they could breathe easier. Wish I had known about this product when I first started public schools years ago, I could have missed out of missing a lot of work and getting written up. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who is working in public schools or really old buildings because it costs too much to "really" clean up and get rid of the mold (not in the school budget).
