Technical specifications

There are two types of filters used in designing the GermGuardian AC5000E and each one is used to eliminates a certain category of pollutants. There is a HEPA filter that can successfully handle small particles, there is the carbon activated filter that removes odors and irritants, and the pre-filter that can eliminate lint, dust, and larger particles. All three types of filters ensure a Clean Air Delivery Rate of 125+ for smoke, dust, and pollen, which is not very much if you compare it to other models. It can best handle rooms up to 200 sq. ft. in size, considering it’s not a very big device. If you want to use it in a room where you sleep, like a bedroom or a nursery, you must know that it doesn’t make too much noise and the low speed is actually a very quiet one, just perfect for a sleeping environment.

Performance

This air cleaner was designed to clean the air and this is exactly what it does with the help of its 2 types of filters. The true HEPA filter manages to retain 99.97% of small pollutants in the air, such as dust, pollen, and pet dander, all smaller than 0.3 microns. These are some of its features:

  • There is the charcoal pre-filter that reduces common household odors created by pets, smoking, cooking, or cleaning product
  • The pre-filter can capture larger particles like lint, pet hair, and other impurities that would otherwise get stuck in the HEPA filter and minimize its durability
  • The light works with Titanium Dioxide to eliminate germs, bacteria, viruses, and mold spores, in order to minimize the risk of developing asthma, allergies, bronchitis, and other severe respiratory problems

An innovative technology is the UV-C light used to extend the performance on a wider range of pollutants. It lets you choose from 3-speed levels, so you can adjust its operating according to the size of the room and the noise level that provides you comfort.

Practical

There are no additional features that would increase the convenience of this air filter related to its performance or energy efficiency. It doesn’t come with a programmable timer or an auto mode that would minimize the operating time and the energy consumption, which would make it even more functional.

The fact that you need to replace its filter every 6 to 8 months can be considered a hassle, if you think about other models that come with a permanent filter. To help you remember when you should replace the filter or the UV-C bulb. This way, you will manage to increase the durability of your air purifier and the overall yield in retaining large amounts of pollutants.
