The GermGuardian AC5250PT is one of the best air purifiers on the market for anyone suffering from mild-to-severe allergies. Thanks to its TrueHEPA filter, the GermGuardian 3-in-1 Air Cleaning System is able to capture 99.97% of all of the allergens floating around in your home, including pollen, pet dander, and dust mites. The unit’s secondary PetPure filter was specially engineered out of an antimicrobial material which inhibits the growth of mold, mildew, and odor-causing bacteria.
GermGuardian AC5250PT Features
The GermGuardian AC5250PT uses a patented 3-in-1 air cleaning system comprising of a PetPure filter, a TrueHEPA filter, and UV-C light to deliver the cleanest, purest air possible from such a compact unit.
- PetPure Filter – The AC5250PT’s PetPure filter helps to catch large contaminants like pet hair and lint, and also comes with a layer of activated charcoal to catch odors from pets, mold, and smoke. It’s also made out of an antimicrobial material which inhibits the growth of mold and bacteria – common sources of household odors.
- TrueHEPA Filter – The GermGuardian’s TrueHEPA filter is capable of catching as much as 99.97% of all allergens and pollutants in your home’s age. This is the same type of filter technology that’s used in hospitals, laboratories, and on airplanes. The TrueHEPA filter can capture contaminants as small as 0.3 microns.
- UV-C Light – At the final stage of filtration, the AC5250PT activates its UV-C light feature whenever its sensor comes in contact with titanium dioxide. In addition to cleansing harmful gases, the UV-C light also kills bacteria, viruses, and mold spores.
Purifies rooms up to 193 square feet in size, making it great for bedrooms and offices.
- Space-saving vertical design makes it easy to keep the GermGuardian AC5250PT in a discreet, out-of-the-way location, no matter how small the room is.
- A convenient recessed handle makes it easy to move the GermGuardian 3-in-1 Air Cleaning System from room-to-room of your home as needed.
- One of the few mid-range air purifiers which comes with five separate fan settings for maximum control over noise and purification.
- Protected by GermGuardian’s 5-year limited warranty.
- Digital display provides UV-C control, a filter change indicator, and an up to 8-hour timer.
Replacing the filter in the GermGuardian AC5250PT is easy: simply remove the back filter cover, pop out the used filter, and install the new one. Spend 30 seconds replacing the filter rather than 30 minutes-plus like with other purifiers.
