Questions & Answers

I'm not sure if it's on or off, but is the UV on with the button The UV is supposed to make something light up, but why?

The same was said by others. In an enclosed space, the UV light is "On". If the room is somewhat light, one could see just a hint of it through the middle of the grill, but UV light is harmful to eyes so avoid staring at it for too The following note is to be taken into consideration Although the UV button is turned on, you can only read UV rays if the fan is running in run mode (low, medium, high). If the fan is off, the UV is off as well.

Can you tell me what the air movement is in terms of cfm, and what the range is. ?

am unaware of the CFM rating of this Unit, but I bought two others that were supposedly of better quality -- and paid way too much for them both (over $400 each) -- but this GermGuardian unit performed better than the other two combined. You've got a great site! As soon as I turn on one, it releases the room's odors. As soon as the unit is off, it is absorbing the room's scent. GermGuardian kills the smells, but not the germs. You can easily clean the filter and it is In her nursing home room where she must share a bed with another resident, I am suffering from nausea and is unable to concentrate on getting rid of the smells The cancer victim suffered from a weakened immune system. Around 12' x 14' seems to be the maximum size that this unit can handle. Another one would be a great buy, and I recommend it to everyone.

What is the noise level like after a month or two of using the system?

blew it out every three to four weeks and noticed it was very loud after about 5 months of years. I followed the directions exactly to clean the filter. In my sixth to seventh month, I noticed I could not tell the difference between low, medium, or high and I found it difficult to sleep. Putting in a new filter resulted in a much quieter system after I realized I needed to change the filter. I therefore determine that if your filter is dirty, the noise is going to be loud and she can also tell that it's dirty by the fact that it's heavy, or heavier than a new filter. That might be helpful to other people. Especially for a single room measuring 12' x 15', I like

How often do you need to replace the ?

Hepa filters are offered at some retailers It is made up of ultraviolet It is possible to replace all of them. Depending on how much air is contaminated and how frequently you use the heater, it is recommended that you replace the pre charcoal filter and hepa filter every four to six months. Additionally, vacuuming the filter every month is recommended to remove any large particles that may be lodged inside and prolong its life. When I checked amazon for replacements, I was unable to find any online, but I was able to purchase replacements straight from the manufacturer.

I'm in love with this room air purifier
5/5

It was delivered a little more than a month ago on June 24, 2017. that has severe allergies to dust (lucky me? The purifier I bought was placed in a medium sized room right next to his kennel, and his allergies have improved since then. After only one month, I was able to take before and after photos of my dogs' hives and their air filters. I am blown away by this product.

What a horrible thing to happen! There was no way a) to ask me to write this review or b) for anybody to convince me that a HEPA filter would reduce household indoor allergen responses so dramatically that I faced a living hell in several rooms of a cat-free home House filled with people! Getting rid of the cats is now out of the question
5/5

Thus, cats can be enjoyed and breathing easy is possible I don't mean to make a pun! My health has been compromised by a wide range of issues, as has been reported by others who have reviewed it An allergic reaction that could be life-threatening. Even if they don't send you to the hospital, it doesn't mean you have no desire to end the suffering. It seemed like the best course of action to use this filter. My bewilderment was due to the fact that allergies cause so much discomfort. I never realized the reason for sneezing and watery eyes as well as constant mucus production and a runny nose could be allergies. In spite of my allergic reaction, I refused to believe it! My hunch about this filter turned out to be wrong, and I'm happy to say Possibly as well it was mildew or mold coming from the A/C or carpet in the vicinity, or possibly it was just the cats (which I knew about). In some ways, an electronic box is a teacher, but that's a lesson. It is important to learn this simple The air you breathe is vital to your health! This unit enables you to breathe easier! A MONTH has passed without me sneezing thanks to the effectiveness of this device. Using my own experience, I was able to tell that it had made a In the past After rubbing the faucet clean with my sneeze, I sneezed again. The face has been wiped/closed/narrowed - Mild itch sensations were experienced somewhat more frequently (not much, but more than what is seen now, actually. ) Now It is almost impossible for me to sneeze My confession is that I have already done it once since getting the virus. It is not exaggeration on my part. Now that it's been three months, I'm getting tired of waiting. Despite the fact that I haven't yet changed the filter, I will nevertheless do so. As far as I know, I do not As far as I know, I am not a It is not my head that emits gunk. Who are you, and what are you doing? Friends, let me tell you about what a pleasure it is to breathe good air. It's a good thing you have this filter because you breathe constantly. When I was a kid, I used to think that Constant breathing is part of who you are. I suggest you put the phone down. It may not be easy to put down your life so you might want to takeaway the statement that if you are uncomfortable by air impurities, the rest doesn't matter so much and this needs to be addressed first. In retrospect, I wish I had gotten one earlier. My moderate-adhesion to the medication would have been better understood if I understood its cause I still insist There is constant suffering at various locations. In other words, this unit didn't save my life it just made it more enjoyable to live! It is a way to invest in oneself. In addition to primary deactivators, UV light serves as an excellent secondary filter. My rating would be 8 or 10 stars because it kills discomfort so people can live!.

This is a purchase you will not Please note that I turned it on immediately after it arrived because I had just received it
5/5

Despite the "noise," I don't care about it My brain actually slept when I listened to it. Whether it was just in my head or not, I got results immediately. It felt like the air felt a thousand times better once the smell dissipated. When I went to work, I left it on 3 while I took a nap. As soon as you step out of the door, you can tell the air is different. So far, it has only run for six hours. Due to the fact that I have never owned an air purifier, I naturally read many reviews that compared different air Even though the price was a concern, I figured it would be worth it if it makes me feel better in the long run. Don't hesitate to buy it, you won't be sorry! As of now, I have it on a shelf, but I will move it out of sight later. As well, it doesn't look bad at all. I really like the chrome silver bar, but it doesn't fit my room's theme. I would totally buy this in black if it came in black!.

A gold mine burned up less than a year later
3/5

It will never be the same Since I installed this, I have noticed an improvement in my bedroom's odor and feel. During the day and at night I keep it running. There are a few more I need to buy. In the room, I have another type of air cleaner, but it did not do a good The June 2017 update is as follows It has been about a year since I began using this air purifier in my bedroom. In the beginning, blue light lasted for only a month before it disappeared. A new light I purchased was not functioning, had flimsy wiring, and was difficult and time consuming As soon as I smelled smoke, I became frightened. I thank God I was home at the time, or who knows my house might have caught fire. It must be said that I have had numerous other air purifiers for less money that have lasted over a decade with constant use. I purchased this air purifier about a month ago and it lasted for about a month and cost about twice as much as the other two. It worked well for about a month with the UV light but then it became The next one I buy will not be like this. I will go back to the cheaper and better performing air purifiers I already have at home. It was unfortunate that I recently bought the larger version of GermGuardian hopefully it won't also burn up. It would be a good idea for me to turn it off when I leave my Fire is not something I want to happen to my furry friends.
