Key Features of the GermGuardian AC4825
How does the GermGuardian AC4825 air purifier work?
First, this device isn’t called a 3-in-1 cleaning system for nothing. It consists of a series of filters that air needs to pass through, the first being a pre-filter and charcoal filter combination, then a HEPA filter, and then a UV-C light.
The first set of filters are designed to capture large particles such as dust and lint. The HEPA filter targets dust mites, mold spores, plant pollens, and animal dander. The UV-C light eliminates viruses and bacteria. As advertised, this device, through its UV-C technology, can eradicate harmful microorganisms such as rhinovirus, E. coli, and streptococcus.
What is the GermGuardian AC4825 used for?
Aside from protecting your family especially young children against the harmful effects of bacteria, pollutants, and allergens, it can also help in odor reduction (e.g., from pets, cooking, smoke, garbage, and even new paint).
Does it remove formaldehye?
According to the manufacturer, the answer is yes. This is made possible because of the UV-C technology, which helps create radicals that break down CH20 and CO and H2O.
