Not to make us sound sickly, but my husband has asthma and I get really bad seasonal allergies in the spring. Since we both have issues with breathing at some point or another, I was interested to see what I could do to improve the quality of the air inside our home. I received a Germguardian 3-in-1 Tabletop Air Cleaning System by Guardian Technologies® for the purpose of this review. Let me tell you, we’ve been using it for a week or so and I’m already impressed. This home air purifier showed me real results the very first time I used it.
We set up our 3-in-1 UV power true HEPA odor reduction air cleaning system in our bedroom on top of my husband’s tall dresser. It plugs into the outlet that turns on and off with a small lamp, so it is a nice setup that we can easily control without reaching for the device every time to turn it off or on. We’ve probably run our home air purifier for about 10 hours or more so far. Even the first day when we ran it for about two hours continuously, I immediately noticed that our bedroom had a different scent – very clean and pure! It smelled markedly different and I was thrilled for the immediate change.
The Germguardian 3-in-1 Tabletop Air Cleaning System is designed for small to medium-sized rooms and processes the air in a 200-square-foot room every hour, with a focus on removing odor as well as smoke particles, capturing allergens, pet dander, and dust, and killing airborne mold spores and other unwanted particles. The tabletop air purifier harnesses the power of UV light and filters with charcoal to kill germs. The cleaning efficiency is rated at capturing 99.97% of germs and particles in the air, passing through the filter at size .3 microns or greater.
At a glance the air purifying unit reminds me of a standard black alarm clock without all the buttons and dials. It is sleek and unobtrusive, so you can put it in just about any room in the house. Since we spend a considerable amount of time sleeping each day, keeping our unit in the bedroom made the most sense for us. The purifier produces white noise, which can aid those who find difficulty in getting to sleep. It is fairly quiet, but I don’t think we would watch television and run the purifier at the same time in our room.
Germguardian recommends replacing the filter every six months. I really enjoy the clean air and odor removal that this unit provides and I will absolutely be purchasing replacement filters so we can continue using this device to enhance our living areas.
The AC4010 Tabletop 3-in-1 True HEPA Air Cleaning System lists at $99.99 and retails for $69.99. For more information on Germguardian air cleaning products or Guardian Technologies, please check out www.germguardian.com and www.guardiantechnologies.com.
