  • Product Overview

    Don’t just eliminate a few unhealthy airborne particles; comprehensively cleanse your indoor air of allergens, pet dander, bacteria, mold, viruses, unpleasant odors, and much more with the Germ Guardian AC5000 UV-C and True HEPA Air Purifier. The AC5000 is powered by a dynamic multi-level air filtration system that includes a pre-filter, a true HEPA filter, and UV-C light technology. With three power settings, the AC5000 is powerful enough to clean the air in your bedroom, living room, or office. A lightweight, slender design helps you easily move the system to another space for clean air anywhere. Plus, this UV air purifier is incredibly simple to operate and runs quietly. 

    Unparalleled Air Filtration

    The air in your home or office can be filled with airborne pollutants. Occasionally, a simple air filtration system is not powerful enough to adequately clean your air. With the AC5000 air cleaner's multiple levels of air filtration, you can rest assured that your room is filled with the cleanest, freshest air.  This comprehensive filtration system includes:

    • Charcoal Pre-Filter: Initially captures large dust particles, lint, and pet hair and removes odors from smoking, cooking, and pets.
    • True HEPA Filter: Captures 99.9% of airborne particles, such as dust mites, mold spores, pollens, pet dander, and other debris.
    • UV-C Light Technology: Optional UV-C light technology is also used to further enhance the AC5000’s air filtration capability.  UV-C light effectively penetrates and kills viruses, bacteria, and other germs. This light alters the genetic structure of the germs to prevent them from reproducing and, ultimately, destroys them.

    Simple, Straightforward Operation

    Don’t let the advanced air filtration system frighten you. This HEPA air purifier is remarkably simple to operate. To activate the unit, just turn the power knob to clockwise and a light indicates that it is on. Use the same control to choose one of three power modes — low, medium, or high — to quietly and thoroughly clean the air in any room up to 193 square feet. A single button allows you to boost the AC5000’s performance by activating the UV-C light.


    Featuring a convenient carrying handle and weighing only 10 pounds, the AC5000 air cleaner can be moved effortlessly to any area that needs clean air. In addition, a slender tower design allows this air purifier fit into even the tightest spaces.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    How do you know when it's time to replace the filter for this air purifier?

    The combination HEPA filter should be replaced every 6 months, depending on your frequency of use. When the white HEPA filter turns from white to dark grey or black, it is time to replace the filter. If the filter is still white, it does not need to be replaced.

    It's noisy on medium and high settings. I have to leave it on low if I am in the room.

    Comments about Germ Guardian AC5000 UV-C and True HEPA Air Purifier:

    Germguardian works as advertised. It's quiet when used on the 1st two speeds but is loud on max. The Ultraviolet light is a good thing as it kills bacteria, mold, and viruses. It also looks very cool with the blue light on the top of the unit. I purchased a replacement UV bulb so I am not out of business when it does burn out. Most reviews indicate the bulb lasts 6 months. The filters are not unreasonably priced. This replaces my Healthmate- mostly because the Healthmate Hepa costs $200 new and that is absurd. So far living room smells good- and I have a cat and a stinky old hound!

    Comments about Germ Guardian AC5000 UV-C and True HEPA Air Purifier:

    I purchased this unit earlier today and after 5 hours of use I took the filter out and you could see where dust was seeping in through the side of the filter and collecting on the housing. The UV-C light isn't strong enough to kill the airborne bacteria like the manufacturer claims. First thing in the morning the Germ Guardian AC5000 is going back

    Comments about Germ Guardian AC5000 UV-C and True HEPA Air Purifier:

    These units really work well. My office building flooded, and we could not get rid of the lingering smell. I purchased 2 units, and in no time the smell was gone. After a minor leak in another of our buildings, I was asked to purchase a third. It also performed as planned and we have had no issues. They are extremely quiet on low speed (it has 3), and even on high, you almost fail to notice. I would purchase again definitely.

    Comments about Germ Guardian AC5000 UV-C and True HEPA Air Purifier:

    This unit has been good since the day we started using it, about 3 weeks ago. The noise level is very low; it looks "cool" with the UV light around top rim; and air seems cleaner in our 3 person office. would recommend to anyone. No negative at this point
