If you’re on a budget but still want an air purifier that has the power and features of an upper mid-grade unit then the GermGuardian 3-in-1 Air Cleaning System is for you, my friend.
This 3-in-1 air purifier utilizes a multi-level filtration system that helps in absorbing allergens and pollutants and circulating them back clean, pure, and fresh air. This filtration system consists of three main components – a pre-filter and charcoal layer, a true HEPA filter, and UV-C light. So, in a low budget, you will get a good service.
Design and Size
This germguardian AC5250PT is one of the larger purifiers in the Germguardian AC series line, which are some of the best-selling air purifiers in the world! Just like its brothers, it features a similar design both in style and air purification quality.
This germguardian AC5250PT True HEPA Air Purifier is a tall, slender air purifier with a tower-style design. This tower unit stands at a 28-inch height which is a bit taller than Germguardian AC4825. It weighs only 10.5 lbs.
In fact, this device looks like a large speaker that can be fit anywhere in your office, bedroom, or living room. A control panel which is conveniently located at the top of the device is very easy to operate. By using this control panel, you can easily change the fan speed, turning on and off the UV-C system, and observing UV bulb and filter replacement warnings.
Overall, we are satisfied with The Germguardian AC5250PT looks; It’s attractive enough and slim enough to be suitable for pretty much all homes.
Sometimes the filtration system determines how powerful an air purifier is when it comes to destroying the pollutants. So, we need to look at how many filters it has and what types of filters are used in this air purifier. The guardian technology has used 3 types of purification systems in some of its earlier air purifier. Germguardian AC5250PT also uses the same 3-in-1 air cleaning system. Here are the three stages of filtration in this germguardian AC5250PT air purifier.
- Pre-filter: – Combining with the Activated Carbon filter, this layer of air filter can remove large airborne particles and neutralize odors from pets, cooking, chemicals, and tobacco, giving your home a scent-free but refreshing smell.
- True HEPA filter:- Germguardian AC5250PT uses a True HEPA Filter that can trap microscopic particles as small as 0.3 microns in width with 99.97% effectiveness. This filter also has an added Pet Pure anti-microbial agent to prevent mold and mildew growth.
- UV-C Light Technology: – This air purifier also uses an optional UV-C light technology that works with Titanium Dioxide to reduce airborne bacteria, viruses and mold spores.
Filter replacement: – You need to replace the air filter every 6-8 months depending on the use.
CADR ratings are very important for an air purifier because the CADR ratings are used to determine the efficiency of an air purifier at removing three types of airborne pollutants – smoke, dust, and pollen. Like most CADR ratings, the higher the figure, the better the air purifier. The Germguardian AC5250PT CADR scores 116 for smoke, 126 for dust, and 128 for pollen. Its CADR ratings are better than the Germguardian AC4825 and AC4300BPTCA.
ACH or air change per hour is used to determine how many times an air purifier can purify its coverage area. The more times it cleans, the better it is. The Germguardian AC5250PT can purify 180 square feet area in every 15 minutes.
The Germguardian AC5250PT has come with high fan power, which is as strong as the latest GermGuardian devices. However, the bad side is its high noise level, especially when it runs at the highest setting.
If you run the Germguardian AC5250PT at the lowest setting then the noise level stays in 40 dB, which is higher than some of the normal air purifiers in the market. For example, the Levoit core 300 is only 24 dB and the Levoit vista 200 with only 26 dB.
And when you run it at the highest setting, it will reach as high as 60 dB. Which looks quite noisy. Although, its lowest is 40 dB but still it is not very noisy. Because 40 dB is common for air purifiers. If you run this at the lowest setting, then it won’t produce much noise.
Usually, air purifiers come with different room coverage. So, before you pick one up from the store, make sure you know in which room you’ll place it in and how large the room is. The AC5250PT is suitable for rooms as large as 180 square feet. Although this AC5250PT air purifier will not go with a large room but it can be an ideal choice for small to medium-sized rooms.
The LED touch control panel is conveniently located on the top of the device and is also very easy to use. It has 5 fan speed and the great news is that Germguardian AC5250PT allows you to select 1-8 hour settings before it shuts off.
You can also set it to night mode where it goes to the lowest fan speed and turns the display off. Here you will get a filter replacement indicator light, so you can instantly know when it’s time to replace the filter with the filter replacement indicator light. However, you will not have smart features like Smart Sensor or Wi-Fi capability in this air purifier.
If you run Germguardian AC5250PT 8 hours per day, then your energy cost will be approximately $25 per year which is better than other air purifiers from this brand. But, if you think this cost is looking too much for you then you can go for GermGuardian AC4300BPTCA. For running a GermGuardian AC4300BPTCA 8 hours per day you need to pay approximately $19 per year.
With this Germguardian AC5250PT you will get a 5-years warranty! which looks convincing for a low rang tag air purifier.
