WHY USE GENUINE GERMGUARDIAN FILTER REPLACEMENTS Your purifier is only as powerful and effective as the filter you put inside, and our Genuine GermGuardian replacement parts are essential for maintaining product performance.
The AC4100 does come equipped with UV functionality but it is very poorly implemented. First of all, the bulb used for UV is only 2 watts. Second, its situated behind a metal bracket at the very bottom of the air purifier. We’re not even sure how any UV light makes contact with any air that moves through the air purifier.
The bottom line – do not buy this air purifier for its UV functionality. The good news though: you don’t need to kill germs to filter them from the air. This unit will do just fine removing germs from the air in very small rooms with its HEPA filter. It doesn’t need to kill them to remove them from the air.
