there is some confusion regarding these products for the ac4800 series so ill make this as clear as possible in hopes that this will help someone in the way i needed help, so for these air purifiers there is only one type of filter needed, now this particular filter for sale here is a combination, it is the primary filter needed for the filter to functionc, and the additional filter for extra performance, i am very happy with my purchase but just something to keep in mind is you can buy the main filter (4pack) and the same size pack of the secondary filters and just attach them yourself, it is literally velcro so you can easily stick it, and save some cash, this is still fairly priced and is exactly what is shown, so happy customer here
This filter catches more impurities and odors from the air then I had hoped for. I use these for 3-4 month increments and will vacuum it half way through. Below are photos of a used filter on the left after 4 months of use (most days having the air filter running 24 hours in a row) next to a new unused one. Highly recommended if you are someone who likes a clean home with clean air. This filer is extremely easy to replace.
The first GermGuardian I purchased produced a chemical smell for about 2 months. After that, the air it filtered smelled crisp and clean. Expecting the same lengthy breaking in period, I was thrilled that from the moment we turned our second GermGuardian on it produced no smell at all. Not only does this keep visitors with a cat allergy comfortable in our cat friendly house, but we all seem to be breathing better even during pollen and mold seasons. Suffice to say, we are so pleased with this product that we now have 4 of them.
My air purifier is 3 months old and have not yet had the need to use this. I do clean it ever 30 days as my instruction book suggested, by vacuuming filters. Now at 60 days I just changed the prefilter (charcoal) one for first time this month. It is not an expensive one but the cleaner it stays the longer it will be before I have to change the combination Heppa / charcoal expensive filter. I have COPD and run my unit 24/7. Ran it on high for first 24 hours. Then mostly use it on low except when commercial mowers show up when I put it back on high for 2 hours. On low for all the rest of the time and it works great!
I've had my GermGuardian for awhile now and have been very happy with it. When it came time to replace the filter, I figured I should stick with the filters from the same company. What I received is exactly what I ordered. Granted, the filter is different from the one that came with my GermGuardian--it's not as snug, it's a different color, and the build seems slightly different. When I saw this, I got a bit nervous and looked at the reviews again, which complained of counterfeits with these conditions. I went to the GermGuardian website to compare and found that, right on the website, they describe these new changes in their filters.
I received a genuine GermGuardian filter without any issues or defects, the exact right size for my GermGuardian air purifier. So far, it works exactly as well as the last one. If there are any changes in the future, I'll update my review. I had to take a star off because $27 is a ridiculous price for what you're getting.

I had trouble sleeping at night as my nose would become stuffy and I couldn't breath properly which led to dry mouth and tired days. I tired OTC remedies and doctor prescribed sprays. Nothing worked until I bought the GermGuardian Air Purifier. I have had it about nine months and have changed the filter once. I am in the process of changing it for the second time now. This means cheap to keep, quiet white noise and I run it 24/7. I am in the desert where we get dust storms and I am on corner so traffic is steady and road dust abounds. I would recommend this to anyone having the issues I had. I forgot to mention I am a dog lover and yes, I sleep with a dog. She was not the problem as the issue arose years before I had her in the house. Give it a try.
I purchased the Germ Guardian FLT4825 True HEPA GENUINE Air Purifier Replacement Filter and it's an exact replacement for my units and has always been the best filter to replace in the Germ Guardians. I've tried multiple after market replacement filters that weren't "Genuine" replacement filters and there's really none I've tried that work as well as the genuine ones. The other replacements may fit and are cheaper and do work but the air is just better when I return to the "Genuine" ones here from Germ Guardian. Albeit, they're more money but more and more I'm finding they're the best to use in my units.
Thank you for the awesome review! We do recommend using our genuine replacement filters, as they are the ones tested and designed to fit into our air purifiers. You can also vacuum off the charcoal portion of your filter to extend the life of your HEPA. If you ever have any questions, feel free to reach out to our customer support team for assistance!

I have an allergic induced asthma and live in a high desert location. Seasonal allergies get my asthma going and I've been able to control my asthma by having the Germ Guardian air filtration unit going day and night in my house. If you have pets that release dander and bring in irritants into your home, or if you live in heavily populated areas with pollution being an issue, I can see this improving your air quality. One of these filters last me about 3 months, and on seasons where there are more pollutants in the air, I go through the charcoal part of the filters more often. It keeps the costs down to buy the charcoal filters separate and that way you only have to replace the cheaper charcoal filter more often, and the hepa filter lasts you even longer.
Thank you for the 5-star review! We appreciate the feedback and are happy you are enjoying your purifier and filters.

Sometimes OEM is just the best thing, and these filters really do work. i can tell the difference in the different rooms that have these filters installed. Within a month they are covered in dust, which i just vacuum for about 3-4 months at which time they just need to be replaced. This product has made a huge difference in my life being a bad allergy sufferer.
I ordered the 1 pack and realized it's maybe 1/16" shorter than the original filter that came in the GermGuardian. There's also no sponge at the top and bottom flat surfaces, which probably help with this problem. I ended up shoving some fabric in there to ensure no air goes around the filter.. The black carbon layer is also thinner and "softer" than the original. Not sure if that'll affect its filtering capability, but we'll see over time.
