The AC-2102 features a Four-Stage filter assembly: Activated Carbon, HEPA, VOC and TiO2 with UV Light. Effectively removes volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odors and harmful particles, up to 465 square feet and operates continuously for up to 2,000 hours.
Simple question: What is needed for maintenance.
Do I need to replace the UV bulb and if so when do I know it is not effective anymore?
How long will the hepa filter last?
How long does the carbon filter last.

Hi multiplyxtwo, we were able to verify this information with our support team. Simple maintenance should include keeping the air inlet clean from dust build up. Filters have indicators to remind customers for replacement: Carbon & VOC = 2000 hrs / HEPA = 8000 hrs. As for the UV bulb, unfortunately, there is no indicator. But with the unit operating, you can look through the air outlet vent opening and see the bluish glow. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.

Hi snowwhitej, one of the filters for this air cleaner uses TiO2 fitter with UV light. This filter works when UV rays combine with the TiO2-coated filter. This process creates hydroxyl radicals and super-oxide ions. These electrons aggressively combine with other elements in the air and once they are bound together, a chemical reaction takes place and oxidizes or burns the pollutants which breaks them down into harmless carbon dioxide and water molecules. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 8, 2014
