No. Floor standing. Which is an advantage because cleaned air is top discharged to circulate in the room.

Answer: 
No washing. You must replace the HEPA white filter. About $60. We're still waiting for the first of our two machines to indicate it's time to replace. Carbon filters change every 3 months. Extras come with the unit to cover the first year.

Answer: 
No, the true HEPA filter should not be washed and reused. Dependent on the environment, it is recommended that you change the carbon pre-filter every three months and the true HEPA filter every 12 months.

October 8, 2015
We just bought a house that the original owner was a smoker. The last owners were not and lived there for 5 years. My family thinks I am crazy but I swear I can still smell it! Would this help?

Thank you!

Answer: 
Be aware, old smoke isn't smoke and isn't in the air. It's layered on the walls, ceiling, carpet, floors. This unit cleans new smoke while it's still in the air, before it lands.

Answer: 
Sorry, we do not smoke, but it does get rid of odors so I would guess that would hold true for smoke. This is a very powerful machine for its size and will handle just about any air pollution problem.

5300 True HEPA Air Cleaner with PlasmaWave Technology is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 198.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Great product. I would definitely recommend it. It detects scents very easily. Also great as white noise when all the way up. Hoping to order another one very soon.
Date published: 2016-08-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is very good. It is very quiet and effective. And it's price is fantastic! This product was everything that was advertised about it. It is very quiet and works very well removing particulates from the air and works well in automatic mode which changes motor speeds by its self if it detects anything in the air!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this for my 4-year-old daughter and she feels way better after putting into use in her room. It automatically adjust the fan speed so you can just leave it on and forget it!
Date published: 2016-08-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from love, love, love them I bought two of them, one for our bedroom and one to handle the living room and dining room. They work wonderfully. I have allergies and asthma and since turning them on I have not needed any meds while in my home. I have two dogs and a cat who all shed and add to my allergy discomfort and these take care of it also we have been having some dampness in the basement and mold and these have helped greatly. I love they change speed when needed automatically so no effort from me needed. On the lowest setting you can not even hear it running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great air cleaner I have had this working in our house, in living room, for over 4 months now, so I could give it a real test period. Overall we are very pleased with it and works as directed. It does clean up the air properly as guests do not even recognize we have 2 cats until they see them. The auto-sensing air quality feature is very cool as it automatically filters air faster as needed. This is very quiet usually except on super high. I would highly recommend it as I did a lot of research on true air cleaners and this is the best bang for the buck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it I have noticed the musty smell is leaving my home. It is very quiet. I gave it 4 stars because I haven't had it a year. If its still working as well then, it can have 5. Home Depot had the best price and free shipping was so great. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great My son wasn't sleeping well and would wake up with a sore throat.. lethargic. This happened everytime the seasons started changing. After the first night he felt a lot better and within a few days no longer had issues sleeping. Highly recommended!
Date published: 2016-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best money I have ever spent! Quiet! Works just as stated. Keeps the dust under control so I don't need to clean as often. I have put this in my bedroom and during the day I take a time out just to go in, feel and smell the cool clean air. I was amazed at the difference from my living room (no air purifier) to my bedroom. Will need to buy more to put one in every room. Love this product and can't believe that I have been this long without it. I did research all of the other products and purchased this one because of its ratings and warranty. Again, Great Product. I highly recommend buying one.
