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

Answer: 
The Winix 5300 works best when on the ground. The air is taken in from the front and side and it goes out from the top.

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, you should never try to wash the Hepa filter. It is not designed to be washed. The filters are not that expensive just replace each 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.

Answer: 
I do not know the answer to your question. I am not sure if physical filters can accomplish that. I do know that this air cleaner does a great job, especially with the extra charcoal filter. (see earlier comments about adding another filter)

I doubt it. While it captures a good deal of dust, I have dogs, and it doesn't do anything for the "doggy smell".

The odor control carbon filter sheets in the Winix 5500 can help reduce formaldehyde odors, but it will not eliminate them.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 195 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does exactly what is described Bought the first one for the home office / kitchen area. A week later, bought a second one for the master bedroom. As is described in the info, the unit detects the presence of an odor, or cat or dog dander, or in our case, cigarette smoke and automatically speeds up the fan until it clears the area of the offending air particles. We couldn't be more pleased with our two units cleaning up around us. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Never used an air cleaner before - It was easy to set up and seems to be working fine - I wasn't sure, since I thought the air quality was worse than what it actually turned out to be - it revved itself up when I started cooking several days later and cleaned out the smoking odors quickly- I agree with another review that it would have been great if the manufacturer had put some sort of handle on it to make it easier to move from one room to another. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finally Clean Air!! What a difference this air cleanser made in our TV room & kitchen where our puppies, who shed a lot, spend most of their time. The air smells clean & fresh and there is a lot less hair and dust. We will definitely buy another for the upstairs. May 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Air cleaner The unit does a great job taking dust and dog hair out of the room. This is in a bedroom with three dogs. Unfortunately, doesn't do anything about doggy smell. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Winix air cleaner The filter is quiet and effective for removing odors and allergins. I have had a unit for a year and just bought an additional unit for another room March 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 10, 2016
