does this unit have a remote

Asked by: asthmasufferer50
No..... but it does not need one, it has a auto feature that turns the fan higher wh3n needed. It also has a sleep mode but I never use it because I can't hear it on low anyway!

How does it do for old smoke?

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!

Is it wall mountable?

Can it be mounted on the wall to reduce floor clutter?
Asked by: Minousdad
No. Floor standing. Which is an advantage because cleaned air is top discharged to circulate in the room.

The lights are so bright that it illuminates the whole room. The nighttime setting is ridiculous. the fan speed on nighttime is lower than the lowest setting. Why bother having it on at all. There is now way to turn it up. Also no way to direct the air coming out of the machine. The only good thing is you can see the dirt on the prefilter that it collects. This is the dust that you would be breathing.

We had to drop the fan speed because it was drying my wife's throat out. Since we lowered the fan all is well. Its nice and quiet too. The rooms air seems fresher. The manufacturer states it does not create ozone. The air cleaner arrived in perfect working order. You do get extra filters. Replacement filters are not too expensive either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Winix 5300 It works good. I move it around from room to room since I have more than 350sf.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great Air Purifier! The product itself appears to be well built and operates as advertised. There is a air quality sensor that will vary the speed of the fan depending on how good or bad quality of the air in the space. The product comes with 3 replacement carbon filters which is a nice feature compared to other air purifiers which are more expensive, have less features and no replacement filters. The carbon filter was a must for us as it helped pull some paint fumes(VOCs) out of the air in our apartment. It takes time due to relatively low air changes per hour but it did the job.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product... I really love this product. I use it in my bedroom, and it's very quiet in low fan mode. It constantly monitors the air quality, and visually displays the air quality with bar of colored lights. I use it in "auto" mode, it runs quiet until it senses impurities in the air, then it kicks the fan up in speed until the air is clean again. I plan on buying another one for my living room. The plasma wave is supposed to destoy viruses, etc. in the air. This unit does not generate Ozone (which is harmful). I highly recommend this product...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Product I have it in a large room and don't notice much difference (room is about 600 sq ft). When in a smaller room it is a noticeable difference in air. It has nice features but I can't vouch for the air quality detection. Overall I am happy with it but I don't like that the filters aren't washable. So it will cost you over time. It should also come with a handle for easier mobility. I have another one that does have that, it's a simple yet convenient touch.
