Can this unit be turned on all the time? Or do i need to turn it off once in awhile? If yes, how often and for how long?

Thanks!
Asked by: Annie
I leave the one in the living area on all the time and turn the one in the bedroom on and off. The longer it runs the more air it will turn over, however, turning on and off is probably a better option.

Is this good for mold removal?

Asked by: Mold
No, I don't think so. If anything, it would remove the musty smell from the air

5500 Washable True-HEPA Air Cleaner with PlasmaWave Technology is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 361.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticed a difference right out of the box. Easy as pie to set up, pull out of box read quick set ... Noticed a difference right out of the box. Easy as pie to set up, pull out of box read quick set directions. Prepare filters, and turn on. Must be placed in certain locations to work at its best but, no big deal. Very quite, (unless you need a quick air cleaning on turbo) even then it I very tolerable. The sneezing associated with the air in the house has all but gone away. (This in less than a one month) Price is mid range in comparison with others, very lightweight, not as small as others, considering the job it must do that's ok in my opinion. will be buying another shortly for the other room. In conclusion, would Highly Recommend.

I waited to write a review until we had this product long enough to fairly evaluate it. We have had this air purifier for a little over a month now. We placed it in our master bedroom because my husband has asthma and allergies. We keep the bedroom door shut, so our two cats don't have access , have allergy protector covers on the pillows and mattress, and a pricy HEPA filtered vacuum. My husband, who has had to take a 24 hr allergy pill every morning, remarked this morning, that he has not taken one for "awhile" and he attributes this to our latest purchase, the Winix Air Purifier. He was very skeptical when I purchased this. What a change in attitude! Thanks!

With my COPD when ever some odors fill the air from cooking or outside odors come in when the door is open for a little bit, the machine kicks into a higher mode and then goes back to normal once the air becomes cleaner. Love it. So simple to clean and replace filters.
