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 383.

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!

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No noticeable difference in air quality. After running continuously... No noticeable difference in air quality. After running continuously for several days in an empty closed closet even the indicator on the machine indicated low air quality. The air cleaner is rated for 350 sf. The closet was nowhere near that size.

I've been using two of these for the past five years in my two-level loft condo which is a block from a 10-lane busy interstate. I don't change/clean the filters as often as recommended (usually every 9-12 months). Nevertheless, these units both operate flawlessly. In fact, I'm not really aware of their presence as they quietly and efficently do their job. Before purchasing them, I'd planned on moving because of the fine layer of black grime (I suspect this was a toxic mixture from the freeway with base of fine rubber tire particles) that settled on every horizontal surface within a day or two of any window being opened. That's all a thing of the past.

I used to wake up with a terrible headache practically every morning and decided to try this air cleaner to see if it would help alleviate some of them. The very first morning there was no headache!! And it's been that way every morning for the few months I have had this filter. I used to have a sound machine to help me sleep, which I have now gotten rid of because this filter makes a soft, soothing sound which is far better than the sound machine. I like it on the high setting. On the "sleep" setting you barely hear anything at all. I love all the features, especially the colored monitor of air quality to show when it's clean. The Winix was worth every penny and more for me.

I have a very segmented Mid Century house so I pretty much need one in each room. There were two other rooms in my home that I wanted purifiers in but I decided to cheap out and try to get some less expensive ones hoping they'd do the job. I was very disappointed in them so finally after a year I broke down and got the Winix 5500 for those two rooms. I like the fact that you can clean the filter on these and extend the life of the main filter. Purchasing filters for my other 4 units combined after a year was the same cost of one of the units ( and you have to do that once a year ) This unit's filter is supposed to last 3 times longer so I'm looking forward to not having to buy filters for these as often. The unit itself works WONDERFUL , you get what you pay for ! Save yourself the expense of buying cheaper ones and realizing they don't do the job and then having to spend even more money to buy a good one, lesson learned !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly efficient As much as I wanted to believe that a washable HEPA filter air filtering machine existed (at a reasonable price no less), I have been thrilled with the consistent performance of this one! Super quiet, detects impurities and removes them automatically, keeps everyday dust from settling on furniture by taking it from the air. It's tough on odors, though I can't honestly say it's completely eliminated our tough one (cigarette). At this price, I will invest in another unit for another room that likes to capture and hold air, rather than circulate. i highly recommend this air machine, especially if it's not your first machine. You will be very impressed!
