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.

Does this air cleaner require the purchase of any kind of filter replacements or anything else?

Asked by: Patty
I love it!! I vacuum mine in between washing (3mths). The filter media cartridge is a size B and contains charcoal as well. The cover pops off from the bottom then lift up.

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 390.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this filter to help regulate the air in... I bought this filter to help regulate the air in my home during the Santa Ana winds. Everyone in my family has allergies or asthma. Three weeks after setting it up the Thomas Fire started near our home. Outside it was impossible for us to breathe. Inside our home we could not smell the smoke.

Very quiet in lower modes, The air is blown straight up instead of at you like many other filters. The speed mode button is a little finicky and it is not the best at removing odors, but we bought a second and may get a third.

Use near the kitchen and it totally eliminates any “cooking” smells from garlic, fish, etc. Nice that you can hose off the HEPA filter routinely instead of constantly replacing it. 3rd Winix product, very satisfied.

Pleased with the design, and leave one going full-time in the basement den. Odd thing, when we open a window it decides the air is not as fresh as it was before. Maybe the detector doesn't like ozone?
