  • Product Overview

    Eliminate allergy-triggering dust, pollen, mold, pet dander, and more with the Winix WAC5500 Air Cleaner with PlasmaWave Technology. Designed to purify the air in large spaces up to 350 square feet, the Winix 5500 uses a 3-stage HEPA filtration system and Winix's unique PlasmaWave Technology to create cleaner, healthier air every minute. Enhanced operating features—including electronic controls, an air quality sensor, 4 fan speeds, and an auto mode—mean low-hassle operation. It's never been easier to start breathing safer, allergen-free air in your home or office.


     

    PlasmaWave Purification Technology

    The Winix PlasmaWave 5500 Air Cleaner uses a 3-stage air filtration system to efficiently rid your air of harmful allergens, unpleasant odors, and illness-causing bacteria.

    Carbon Pre-Filter - Air first passes through a carbon pre-filter to trap large particles such as dust, pollen, lint, and pet hair. Formulated with activated carbon material, this filter also absorbs light household odors such as smoke and pet odors.

    True HEPA Filter - Next, air passes through a true HEPA filter (High Efficiency Particulate Air filter) where 99.97% of allergen particles as small as 0.3 microns are captured and contained. Unlike conventional HEPA filters, this filter is washable and lasts up to 3 times as long as non-washable HEPA filters, saving you the hassle and costs of replacing filters.

    PlasmaWave Technology - As the final stage of air-cleaning, the Winix 5500 uses PlasmaWave technology to instantly neutralize airborne viruses, bacteria, chemical vapors, odors, and gases. This technology generates and releases thousands of negatively and positively charged ions, which combine with water vapor in the air to form Hydroxyls. These molecules attack any remaining airborne pathogens, rendering them harmless. Rest assured that NO harmful ozone is generated during this process. The Winix 5500 has increased flexibility with an option that lets you turn the PlasmaWave feature on and off.

    Low-Hassle Operation

    The Winix 5500 Air Cleaner is packed with enhanced features that simplify operation and make it easier than ever to create cleaner, healthier air. An electronic pushbutton control panel makes it easy to select among 4 purification speeds, stay on top of the filter replacement indicator, and toggle between operating modes. This air purifier is also equipped with a sleep mode, which directs the unit to operate on the lowest and quietest speed and dims the control panel lights to give you a more restful sleep.

    The WAC5500's handy air quality sensor literally takes the guesswork out of figuring out which fan speed to choose. The air quality sensor continuously measures the quality of your room's air and indicates when your indoor air quality is low, medium, or high. When the air purifier is set on auto mode, your fan speed adjusts automatically based on information from the air quality sensor for convenient set-it-and-forget-it operation.

    Additional Features

    • Super-Quiet Operation - With 4 fan speeds, it's easy to find a quiet level of purification that won't disturb your daily activities.
    •  
    • Remote Control - Conveniently select and update your air purifier's settings from up to 20 feet away.
    •  
    • Energy Star-Rated - Energy Star operation means this air purifier operates 40% more efficiently than conventional non-Energy Star air purifiers. This can save you up to $25 annually on your utility bills.
    •  
    • AHAM-Certified - Air cleaners certified by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers have been independently tested for their coverage area using AHAM's air-cleaning performance standard. The Winix 5500 carries CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) ratings of: Dust - 248; Pollen - 251; and Tobacco Smoke - 235.

    Summary

    The Winix PlasmaWave 5500 Air Cleaner combines powerful HEPA air filtration with easy-to-use features for hassle-free air purification.

    What Customers Love

    • Automated Operation - Using measurements from the air quality sensor, the WAC5500 automatically adjusts fan speed to address the amount of pollutants in your space.

    Things To Consider

    • No Programmable Timer - Some air purifiers include a programmable timer that allows you to program power-on and power-off times in advance, which can boost energy savings.

          We purchased our first air cleaner for our 2 year old sons bedroom who suffers from seasonal allergies. Since we have a farmhouse built in 1870, and recently remodeled and two toddlers, we purchased 2 more. We put one air cleaner each bedroom and have been so happy with the results. Less dust/odors and less stuffy noses in the morning!

            We are glad we bought this filter; we were so pleased we bought a second one for the bedroom. It's affordable and works great in both our living/kitchen area and bedrooms. It's quiet unless it turns on turbo, but the noise is temporary. My husband has very bad allergies and was suffering from severe attacks. The filter has solved that. We're even able to have a cat now, and he is EXTREMELY allergic to cats. I've been recommending this to all our family and friends with allergies.

              I purchased this air cleaner about 2 weeks ago after research and reading all of the positive reviews. I just love it. The air is cleaner and the odors are gone. It is so quiet that I forget it is on. Excellent purchase and I plan to get another one soon.

                This was a gift for my birthday. We place the air purifier in the kitchen/dining area during the day because that's the area we spend most of our time. Then early evening we move it into our bedroom. Using the purifier enables me to breathe deeper and get relief from asthma. My daughter ordered hers the next day after experiencing ours. We are really promoting this product to others that live in the assisted living apartments! We also like that one of the filters can be washed and reused!

                  We did a lot of research to find the quietest and most affordable air Purifier. And this is what we found. We have been using it for about a month now, and it is extremely quiet and unobtrusive. It is in the living room, and it is easy to just forget that it is there. The lowest setting is extremely quiet, especially in comparison to some other ones we have tried. I like that there is a sensor on it, and that if it senses there is some need to go to a higher fan speed, it will do it and then go back to low. Wow we have not actually washed the filter yet, I was one of the reasons we bought it as well.

                    During the day we keep the Winix running in the kitchen/living room and move it to our bedroom for the evening. We have two Golden Retrievers that sleep in our room and we have noticed fresher air and alot less dust.
                    My husband spent quite a few days researching for the best air purifier until he was sold on this unit.
