The Winix PlasmaWave 5300 Air Cleaner effectively removes dust, pollen, mold spores, and pet dander. This 3-stage air purifier uses 2 filters to remove 99.97% of common airborne particles invisible to the human eye, leaving you with a cleaner, healthier indoor environment. In addition to 2 air filters, the Winix 5300 HEPA Air Purifier features PlasmaWave technology to neutralize bacteria, odors, and gases in the air. This compact room air purifier treats bedrooms, home offices, and other areas measuring up to 350 square feet.
3-Stage Air Purification with PlasmaWave
The Winix 5300 Air Cleaner quietly and efficiently captures and neutralizes a broad range of indoor pollutants, making it an excellent air purification system for asthma- and allergy-sufferers, pet owners, and anyone looking to improve their indoor air quality.
How It Works
The air purifier pulls in room air through the air inlet grille on the front panel and cleans the air using a three-stage treatment process:
Stage 1 - Carbon Pre-Filter
Air passes through a carbon pre-filter in the first filtration stage. This filter traps dust, pollen, lint, and pet hair. In addition to capturing large particles visible to the human eye, the carbon filter also reduces odors like those left in the air by cigarette smoke and cooking.
Stage 2 - HEPA Filtration
After air is processed through the pre-filter, it goes through a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter. This filter captures 99.97% of airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, including pollen, pet dander, mold spores, dust, and smoke.
Stage 3 - PlasmaWave Technology
The final stage of cleaning uses Winix PlasmaWave technology. This technology generates thousands of negatively and positively charged ions each second. As the ions are released, they combine with water vapor in the air to form Hydroxyls. These hydrogen and oxygen molecules attack virus-causing bacteria, chemical vapors, odors, and gases in the air and neutralize them on contact. No harmful ozone is generated with PlasmaWave technology. The Winix 5300 has increased flexibility with an option that lets you turn the PlasmaWave feature on and off.
Intuitive Operating Features
With an electronic control panel and advanced automatic capabilities, the Winix PlasmaWave 5300 Air Purifier is simple to operate and easy to maintain. The digital display panel features soft-touch buttons and user-friendly indicator lights. The fan speed indicator displays the current speed setting with a green light, while the mode indicator illuminates independent signals for the sleep and auto functions.
Additionally, intuitive sensors and indicators ensure efficient operation and help you maintain proper upkeep for lasting performance. To perform effectively, air purifiers require clean air filters. The replace filter indicator illuminates on the control panel when it is time to replace the HEPA air filter (typically once per year). This helps your Winix air cleaner deliver optimum air purifying performance and guarantees healthy air circulation.
The air quality sensor automatically monitors the amount of pollutants in your indoor air and automatically adjusts to an appropriate fan setting for each air quality level. The air quality indicator, located next to the air quality sensor, displays the current air quality level on the control panel. An orange light on the air quality sensor indicates rising levels of airborne pollutants, while a red light notifies the unit of poor air quality. When the red light illuminates, the Winix 5300 Air Cleaner will adjust the fan speed to a maximum setting to treat the air immediately and quickly.
