The Winix PlasmaWave 5300 Air Cleaner effectively removes dust, pollen, mold spores, and pet dander. This three-stage air purifier uses two 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 two 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. 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:
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.
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.
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.
Lightweight Design: Weighing only 15 pounds, this compact air purifier takes up little space and is easy to transport from room to room.
Quiet Operation: The Winix PlasmaWave 5300 Air Cleaner features an ultra-quiet fan that emits minimal sound for peaceful, nighttime operation.
Bonus Filters: Included in your package area three additional carbon filters, so you won’t have to worry about purchasing a replacement for an entire year.
Sleep Mode: When operating in sleep function, the air purifier maintains a low fan speed while the lights on the display panel dim for optimum comfort throughout the night.
Replacement Filter Options
This Winix PlasmaWave air cleaner has multiple optional filter packages available for replacing the filters that come with your model. Choose which replacement option works best for you and your space.
- If you're looking for a complete, 4-stage replacement cartridge, consider the Washable Ultimate Filter Cartridge. It includes an anti-bacterial pre-filter, a true washable HEPA filter, mesh shield, and activated carbon filter. These filters, which are all washable and re-usable, work together to combat odors and the tiniest of particles floating around your space. Wash them every 3 months for best results. This is ideal for people who want to wash and re-use filters without having to replace them every 3 months (generally they can be washed up to 6 times without needing to be replaced, but check them after each wash to ensure they're still in good condition).
- Consider the Winix Replacement Carbon Filter 4-pack if you don't need to replace your washable HEPA filter, which lasts a year, but you need to replace carbon filters. While they're used with a washable HEPA, the filters in this package aren't washable and need to be replaced every 3 months to efficiently remove odors and chemical vapors from your space. These 4 filters are all sanitized to provide extra freshness, so be sure to replace them as needed. Note: The carbon filters in the Ultimate package above are washable, but these need to be replaced. It's really just a matter of preference as to whether you'd rather wash or replace your filters--some customers prefer one over the other.
- The Winix Replacement Filter Set is also an option for this model. This package provides you with enough filters to last you an entire year. This package doesn't include the anti-bacterial pre-filter, but comes with a true HEPA filter that can be used for a year, and 4 carbon filters, which can be used for up to 3 months each. Customers who purchase this filter package will need to remove the cartridge provided with your model and only use the HEPA and a carbon filter to catch particles and odors. No mesh shield or anti-bacterial pre-filter are included with this package.
- If you're only looking for a replacement washable HEPA filter and you have plenty of carbon pre-filters, then purchase the Winix Replacement Washable HEPA Filter. This filter removes up to 99.97% of airborne pollutants down to .3 microns and can be washed up to 6 times before you need to replace it. Use this filter in conjunction with the Winix 115119 carbon pre-filters (sold separately).
