Are the Winix 5300 Air Purifier's filters reusable? if not how often do they need to be replaced?
The 5300–2 doesn’t feature ant washable filters.
The HEPA filter is replaced when needed (there’s a sensor on the machine that lets you know) and the carbon filter is replaced every 3 months.
How strong is the Voc removing capabilities on the Winix 5300 Air Purifier? Can you use it in a room used for oil painting/ turpenoid?
Well, the Winix lowers VOC’s, but it isn’t intended to completely remove them.
Here's what you get when you buy this Air Purifier:
- WINIX 5300-2 Air Purifier
- AOC Carbon filter
- True HEPA Filter
- PlasmaWave Technology
- User’s gudie
The unit is an amazing air purifier, the Winix 5300 comes with 1 HEPA filter and 4 carbon filters. They recommend you change the HEPA filter once per year and the carbon filters once every 3 months. So, you'll have a 1 year supply right off the bat. This machine is amazingly quite, unless you manually adjust the fan speed to 'turbo'. Air enters from the front and exits from the top, so it does a really good job of circulating the air in the room.
