I think you’ll agree with me when I say:

It’s REALLY hard to choose an air purifier with all the options available!

Or is it?

Well, it turns out, that after years and hundreds of hours of testing & reviewing, we have strong opinions about what makes the best air filtration system: level of purification, efficiency, and maintenance.

Common Questions

The 5300–2 doesn't feature ant washable filters. The HEPA filter is replaced when needed (there is a sensor on the machine that lets you know) and the carbon filter is replaced every 3 months.

Well, the Winix lowers VOC's, but it isn't intended to completely remove them.

Our Verdict

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.
