Winix Air Purifier Comparison

These three Winix air purifiers are the top models from the Winix and offer a great variety of features, with something for everyone.

Depending on what you are looking for, one of these purifiers is likely to stand out to you, and below we will point out the differences so you can clearly understand your options before purchasing.

To begin, all of these units do share some features. The WAC5300, WAC5500 and WAC9500 will all include:

  • True HEPA Filtration, which is ideal for allergy and asthma sufferers.
  • A feature that senses the air quality around the unit and allows the purifier to adjust itself accordingly when switched to Auto-Mode. This equates to hassle-free operation.
  • Energy Star Qualified electricity requirements. These units save on money and guilt.
  • Winix’s PlasmaWave technology to actively combat airborne contaminants.

Now to point out some important differences:

  • While the 5500 and 9500 come with a remote, the 5300 does not.
  • While the 5500 and 9500 have the ability to turn off the PlasmaWave technology, the 5300 does not.
  • While the 5300 and 5500 have an air quality sensor for airborne particulates, the 9500 has sensors for both particulates and chemical vapors.
  • The 9500 has a light sensor that automatically adjusts the purifier to its lowest setting at night for quiet operation.
  • The 5300 comes with a standard HEPA filter and activated carbon pre-filters. The 5500 comes with a washable HEPA filter and activated carbon pre-filters. The 9500 comes with the Ultimate Filter Cartridge, which incorporates a Washable Anti-Bacterial Pre-Filter, a 99.99% effective non-washable True HEPA filter, Nano Silver Anti-Microbial Treatment, and a Washable AOC (Advanced Odor Control) Carbon Filter.

Some of the above differences will affect convenience and maintenance. Reference the chart below for other factors which will affect performance such as the recommended room size and AHAM CADR ratings.

It is ultimately up to you to look at things like room size, features desired, and your budget to decide which of these three units is the best fit for you.
