Ausclimate Air Purifier Cleaning Guide – it’s so easy

Dirty-Filter

One of the most important points in keeping your WINIX Air Purifier running at is best is maintenance cleaning & regular filter replacement. We often get asked about this in person, so we thought that we’d put together an easy-to-use air purifier cleaning guide to help you get the most out of your machine over the long haul!


Preface: Always remember to pay special attention to your replacement filter indicator. Through regular use, your filter should last you for about a years time. Once this time is up and your replacement filter indicator light comes on, it is very important to replace your filter for effective ongoing air purification. For more check out our replacement filter post here.

These replacement filters are available (with free delivery) on our website page.

Maintenance Cleaning of your Winix Air Purifier

Every week or two, we recommend giving your air purifier a good clean for maximum effectiveness. It is essential that you regularly check and clean your pre-filter, as below.

2

Step 1: Remove the outer casing of your air-purifier

3

4

Step 2: Remove the filter cartridge from within the air-purifier

5

6

Step 3: Give the fan vents on top and inside of the air-purifier a wipe with a damp cloth to remove any dirt/dust build up

7

Step 4: Unclip the ‘Pre-Filter’ from your filter cartridge pack

8

11

Step 5: Give the ‘Pre-Filter’ a good clean with your vacuum (or every now & then give it a wash with clean water)

9

10

Step 6: Vacuum the dust sensors and interior fan vents to remove any excess dust

12

13

Step 7: Clip your ‘pre-filter’ back into place in your filter cartridge pack & then return into the machine, just as it was when you first removed it.
*If you have cleaned your pre-filter with water, make sure to dry it completely before putting it back into the machine

Special notes:
• The above guide is intended for Ausclimate’s WINIX Ultimate 5-Stage Air Purifier
• For Ausclimate's WINIX 4-Stage Air-Purifiers, regular cleaning of the pre-filter is even easier because it is not actually attached to the other filters. Just remove as above, quick clean and return to the machine. It’s that easy.
• For both models, never clean or submerge your HEPA filter in water, only the pre-filter!

If in doubt, please refer to your user manual or get in touch with the Ausclimate team if unsure about anything:

Air Purifier Competition Winner Catch Up


A great little video here that brightened our day, sent in by our Christmas Air Purifier Competition Winner, Michelle McKay. Michelle let us know that everyone in the household has been really benefitting from the Air Purifier, including the "fur-kids". As you can see here, her lovely little rescue cat, Macey seems particularly fond of it! 😊

"Hi team 😊😊 We are absolutely loving the air purifier! So much in fact my little rescue kitty is absolutely obsessed with it.. She loves the clean, fresh air and literally puts her little face right over the vents for fresh air. Really does show that not only do we benefit from air purification, but animals do too.

This has been such a great machine. As a sufferer of serious sinus problems requiring surgery again, this has really helped me with the problems sinuses cause me..I run this machine every day and am so happy with it. It's certainly a purifier I can confidently recommend to anyone wishing to purchase one...even my little Macey who is absolutely obsessed with it... Not only beneficial to us, but to our animals too!

...Ausclimate you certainly have her as a big fan of your products too- It really does show that it helps EVERYONE in the household... both the humans and furkids! I love the purifier- the lights, settings, filter are great too.. Im blessed to have one in my household! Thank you again! <3"
~ Michelle McKay, Wildlife Rescuer


Thanks so much for the update and kind words Michelle, it always warms our hearts to hear that our products are making a difference for people. Just great to hear! We do get lots of feedback on how good these machines are for use with pets and pet-related allergies.

When it's time to replace your filter

Replace-Filter-Indicator

One of the questions that we often get is "How often do I need to replace my air purifier filters?"

As most of you may already know, our Winix Air Purifiers come with their first filter ready to go. In cases of non-stop use, this should last you about 1 year before needing to be replaced. If you are using it less than this, it can last significantly longer! One of the easiest ways to tell if the time has come is the 'replacement filter indicator' as you can see in red in this picture. If this shows up for you, it's time to get your next filter.

Now if it has still not shown up by 18 months, our health experts recommend replacing it anyway at this time due to the nature of the pollutants that the air purifier has captured.

When the time has come, you can easily purchase your next filter designed just for your machine (with free delivery) by either giving us a call or purchasing on our website page.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions at all.

P.S. We'll have a great little guide coming your way soon on how to regularly clean your filters to make sure that you are really getting the best out of them.

Winix Hospital Grade True HEPA Filtration

Hospital Grade HEPA

So just what is Hospital-Grade True HEPA Filtration?

Ausclimate’s Winix range are specifically designed for Australia, giving you the unique combination of superior 'PlasmaWave' air-purification technology and certified H13 Hospital-grade true HEPA filtration. This industry-leading technology & filtration standard effectively remove a broad range of odours, allergens & other airborne pollutants including; dust, smoke, pollen, pet dander, mould, bacteria, viruses and VOCs.

Why is Hospital Grade HEPA so important?

Ausclimate’s Winix air purifier range is certified as meeting the True HEPA Filter H13 certification - Australian Standard (AS 4260-1997)¹. This means that they have a confirmed H13 level of purification, removing 99.97% (minimum efficiency) of airborne pollutants such as viruses, bacteria & allergens as small as 0.3 microns (0.3 microns is far smaller than dust, dust mites, mould spores, pollens, bacteria and even pet dander!). This is the industry standard that defines whether an air purifier is suitable for use in hospital environments and medical applications including; clean-rooms, pharmaceutical manufacturing and any environment where clean/sterile conditions are required.

Not all HEPA filters are equal

The unfortunate truth is that many suppliers make the claim of having 'HEPA filters', however, some of these are in reality not actually 'H13 Hospital-grade true HEPA' filtration and upon testing, fail to filter 99.97% at 0.3 microns of particles from the air. As a responsible Australian supplier of quality air purifiers, proof of independent testing is very important to us, as it should be for all customers doing their research.

Ausclimate's Winix air purifier range proudly meets the Australian Standards, European Standards, as well as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Standards and have the proof to back it up.¹

Surpassing Australian HEPA Filter Standards

While Ausclimate's Winix air purifier range meets these industry standards, in some ways our range actually surpasses them. Independent Australian tests¹ performed by Assured Equipment Services showed that at 0.3 microns, our filters actually surpassed the required efficiency level of 99.97%. Then as we get below the 99.97% efficiency rating, the filters can actually capture pollutants much smaller than the required 0.3 micron Standard (i.e. smoke and other tiny particles).

¹ H13 True Hepa filtration standard accredited by Australian independent testing laboratory, Assured Equipment Services, Utah-based Nelson Laboratories and Yonsei University, based in Seoul, South Korea. Test report results available upon request.

Healthy Breathing Month: Air Purifiers

Healthy Breathing Month Air Purifiers

For those of us who suffer from asthma & other breathing issues, it’s a scary thought that the very air that we breathe can be a big part of frequent flare-ups. A top-quality air purifier can be an excellent option to clean the air in our homes and eliminate many of these triggers. We thought that Healthy Breathing Month would be a great time to share this little go-to guide about our WINIX air purifiers especially for those of us who suffer from respiratory issues.


Healthy Breathing Month: Air Purifiers

At it’s most basic, our WINIX air purifiers will actively remove asthma and allergy triggers from your air (airborne dust, mould spores, dust mites and VOCs are a few examples)

WINIX air purifiers will reduce/remove:
  • Airborne viruses and bacteria (filter harmful viruses, bacteria & other contaminants to protect the health of the young & elderly members of your family)
  • Unpleasant odours and VOCs (such as harmful chemical vapours & gases)
  • Pollens and other airborne particles (seasonal pollen & allergens can cause breathing problems, sneezing, itchy skin & sore eyes to sufferers of hay fever and asthma)

Our air purifiers also work great for all of the pet-lovers out there by removing pet hair and dander allergens from the air. They also do a great job of providing clean breathing air for our furry friends.

Our Ultimate 5-Stage WINIX air purifiers also feature air quality smart sensors that will automatically adjust the settings to suit the changing indoor environment
