"With the harsh winter weather this year decided not to get just a humidifier but also an air washer as I was told they run cleaner. I couldn't believe how quiet this Winix FresHome air washer is and the convenience of the top fill so I didn't have to carry it filled with water made this it so much ..."

Description of Winix AW600 Air Washer
The Winix AW600 Air Washer quietly humidifies while simultaneously removing allergens and large particulate from your air. This AW600 air washer utilizes evaporative fan-based humidification to improve the breathability of the air. Dry air is drawn across internal collection discs which catch allergens and pollutants. The disks are continually rinsed clean in a bath of water where the impurities become trapped and removed; thus allowing only clean water to return to the environment and maintain a health, beneficial humidity level. Just like Winix’s air purifiers, the AW600 air washer features Winix’s PlasmaWave Technology and HEPA air filtration that attacks remaining pollutants at the molecular level to neutralize viruses and bacteria. This air washer and humidifier is an excellent choice for use during flu season. The Winix AW600 Air Washer will humidify spaces up to 600 square feet.

The Winix AW600 Air Washer's fan draws dry air across the internal collection discs which are continually rinsed in a bath of water. Airborne impurities stick to the rotating collection discs and then washed off and trapped in the water basin. Water is evaporated back into the room leaving the impurities behind. The AW600 air washer distributes up to 3.17 gallons per day of humidification to add comfort to the dry air in your home.
Your Winix AW600 Air Washer should be cleaned every two weeks or as needed. Simply rinse out the water basin and gently clean the collections discs with soap, a sponge and warm water. Additionally, discs can be safely and conveniently washed in the dishwasher.

The Winix AW600 Air Washer with HEPA/carbon filtration is similar to other air washers available but Winix has added many practical features that most buyers will appreciate. Our product testers all raved about the silent operation of the AW600 air washer's impeller technology, which is rated at 44 dB on its highest speed (but was barely detectable). The digital controls with LED screen are exceptionally easy to understand and adjust to your desired setting. Cleaning the AW600 air washer is also simplified thanks to Winix's CleanCel anti-microbial coating that does a terrific job of preventing that slimy organic growth both in the basin as well as on the rotating disks. Another proprietary feature to Winix is the PlasmaWave Technology which safely neutralize viruses, bacteria, chemical vapors, odors, and gases in the air before they even enter the air washer. All in all, there are enough features in the AW600 air washer to create a comfortable, healthy environment all winter long or year-round for those drier climates.
