Q: What is the replacement filter type for the Winix 5500-2? I seen Filter T, C, B, and U listed in the serach but nothing is saying it fits in the Winix 5500-2. Also the description for Winix 5500-2 dose not say which filter type fits in it.

submitted by Beyond - 3 years ago
  • A: For Winix 5500-2, use #116130 Filter H (white HEPA filter, replace annualy) and #1712-0094-00 Filter U ("pet filter" that catches bigger stuff, replace monthly).

    submitted byAnna - 2 years ago
  • A: Hello, the replacement filter needed for the Winix 5500-2 is the Winix Replacement Filter H (Model 116130). We are working with Target to make the filter available.

Q: How often do the 3 filters actually need to be replaced? The answers here are vague and "when the light turns on" isn't an answer. Can the sleep mode be turned off? I want it to run at night.

submitted by JayR - 8 months ago
  • A: Hello J, we recommend cleaning the pre filter every 2 weeks and changing the carbon and true HEPA filters every 12 months. The reason the “change filter” indicator is mentioned, as it is based on actual usage of the unit. If the unit runs at a higher fan speed, it may need to be changed sooner. However if ran at a lower fan speed, it will last longer. The sleep mode will occur when used in the auto mode.

Purchasing this air purifier was at my last resort. I searched for the best air purifiers and this one come up in my search. I was sold on not replacing the filters. I placed it in my living room and set it on automatic. All I can say is, that is the dust is almost non-existent. I haven't had to dust multiple times a day. It's amazing and it's worth the price.

Well made, easy to maintain, easy on the eyes in the living room. I vacuum all 3 filters weekly. (We get lots of dust living near major hwy.) Just purchased 2nd unit for the bedroom end of the house.

This air purifier saved the day during the sale of my home. I just brought home a pet a week before I knew I was going to put my home on the market. It stayed continuously running, best of all is the energy efficiency. I recommend this product to anyone who is occupying their home while up for sale.

Best air purifier I've ever owned. Love the Auto feature which controls fan speed base on air quality & powers on/off based on lighting in the room. Also love that the filters are washable!(All filters except the Hepa filter which are never washable.)

Before purchasing this, i did my usual process of reading everything possible about different models. This one seemed to have the most features. I wasn't expecting it to make quite the change that it did. I was used to waking up with a runny nose and watery eyes. This purifier has made that so much better.

Our house has 2 of these. One is over 6 years old and the other is over 3 years old. Both work amazing! You can tell by how much is on the filters when cleaned. These are easy to use and can detect current air quality, which is indicated by a colored light coded system. These are easy to clean and the filters are affordable. I highly recommend this air purifiers, you won't be disappointed.

Which Winix series works best

I brought this air purifier for my son because he suffers from asthma and seasonal allergies and he also has his dog and his dog stays with him in his bedroom. I was hoping that after a couple of days, the air purifier would have been able to eliminate the stale odor, teenage odor, plus dog odor. I honestly do not know if it just going to take longer to remove all odors, if it will take more than a couple of weeks, or if I just have to continue running on auto or run it on a different setting. Or it just might be that I select the wrong Winix series.

I was going to return the unit because I couldn't find a place to put it. My husband found a place where it wouldn't be near electronics. It's working great. It's amazingly quiet and I can breathe and feel the difference in our household air.

the carbon filter has a lot of empty spots, it is loosely packed with visable holes so therefore the hepa filter gets dirty fast. not happy at all

Bought this 2 or 3 years ago. It’s been on the whole time. Absolutely no issues. It’s literally the best filter I have owned and drowns out noise when I need it to. When I want quiet the night setting allows you to heaf nothing. Easy to clean. Filters are freaking expensive but they work. My sleep has improved, my allergies dont bother me in my bedroom anymore. The sensor is accurate based on colour (yup my bf farted into it ans it changed haha). The night light changes based on movement so when I’m walking to the bathroom I’m not stumbling anymore.
