Design

It’s really well-fitting and finished. Filter doors with magnetic hinges, a beautiful matte finish, functionality, and castors are greatly appreciated. It’s easy to use the capacitive touch controls. Soft-touch buttons and intuitive indicator lights are among its characteristics. One of the four air quality levels is indicated via the panel’s color-coded LEDs. There are four levels: Fair (Yellow), Good (Green), Excellent (Blue), and Poor (Red).

Filter

There is a 4-stage filtration system included with the Winix XLC air purifier. Washable Fine Mesh Pre-Filter is the first line of defense against the biggest airborne particles encountered indoors. The second level is a washable ACO carbon filter that lessens smoking, pet odors, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It also contributes to extending the life of True HEPA Filters. 99.97%* of airborne allergens, including as pollen, dust, smoke, and pet dander as small as 0.3 microns, are captured by the Winix True HEPA filter.

The usage of Winix’s PlasmaWave® Technology could lessen the amount of bacteria and viruses that are airborne. The device’s integrated Smart Sensors measure and track the air quality in your surroundings and provide the results in a visual format.

Coverage

Maintaining air quality in a 620 square foot space is possible with the Winix XLC air purifier. Up to 3,000 square feet can be cleaned in an hour by it (1,500 square feet in 30 minutes, 1,000 square feet in 20 minutes, and 750 square feet in 15 minutes).

Fan speed

There are just three speeds and no auto mode on the Blueair 121. This Winix features four fan settings in addition to a very responsive auto mode. An extra bonus option is an ultra-low speed sleep mode that is managed by an ambient light sensor.

Sleep mode

The machine automatically switches to Sleep Mode when the room gets dark, ensuring silent, energy-efficient operation all the time. In the presence of light, it reverts to Auto Mode.

Noise

In active mode, it generates 54 dB, while at its slowest speed (26.5 dB), it is almost silent.

Apps

Although the app is great, a dedicated 2.4 GHz WiFi network name is needed. Furthermore, local control is not possible; only Winix servers may be used to control it. It cannot be controlled by Hubitat, HomeKit, Home Assistant, or Alexa.

Winix XLC air purifier alternative

When it comes to air pollution particulates, the Winix 5500-2 excels: after just 30 minutes on high, it was able to collect up to 99.9% of the smoke in our test room. Because of its manual display-shutoff option, smaller visual footprint, and reduced energy usage, we choose the Coway Airmega AP-1512HH Mighty. While they don’t have all of the capabilities of the 5500-2, the comparable 5300-2 and C535 (available only at Winix and Walmart) work just as well and might even be less expensive. Not surprisingly, considering that the only notable distinctions between the AM80 and Wi-Fi-enabled AM90 are their appearances, we’ve had similarly positive outcomes with every other Winix we’ve tried.
