Fantastic machine for anyone with severe allergies/low immune system
We purchased this purifier almost 2 years ago and my partner has seen a significant reduction in allergy symptoms and the frequency of illness (she would commonly get colds/flus every 2-3 months). It has also made a small improvement in sleep quality.
The machine is easy to clean and replace filters. The plasma wave function seems to work very well and the air quality in the room is noticeably different. The noise level on auto mode is exceptionally low - easy to sleep through. When the fan kicks on high it is louder of course but on auto mode...it usually never needs to kick in that high. Replacement filters are easy enough to source although they are more expensive, the improvement in quality is worth the price. We recently needed a warranty repair which was arranged very easily and handled by AusClimate - cannot say enough good words about them and the Winix Zero+

Absolutely love my air purifiers. Am amazed on how much they capture. My asthma and allergies have reduced since purchasing. Have purchased for a relative to help with their COPD.

Quality Unit with proper support
Self managed unit. Good for larger areas, very quiet but powerful when needed. No Wi-Fi, no apps, no remote even, but that has resulted in a higher quality base unit

Best ever purifier and better than best service
I have terrible asthma. Peter at this company has helped my by selling me outstanding purifiers recommended by asthma foundation and sensitive choice. It has 4 filtration layers and you can’t get anything better. It got me through bushfires, pollens, building dust. We have 5 now in each room. Really good. You can replace filters. I’m so happy and never had better customer service from anyone or any company. Thank you so much what a blessing.

Produced Ozone which may be harmful to your health
While the air filtering is good, the PlasmaWave function, which is on by default, produces Ozone molecules and when you breath these into your lungs they can make you sick. Read the fine print, it says it only produces a little, but some people may be sensitive to it or it may malfunction. Either way, humans were meant to breathe pure ozone at any levels, lookup the research. Ozone is meant to be up in the sky away from humans, but these machines produce it in your own home. I get irritated lungs and short of breath when PlasmaWave is on. Wish I'd bought a plain air filter without this potentially dangerous gimmick, but I didn't do my research well enough.

Best Air purifier
I have been using Winix 5 stage air purifiers over a year. Fantastic air purifier and never let me or my family down with air quality. I have one upstairs and one downstairs and we run it 24/7. It definitely improves air quality and helps allergies a lot too. Super easy to maintain, the running cost is good. The customer service at Aus Climate is always excellent and helpful. Cool air coming out is a bonus, especially on a warm day. Highly recommended.

Excellent Air Purifier
The unit does a fantastic job at purifying the air within a room in a short period of time when on a high setting and alternately over a longer period of time on a low setting (when sleeping at night). Air smells and feels cleaner and visibly reduces dust on surfaces. Unit is quiet when used on a low setting at night. Filters are easy to install. Would recommend to anyone interested in breathing clean air within their house, apartment or office.
Great Quality Air Purifier
I've been really happy with this air purifier. I keep it on low in our living area almost all of the time and you can't hear it running. It's also super easy to clean. Best of all, Peter from Aus Climate is very informative and always happy to answer any questions.

I naively purchased this air purifier without researching the plasmawave technology. From what I understand it’s rather dangerous to your health (produces ozone & hydroxyls). Although it can be turned off, I regret buying it and would have just purchased a plain HEPA fan.
Keeps the office fresh and clean.
We purchased two units for our 24 person office and couldn’t be happier. The air is fresh and clean, no musty smell after being locked up empty throughout COVID and excellent knowing our staff are safe to come and go if necessary, knowing the air has been cleaned.

Definitely worth the buy!
I bought this purifier during the bushfire crisis and it’s been amazing to use so far. We run it most days and every night while as it definitely improves your ability to have a good deep sleep. Its helped my partners allergies a lot too. It’s also super easy to clean I just vacuum it every other weekend. The customer service at Aus Climate is always excellent too!

Great product backed by Great customer service
I purchased several products from Ausclimate Sydney home show about a year ago one was the Ausclimate Winix ZERO+ PRO 5-Stage air purifier , Winix Zero 4-stage air purifier and 10L cool seasons desicccant dehumidifier all great products.
The Zero+ Pro 5 stage is a great air purifier it looks modern and stylish have had no problems it is quite especially in night mode hardly hear it.
I also like how the LED changes colour as the air quality changes . I have the purifier working 24/7 and can tell the difference when air quality outside is not so...good and coming home air quality is good it was a life saver during bad bushfires. I have mine set up below Air conditioning unit so fresh air blows up then air conditioner blows fresh air throughout home. Russell and Allan are great blokes very helpful I sent an email enquiry and Russell called me the next day thats great customer service.

This is for me The top air purifier. I gave it to my daughter when still new as she urgently needed one and bought a Breuer LR 500 instead, also a nice machine, but far too loud at night, even on sleep setting. For us, the Winix ticked all the boxes. No fancy model, no WiFi connectivity but a solid frame, excellent auto function that kicked in when the cat walked past and intuitive interface.
Next time a Winix again !
Exceptional After sales customer services!!
Thank you once again for the outstanding customer services from order to after sales services of the Winix Pro Stage 5 filters! I am very thankful for Peter Higgins, AusClimate’s National BDM, his exceptional product knowledge of Winix which helped to solve a minor problem of one of our filter in lighting fast period of time! AusClimate’s dehumidifier is excellent too! It is very efficient and useful especially for the usage of the laundry room! Much more cost effective than using air dryer and drying clothes so nicely! Thank you again for Peter, and the whole team at AusClimate!

We are very happy with Ausclimate Winix ZERO+ PRO 5-Stage AUS-1250AZPU. Twenty minutes after we turned it on for the first time I thought the air felt 'thinner' to breathe. I didn't immediately say anything to my husband because it might have been me imagining it! He, however, at about the same time, asked me if I noticed anything different about the air in the room as he felt it seemed 'thinner'!! :) We have 3 indoor cats, 2 large dogs, plus other, small, rescue animals and although the house is vacuumed every day there is a lot of dust and sm...all particles in the air. Our home has polished wood flooring, which I love, but I think it might actually kick up the dust more so than carpet. We use the air purifier mostly in the bedroom and living room. We have it on all night on sleep mode and we place a sock over the little light. It goes out to the other room in the morning, on turbo initially. It takes only a very short while to visibly see the air clear up and I quite enjoy seeing the colour changes on the machine itself. I have some very debilitating health conditions and I wouldn't want to be without this air purifier now. It has made a difference in terms of asthma and allergies and as we won't be giving up our pets, this is a good thing. I also like the way it deals with mould spores in that it doesn't kill the mould, leading to the much worse micro-toxins. In fact, this was a major selling point for me. It's really easy to use and the filters are easy to change. The pet filters do need something to help them stay in place, as they tend to come off easily, but that is easily done with a few pieces of sticky tape. If you are on the fence about buying one then I'd say go for it. We tinker with the idea of buying another air purifier at some point, in order to have a dedicated unit in the bedroom as, unfortunately, I need to spend a lot of time in there. I would definitely buy from this company again. They are excellent to deal with and I was recently given beautiful customer service by Russell - probably the best customer service ever!

So pleased we made the decision to purchase our Winix. My husband suffers from asthma and I get hay fever so have really noticed the difference since using our air purifier. We managed to get through the terrible smoke from the months of bushfires, sleeping well with it quietly running in our bedroom. It is no problem to move the unit to the living area during the day so we have clean air where needed.
The machine is very user friendly and cleaning and changing the filters is no problem at all.
Russell and Allan at Ausclimate, provided such great service and gave such great advice, I can highly recommend their business, you won't regret it.

Got this for two asthmatics in the house. Seems to be doing a great job. Got it during heavy smoke due to bushfires and really helped to make the air in the house breathable once again. Great customer service as well. I did buy a discounted floor model so value was very good.

Unit works ok but is heavily overpriced for what it is
This unit is basically a 50 dollar evaporative cooler with a hepa filter (80$) strapped to the front of it. Very hard to see the 750 we paid in value, quite disappointed with the user interface, no readouts of air quality, no digital display very basic just a led light that apparently shows air quality. Theunit is of low quality I found quite flimsy where you insert the filters could see it breaking within a year. nAny other unit with a hepa filter would beat this for value. Regretful purchase

Excellent Build Quality, Very Quiet in Sleep Mode
I have only just started using this item for myself and my kids. Build Quality is Excellent and it runs very quietly at night during sleep mode - it is so quiet in sleep mode that I can't even hear it at night. My kids and I have noticed a difference in the morning, we feel more refreshed and my kids blocked nose is cleared. The unit is well built, but a little heavy to move around, if they release a new model maybe it could have castor wheels for ease of movement. The unit is a bit pricey, I think $400-$450 would be a fairer price, not $595! Overall, I am very happy with this unit's performance so far, and can definitely feel the difference.

Excellent purifier with a few things to be aware of(12 month update included)
Winix zero is an excellent purifier and does exactly what it says to do.
Air is noticeably fresher and cleaner and great at filtering out bushfire smoke just set to auto and forget
Uses about 70 watts on turbo so pretty good
Price price price.Australians get ripped off in a big way as this model is identical to the U.S Winix HR900, Aussie price between $600_$750 U.S price $220 U.S so like tad over 300 AUD so more than twice the price in AUD for same model which is outrageous.
They say the pro is unique to Australian market which is...

Hi everyone, does this have an ioniser as I can’t see any reference to it but I am reading from a phone without glasses. Cheers Stephanie
We had a similar question about this some time ago.
Besides our Winix air purifiers having high quality HEPA and Carbon filters, they also use PlasmaWave technology which is quite differant to traditional ionisers found on the market.
Below is a more detailed explaination that we posted a little while ago about this technology.
I hope this helps, however if you require further information please don't hesitate to contact Ausclimate on 1800 122100
"This technology has been tested and certified by various Australian and international testing agencies/universities to effectively and safely remove harmful airborne pollutants such as bacteria and viruses. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be confused with 'ionizer technology' (or ‘negative ion air purifiers’) that can produce high levels of ozone. Negative ion air purifiers do not actually eliminate air pollutants. Instead, negative ions force contaminant particles to group together so they are weighed down onto the surface of furniture and floors. Everyday activities such as walking or vacuuming can then reintroduce these contaminants by making them airborne once again. PlasmaWave is far superior whereby it produces both negative and positive ions at the same time, unlike ionizers that only produce negative ions. These ions from Plasmawave technology latch onto pollutant particles and alter the chemical structure. As a result, they’re able to safely eliminate the pollutant particles.
Ozone emission safety is very important to us. In fact, we have confirmed that the ozone levels produced by Plasmawave technology are so low that it is virtually immeasurable. In tests carried out by an independent laboratory, PlasmaWave produced only 3 ppb (parts per billion) - which is substantially lower than the allowable level of 50 ppb as set by the USA's FDA. All Winix products are certified by the California Air Resource Board to ensure Ozone emissions are well below the air cleaner limit of 50 ppb ozone emission limit. Winix' Plasmawave® Technology also meets the California Air Resource Board’s AB 2276 standard, which is the most rigorous American certification benchmark for indoor air cleaning ozone-emissions. To attain compliance, air cleaning devices must be tested for electrical safety and have ozone emission ratings below the 0.05 parts per million limit.
And further to this, the PlasmaWave function can still be turned off if you choose."
Fair question Stephan.
Winix is 100% CARB compliant which is very very important as CARB have the strictest Ozone testing in the world so even more strict than the U.S government,EU, and even Australia.
Carb is so strict that many many air purifiers are banned in California (CARB) But yet can be bought and sold throughout the world including Australia; EU,and most of U.S
