Helps with night sinus issues
Bought this because of smoke issues from burn offs so am hoping this helps with next spate because they now give me chest infections. Seems to be helping with the nighttime sinus congestion in the meantime. Sadly though it doesn’t seem to be too effective on the fluffy bedroom dust that I think my sheets are shedding, linen may have drawbacks along with positives. It may be that I have to have it running longer on higher setting. It is marvellously quiet in sleep mode.
Breathe deeply, beautiful fresh clean air!
My daughter has a lung condition so we bought a Winex 5 stage air purifier for her bedroom. I found myself breathing deeply when I would pass her room, the air was so fresh just like being outside. Within a couple of months I bought another one for our lounge/dining/kitchen and then a third for the office. A friend came over and then bought 2 for her house. My eldest daughter will often “borrow” one for her bedroom. I would love to get one permanently for each bedroom as I find it clears my post nasal drip and the kids sleep better. I cant recommend these air purifiers enough or Russell for his help and advice.

Read the reviews here and decided to get one for our new home, still smell of paint. I purchased it online at Ausclimate.com, and emailed them to asked for a quicker delivery. They did it! I receive mine within 1.5days. (Regional Victoria) Very grateful as the paint fumes is making me extremely uncomfortable and having to live with it over the weekend would have been torturous. Will be keeping this on for awhile! Thank you!!

Works brilliantly. Had no idea how much we needed it!
Following cancer and the removal of part of her sinuses, my mum experienced constant infections in her nose/sinus area and was constantly coughing. I purchased this in the hope it would make a difference but I was very skeptical. However, my mum has never breathed better, no longer coughs and has far fewer infections. We leave it on all the time in the lounge beside her usual chair. On the rare occasions it has been turned off by accident, we notice because mum starts coughing. It proves how well it works. I want to buy another 1 or 2 for other rooms, but need to wait a bit as they are pricey (but worth it!).

Makes a Real Difference to house odours
We have been using this air purifier for about 12 months, we are very impressed by the fact that as soon as you walk into the house, that if it has been turned off you can smell all sorts of odours, turning the machine on eliminates them all within a few minutes. The kids are breathing easier and we would never go back to not having one in the house.
Never breathed better
I struggle with hayfever & asthma & during hayfever time (spring) it also affects my breathing. Not anymore, the Winix AUS-9500 has made a significantly positive impact on my breathing & quality of life. What a joy to breathe properly & sleep all night. I cannot recommend this product highly enough. Also, the service from Ausclimate is exceptional.

Changed our lives
We have a 9 month old with hay fever and our bedrooms have carpet! As we live in Melbourne I've been concerned about the asthma thunderstorms and so I purchased this purifier in the hope that it would help with both his hay fever and the potential risks of asthma! From the very first night we put the purifier in our sons room we noticed a dramatic change in his sleep! He would often wake up through the night coughing or just crying for cuddle but he suddenly begun sleeping through the night with ease! I called the company directly with question...s and was really pleased with the time Russel took to answer all my questions and explain things to me in a way I could understand! My husband and i are over the moon with our purchase how it has changed our routine as a family! It has been worth every cent and so we have just purchased a second unit for downstairs! Huge thumbs up from us!

I cannot speak highly enough of this air purifier. I live between a major highway catering to road-trains carrying cattle and grain which cause a lot of dust and a railway with coal trains. This purifier does an excellent job of clearing the air of rubbish. We sleep better and wake refreshed whereas the sleep before was troubled and snoring was a huge factor. The company was a pleasure to deal with and Russell from Qld was outstanding with his advice and service. In fact, the first one did such a fine job that I immediately bought another two!
We purchased this air purifier for our 19 year old son with great skepticism. In all honesty we bought it expecting to return it. When we bought it our son was becoming really desperate to find any type of solution to help him.
Our son has suffered from dust, cat and grass allergies from a very young age and previously received a two year course of desensitising needles which did help him, but only for a few years when the symptoms returned. No antihistamine medications work for him. His allergies would cause him to wake up sneezing, red e...yed, tired and totally blocked up. As a uni student, and previously at school this meant he had many days where he was unable to attend because he just felt miserable and unwell. In July 2016 we purchased the Winix Ultimate 5 Stage machine for our son's bedroom. This machine has literally changed his life - I can hardly believe it myself. From day one he woke up feeling well. He feels 'normal' and since sleeping with this machine in his room, hasn't needed to stay home from uni once because of his allergies. His bedroom window is kept closed, his door is closed, he has a hard floor (no carpet) and we aim to remember to wash his bed sheets once a week. Very interestingly, the one night that he left his window open by mistake, he had allergies the next morning as I don't believe the unit can work well in that situation. His room is around 3m x 3m so it's not a big room, so I don't know how well it would work in a larger room. This machine actually works. It's brilliant and we love it :)

Suffer from Asthma, Hay fever, Chemical induced Migraines or headaches? Breathe easy!
If you want to buy an air purifier look no further than “Winix”. It is so well built, you will be surprised – the best way I can describe it is to say “it is not a toy, it is not pretend, and it is a real air purifier”. We live near Rutherglen (NE Vic) and my wife suffers from Asthma and hay fever and I suffer from chronic migraines (have to stay away from chemicals) which is the main reason I purchased the Ultimate 5 stage WAC9500 (it gets the chemicals out of the air you’re breathing).
Does it help? YES! My wife’s hay fever has been nearly n...
Helped me a ton. Minor issues though.
I've had asthma right from my childhood and so having an air purifier at home was compulsory. I was previously using the Honeywell 50250-s model and it suddenly broke down. So, I had to go online and started hunting for a 'good enough purifier' to replace my broken one. I found one particular review http://www.pureairhub.com/winix-wac9500-review/ which helped me choose this one.
First looks, seemed to be bulky and old fashioned. But, once I started using it I really changed my mind. It was definitely better than the previous Honeywell model ...that I was using. I was also skeptical about the ozone gas emission which is much of a concern with household products. I went ahead and checked on CARB website and found that this Winix model complies with the ozone limitations. It's been close to a month since I started using it and its good so far. Will update my review in the next few months.
Great way to keep the air fresh and cleaner in your home
We are a household that lives in quite an old style house and we have a pet that wee keep indoors overnight every night. I am also a very heavy snorer. Initially I purchased the WAC9500 to control any odours that may arise from having our pet inside. Since using the unit, we have not only controlled the pet odour but the whole house smells far fresher than prior to our purchase.
Furthermore, I have specifically been running the purifier in my bedroom overnight to reduce the dust in the air and have found that, reported by my children, that my ...
Very pleased with this unit!
I am a Podiatrist, practising in an environment where airborne particles of all kinds are a significant concern. The Winix Ultimate is quiet, inexpensive to run, looks good, and is small yet effective in creating a cleaner, healthier environment for me and my patients. I'm very happy I have one.
A breath of fresh air!
I own a hair salon & could see the benefit of having an air purifier. Breathing in sprays & pollutants, day in day out, can't be good for me, or my clients.
I've had the 9500 for a month now & we can all definitely feel the difference in the salon.
No more sprays lingering in the air! And it's so quiet. I only wish they'd been around years ago.
Thankyou. I couldn't be happier.
Top shelf air cleaner/purifier for allergies, asthma etc
My parents have had an older model running in their home for over 7 years and they have been very happy with the unit. After extensive research, I chose the Winix WAC9500 over my two existing Coway AP-1008CH units, for my toddler son's bedroom.
In winter, it's the coldest and dampest room and in summer, the warmest. The Winix was selected because of its extra feature over the Coway product - generation of positive and negative ions which combine with water vapour to neutralise bacteria, odours and vapours. Combined with a separate dehumidif...ier in my son's bedroom, the musty smell and mould spots on the windows have disappeared. Overall, this has been a good purchase which we expect to last a long time; judging by my parents' experience.

Really good, loads of features
I bought this to help relieve girlfriend's allergies, she has a very sensitive nose and it has helped a lot. I keep it on all the time in the bedroom with the door shut and can feel the fresh air when I enter the room at night. Finding one of these in Australia is not easy though (like a lot of good stuff). Ausclimate were the only resellers I could find, but fortunately they were very helpful and my unit arrived within a couple of days.
I did a lot of research before making the investment into an air purifier (I'd rather spend a bit more and...

Bought 1 it was so good I bought 2 more!
I recently purchased the Winix Ultimate 5 stage air purifier for my son who is asthmatic. He is really happy with it and his wife says he sleeps so much better. I have since brought 2 more for my other children who suffer from asthma and allergies and they have all noticed a big improvement in sleep quality and general freshness in their homes. Allan and Chris from Ausclimate were fantastic helping us to get the right units to suit us and later on when we had questions about using them they were always really happy and helpful to talk to and nothing was a problem to them.
Great for my daughters allergies!
I'm so impressed with my Winix air purifier. My daughter has allergies that make her sneeze constantly first thing in the morning. I'd tried various things to help without much success until a friend recommended I should call Ausclimate about their air purifiers. I was a little skeptical at first because I knew nothing about air purifiers. So I did my research and read various reviews which gave me a lot more confidence. I'm so thankful I called. The sales guy was fantastic to deal with, he really knew what he was talking about and didn't seem ...to mind my long list of questions. I've been using my air purifier in my daughter's bedroom for over 2 months now and what a difference it has made. Her sneezing virtually stopped immediately. It was amazing! Besides how well it worked there's a lot I like about the Winix Ultimate Air Purifier. What stood out for me was how easy it is to use. It has a remote control that I just set on auto, it's really quiet and even the lights dim automatically when the bedroom lights turn off. I'm so thankful for my friend recommending Ausclimate; they were wonderful to deal with but more importantly what a brilliant product they have. Hopefully, by writing this review I can help others who suffer from allergies like my daughter.
I manage the Royal Avenue Tennis Centre in Sandringham, Victoria, since using the Air Purifier we ha
We bought the Winix air purifier to stop the smells in the sales area of our Tennis Centre.
Joanne from the Ausclimate website told me everything about the Winix air purifiers and we settled on the 5 stage WAC9500 model.
We liked the extra features of having 5 stages of cleaning, and were told the carbon filter is the main stage for getting rid of the smells.
Great results, really works well and NO MORE SMELLS – just clean air.
We also liked the idea that our staff have extra protection from viruses and bacteria.
We live on the premises, so it’s good for the bedroom too.
We would definitely recommend this product, it is absolutely fantastic.
Air Purifer Has Improved My Life - Fantastic To See A Product That Does What It Says
I am a chronic sufferer of hay fever and sinus and for almost 12 years I have struggled with sleep problems. My sleep problems have caused ongoing health and life problems, so much so that I have even undergone two sleep studies in hospital and my doctor has prescribed various sleeping pills (that I decline).
So when we stumbled upon Joanne & Russell of Ausclimate at the Brisbane Home Show, I was pretty skeptical that any air purifier would make much of a difference to me.
I am so pleased to say that I was wrong. From the first night I ...noticed that whilst I still woke often, my sleep was a lot deeper and I actually woke up with a clear head – not snuffly and snotty and as an added bonus it seems to have cured my husbands snoring. We have had our air purifier for around 3 months now and I am thrilled to say that my sleep has improved to the point that some nights I am getting around 5 hours uninterrupted. That might not seem a lot to most but to me it’s absolute bliss. I have even noticed an improvement in my hayfever and sinus. I know it is the purifier that has made all the difference as I have frequently woken up fine and when I open up the doors and windows to the outside world I start to sneeze.
Questions & Answers
Would like to know if the Ultimate 5 Stage AUS-9500 will become available anytime soon.
I am looking for a purifier for my wife who has Bronchiectasis and it does appear that the Winix Zero 4 Stage and the Zero+ Pro 5 Stage would probably be better?
Also, above was a special 'Boxing Day' offer with $50 Cashback E-Gift Card with every Air Purifier purchase & $100 on Multi-Buys, is this still available and for how long?

If you are near a main city (especially Brisbane) has your wofe done the Lung Rehab course? I completed it with several people with your wife's issue and ALL benefitted and the therapy is ongoing after the 8 week course. Speak with Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital Lung Rehab ask for Kermeen the Physiotherapist and person in charge - she could perhaps head your wife to somewhere close to you. But re the Winix - it ihas been a life saver for me especially in the fires. Look out on Gumtree I got all mine there as (unfortunately) people don't temd to buy these early. but they are worth their weight in gold for anyone with breathing issues.
We have no definate date for when we are getting another shipment of the Winix Ultimate 5 Stage.
However we have a large volume of shipments arriving over the next few weeks of both the Winix Zero models. The Zero and Zero+ Pro are proven air purifiers with the same high quality filters as the Winix Ultimate.
We currently are taking pre-orders for both Zero models which include the $50 cashback offer.

Does this unit have a carbon filter for smoke from bushfires
The quick run down is below and yes it does have a carbon filter and it can manage smoke to a very large degree the details follow, but I have been in the thick of Qld smoke and have severe lung issues and had no problems breathing with the filter. I also use
Innovair and it also has a carbon filter and is very high quality (but more expensive filters).

Great answer by AFM
Just to add a couple of points.
The best carbon filter for this is 'Activated' carbon, which our models have. Its is much more absorbant for odours and importantly removes harmful chemical vapors.
And whilst the Winix Ultimate 5 Stage has been very popular, the later models such as the Winix Zero 4 Stage and the Winix Zero+ Pro, as mentioned by AFM have proven to be excellent for filtering out smoke.
