A clean and fresh indoor air will not only help you stay healthy but it will also make you feel ultra comfortable and relaxed at all times, especially if you suffer from allergies or asthma. Therefore, what you need to do is to use an air purifier, and the Winix WAC9500 Ultimate Pet would be an excellent choice for you to go with. This device indeed is more expensive than others, but even so, it is a strongly recommended product due to its performance. All the information you need about this unit can be found in this review.
If you want to have a clean indoor air at all times, then you should opt for an air cleaner just like the one presented in this review. This is an innovative device that uses a 5-stage filtration in order to almost completely eliminate the hair, dander, and odor of your pet so that you can live in a very clean, fresh, and comfortable indoor environment. It is the perfect unit for those who own a dog or suffer from allergies or asthma. In terms of CADR, the higher the numbers are, the faster the unit will actually clean the indoor air, which is exactly what this cleaner does. It has the following CADR numbers: pollen 194, dust 182, and tobacco smoke 183. This wonderful model is specifically designed for rooms of up to 284 square feet. You should not worry about the noise because this device operates quietly enough so that you can continue with your daily tasks without being disturbed, the noise level being 26 dB. When it comes to energy consumption, you will be pleased to know that this unit consumes approximately 6 watts when it’s set on the lowest setting. Also, it consumes only 70 watts when you set it on the highest speed setting. This makes it one of the most energy-efficient products of this kind on the market, this being the reason why it’s Energy Star certified.

The unit is suitable for a large bedroom or for a family room. What’s so great about this unit in terms of performance is the fact that it combines the best filtering and technologies in order to deliver extremely clean and fresh air. The device comes equipped with the true HEPA filtration, an advanced odor control carbon filtration, a hair collecting pre-filter, and the Winix’s PlasmaWave technology. All these filtration technologies work together in order to offer superior control of pet and other household odors and allergens. The true HEPA filtration is very efficient as it can actually capture up to 99.99% of harmful airborne pollutants, pet dander, and allergens as small as 0.3 microns. The washable advanced odor control carbon filter can capture unbearable pet odors as well as smoke, cooking, and other household odors. Another excellent thing about this unit is that it has, as mentioned earlier, a washable pre-filter that highly extends the life of the filter by capturing larger airborne particles and pet hair as well. What the innovative PlasmaWave technology actually does is to attack pollutants at a molecular level, and the whole process will help neutralize bacteria, viruses, odors, and gasses that lurk in the air. All in all, with the help of these innovative filtration stages you will surely breathe a very clean and fresh indoor air at all times, which will surely help you stay healthy and improve the quality of your sleep. Also, know that this is an Energy Star-certified unit that complies with the federal ozone emissions limit.
When it comes to the features of this air cleaner we can say that it comes equipped with smart sensors with auto-mode. The dust, odor and light sensors will automatically adjust the device settings in order to efficiently meet the needs of your indoor environment. Thanks to the smart sensors, the unit will monitor the air around it, offering a “set and forget” convenience. If the cleaner will actually sense the quality change, it will automatically adjust its speed in order to create a very clean and fresh indoor air. The automatic dim feature senses the ambient of the light in the room and then it allows the device to display a normal bright LED or a dimmed LED. Therefore, due to this feature, you can actually use the cleaner in your bedroom without having your sleep disturbed by the light. Another excellent thing about this cleaner is that the control panel will display a LED alert until the filter is changed. The change filter alert is, without a doubt, very useful. On average, the all-in-one filter cassette must be replaced annually. There is also a timer setting feature for 1, 4, or 8 hours. Unfortunately, a standby mode is not available. In terms of energy saving features, we are glad to tell you that this product is highly energy efficient, consuming only 6 watts on the lowest speed setting, and being Energy Star certified for its low energy consumption.
The design of the unit is an attractive one, with an elegant white and metallic silver finish. You can control the unit in 2 ways, by using the digital control panel or the convenient remote control. You can choose between 4 speed levels, more precisely low, medium, high, and turbo. This air cleaner measures 16.5 x 8.9 x 21.9 inches, and it weighs not more and not less than 24.3 pounds. Unfortunately, this device doesn’t have rolling casters like other units have that help when it comes to transportation, but it is still very easy to move from a room to another due to the fact that it is not very heavy.
Warranty and support
