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
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 high 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 u...
Have been very pleased with my Winix ZERO+PRO air purifier. I now sleep much better.
Greatly appreciated Russell's prompt action in sourcing and dispatching my air purifier. I have chronic lung problems and have felt a great deal of improvement in ease of breathing. The machine appears to be very well made, operates really quietly on the low setting and reasonably quietly on medium setting. I find the machine easy to care for and filters appear to be simple to replace.

A step down.
I liked my Winix AUS-9500 so much, I decided to buy another one. Initially disappointed to find the AUS-9500 had been superseded by the Zero+ I bought one anyway because of the predominantly positive reviews right here on ieatwords.
The Zero+ is more minimalistic. The remote control has been done away with and the exterior is... purposeful.
When I fired her up, a pleasantly muted blue bar of light transformed the stark front facade. As the air quality fluctuated the colour of the light and fan speed changed in sympathy. At first, when the a...

Great air purifier combined with awesome customer service!
I purchased a Zero 5 model, due to the heavy smoke from the bushfires. The air purifiers at the local stores had all sold out, but with the very generous help by Scott from Ausclimate was able to source one, and had it delivered very promptly! I was very impressed with the effort and customer service I received from the very first phonecall.
Setup was quite easy, and I had it work it working away in a few mins. The sound is quite minimal, unless very heavy pollutants enter the house, as it needs to work harder to filter the air (but that is t...o be expected). The purifier works in a large area, so that helped in making my decision to purchase. I am very pleased with the product I purchase, and will gladly by again should I want future purifiers in other areas of the house.

Perfect personal Service
All purifiers seemed to be sold out but with personal attention provided by Ausclimate staff one was discovered and delivered. I was very impressed with the attention give across the board by the different staff members who I caused to become involved. The unit is in operation now and we can feel the benefit.

Absolutely the best service ever and product is very effective.
Ausclimate provide amazing service. The purifier is perfect for our home, dealing with smoke from all the fires. Our house smelled badly of smoke and had difficulties breathing, where now we can start to breathe much better
outstanding air particle reduction
Purchased two Zero+Pro 5s a couple of months ago, after considering the range of products on the market. We made this double purchase after contacting the sales office and getting helpful advice about unit effectiveness. We have one downstairs, and one upstairs immediately under the Air conditioner air filter intake. This enables the winix's purified air to be sucked straight into the air conditioner intake and distributed around the house.
The change in air quality is quite noticeable, much appreciated by family members with asthma. The...ability of the units to filter out the Sydney bushfire smoke in the last several weeks is remarkable. The air quality monitor is sobering - even when we couldn't detect smoke or poor air ourselves, the monitor would indicate poor air first thing in the morning or when a window/door was opened. On low and sleep settings, no discernible noise, and only marginally noticeable on the medium setting, High is noticeable but ok as long as you are not right on top of it, turbo about the same as a fan on full blast. Expensive, but no more than so than rival units. Can you put a price on good air quality though? Thoroughly recommended.

I can breathe ...
Now I have the WINIX zero 4 and 5. Both easy to clean. I simply diarise the next clean. Easy to relocate around the house if needed. Fabulous value for money. The Zero 5 has hepa, carbon, pest dander, dust filters. Very responsive to air quality changes. Quiet. We leave both units on 24 hours on automatic. The difference between inside and outside air is tangible. These units mean I don't need to wear a face mask when I'm at home. Sydney air is so dangerous for people with pre-existing lung conditions (me) that I recommend the units very highly.... Fabulous service from Russell, Allan & Peter. Quick delivery. I realised this morning that I took clean air for granted in Sydney. Maybe we have another 2 months of sad catastrophe in our bushland areas this time. The WINIX is a must have!

Totally worth it !
In the current Sydney smoke haze, 2 of these purifiers are creating a clean air retreat through our entire house. The air quality monitor is surprisingly sensitive and detects changes when an outside door is opened only briefly 2 rooms away. Allergy problems have been noticeably reduced . The machine is lightweight enough to move from room to room with ease. Even on the regular settings it is relatively quiet, but on the sleep setting, operation is barely noticeable. It appears to be easy to clean and easy to change filters when necess...ary. Information and customer service provided by Ausclimate was very helpful and efficient. My only suggested improvement might be a slightly longer power chord. We are recommending the Zero plus 5 stage to friends and family.
Keeping the smoke out!
We are so pleased we chose this air purifier. It has helped generally and we have been surprised that we can keep it on at night time in the bedroom without it disturbing us. On nights when it hasnt been on I wake up with allergy symptoms but when it stays on I am fine. Right now though, with bush fire smoke blanketing Sydney we have been so pleased that it is keeping our indoor air so much cleaner than outside. Very happy with this product.
I bought two units from Ausclimate at a bundle purchase offer with $100 cash credit too! Been using them for few weeks, I noticed the air filter changed to red colour (high pollution) when the stove is on, candle is lighted, and even my dishwasher and wifi is on plus many more little activities which will cause the filter to filter out the air into different strength/level. I am not too sure if it even eliminates EMF but it is very interesting to see the filter changing its speed differently according to their sensor when electronics are be...ing used. I also love the quietness (the sleep mode is so nice) and the clean air in my home. I was suffered from the released of VOC (rendering) which has caused me so much discomfort to my eyes and giving me headache and hence I purchased these filters. Thankfully, with these two filters are on, my autoimmune response symptoms are all gone and my eyes are feeling normal again. My husband also finds it helps him to improve his condition of asthmatic problem in the morning. They do improve the quality of sleep at night! My dog and cat also love to lay down next to the units for the breeze too! I have Honeywell filter before and I trust this Winix, the number one brand in Korea, has done its proud and definitely worth its price tag. Thanks again to Ausclimate for its fast delivery and great customer services by Pauline and Anne.

Can't believe how much stuff it grabs!
We have had our WinxZero+ Pro 5 working in our chiropractic office for a few months and thought that we should change the filter... We couldn't believe how much dust and dirt and muck was pulled from the air!
Purchased in July 2020 at at a trade show.
Love my Winix Pro 5!
My son and self are asthma and allergy sufferers and after sufficient research, I decided to purchase the Winix Pro 5 air purifier for our home. I use it mainly in our communal living areas and the machine is quiet and does a great job of purifying the air. It kicks in automatically to a higher mode when needed such as when cooking, vacuuming, cleaning and when the cat passes by. I was amazed by the amount of pet dander and dust collected on the pet filter which is changed monthly. I would recommend this product to those with allergies, asthma, pets or anyone looking to improve the air quality in their home.

Absolutely love it.
Bought it last week through appliances online. Loving it. My breathing has improved quite a bit. Had some breathing and allergy issues as we recently moved to the city. Although don’t know why the colour of the air quality indicator sometimes changes to a lower quality despite it being switched on and no outdoor windows/door being opened.
My wife and daughter are allergy suffers.
After purchasing this product, it has definitely helped with their breathing.
And we are going through renovations at the moment.
Whisper quiet. It just sits in the corner and does it's work.
Also great for removing cooking odours

Like breathing pure oxygen
I purchased my Ausclimate air purifier 2 months ago, and while the decision to purchase one took me months of research, and scepticism that it would help my hayfever and my wife’s asthma, I bit the bullet and spent way more than I planned too on an air purifier.
Well 2 months later my wife and I are delighted with the performance of the unit.
We have our unit in our 19 square metre bedroom, which is over kill for the unit as it does up to 50 square metres. The in built sensor shuts the unit into silent mode at night, and only works hard during ...

Purifies the air but...
It never cycled through the air quality signals of red, amber and blue. It stayed on red the whole time which signals low quality air. Even when set in a small closed room (14m2) over many hours the red light stayed on. Also as my house is darker in winter, the machine automatically switched to night mode all the time (reduced air flow). This meant having to set the speed which is fine but not economical long term. The machine cleans the air very well (I'm allergic to dust and my nose stopped running) and did a good job of taking general household smells out but I returned it as the features did not seem to work. Perhaps the next model will be fine tuned. Bought from Costco for $450.
Extremely happy with the product.
After discussing my needs with Scott I decided to purchase the Winix ZERO+ PRO5-stage. I was very sick with allergies and asthma. The first night I used the PRO 5 I had immediate relief. I live in Alice Springs where the find dust is everywhere and causes a dry cough or sneezing. This machine has definitely helped me get a better nights sleep. (Tip: I turn it on after vacuuming the carpet in my bedroom. It clears any stirred up dust) My husband, who is not effected by allergies, was apprehensive about getting a "noisy machine" that would distu...rb his sleep. After the first night's use he said that his sinuses felt the best ever and he never heard the machine at all. I love this machine - I move it around the house easily and it is very easy to clean. I thank Scott for his good advice. I can't believe how much better I am since using the ZERO+PRO 5

A real life changer.
I have suffered from hay-fever and allergies all my life and I used to wake up most mornings with blocked sinuses, headaches and being tired from a lack of good sleep. Since buying the Winix Zero+Pro 5-stage Air Purifier I am waking up with a clear head and feeling refreshed because I can now get a really good nights sleep, no sniffles or sneezing. I have it running in the bedroom throughout the night and it automatically adjusts to the required mode without disturbing my sleep because it is whisper quiet. I highly recommend this product as it has really improved my health and general well being.

Questions & Answers
I am looking to buy AUS-1250AZPU but can not find anywhere to get replacement filters. Any suggestions?
You can buy the replacement filters online or over the phone direct from Ausclimate.
We are the official distributor for Winix Australia.
Our web address is ausclimate.com.au
You can view our full range of products, including filters. We also offer free delivery.
When set to "auto" mode my Zero+ spontaneously reverts to "sleep auto" mode if ambient light is low - such as for watching evening TV.
My Winix AUS-9500 has no such problem.
I am then compelled to select a set fan speed with the front light remaining blue (regardless of the speed I select) giving me no indication of the actual fan speed, and no automatic change in fan speed to mirror changing air quality.
Q1. Is there a fix?
Q2. Do I have a defective unit?
I do not understand your problem. I found that Ausclimate were more than helpful when I contacted them. I suggest you do that online at https://www.ausclimate.com.au/
Thanks for responding DerekH.
To simplify: when "auto" mode is selected and I dim the lights the Zero+ goes into an ineffective "sleep" mode, even though I haven't selected sleep mode. There are times when I would like to dim my lights without having the Zero+ fall asleep.
There is nothing in the manual to suggest such a mode even exists. According to the manual "auto" mode only cycles the fan speed (low, medium, high & turbo) in response to changes in air pollution levels.
The new range of Winix Zero air purifiers have light sensors.
What this means is when set on 'auto' they will go into sleep mode at night. This feature is designed to ensure whisper quiet operation while sleeping so there will be no fan speed fluctuations that may disturb your sleep.
If the air purifier is set on 'auto', operating 24/7 in the same room then the fan speeds adjust accoringly during the daytime to maintain clean air. Therefore, because the air is already clean, you don't have to have the fans fluctuating on to higher speeds at night.
If used in really poor air quailty situations at night, like what we are experiencing with the smoke from the terrible bush fires then I would consider operating the air purifier's fan speed manually at night, possibley set on 'medium'. The higher the fan speed, the faster the air is filtered.
I hope I have explained this well.
If you would like further clarity, please don't hesitate to call Ausclimate on 1800 122100
P.S the Winix AUS-9500 did not have this feature.
Is it best to keep doors and windows closed when switched on? I have it running in my living room but like to keep sliding door open for air. The door does have a security mesh screen so not direct air.
We keep outside doors and windows closed. But occasionally leave a door to the hall open but usually closed. Obviously there is a limit to the volume of air it can maintain as clean.
