I have learned over the years that air purifiers are not created equal. Today I want to share with you a product that not only has great reviews and respect among peers, but does a lot of fabulous things. It’s called the Venta Airwasher and is a humidifier AND a purifier all in one.
First, let’s chat about WHY you need a product like this in your home.
- Common Colds
- Sore Throats
- Chest & Nose Congestion
- Nose bleeding
- Dry skin / Chapped lips
- Allergies: Dust mites, Animal hair, Pollen, etc.
- Tobacco – yuck
- Air Pollution
- Improving Ambient Smells – like wet dog? yes!
- Furniture cracking – oh my
- Improve concentration and Reduce headaches
- Damage to music instruments (wood) – my son loved hearing this since he plays the viola now.
To sum it up – It’s HEALTHY!
Now WHAT does Venta Airwasher do?
The Venta Airwasher fulfills two purposes: it humidifies dry indoor air while simultaneously purifying it. Dry indoor air is drawn into the unit and passes through the disk stacks which rotate in the water. The air is literally washed. Even the smallest particles are trapped in the water. At the same time, pure water evaporates on the exchanger surfaces, which is widely recognized as the best method of cold evaporation.
What is really cool is that there are NO filters needed. The water is the filter. Very unique!
Dry indoor air is literally washed as it is drawn into the appliance and passed through the disk stacks rotating in water. Impurities in the air, stale tobacco smoke, household dust, pollen and allergens are trapped in the water, and only clean, humidified air evaporates. The Venta Airwasher works on the principle of natural evaporation which is widely recognized as the best method of humidification. No ions, no ozone, no white dust; will not over-humidify.
So yes you have two benefits: Humidification AND Purification.
HOW do I operate it?
I was sent the largest unit – LW45 – that covers up to 800sq ft which is perfect for our open floor plan first floor. I was a little worried about the size (see pic above), thinking it would be too big, but it’s not. And you can choose the color white or black. Plug it in around the clock – it takes very little energy.
Each day or so you fill it with water. Again, there are NO filters to have to change. There is a water treatment additive they want you to add every 2 weeks so I just marked my calendar when I needed to do that. Now, sometimes I forget things. Call it mommy brain. A red light comes on telling me my water is too low and automatically shuts off. This reminds me that it’s thirsty and calls me to action.
Hubby asked one day – Is that thing really on? Yes, it is super quiet!
It makes me feel better to have the Airwasher in my home. It is engineered to capture allergens to clean the air and then adds the right level of moisture to benefit. If you have allergies, asthma or chronic nose bleeding, I REALLY think you need one though it is definitely beneficial to everyone on many levels. You’ll be amazed.
