The New Winix U450 with 99.97% True Hepa Filter for dust and allergen removal and Activated Granular Carbon Cell for superior adsorption of Smoke, Fumes, Odours and VOC's.
The WINIX U450 Air Purifier certainly doesn’t skimp on features. It’s ready to go with an ALL-IN-ONE filtration cassette packed to the brim with 99.97% efficient True HEPA filtration, Washable Pre-Filter, CleanCel Anti-Microbial Technology, Granular Odour Eliminating Activated Carbon Filter,and PlasmaWave Technology providing 5-stage superior control of household odours, pollutants, and allergens. Other notable features include a remote control, Filter Monitor to let you know when to change the filter and a Light Sensor which monitors the ambient lighting in the room and adjusts the units electronic display to suit, making sure it is nice and dim at night, and bright enough to see in the morning.
The Winix U450 also has one of the most powerful CADR ratings in its class. CADR stands for Clean Air Delivery Rate and is the recognised standard for assessing how quickly an air purifier will purify the air in your room size. In large rooms up to 45 square metres the U450 will purify all of the air once every 12 minutes. To put that into perspective, many similar priced units available on the High Street in outlets such as John Lewis take around 45 minutes to do this once. In short, the quicker the air purifier recirculates the air the better. Pollution in your room does not stop and start, it is a constant factor which relies upon frequent Clean Air Delivery to stay on top of it.
Clean Air Delivery Rate is only half the story...
Although the amount of air passing through the filter is hugely important, it is equally important that the quality of that air meets the correct Hepa standards to ensure that the tiniest of allergens and other airborne pollutants such as traffic particulate (PM2.5), bacteria and viruses, are also being filtered to the highest possible degree. The new Winix U450 with Air Quality Smart Sensor has been scientifically tested and approved by Allergy UK, the leading UK Charity that acts as the voice of millions allergy sufferers. The Filter inside the U450 is a certified True Hepa which traps over 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns including airborne allergens, household dust, mould spores, fungi, bacteria and viruses.
Granular Carbon layer for Superior Smoke , Odour and VOC removal.
Removing particles like those mentioned above is one thing, but removing fumes, chemicals and odours is another matter all together. These are all gases, and therefore too small to be trapped in even the most efficient Hepa filter. These can only be removed by adsorption, and the only thing they can be adsorbed into is carbon. In addition to its Hepa filter, the U450 has a heavy layer of genuine granular carbon which adsorbs these gases and send the air back into the room odour and chemical free. Carbon filters are especially beneficial to anyone suffering from MCS ( Chemical Sensitivity to the fumes from furniture glue, perfumes and household cleaning products) , and also for removing the odours from tobacco smoke, cooking and pets.
Sleep Mode and Low Energy Consumption
Two of the most frequently asked questions we get here at Breathing Space are 'How much does it cost to run?' and 'How quiet is it?' The good news is that The U450 costs less to run than most standard light bulbs,and is very nearly completely silent on its sleep mode, meaning you can use it all night without fear of interrupting your sleep. In fact when running in sleep mode it consumes only 11 watts of energy which is quite amazing. Even in turbo mode (which you can use to really purge a room quickly) it still uses only 110 watts of power.
New 'Smart' Air Quality Monitor
The new Smart Sensor feature continuously monitors the air quality in the room and and when it senses a change in pollution levels, it automatically adjusts the fan speed to provide the optimum level of performance required to bring the levels back down to safe, comfortable levels. This ensure the machine is always working to provide the best possible air cleanliness for you, even when you are not around.
Recommended use for Living Room, Family Room, Large Bedroom or Kitchen.
The U450 comes ready to use with Hepa filter and carbon filters already pre-installed, simply take it out of the box, plug it in and let it work its magic automatically. Of course, here at Breathing Space we do love to talk to our customers, so we are always here to help you and offer advice even after you have received your air purifier!

After doing a lot of research and getting nowhere, I called Breathing Space to ask for advice on my requirements. They were extremely helpful, patient and suggested this U450 as a good choice for me. Well, it got delivered promptly as they said, and the unit has been wonderful. It is quiet, especially at the lowest setting, so am able to keep it in my bedroom working all night without disturbing my sleep. The air quality is now so good that I have had comments form guests remarking how fresh the house smells. I am breathing a lot easier and so I am very pleased with the unit. The only negative is that it is a bit bulky to move around and has only one handle in the back to hold it. I like to move it around the house to different rooms and it is a bit awkward (I am a slim 60 year old female) but I have learned how to manage it. Apart from that, it is an excellent purifier, good- looking as far as purifiers go, and I can recommend it highly.
Only been using this for a short while but up to now it ticks alll the boxes excellent machine very quiet I would definitely recommend this item to my friends and family communications from the company where excellent and tracking brilliant would purchase again from them
This is far superior to my older air purifier which is now a couple of years old. I love the automatic sensor so I don't have to wait until I can sense something in air and take action - this machine does it all for me - fantastic!
I recently purchased the Winix air purifier as hay fever was making like quite miserable. And I'm glad I did because it really has made a big difference. With in a couple of hours I noticed an improvement in the symptoms, and it really has made a difference. But it's also cleared the dust in the room as well. When the sun shone in the room you could see the air was full of fine dust, not any more. On auto you can hardly hear it running. It's made well, and really easy to use. The service from Breathing Space was good, and delivery fast. Glad I took the plunge I bought it as well worth the money. Very happy with the item.
We chose this machine because it removes almost every type of pollutant; I have multiple chemical sensitivity and various allergies; we also preferred a purifier that would remove dust and hopefully bacteria and viruses from the air. Some other products we considered need frequent filter changes, and/or filters are very hard to find when replacements are needed.The U450 stands in our hallway (all the indoor doors are normally kept open for air to circulate) and seems to be doing a good job, we have owned it a week or so. It senses very swiftly if I am dusting in any room, even upstairs; it rapidly senses any kind of household scents and cooking odours. It can be a little noisy for a few minutes when busily removing pollutants that it has sensed, but most of the day it is very quiet. We were very pleased with the excellent product-knowledge and fast delivery from Breathing Space.
Excellent telephone support and next day delivery was perfect. Advice re: most appropriate model for circumstances (to deal with cigarette smoke) was provided very clearly and extensively. Would not hesitate to recommend this company. Very easy to set up and display panel is clearly laid out too. If you have any queries, it is best to check with Breathing Space e.g. over how long to leave the unit running initially and on what level, as the instruction manual covers several models.
