Venta Airwasher LW45

Do you worry about the air in your home? With my husband and I both being allergy sufferers, we worry quite a bit about our air quality throughout the year. Many people assume that Spring is the only time to worry about air quality, but it is something you should worry about year round. Not having enough moisture in the air can lead to illness, not even bringing into account mold or other particles in the air. Using natural cleaners isn’t enough, especially if you have animals in your home, so we have to go above and beyond to make sure we have the best air possible in our home. Luckily, we just found the perfect solution – a Venta Airwasher!

Venta Airwasher LW 45: What is It?

Looking for a high end humidifier that not only perfectly humidifies your air, but purifies it as well? I so, we think you will love the Venta Airwasher LW 45. As the best large room humidifier and air purifier on the market, it is engineered to capture more allergens and particulate matter than any other model for areas up to 800 square feet. While it cleans the air, it adds the right level of moisture to the air, and turns off once your air has reach the perfect moisture, allowing it to work in harmony with your heat and air system. Best of all, it is eco-friendly, light, and does not require filters, eliminating any concern about hygiene or messy clean up. With Venta’s high quality German engineering and manufacturing, we are certain you will love having this dual-purpose humidifier and air purifier in your home!

Venta Airwasher LW 45: Overall

In all honesty, I was nervous when I first brought in the Venta Airwasher. It came in a rather large box, and I automatically assumed it would be too heavy for me to deal with on my own. To my surprise, it was actually very light and just as easy to set up. In less than five minutes, we had this humidifier out of the box and set up in our living room. Really, the hardest part was reading the directions to make sure we were doing everything correctly.  All you have to do is fill it with water to the fill line, walk away, and just check the water level daily to make sure the unit doesn’t need water. Clean up is also easy since you don’t have to deal with filters or nasty residue on the machine. To me, this is a huge deal since we had mold grow in our old humidifiers (scary or what?).  Best of all, we are breathing better, making our home more comfortable and easier for everyone in our home.  Really, I don’t think we could be happier. Based on our own experience, we are delighted to give the Venta Airwasher LW 45 an A+ rating and highly recommend it to all of our readers.

    This is definitely a product I could use! I have tried humidifier’s, and it would only go to 25% humidity, in the winter. That’s how dry the air in my apartment is! I get constant nosebleed due to the air quality, and will definitely be looking into this Airwasher product! Thanks!!

    We all have allergies in our household. This is exactly what we need. We also have cats and dogs. I think this would benefit our entire household in such a good way!

    Thank you for the informative review on the Venta Airwasher. We could really use one due to all the pollen in spring and summer and all of the ragweed in the fall and winter in North Carolina. We have also had problems with water damage and certain types of mold growing in the house as a result of the damage. Luckily it is not black or red mold and is not toxic.

    I smoke – really hard to quit – and I live in a mobile home, raising my grandson, and I’m on disability. This sounds like a product made in heaven. Wish I had the funds to get one. Thank you for the review.

    I appreciate that this is a two in one. I feel that it can moisten our one so our noses don’t bleed at night, especially for my little one. I also like that it helps with the filth in the air and hopefully can get rid of smells too.

    Definitely need this living in Michigan which is one of the worst states to live in if you have allergies. This sounds like a great product for our home.

    I have air purifiers in every room and I agree it’s a pain vacuuming those filters. The permanent filter air purifiers really aren’t permanent because once the filter gets to a certain color you have to replace them and they are expensive. If your air filters aren’t totally clean, then your air isn’t getting as purified as you think. I’ve read about the Venta Airwasher and it sounds like a great product which would really clean your air .

This past winter was very cold and our furnace was going constantly which meant dry, sore throats from the dry air in our home. This unit would be perfect for us.
