Venta Airwasher LW15 Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
We've gone through several humidifiers in our household. We've also gone through several nebulizers, too, thanks to some breathing issues our son has. With all the humidifiers, we've gone through numerous filters, too, each maybe lasting a month or two at most. Thanks to an opportunity from Venta, we had a chance to try out their Airwasher LW15. Their Airwasher is a combined humidifier and air purifier in one, so it will humidify the air and remove dirt and dust at the same time. It is also filterless which is a great savings in the long run.

Setup of the LW15 is a breeze. Just unbox the unit, remove a bit of cardboard, fill with water, add a water treatment additive, and the unit is ready to work. You need to add more additive about once a month or so. A five month supply of additive runs about $23, so definitely less costly than replacing filters. You can also pickup three bottles of fragrances you could add for $20. About placement of the unit, keep it at least two feet from the wall.

We run the unit at night (though the machine is meant to be run 24 hours). The first night of usage, my son came running out after he went to bed. He didn't like the new unit and wanted the old system back. The LW15 was running too quiet and he had gotten so used to the white noise of the old machine. Yes, the machine ran too quiet. For the first night, we went back to the old machine. Then, we picked up a separate white noise machine to run when the Airwasher runs, so my son still hears the fan running, or at least what sounds like one. All is well after that got added.

Venta offers three Airwasher models, which you would get depends on the size of the room you'd like to treat. The LW15 we have is perfect for up to 200 square feet. That handles a room about 12' x 16' and runs $220 to buy. My son's room is a tad smaller than that. The next size is the LW25 for a 400 square foot room (20' x 20') and costs $300. Finally, the largest unit is the LW45. It is meant for those homes with an open floor plan and will handle a room size upwards of 800 square feet at a cost of $400.
So far so good with the Venta. My only real complaint about the unit is you have to carry the base of the machine to your water source (or use a pitcher to refill). There isn't a separate bottle to carry around and refill. If you aren't careful, things splash around a little and it is easy to spill. Apart from that and the fact that my son thinks the thing is too quiet, it is working great. 

The controls on the top of the unit are very simple to use. But, really, all you have to do is make sure the unit has water. Once the air reaches its moisture saturation point, the unit stops spewing out more moisture.

I like the fact that the machine doesn't just humidify but also cleans the air. We're not smokers but reducing allergens in the air is sure to help out with any breathing issues.

  5. I want the LW25 for larger rooms. Glad it's energy efficient and will not run up the electric bill. I have a larger bedroom and run two fans since have 1 register in my room and the cool air just doesn't reach my room. There are 2 people in the house that smoke so this will help. Didn't know there was a product like this.

  8. I would love to have one in our home to help everyone with seasonal allergies for the most part but also every day life. We live off a gravel road and driveway so there is always dust in the air & of course it gets in the house. We have had several cheaper ones that didnt work good or even last long, so this one would be amazing to have.. One of the best part is energy efficient & thank goodness power bill will not spike..
