Do you you suffer from allergies or have concerns about air quality in your home? It doesn’t matter what part of the United States you live in, allergens are everywhere. If you are not suffering from allergies in the spring, summer and fall, then many of you are impacted by not having enough moisture in the air during the winter months. Our family suffers from all of this at some point in the year and we also have the misfortune of living in a city that still has the nation’s highest levels of ozone and fine particle pollution. We are all smart enough to know that if the air outside is not healthy, chances are it is not the best inside the home either. We were excited and fortunate enough to be provided with the Venta Airwasher LW45 for review and it really seems to be an ideal solution for upgrading our indoor air quality.
What is a Venta Airwasher LW45?
The LW45 Airwasher is the top of the line large room humidifier and air purifier on the market, and has been engineered to capture more allergens and particulate matter than any other model, for areas up to 800 square feet.
The Venta Airwasher offers a worldwide unique technology. The Airwasher works without filter pads. Dry indoor air is drawn into the appliance and passes through the disk stacks rotating in water. The air is literally washed. Impurities in the air, stale tobacco smoke, household dust, pollen and allergens are trapped in the water. 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.

What is my take on the Venta Airwasher LW 45?
I absolutely love it and was totally impressed. The Venta Airwasher LW45 comes in a fairly large box so it can be intimidating when it first arrives. Pay no attention to that. Set up is so simple and the actual machine is very light. I set it up without any assistance from my husband ( which is unusual for me) and I believe it took me less than 5 minutes to set it up. You simply fill it with tap water to the fill line, plug it in and walk away. It will both clean your air and humidify it to the perfect level. It will not over humidify. Just check back daily to make sure the water level is sufficient.
It works with plain water and any water density (from soft to hard), so there is no need to buy distilled water. That is a big plus in my book. There are no expensive filters to purchase either. The water is essentially your filter. Dirty air is drawn in and literally washed through the disc stacks and only clean air is placed back into your home environment.
I also love how quiet this machine is. You really don’t even know it is there. Whether you have it in a living room or the baby’s room, you will not have to worry about any noise distraction. The Venta Airwasher is energy-efficient and requires very little power. It is also easy to maintain and keep clean.
We have been using the machine for several weeks now and I feel like I can tell the difference. I think there is less dust in our house and we have noticed a reduction of those annoying pet smells from our lovable pups. We are loving the clean air in our home and the reduction of irritant and allergy-causing dust and mold. I personally feel that my skin is more moisturized and feels healthier. My husband thinks that he is sleeping better at night and I know that he seems to be snoring less. HELLO…I am here to tell you that the machine is worth its weight in gold if that continues! We both will be getting a better night’s sleep. Most likely that is because we have reduced the allergens and improved the overall health and environmental balance in our home by using the Venta Airwasher.
During the winter months when heating systems run nonstop in many of the cold weather states, the relative humidity of a home’s indoor can plummet to a harmfully low level (drier than Death Valley) for furniture and woodwork. For those of you with valuable wood furniture pieces or musical instruments, the Venta Airwasher can help protect those from those dry winter months. It will keep the humidification level in your home at the perfect setting.
So…if you have issues with pet smells, allergens, incredibly dry air or a husband that snores like someone has cranked up a chainsaw in your bedroom, I suggest you purchase a Venta Airwasher or two for your home. Learn how you can join the Venta family here.
