I’ve suffered from allergies since I was a child. As an adult (in desperate need of allergy relief!) I’ve tried many different ways to battle them. I got an air purifier for the bedroom. I use a vacuum with a good HEPA filter and try to keep my home dusted. None of it worked. Several months ago I finally broke down and went to the doctor. I needed a better solution than the OTC allergy meds I was taking that not only weren’t getting the job done but were also making me drowsy and miserable. I was prescribed a nasal spray and for the first time in years, I was able to breathe again. While I loved how well the meds were working, I still wasn’t satisfied with the solution. I wanted a more natural approach though I didn’t think it was possible to control my symptoms any other way. Still, I gave essential oils a try and have been pretty impressed with the results. I was also recently introduced to an air purifier unlike any I have ever seen before and it’s amazing!
The Venta Airwasher uses water to humidify and purify the air. It’s eco-friendly, easy to use and there are no filters to change! The LW45 model which is the one I received is Venta’s most powerful Airwasher and is designed for rooms up to 800 square feet. Since we have an open floor plan, it’s working beautifully in our living room and extending it’s benefits throughout our entire main living area.
I was surprised how easy it was to set up and use. It basically has 3 parts: The base, the lid and the disk stack. The disk stack is one piece and just sits inside the base. The top which houses the fan sits right on top of that. To get started you fill the base with water up to the fill line and add Venta Water Treatment Additive. After that, filling the base with water up to the fill line everyday is all you need to do!
On top of the Airwasher are some very simple controls. A button to turn it on and one to select the fan speed. Even at it’s top speed, the Airwasher is very quiet. At it’s low speed you hardly even notice that it’s on. As it runs, it not only cleans the air by capturing allergens and particle matter but also adds the right level of moisture to the air — all without a pesky filter to change! It will never over-humidify your home because with it’s cold evaporation method, the air will only take the moisture it needs and nothing more.
To see how the Venta Airwasher works watch this short video:
Venta Airwashers are energy-efficient (using less than 10 watts), eco-friendly (no filters to change) and low maintenance (clean it twice a year!). I could tell a difference in the air quality almost immediately. It just felt cleaner. And so fresh. Breathing easier means more restful sleep. Perfectly humidified air means healthier skin. Overall, you’ll just feel healthier — that’s an amazing thing from one little device!
Every 10-14 days you’ll need to completely empty the unit then fill it right back up and add your water additive again. Once or twice a year your unit might need a little deeper cleaning. Just wipe it out with some vinegar and water and you’ll be all set to go again! Talk about low maintenance! The hardest part for me is remembering to add water daily. It’s suggested that you fill it at the same time each day so that it becomes part of your daily routine and the habit is formed. I’m still trying to establish that. It took a few days to find the right place for the unit but I think it’s finally found it’s forever “home”. The first place I had it and thought was ideal turned out not to be. My kids kept unplugging it to charge their Kindle. Now it’s next to our fireplace where no one will bother it and it’s visible to the point where I can’t forget to add the daily water it needs.
One of the things I was most excited about before I received the Airwasher was the fact that I was told I could use essential oils in it! What a great way to diffuse your favorite scents or blends for additional health benefits! When I received the unit though I found out that Venta makes their own 100% natural essential oils that have been developed and tested specifically for use in the Venta Airwasher and they are the only ones approved by Venta for use in the Airwasher. The Aromatherapy line comes out early this summer so be sure to keep your eye out for it!
