Oreck XL ProShield Air Purifier Series

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

Air purifiers have become more popular in the 21st century as the push for environmental consciousness has caused more homeowners to recognize the amount of dust particles and pollutants circulating in the air.

Oreck, long recognized as a leader in high in vacuum cleaners, has also become a leader in mid-range, value-driven air purifiers. The Oreck XL ProShield Air Purifier helps reduce the amount of harmful airborne particles in the air which helps you breathe more easily in your home.

By capturing and destroying the contaminants in your home, the Oreck Purifier can help people that struggle with allergies and asthmas. Dust, pollen, bacteria, viruses, mold spores, fungi, pet dander and cigarette smoke are among the air pollutants that are efficiently absorbed by the Oreck.

The Oreck XL is a tall standing purifier with a sleek black color and style. Every hour, it cleans and recirculates the air in a 12' x 18' room twice. It comes with a Truman Cell proprietary permanent filter technology. This is a huge savings over other filters, including one we own, that must be replaced annually.

The Oreck XL is extremely quiet. Without the blue light indicator to signal that the power is on, it would be hard to know it was in operation. With a price point of $349 to $399, the Oreck XL is not a low end air purifier, but it is not overpriced either. Considering the savings on filter replacements, it offers a fairly solid value.

The only real challenge of the filter is that it is much bigger than other standard table top air purifiers. This is only a problem in terms of finding a functional, yet aesthetically pleasing place in your home to set the purifier.

If you are looking for an easy and relatively affordable way to breathe in cleaner and purer air, the Oreck XL Air Purifier Series should be among your mid-range value considerations.
