Excerpt: I bought one two years ago and within a week bought another one for the bedroom. It's true it is noisy on high, and silent seems inefficient so the compromise is medium...some sound but good air cleaning. Here's a tip if you don't want to often wash the cleaning cell ( box#. Buy a package of Static Matic refill cloths #20 in a box# at Dollerama for a buck. Take one or two and fold in half.
Excerpt: I purchased the ORECK home air purifier and its the best thing I have ever done for me and my family. My home is so much more filled with fresh air,you can,t even smell the cigarette soke anymore.I wanted an air purifier cause my grandchildren visit often and I smoke and Oreck has most certainly lived up to its expectations and more!!
Excerpt: We have 2, bought one two and half years ago, and another a year and a half ago. Before these we had a industerial one costing thousands of dollars and it broke down a year and half after we bought it. The Oreck ones work great and I have recommended them to my best friend who like myself has has severe breathing problems. Easy to clean, and no filters to buy. I know they seem expensive but in the long run will save money over time.
Excerpt: I had burned some food quite badly, leaving a heavy second hand smoke smell in my house. I had purchased and tried the Honeywell Air Purifier and that had next to no appreciable affect on my air quality. After 1.5 weeks of this, I did some research and purchased the Oreck XL purifier. Within 1 hour of turning it on, I noticed a huge improvement in my house. This purifier is AMAZING and worth it if you have a problem such as mine.
Excerpt: By far the best product out there for air purifiers. It does cost more but worth every cent. Within hours the air in our home smelled more fresh and my allergy symptoms were gone! Easy to clean and to assemble. We keep it on medium speed in the spare bedroom, so noise levels are minimum. So happy with this purchase.
Excerpt: I small bachelor aprtment and have been using the Ionic Pro for years. it is a look-a-like versions of the popular Sharper Image and Oreck air purifiers.It was difficult to clean and very "touchy" regarding operation. I finally threw it in the bin in frustration and purchased my Oreck XL.and couldn't be happier with its performance. I usually run it on high for an hour and when the air is fresh and clean, put it on silent. Oreck included a Speed Sweep Model Tex 100 free.
Excerpt: My wife and I have breathing problems and have bought 2 of these. We keep one in the bedroom and one in the TV room. We run both on Med and we hardly even notice that it is running. When we are not in a room we switch it to high and close the door. Even after only 1 hour, we go back into the room and you can really notice the difference.
