Oreck Air Purifier Review

According to the EPA, the air inside your home may be 5x more polluted than the outside air and most people spend almost 90% of their time indoors. The problem can be aggravated if your windows and doors are weather-tight, if you have pets or if someone smokes inside your home. That is why you need an air purifier at home, which is a proactive, easy and a portable way that can help to keep the air in your home clean. The air purifier circulates the air and filters out the dirt, allergens and airborne irritants. It also helps to capture and kill germs and viruses and helps to break down chemical compounds such as aerosol vapors, chemical fumes and other odors.

The ProShield Plus Air Purifier from Oreck is a high-quality air purifier that has been designed to keep your home clean and fresh. The ProShield Plus air purifier features the patented Truman Cell filtration system, which helps to capture all the dust and allergens in your home. The air purifier also features the Helios Shield that helps to eliminate all unpleasant odors.

The ProShield Plus air purifier has two speed settings and the low setting ensures that the air purifier operates very quietly. The machine is slim and compact, which allows you to either let it stand so that it can fit into tight spaces or you can lay it flat. And, when the Truman Cell filter of the Proshield Plus gets dirty, you can just rinse it, let it dry and re-use it again.

In our Oreck air purifier review,we will be discussing the features and the pros and cons of the air purifier in detail.


  • 6-Stage Purification:The purification process of the air purifier has 6 stages, which cleans and then recirculates the air. The 6-stage purification process contains the pre-filter, charging wires, particle collection, UV-A light, oxygenator and the air revitalizer.
  • Pre-Filter:The air purifier has a pre-filter that helps to filter large particles such as lint, dust and hair.
  • Helios Shield and Catalytic Oxygenator:This helps to reduce the odors and the ozone in the air that passes through the filter of the air purifier. The Helios Shield and Catalytic Oxygenator cannot be removed.
  • Truman Cell Filtration System:The air purifier makes use of the Truman Cell Filtration System, which is patented technology. The Truman Cell charges the small particles like smoke, dust, mold, pollen and other allergens electrostatically and collects them as they pass through the air filter. And, when the Truman Cell becomes dirty, you can simply rinse it clean and let it dry and reinsert it for long-time use.
  • Speed Indicator Light: The light indicates the speed at which the motor of the air purifier is running and it has 5 lights that indicate full motor speed.
  • Odor Control: This tuns the Helios Shield on/off. If the button is turned off, the air purifier will still continue to filter the particles passing through the filter, although the capability of odor reduction of the unit will be switched off
  • Power or Motor Speed Button: This allows you to control the speed of the air purifier. If you press the power button repeatedly, then you can set the speed that you desire. The lowest speed gives you the quietest operation because it features Silence Technology. The medium speed is for normal usage and for maximum cleaning, use the high speed.
