V31199 - Oreck Air Purifier with Truman Cell Technology&Odor Filter
love this thing
I wish they had this back to order a 2nd one! I used to smell doggy odors when it rained and wanted to do something to make the house smell better. I saw this air purifier and thought let me give it a try. It works fanastically and the house never has odors now. Also, I love that there is a reusable filter. Just take it out, rinse it, and back in it goes. So easy!!
The cover is a little challenging to put but on, back that is the only negative.
Was Really Good For A While & Would Have Recommend
Really Awesome at first. and would have highly recommended... all of a sudden , after 5 mths wouldn't close after cleaning, so it wouldn't start at all. geeeee... had a month after extended pay where it worked. It is made of plastic, so I guess 5 months is good? You can be the judge, maybe it was my fault somehow?
I like it!
I've been running this now for a few months and have no problems. I (like some others) live in Los Angeles and am "creeped out" by the black junk that washes out of the filter cartridge. I soak mine in a large bucket, in the shower stall...then rinse well with the power of the handheld shower wand. I dry, gently what I can, stand it in front of a fan and let it sit all day while I'm gone...ready to go when I get home. Yes, the 2nd and 3rd settings of the fan are indeed loud but that's ok...the "silent" mode is almost silent but I'm used to sleeping with a fan on and this setting is TOO quiet for me! I like it and feel that I sleep better.
Great air purifier!
Love this air purifier. It really works well. I generally feel like the air in the house is much better than not using the purifier. I do move it every few days to different rooms. I believe I feel better with this unit running. No stuffy head, sneezing, or watery eyes. I came back to order another one for my office because it has that new construction smell and I'm so dissapointed that it is no longer available from QVC. Please bring it back!
Maintenance needs to be done on this but it works
I bought this a bit ago.. it works BUT my biggest suggestion is that you put the filters and the big yellow box in your bathtub every few months and if you have a hand held shower head, use it on both. Be gentle. I have put them both in my sink before but they never got cleansed and when I used my shower head's pressure, I saw all the "yucky black stuff" going down the drain. I live in L.A. and it makes me mad that soooo much yuck is coming into my house. So keep your purifier clean often and it DOES make a difference!
not worth the price. 1st it is noisy it sounds like a over sized bug zapper, & if you have it on any speed other than the lowest setting its loud. 2nd I have only had it for a short time & I have to clean it again & then after you clean the permanent filter you have to wait till it dries before you can reinstall it. I have an older model of an Oreck Air Purifier that I purchased from QVC,& I am sure glad I didn't sell it. I am sending this back to QVC.
Thank you for the cleaner air!
Have two cats and a dog living in my home. Love my animals, but the cat litter box not so much. When I saw a previous review stating they used the purifier by their litter box I thought this may be the answer I'm looking for. Within a couple of days I noticed a big difference in the air quality. As a week or two went by realized this product was worth taking the chance. I plan on purchasing another one in the near future for my bedroom.
You need to have realistic expectations with this
Good for a large room...not an entire home or apartment. Nothing gets rid of the smell of cigarette/cigar smoke (I used to smoke myself). Zapping is NORMAL with anything electrostat...which this is. I had a whole house electrostat air cleaner on my home years ago...they zap when dust particles hit the filter. I've read the complaints...PEOPLE NEED TO HAVE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS. What will this do? It will reduce the amount of dust particles and filter the air in a large room...not one with vaulted ceilings with an open floor plan...a regular room. If you are a smoker I would recommend the Oreck cell cleaner. It's a spray that does a better job than soaking alone. I give it four stars because the fan is noisy on the medium and high setting. For the price of this machine you can't be too picky. I've seen comparable ones for twice the price.
Does what it says it can do.
I am pleased with the two units I bought. The only drawback is when cleaning the truman cell, the drying time was about one day. Otherwise, it is worth the investment. I have tried other brands and found theydid not work half as well. If you suffer with allergies or asthma, this is a good product when it comes to reducing allergens.
before I got this from qvc I use to get lots of headaches and now my bedroom air has never been cleaner and I get less headaches
I bought this air purifier because you can wash the cell. I was surprised how dirty the water was when I washed it after the first month of use. I have a smoker in our home so I keep it in our large open living room, kitchen, and dining room area. I turn it on high when we are out because it is quite noisy. I run it on medium the remainder of the time. I've had Hunter air purifiers (bought on QVC) that can't be washed and after a few months of use they are useless because of the permanent unremovable filter. You can actually smell the freshened air that comes out of this great machine!
I BOUGHT THIS FOR MY HUSBAND. HE SUFFERS A LUNG CONDITION, THIS. AIR PURIFIER HELP HIM A LOT WITH HIS CONDITION.THE AIR IN HIS ROOM IS LIGHTER THAN THE REST OF THE HOUSE. PLANNIG TO BUY TWO MORE. VERY HAPPY !
