  • Very energy efficient. Uses less power than a typical light bulb.
  • Easy to clean and has a very easy-to-use control panel to help control the machine's settings.
  • Three different technologies are used to help purify the air.

Cons of Oreck XL Air Purifier

  • Using the purifier on high speed produces a very loud sound.
  • The Truman Cell technology needs to be cleaned around every 3 days, or a zapping noise is produced.
  • The model is rather expensive, selling for between $350 to $500.

What does Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier offer its Users?

  • Technology Used in the Oreck Xl Air Purifier
  • This model of air purifier uses three different forms of air purification technology to help make your air cleaner and more healthy. The combination of these three forms will help purify the air in 3 distinct ways.

    Truman Cell Technology

    The Truman Cell which the Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier uses is located in the front of the model and with the electrostatic technology that it employs, it will work toward removing impurities in the air.

    One side of the Truman Cell is positively charged, which can affect the condition of the harmful elements in one's air. As the fan pulls the air through the Truman Cell, this electrostatic charge will work to kill any germs, viruses, and impurity in the air.

    Your purifier will be supplied with a Truman Cell which, if properly taken care of, will last a lifetime. If you wish to buy a replacement or a backup Truman Cell, however, you can expect to pay around $60.

    Charcoal Filter

    A charcoal filter works to remove unwanted odor from the air. The charcoal itself will absorb any gases which can be found in the air and helps to make the air easier to breathe. Each of these filters will cost around $30 and need to be replaced after every three months of use.


    The mesh filter located in the back of the purifier will work to help reduce the amount of ozone which the Truman Cell technology produces. While ozone itself can be helpful to help remove odor in the air, it can also be unhealthy at higher levels. This mesh filter, however, absorbs the amount of ozone produced and will help keep the air healthy.

  • Performance of Oreck XL professional Air Purifier

  • This Oreck indoor home air purifier uses five different stages of purification to help ensure that up to 95% of the particles which are loose in the air will be trapped. These particles can be as small as 0.1 microns and still be effectively removed by this purifier.

    Traditionally, Oreck XL air purifier reviews state that this model can clean up to a 600 square foot room within an hour. By those standards, smaller rooms will have their air changed through this purifier multiple times in an hour.

  • Maintenance Requirements
  • As long as the Truman Cell technology that this air purifier uses is taken care of, one should never need to replace it. This will require frequently cleaning, however, as often as every three days. A light on the console of the machine will indicate when the Truman Cell needs cleaned. The charcoal filter, on the other hand, typically needs to be replaced about every three months.

    Cleaning the Truman Cell is rather easy. Simple soap and water will be all that is required to remove all of the buildup that it gathers. Once the Truman Cell is dry again, it can be used in the machine easily.

  • Energy Usage
  •   This Oreck indoor home air purifier is very energy efficient, using less wattage within an hour than a typical 85 watt light bulb. This will give it the ability to be constantly run without costing too much for usage.

    This model comes with three different forms of noise control. The high setting will give all of the traditional noise of a fan. It runs at a high speed and can be rather noisy. The medium setting is relatively quiet, enough to know that the machine is running but not offering any distraction. The Silent setting is next to impossible to realize that it is running and can be a great asset.

  • Price And Warranty
  • The manufacturer currently gives a retail price of nearly $370 for its tabletop model. If one is looking for a freestanding model, they will pay nearly $600.

    When used in a residential setting, the model will come with a 3 year limited warranty. Oreck will replace, free of charge, any part of the model found to be defective. If used in a commercial space, however, this model will only be given a 1 year limited warranty.

  • Additional Features
    • The control panel is easy to use, with the three speed settings very easily identifiable.
    • A night light is provided on the display, allowing one to see their settings in the darkness. This feature is able to be turned off, stopping the light display.
    • Lights are displayed on the console that lets one know when the Truman Cell technology needs to be cleaned or the charcoal filter must be replaced.
    • The energy efficiency of the Oreck XL professional air purifier allows anyone to take advantage of this model that will be inexpensive to continuously run.
