Dirty air isn’t just outdoors. The air in your home has particles in it, such as pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, and other odors. They’re so microscopic and lightweight that they can remain suspended in the air for hours. In fact, according to the EPA, the air inside your home may be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside.
Oreck knows that you have to move the air to clean the air. That’s why we’ve designed a full line of air purifiers available at The Oreck Store with your needs in mind.
An Oreck air purifier works by filtering out particles from the air that passes through its filter system. But to do that it has to first bring the air into the unit. The fan pulls the polluted air into the unit and through its filters. What happens next depends on the type of filter the air purifier uses.
HEPA filters capture 99.97% of particles from the air passing through the filter, preventing them from moving through to the other side. HEPA filters will eventually capture so many particles (depending on usage and environment) that their efficiency is compromised — and they will have to be replaced. Permanent filters, also known as electrostatic precipitators (or EP filters), are composed of a series metal plates and wires. Particles from the air are positively charged as they enter the cell wires and then are attracted to negatively charged plates (much like a magnet) where they stick until cleaned off.
