Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you need to clean the air?
According to the EPA, the air inside your home may be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. So every time you close the door to your home, you're sealing yourself in with airborne dust, allergens, pet dander, smoke, VOCs and other odors. These particles are so microscopic and lightweight that they can remain suspended in the air for hours. You've got to move the air to clear the air — and that's where air purifiers come in.
Why is moving the air in a room necessary to the air purification process?
Oreck air purifiers work 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 across its filters.
What are volatile organic compounds?
