Oreck Dual Max

The Oreck Dual Max air purifier is probably one of the most understated models on the market today. The design is such that it will blend seamlessly into any indoor décor. Aside from the design, Oreck has also put an enormous amount of effort into the technology behind this unit, and very successfully. The finished product is a highly effective air purifier that will leave your home feeling clean and fresh.

Review Details

Using their own patented fan designs, the Oreck Dual Max delivers twice the power and double the airflow. In a room up to 200 square feet, you can expect the removal of not only harmful allergens, but just about any type of VOC’s that can occur in the home. In addition, household odors will also be drastically reduced.

This is all done using both the Truman Cell filter and the Helios Shield which are patented to Oreck, making this one of the most effective air purifiers on the market.

What We Liked

  • Low Maintenance
    Keeping the Dual Max air purifier well maintained couldn’t be easier. The Truman Cell will only ever require a wash with soapy water and the Helios Shield will NEVER need to be cleaned.
  • Remote Control
    Operate your Dual Max from anywhere in the room with the full functional remote control.
  • True Forced Air Filtration
    The Truman Cell filter traps particles such as dust, pollen, pet dander, tobacco smoke and other harmful allergens that pass through it. At the same time the Helios Shield reduces common household odors and various gases given off by cleaning sprays.
  • Super Quiet Speeds
    This model comes with 3 speeds for your convenience and Oreck uses Silence Technology so you will barely know it’s working when on its lowest speed (a mere 37 decibels).
  • Adjustable Night Light
    For further convenience Oreck has incorporated an adjustable night light.

What We Didn't Like

  • Noise Level on High
    There are 3 speeds available with the Oreck Dual Max. Both low and medium are super quiet but on high it can emit a large amount of noise.
  • Effective in Smaller Areas Only
    Oreck has designed this air purifier to be affective in rooms up to 200 square feet in size. For any space larger than this, you will require more units.


The Dual Max is the latest in a long line of very successful models from Oreck. It may cost a little more than some other brands, but the dual filter system is permanent. This means there is no added expense regarding replacements once you’ve purchased the unit. It will effectively keep the air in your home free of allergens and reduce many household odors as well as the affects of potentially harmful gases. In our opinion, an excellent purchase!
