Fighting Allergies in Our Home with Oreck Tru Response

Fighting allergies all year round can be a challenge. Between outdoor allergens in the warm months, and year-round indoor allergens, my family is on constant guard against the allergies we all have. That’s right, every single person in our house suffers from allergies. We get it all – itchy eyes, runny noses, persistent cough, scratchy throats, the whole bit. That’s why I’m excited about our new Oreck Tru Response air purifier. It helps us fight allergies in our homes year round.


Fighting Allergies All Day Every Day

The thing I love about our air purifier is that it’s on constant duty, pulling the allergens out of the air in our home. You see, no matter what you do, allergens get in. Whether it’s the dust, dust mites, and other indoor allergens that are constantly in the home or the outdoor allergens that we bring in with us when we come inside, allergens are everywhere. They’re everywhere, and they’re a constant pain in the neck. Our Oreck Tru Response helps protect us from those allergens by constantly purifying the air in our home.

Oreck’s Tru Response DustSense technology constantly monitors the air passing through its Truman Cell filtration system and works like a magnet to attract and capture dust and allergens from the air. At the same time, the Helios Shield filter combined with UV light reduces VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and helps reduce odors in the air. So basically this air purifier does everything to help keep our air fresh and clean.


Oreck Tru Response Specs

We already have an Oreck DualMax air purifier in our bedroom and we LOVE it. It’s a reliable, easy to clean, low maintenance way to clean the air and keep our room a comfortable haven for sleep. So I was excited to get this table top version for small rooms to use on a different floor. Right now I have it in my living room, but I might use it in my office too if I can ever find a counter space to put it on. Spring cleaning needs to happen in there – soon.

Oreck Tru Response air purifier WK 12500 was built for fighting allergies, and so far it’s doing wonders for our home. Take a look at the specs.

  • DustSence Technology monitors and detects the concentration of particulates in the air.
  • Air quality indication bar changes colors to let you easily determine the number of particles in your air.
  • Truman Cell filtration attracts and captures dust and allergens in the air.
  • Helios Shield system combines TiO2 filtration and UV light to reduce VOCs and control odors.
  • Filters never need to be replaced.
  • Clean filter indicator reminds you to clean the filter.
  • Built-in automatic turn off timer.
  • Customizable speed settings.
  • Night mode with Silence Technology dims the lights and sets fan speed to low for less distraction while you sleep.
  • Compact, portable design.
  • Designed for rooms like kitchens, dens, home offices, and bedrooms.
  • Suitable for rooms up to 23 square meters.

This might sound lame to you but I find it a fun gadget to have handy and love seeing how new innovations like this one benefit families like ours. The Oreck Tru Response air purifier WK 12500 series runs quietly and has a few cool bells and whistles as you can see above.

Fighting Allergies with Oreck Tru Response
