Recently, we were introduced to Oransi—a line of air treatment products that focus on effective air purification with careful attention to green performance and modern designs. In fact, I actually got the opportunity to test drive two Oransi air purifiers: the Oransi v-hepa Air Purifier and the Oransi v-hepa Pro UV Air Purifier. I must admit that I quickly fell in love with these air purifiers. Naturally, when I found out that Oransi was introducing the Oransi v-hepa Plus—an upgraded version of the original v-hepa—I couldn’t wait to find out all of the details.
Featuring the same slim design (only 8 inches deep!) and neutral color palette as its predecessor, the Oransi v-hepa Plus air purifier has a few new tricks up its sleeve. The first change I noticed was the convenient addition of an electronic pushbutton control knob. The new control knob allows users to easily turn on the unit, set the timer, activate UV/ionizer operation, and adjust the fan speed.
The v-hepa Plus (also known as the Oransi OVHP44) also comes with a UV-C lamp and a PCO (photocatalytic oxidation) filter for enhanced airborne irritant elimination. A UV lamp is one of the most effective ways to destroy germs, bacteria, mold, and viruses that may be present in your environment. The v-hepa Plus’ UV-C lamp isn’t just handy for getting rid of harmful germs; it is also great for eliminating microorganisms captured by the air purifier’s HEPA filter.
To eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and aggravating odors, take advantage of the v-hepa Plus’ PCO filter. Coated with titanium oxide, when this filter is combined with light from the UV-C lamp, highly reactive ions and electrons are produced. These ions attach to chemical molecules, bacteria, and odor-causing compounds, killing them through oxidation. The combination of a true HEPA filter with powerful UV-C light and PCO filtration gives this air purifier the ability to effectively remove more than 98% of mold, pollen, dust, bacteria, and pet dander.
Oftentimes when a product is upgraded or replaced, it loses some of the functionality that you may have fallen in love with. Luckily, this isn’t the case with the Oransi v-hepa Plus. This air purifier still boasts:
- Super Quiet Operation
- Low Operating Costs
- A Washable Pre-Filter
- Compact, Lightweight Design
Plus, when you order your Oransi OVHP44 on or before December 31, 2010, you will receive 3 free filter replacements!
