It’s here! It’s here! A new year, 12 chapters and 365 chances to make a difference in your life and those around you. Isn’t that an amazing way to look at it? Based on our enthusiasm and striving for change in January, I’m not opposed to a half-new-year on July 1st to re-evaluate and focus once again as well.
That said, I’m starting off 2018 with new vigor, focus (my theme for 2018 by the way), and definitely an itch to get my house in order for the new year. Purge, for sure, but balance it as well. Eliminate clutter and take care of what’s inside these four walls.
Inside these four walls, it can get a little stuffy, dusty and well, aroma-esque to put it mildly during the winter months. I love opening my windows in the spring and letting fresh air in but during the winter, we’re breathing the same air day in and day out, hopefully cycled through by our air exchange on our furnace as best it can. Because I have kids with asthma, love to cook year-round, and have a labradoodle, there are plenty of reasons why an air purifier is a sound investment for our household – for any household, really.
The Oreck Air Response Air Purifier has been a welcome addition to our household over the holidays with extra people in the house for gatherings, more cooking than usual, and of course us being homebound after Christmas when the temperatures plunged and no one was going anywhere! On sight, I loved this new home appliance because of how seamlessly it fits into our home decor. Previous air purifiers we’ve had were black and stood out. The sleek chrome colour matches our kitchen (smart design, on Oreck’s end!) and doesn’t stand out at all.
Designed for medium rooms like kitchens, living rooms and large bedrooms, the Oreck Air Purifier captures 99% of particles down to 0.3 microns – things like dust, allergens, pet dander and odors – making it the perfect household appliance for our main floor. Just check out these features:
Air Response is just that – the Oreck Air Response Air Purifier features DustSense which automatically monitors, detects and responds to harmful particles in your air.
One feature that I really like is the Air Quality Indicator Bar; it’s one thing to plug in an air purifier and walk away, hopefully having it work as designed, but it’s quite another to get an instant look at the air quality in your home at all times just by taking a look at the color on the bar. There’s no need to worry if the color changes to red for high – it just means your little Oreck is working hard to clean the air around you and your loved ones. Interesting thought for me upon noticing the color change one day from low to medium – without the air purifier I’d 1) have no idea the air quality had changed to that degree and 2) be doing nothing at all to improve it.
Other cool features include a replacement filter indicator and a built-in timer with auto shut-off so you can simply set it to run for daytime hours, for example, and not run through the night (or vice versa, I suppose, depending on your preference). You can definitely leave it on during daytime hours, because of the Silence Technology – I can’t hear a thing when it’s on!
