WOW!! This is HUGE!
We have a couple Oreck purifiers, they did AMAZING for us the first 3 1/2 years, but it was definitely time for a new purifier. They still work, but they are slowing down and getting dirtier faster and you can just tell they were dieing.
We still have one in our bedroom, but the VERY kind folks over at Rabbit Air were very generous enough to send us the BIO GS-SPA 421A Ultra Quiet purifier! We got it in the Metallic Blue
So it is MUCH bigger than the Oreck we had. The Oreck had to sit up on a table, well on a storage bin, and this can sit right on the floor. That's awesome!
It's also very light so we can move it room to room if needed. I almost burned down the house the other day, okay not quite, but my oven was burning. I moved it into the kitchen. Put it on the turbo feature and my room was completely cleared out in 3 minutes!! If I would've just used open windows alone, it probably would've taken 20 minutes or longer. And the smell was gone in that same amount of time.
I love this purifier. It has an indicator for particles coming into the machine and an indicator for smells!! When I was clearing out smoke the smell was All the way lit up. It was stinky!
It has a lot of features on it that our Oreck didn't have. It has a timer. It has 4 speeds AND turbo. Turbo lasts 30 minutes and then shuts off. Our Oreck nly had 3 speeds. It also has a pollen mode, letting you know when there is pollen in the air. A light will come on letting you know when the machine needs to be cleaned and another light for when the filter needs to be replaced. The best part? It has a REMOTE!!! I can control it from my couch! How awesome is that!!
So to clean it, you just need a vacuum and some water. Our Oreck? It required a special cleaner which was $14 and lasted 2-4 cleanings. Well we had 2 machines, so once a month or so we were spending $14. This machine is easy to clean and once every 1.5 years the filter needs to be replaced and it is $30!!! And the Hepa Filter needs to be replaced every 3 years and it is $46. UM, WORTH IT!
So here is the Dog fur I peeled off the pre filter right before Avery's party so just over a week ago
Here is our pre filter about 4 weeks after having it in the house
And here it is after vacuumed and how it's supposed to look
So I'm surprised it actually wasn't DIRTY and was just dog hair filled. Bella's cage is right next to this purifier. I want it that way until she's completely out of the cage. This is bad. I'm so glad we don't have all that fur flying through the house. It collects in my kitchen enough as it is!
I'm so happy with this purifier.
And I will say since we've moved into this house over 2 years ago, I haven't dusted once. WOW!! Never needed too.
