fresh air for february :: win a $499.99 Oreck

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.
listen ladies and gentleman(?), we sure do have fresh air at our house these days.  would you love some fresh air, too, to go along with this lovely new month of February?  i thought so.
let me introduce you to this beauty.  meet Oreck's brand new AirInstinct 200 Air Purifier. Oreck contacted me and asked if they could send me one to review as well as one to pass on to you.  let me think about it, YES. now is your chance to win one, valued at $499.99.
(photo and air purifier courtesy of Oreck.  giveaway facilitated by me.)

the AirInstint is a new kind of smart filter, using pre-filter, anti-odor, and true HEPA technologies to monitor and manage air particles.  through a continuous automatic monitoring of the dust, pollen, allergens, pet dander and smoke in the air, the purifier adjusts it's air flow speed accordingly.   the AirInstinct cleans your air, removing 99.7% of the particles and odors. it's quiet, efficient and energy star certified. plus, Oreck backs their product with a limited five year warranty. the filter lasts for up to three years, so the up-keep is very minimal and inexpensive.

i knew my kids would be very curious about our new machine.  Oreck knew they would too.  which is why there is a vented security panel that keeps little fingers out of the fan's way.  also, when the machine is opened to change the filter, it automatically turns itself off.  thanks, Oreck for watching out for the littlest of humans!
we really love the fresh air the AirInstinct gives our home.  it brings a fresh smell, that i can only liken to being way up high in the mountains with nature, reminding me of the good ol' days living in the Sierra Nevadas.  i have a doctor certified dust allergy, so i am really thankful for the continuous dust monitoring. we live in Charleston, which happens to be one of the worst places for pollen, so this year when Spring comes in full force i won't be scared. : ) we also have a furry little boston terrier that lives with us; yay for less pet dander thanks to the purifier!  not to mention, it looks incredibly sleek and takes up very little space.  a win, all the way around.
