Another Air Purifier Shuffle

The refurbished Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier that I purchased from Oreck, had been getting noisier and noisier. It is down to the 'silence' setting, and making way too much noise.

OTOH, the same model Oreck that I purchased on Woot.com, has been working fine. But, with the Surround Air unit in the laundry being bigger than I had thought it would be, and that it has the advantage of remembering its state when it looses power...I felt that it might be better suited in another location. Especially since I had purchased the APC BE550R for the laundry area, and to keep the Air Purifier in the on state was a consideration.

So, what I did was retire the noisy Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier in my 'computer' room. And, replace it with the quiet Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier that was in my living room.

I then moved the Surround Air purifier from the laundry area to the living room.

President's Day Sales got me.

I guess I forgot that a big sales event was coming up....but, I happened to look at Sears and that air purifier that I wanted was on sale. The idea for another air purifier shuffle is forming.

But, then I was thinking of a UPS to filter out the small power glitches....and once again, sales this weekend. I first went to best buy, to find a cheap UPS...and saw that the 1500VA Geek Squad UPS was on sale. So, I started trying to map where that UPS would go, and it it free up a small UPS. Then somebody mentioned that Staples featured a small UPS for cheaper and better than the the one I was looking at from Best Buy.

So, after some though, I decided to go with that UPS (APC 550VA BE550R)...$20 off for $40 before $10 rebate. Decided to pad the order with 3 cases of bottled water to get free shipping.

The Sears EnviroSense Air Purifier has the problem in that it defaults to off after the slightest power interruption. While the Surround Air that I recently got, seems to have no such hangups.

So a small UPS to keep the EnviroSense Air Purifier happy seemed the fix to that. Though not sure I want the noise of UPS in the bedroom. Of course, the laundry right by the bedroom door...so it isn't really a big fix. Nobody said I had thought this through extensively. But, I do plan to get a big UPS eventually, and it'll be a refurbed SmartUPS to back up the other half of HT setup. But, I guess that will have to wait to later in the year.

Though I suppose what I could do for it being a small cheap UPS...is remove the noise maker.

Hmmm....we'll see... U-(

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
