Have you tightened your house to get rid of drafts? If so, indoor air quality may be less than pure.

The Oreck XL Professional Air Purifier is a small, table-top unit -- measuring 16" x 10" x 5" -- that can filter 900 square feet in an hour. It uses a combination of mechanical, electronic and electrostatic filters to remove mold, pet hair, dust mites, cigarette smoke and particulate matter as small as 0.1 microns. It also captures and kills bacteria, fungi and viruses. Price is $349.95 and shipping is free (September 2004). Look for model AIR8B.
