Don't know which air purifier suits your needs? Try
the new achoo!
purifier calculator to determine the best air
purifier for your specific allergy, room size, and noise
sensitivity. We created the air purifier calculator in response to
several customers who were searching for air purifiers
for very specific purposes, and realized it is
appropriate for everyone considering an
air purifier purchase! For example,
one client, a concert pianist with a
Pomeranian, wanted an air purifier in a
ballroom where she performed concerts for friends and
family – so she wanted something that was quiet, fairly
large-scale, and efficient at removing pet dander. She
also wanted something that wouldn't stand out to her
guests. The air purifier calculator recommended a
Blueair 601 – an attractive,
super-quiet energy-efficient air purifier. Not sure

The Today Show
The Today Show recently aired a segment all about
dust mites in pillows. We've published part of the
transcript here. This is an edited conversation between
Today Show anchor Matt Lauer and Dr. Philip Tierno,
Professor of Clinical Biology and Immunology at New York
University's Tisch Hospital.
Matt Lauer: You probably know your pillows and bed sheets
have dust mites on them, but are you aware you're sleeping on
a miniature ecosystem? A recent study out of England suggests
that pillows harbor dangerous bacteria and fungus. The monster
may not be under your bed, but actually in it. So in a home
we're talking indoor air pollution (dust mites and other
allergens) – these can be a huge source of
Dr. Philip Tierno: Absolutely. Huge source.
One of the dirtiest places in the home. In the top three.
Matt Lauer: Let's talk about mattresses and pillows –
what they can contain. I'm going to go to a graphic here and
just show a partial list of what you can find on a typical
pillow: human skin cells, bodily secretions and excretions,
animal hair and dander, bacteria and fungi, dust mites,
perspiration, insect parts, food particles, cosmetics, lotions
and oils. So is it the dirtiest room in the house?
Philip Tierno: It's actually not. The kitchen is the dirtiest
room. But the bedroom is a close second.
All right let's talk about a couple of facts. After five years
of using a pillow, ten percent of the weight of that pillow is
made up of dust mites and dust mite feces (show graphic of
crawling bugs), and every ten years the weight of an average
mattress doubles because of the same thing? Is that harmful to
Dr. Philip Tierno: Absolutely. You're inhaling that
eight hours per day, every day of your life, if you don't have
the proper protection on your bedding.
Matt Lauer: So
if you have allergies, you have asthma, this can really
complicate the issue?
Dr. Philip Tierno: Yes. It can
exacerbate both of those and it can even cause allergies later
on, according to some researchers.
