Q: Holiday coziness question: We just moved to Berkeley from NYC and it seems that everyone, including us, has a fireplace. Berkeley is not exactly the most environmentally friendly place I'm realizing, recycling less than SF and with all this firewood stacked outside their houses. We're having our family over for Christmas and we think that's going to be a great time to indulge in a fire. However, the smell lingers forever and the particles are very unhealthy so I don't want to light up unless I have a good air purifier. The particles that the purifier need to be able to handle are very specific. Can you guys recommend an affordable one?
