If you are a smoker, then you will probably already be well aware that the smell of tobacco smoke sticks to everything, from carpets to curtains and everything in between. Not only does the smell linger unpleasantly, but it also contains a huge array of harmful chemicals. These chemicals will remain in the air of your home, affecting both smokers and non-smokers.
Aside from smoking outside, you are quite limited with what you can do to remove the smell of tobacco smoke from your home. However, there is one solution that should definitely be considered and that is to invest in an air purifier. There are different types of air purifiers available and only some will be suitable for getting rid of tobacco smoke and chemicals.
Here are a couple of the ways in which you can benefit from investing in an air purifier from your home if you are a smoker.
If you are planning on buying an air purifier with the purpose of removing tobacco smells, nicotine stains and chemicals from the air, then there are a few features that you should look for in order to get the best results. Here are a couple of factors to keep in mind.
To give you a better idea of what your options are, we decided to choose and review our top 3 air purifiers for smokers. Below you will find all of the information that you need to know.
To start off with, let’s take a look at the appearance of this particular air purifier from Pro Breeze. One of the things that we really liked about this one is its minimalist design. It is compact and slim in build, so would not look out of place in the home at all.
Upon starting it up, we were presented with the control panel. Highlighted by a blue LED backlight, the controls are very easy to see and use. From this control panel, you are able to adjust the speed, timer and sleep mode as well as switch the unit on and off. We really liked the touch buttons, they didn’t feel difficult to use at all.
One of the most impressive things about this air purifier is the five stage filtration system. It has 4 separate filters and a negative ion generator. Starting with the fine preliminary filter; this is where larger pollutants such as pollen and pet dander will collect so that they don’t damage the sensitive parts of the air purifier.
Next is the HEPA filter. It is this filter which will capture and absorb allergens such as dust and germs. The activated carbon filter is the one which will absorb any tobacco smells as well as any other unpleasant odours around the home. Finally, there is the cold catalyst filter which will absorb any harmful chemicals produced from smoking among other things.
As you can imagine, with these 4 filters in combination with the negative ion generator really help to remove the chemicals and smells associated with smoking from the home. In terms of value for money, we found this air purifier to be really affordable. We liked the ease of use and were very impressed with the results from such a small unit.
The first thing that we really liked about this particular air purifier is the fact that setup was so easy. It really was just a matter of plugging it in and we were ready to go. One of our first impressions of this unit was how sleek it looked. It has a matte black finish and at the top of the unit you will find the display and controls.
We did notice that the unit itself is quite large in comparison to some of the models in the same price range, but considering the amount of features that this one has to offer this is not something that we would complain about. In terms of controls, the touch panel is incredibly simple and easy to use.
From the control panel you can adjust speeds, timers, the ioniser and more. When it comes to the performance of the air purifier, we were very impressed by the five stage filtration system. To start off with, there is an activated carbon filter which traps any large airborne particles. Next, there is the HEPA filter which removes smaller pollutants from the air.
The third and fourth stages of filtration involve using a UV light to completely kill any bacteria, which is a great addition which really maximises the effectiveness. Finally, there is the negative ion generator which leaves the air feeling much cleaner and fresher. We were really surprised by how much the filters collected from the air after just a few uses and we definitely noticed a difference in the quality of the air around the home.
Another thing that we really liked about this one is the fact that it has 5 different speed settings. Generally, you will only get 3 settings at most. We found that the lowest speed was very quiet indeed and still performed well. The higher speeds would be perfect during peak pollen season. The highest speed does get a little noisy, but nothing too major.
Overall, we were really pleased with this piece of kit. It is affordable, stylish and performs incredibly efficiently.
Right out of the box, the first thing that we really liked about this air purifier was how compact it is. It is slim line and small, making it perfect for any room in the home. After plugging in the unit, we were ready to take a proper look at it. At the top of the unit, you will find a black strip. This is where the touch controls are. From here, you are able to control the speed, timer, switching the unit on and off and sleep mode.
First of all, we thought that we would take a look at the sleep mode. What we were looking for here was the noise level of the air purifier whilst in this mode. We were pleasantly surprised to notice that it was virtually unnoticeable and sleeping with it running in this mode was no trouble at all. At the lowest speed, the noise is still very quiet and it is still tolerable at higher speeds too. This unit has 3 speed settings so you can adjust them according to the environment at the time.
The Levoit Air Purifier features a three stage filtration system. It has a fine preliminary filter which captures larger particles such as pollen and pet dander. The true HEPA filter behind this one is very powerful and collected a large amount of dust and pollutants within just a few uses. Finally, there is the activated carbon filter which absorbs odour. We found that it completely eliminated any pet smells that were lingering around the home.
We used this particular air purifier in both small and large rooms with equally impressive results. We have to say that we have absolutely no complaints at all with this one, which is why it takes our number 1 spot.
