Question Any of you use an air purifier indoors?

If it’s not warm enough to go out in my garden and smoke (where I am this is all seasons except summer) the only room I smoke in is my sitting/living room. But I’m one of those people who genuinely dislikes a smokey room. Lungs, fine, room, no. And I smoke a lot.

So I invested in an air purifier. It’s middle-high end of the road price-wise. The main cost is buying the filters, so in essence I’m renting the filter unit - there is an odour carbon filter and a HEPA filter. They work out $25 every 6 months.

I have it on the second highest of 3 settings, fan gives an audible hum but I can still enjoy music and movies over it.

Be interested to find out if anyone else uses one/them.

I use air purifiers too. When I change the filters I also clean the unit with isopropyl alcohol. But what controls odor best is Febreeze plug-ins. Unfortunately (not that I expected it to), it doesn't do anything for tar accumulating on the walls -- that's the biggest downside of smoking indoors, and why I limit my indoor smoking to only one room.

I hadnít thought of that, sounds like a good idea.

Yes plug-ins worked well for me in the past, I may re-invest to be honest. I gave mine away after a brief spell on smokeless tobacco. I found that citrus essential oil refills really cut through the odour.

I have an ionizer fan to keep smoke in check. Plus I get quality furnace filters which help big time.

Make sure your furnace is rated for the dense filters. Some are not and youíll shorten the life of the blower motor

I use an aluminum washable filter. Works surprisingly well and I will probably never have to replace it. I supplement that with dryer sheets in the vents

I forgot that I had two of these. Slightly more laborious than having a plug-in, granted. Does the job well though, in combo with a purifier.

My sister (a 2 pack a day smoker) will visit me in May, for a month. Since by then the windows will be closed for the summer, I'm considering an air purifier for my office-room, one of the two rooms in my house where I smoke (kitchen is the other). What should I be looking for, and what should I avoid? And how much should I be prepared to spend?
