The longer cigarette or tobacco smoke goes uncontrolled, the more polluted the air quality becomes — which is why we recommend implementing home smoke eaters. When smoking in a home or residential dwelling, the smoke from cigarettes, cigars, and other tobacco products gets trapped and settles on furniture and surfaces resulting in foul odors and unsafe air quality.
Air quality is essential in all homes, regardless of apartment, condo, townhouse, older home, new construction, etc. The air filters used in home HVAC systems capture dander, pollen, lint, and other air contaminants ranging between 3 -10 microns, but the particulate that makes up cigarette smoke varies between 0.01-1.0 microns — ultimately requiring a higher efficiency solution. Home smoke eaters are designed to effectively remove micron-sized air contaminants like smoke, allergens, asthma irritants, odors, and more.
In most cases, the homeowner decides if smoking is permitted on their property or not (some states prohibit smoking in private multi-rental properties). If you allow smoking, it's beneficial to invest in a home smoke eater solution — when children and nonsmoking adults live in homes where cigarette smoke is present, any substance they breathe, touch, or consume can become a health risk. While HVAC air filters are a good option for general air quality, smokers and individuals who have allergies or other respiratory health issues will benefit from a smoke eater, air filtration type system. Austin Air Cleaners feature a 360-degree intake system to draw air into all of its sides, passing it through 4-stage filter technology.
Austin Air Cleaners' portable and affordable home smoke eaters effectively remove cigarette and tobacco smoke from the air. The four-stage filter technology that Austin Air Cleaners use to remove air contaminants includes a large particle pre-filter for dust, hair, pet dander, and other large particulate, a medium particle pre-filter for mold, spores, and pollen, up to 15 pounds of activated carbon, and zeolite to remove tobacco and cigarette odors, and 60 square-feet of Certified HEPA to remove 99.97% of all particles larger than 0.3 microns. This true HEPA filtration is the same used in cleanroom facilities and hospitals.
Austin Air is sold in more than 100 countries and has outperformed more than 100 other air purifiers in government tests. The Medical Grade HEPA used in all Austin Air filters has been independently certified to remove 99.97% of particles. Product tests on flow and vapor, gas, and sub-micron particle removal have been performed by Battelle Laboratories, one of the world’s most respected testing labs.
