Q: My Neighbor Smokes A Lot, And The Awful Smell Keeps Coming Through My Walls, a Situation That Gives Me Headaches And Wakens My Allergies. Will These Units Solve My Issues?

A: Yes these air purifiers neutralize all particles the size of weed smoke, cigarette, pipe, and cigar. As a renter or homeowner, you can be exposed to smoke from smokers, from coal, and other smoke sources. It can be your house guest, housemate, or neighbor. Maybe you are a heavy smoker, and thus, you would like to make sure your visitors will not leave with a tobacco smell on them. Most air purifiers for smoke have the True HEPA Filter that captures 99.97% of dust and allergens as small as .3 microns and the charcoal filter that reduces common odors from pets, smoking, and cooking.

A: It varies among air purifiers. Some are much more energy-efficient than others. For example, HEPA air purifiers consume 50 to 200 watts of electricity. Thus, it can be quite expensive since it absorbs more energy than a standard air purifier. The difference is that HEPA air purifiers, for example, offer you quality air purification systems whereas most regular systems might cause more problems than good.
