Best Smoke Purifier – In this article we will see why smoke is so bad for our health, why children can be the worst affected, and what the best air purifiers for smoke are to help deal with this problem.

Then, we will look at True HEPA air purifiers and see why they are especially good at treating smoke-filled rooms. You may be wondering if all air purifiers are the same, or whether they work at all.


1.Blueair Classic 680i

When it comes to filtering smoke out of the air, the higher the CADR rating, the more effective the filtration, or efforts to remove particles from the air. If you’re looking for an air purifier with a high CADR rating, consider opting for the Blueair Classic 680i.

This model works in rooms up to 700 square feet and has a 450 CADR rating. You can even control the device on your phone via the Blueair Friend app.

The system weighs more than 43 pounds. But it’s also on wheels, so it’s easier to move between rooms. Some customers note a chemical odor during the first few uses.

Pros & Cons

6.HATHASPACE Air Purifier

HEPA and activated carbon filters work together to trap particles and gasses contained in smoke — this is also sometimes referred to as hybrid filtration. One highly rated example of this in action is the Hathaspace Smart True HEPA Air Purifier 2.0.

This air purifier is made for large spaces up to 1,500 square feet. Note that while this air purifier has a higher price tag than some on the market, it comes with more features, such as a touchscreen and easy-to-read air quality scores. It’s also CARB and Energy Star certified.

Pros & Cons

7.Alen 75i Air Purifier

The Alen BreatheSmart Classic is designed to purify the air in a 1,300-square-foot space in 30 minutes. It’s also one of the pricier options on this list. However, it comes with additional features, such as longer-lasting filters, less noise, and color-coded sensors.

While highly rated by customers on Amazon, there are a few complaints about the manufacturer’s warranty. Also, since the device is made for large spaces, it weighs over 30 pounds and doesn’t have wheels, which could make it harder to move from room to room.

Pros & Cons


Best Smoke Purifier – In many parts of the world people still cook with coal, wood, or dung which just like tobacco, releases dangerous smoke particles into the home which can trigger allergens and cause illness.

In the Western world, you are unlikely to cook with wood or dung, but you still have the risk from BBQ smoke, burnt food, and fires… hazards which are often overlooked.
