Top Five Smoke Air Purifiers

Best Air Purifiers for SmokeWhat do Benzene, chromium, cadmium, vinyl chloride, isocyanic acid, and arsenic have in common? They can be commonly found in wildfire & tobacco smoke, which makes effective smoke removal more than just filtering odors or the particles that traditional HEPA filters target.

While there are a variety of technologies out there to remove smoke, few have been proven as consistently effective as activated carbon. Activated carbon binds with contaminants to permanently remove them from the air you breathe. By factoring in effectiveness of removing chemical vapors and odors, with price, durability, brand reputation and particle filtration, we have come up with our list of the top 5 most effective air purifiers for smoke.

Top Smoke Air Purifier

$1,199.00

1. IQAir MultiGas GC

To be the top air purifier for smoke, an air purifier has to excel in several areas. The IQAir MultiGas GC excels in all of these: chemical filtration, particle filtration, durability, ease of use and overall value. What makes the MultiGas the ideal smoke air purifier is the activated carbon canisters. These four canisters are packed with a blend of bituminous coal-based activated carbon blended with pellets of impregnated alumina. The alumina pellets use oxidizing agents to break down the carcinogens commonly found in smoke, rendering them inert. The carbon is more porous than the more common coconut shell carbon and provides about two full years of odor adsorbing capabilities. The advanced controls provide more flexibility in setting schedule, fan speed, and provide you with a real-time filter use monitor. A durable ABS shell and leading brand reputation round out the IQAir MultiGas GC.

2. Austin HealthMate Plus

While the popular Austin HealthMate provides robust filtration of smoke, odors and some VOC's, the HealthMate Plus takes that a step further. With 60 sq. ft. of HEPA filter media, the Plus not only tackles particles but a blend of activated carbon with zeolite and potassium iodide adsorbs smoke odors while actually oxidizing the toxic chemicals found in tobacco and wildfire smoke. While some models may boast more carbon, the potassium iodide gives the HealthMate Plus the decided advantage by allowing it to destroy a wider variety of chemicals than just carbon alone. The filter life is an industry leading three to five years, and a sealed system ensures no air leakage. Casters allow for easy mobility and a non-woven polyester prefilter keeps large particles from clogging the HEPA/carbon filter. Constructed in the U.S. the steel-framed Austin is a durable smoke air purifier that provides years of consistent, reliable air filtration.


Blueair 603 Smoke Air Purifier Online

3. Blueair 603 SmokeStop Air Purifier

The Blueair 603 SmokeStop lives up to its moniker. As an air purifier dedicated to removing smoke and odors, the 603 can tackle some of the largest spaces with ease. Due to the design of the patented SmokeStop filters and an extremely powerful (yet quiet) fan, the 603 moves more air than comparable models. While the total amount of carbon, six pounds, isn't as much as other models, the potassium oxidizing agents that are infused in the carbon allow it break down a wide variety of chemicals that are common tobacco smoke. The controls are simple and filter changes require no tools. One big advantage that Blueair models have over other air purifiers is that they are very quiet, particularly on their lowest fan setting. Additionally, the 603 is the only model on this list that is Energy Star qualified.

4. Austin Bedroom Machine

Similar to the HealthMate, the Austin Bedroom Machine offers total air filtration in one easy-to-use package. With a full five stages of filtration, the Bedroom Machine targets particles, chemicals and VOC's. The heavy activated carbon filter removes odors and some chemicals while a military-grade HEGA carbon cloth targets the organic compounds and toxic chemicals commonly found in smoke. Two pre-filters and a true HEPA filter provide the full range of particle filtration. A sealed system reduces air leakage, and powder coated steel body/frame, and basic three speed control provide years a hassle-free way to purify the air in your home with little maintenance. Austin is also one of the few companies that offers a variety of color options to find the unit that best matches your room. Choose your color, plug it in, set it, and enjoy cleaner, purer air.

5. AllerAir 6000 DX Exec

AllerAir offers an extremely wide variety of air purifiers, and with hundreds of unique models available, their selection can be a bit overwhelming. Here at Achoo, we find that the AllerAir 6000 DX Exec is one of their best models for smoke filtration. The 6000 DX Exec represents a good balance between the amount of carbon, cost, and overall value. With the largest carbon bed of any air purifier we offer, the 36 lbs. of activated carbon offers excellent adsorption of chemicals and odors. The thicker bed allows for greater dwell time and better removal of impurities per air pass. The steel body ads extra weight to this heavy unit, but casters offset weight/mobility issues. Simple controls make use as easy as plugging the unit in and turning a dial. A large particle pre-filter and micro-HEPA filter traps particle allergens while extending the life of the machine. Available in three colors and made in Canada.
