Smoke eater

Does anybody know of a decent one? Just for myself. Not a half dozen people. Too cold to smoke out side, but just had the house remolded inside and don't want to screw it up.

I was telling Shadow (Bill) just a few months ago...my $500 rabbit air barely keeps up with one cigar in a 10x20 room. Add another person, 10 minutes you will be vacating.

I've had a smoke room for 15 years now, and I have tried all kinds of things. but nothing works like fresh air in, stale air out. I have a natural gas heater that can keep up with the cold air intrusion when I crack a window and put the box fan on in the window across the room to vent the smoke.



In the summer, in Louisiana, we sweat. A lot.

I have a Hunter air purifier with a HEMP Filter and it does a great job.

Smoke eaters will make it better, but an exhaust fan really is the only way to do it. I have a room in my basement that was a coal room. Had an exhaust fan installed and never have problems with the wife. My buddy comes over and we can smoke our brains out and it's fine.

I'm installing this in man cave this weekend it has enough CFMs to take car of any amount of smoke.

I looked into purifiers but i just dont think you can clean cigar smoke and reviews on these things dont sound good.

So im putting my leather couch under exhaust vent and it should work well.

That's similar to what I have and it works 100%. The only thing that I would add is that after you put out the cigar, let it run for a few minutes. Other than that it's awesome.

Ask your old partners if they've confiscated any of these lately: https://www.amazon.com/AC-Infinity-C...ZTZ/ref=sr_1_7




Inline duct fans are a LOT quieter.

Is that what you use in your walk in? I'd love to make the garage room into a man cave with one of those. Drill a hole in the concrete blocks and it could work!

AC infinity is a good fan. But on high they evacuate 700cfm!
Your heating / air bill will skyrocket if you suck that much air out of your house (to be replaced by outside air through whichever cracks it can infiltrate...)
I know from experience. We exhaust 2 laser engravers with one of those. The second the laser is done, that bitch is OFF.
