The Perfect Compliment to Your Cigar Shop or Lounge is a Great Cigar Smoke Eater.


Using the right cigar smoke eater will reduce complaints... If you're a non smoker, then cigar smoke is more of an irritant to you than regular cigarette smoke. We all know that cigar smokers like to enjoy their cigars but are often told to step outside or to extinguish it.  Having the right cigar smoke eater will allow your cigar smoking customers to enjoy their favorite cigar without the complaints!  We have talked with the leading industry experts of cigar smoke eaters and have researched the different types of cigar smoke eater technology.  With the right cigar smoke eater, your customers can enjoy their cigars at your establishment, rather than being shunned by the general public.

There are so many companies trying to sell cigar smoke eaters based on the "bells and whistles" rather than their actual ability to remove cigar smoke from the air.  We at SmokeEaters.org have gotten together with engineers and experts that work for the top selling cigar smoke eater manufacturers, and have collaborated to give you these reviews and chart to help you decide which cigar smoke eater is best for your application.

SmokeEaters.org is different from your ordinary cigar smoke eater site. We have information on more brands and styles of cigar smoke eaters than any other place on the web.  We deal with many different manufacturers of air purification equipment, which enables us to offer professional, non-biased recommendations. We tell you the facts, plain and simple.  Once you have answered the important questions, you can then decide for yourself what is going to be the most effective solution, and that is why we're here... to help you make the right choice.

Tobacco smoke tends to linger between the 11-13 foot level, so for rooms in which the ceiling height exceeds that level, you only need to measure for 13 ft. and below.  As a general rule of thumb, 8-10 air changes per hour are needed to effectively clean an area of moderate to mildly concentrated tobacco smoke.  Cigar smoke is more dense than cigarette smoke, so keep that in mind when calculating your air changes.  Also, if media filtration is chosen as the solution to your smoke issue, you may wish to "oversize" the application slightly, as airflow will decrease as the filters load with particles.

Sometimes it is a good idea to choose multiple smaller air cleaners rather than one large smoke eater, even if the airflow is adequate.  The reason for this is simply creating effective airflow patterns.  For instance, in an oddly shaped room, coverage area is bound to decrease if the smoke eater must battle corners and partitions for clean air delivery.  In this case, it would be more beneficial to install multiple units to operate in tandem with one another.
