Our Industry Experts Reveal Insider Information on Leading Home Smoke Eater Models...

Not all home smoke eaters are engineered equally! You would be amazed at the ineffectiveness of some of the leading ionic home air purifiers that are marketed on TV as being smoke and odor air cleaners. We've all seen the ads where the guy wipes a layer of dust off one of those "filterless" filters....  way too much hype! Not enough science. Not all smoke eater technologies are the same!  Whether it's HEPA, multi-gas, UV, or electrostatic, learn which technologies measure up in the real world without breaking the bank.

SmokeEaters.org went out into the Home Smoke Eater marketplace and identified the most reputable air cleaner manufacturers and asked their engineers and representatives to compare and review their best residential smoke air cleaners.

There are no other websites that offer this kind of information. Unlike most websites that only cater to trying to sell you one manufacturer's product line, we don't try to push any single maker of Home Smoke Eaters. We will work with you to help you find the right Residential Smoke Eater that is specifically for your needs. Below, we have compiled a helpful chart to serve as a tutorial about several brands and types of Home Smoke Eaters, complete with benefits, drawbacks, special features and other general information.
