Good Questions: My Neighbor's Smoke is Killing Me!

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

Help! Second-hand smoke is invading my apartment.

I have a new neighbor and her nonstop smoking is making me sick. Literally.

I'd pay anything for a good air purifier ( I am that miserable), I just need to know which one to get.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks! Barbara

Dear Barbara,

This is a real bummer. The best answers we know of are really sealing whatever the cracks are between your apartments and also getting a good air purifier. While good ones can be expensive, we have heard remarkable things about this one: the IQ air purifier. We got this tip from a friend who was also suffering from smoke difficulties. If you want cheaper, we'd also recommend a big Honeywell air purifier with a big carbon filter - which is what really kills the smell.
