Easy Vaporizing With Extreme

Released to the mass market in 2008 by the renowned Canadian vaporizer manufacturer, Arizer, the Extreme Q Vaporizer easily won customers’ heart by giving better, user-friendly unit design, faster heat up time and a range of other useful features that were not available in the previous models. With upgraded unit that is equipped with triple heat sensors, well-designed remote controller and an AC adapter, the Extreme Q Vaporizer offers easy controlling and cleaning. In fact, it is the only vaporizer device today to have a remote controlled activation system.

The stainless steel Extreme Q is lightweight and highly portable. Its upper part sits securely on a lower stainless steel base with LCD display screen and function buttons on it. When you purchase the Extreme Q Vaporizer, you do not just purchase an ordinary vaporizer. This vaporizer could work in a three different ways: as a potpourri warmer, as an oil diffuser, and as an aromatherapy vaporizer. The three-in-one Extreme Q Vaporizer comes with a Potpourri Dish and a Potpourri sample to get you started. Average heat-up time is about 2 to 3 minutes, and the Vaporizer temperature could go from as low as 104 degree Fahrenheit to 400 degree Fahrenheit. Meanwhile, cooling down time is also fast, about 2 minutes each time.

Speaking of the temperature, the Extreme Q Vaporizer digital temperature control and auto timer allows user to utilize different types of herbs to vaporize and automate the timer. Its auto timer allows for auto shut off feature that allows the vaporizer to shut off by itself up to 4 hours from the time you turn on the vaporizer, according to your auto timer customization. The super-long vapor whip works to provide traditional vaporizer experience, while the inert tubing (balloon fill system) allows for different densities of the vapor filling according to your preferences. Extreme Q balloon fill system, combined with three speed follower system allows for rich vaporization experience.

To get things started, simply turn on the Extreme Q and set the temperature to its highest setting for about 30 minutes to fully eliminate (burn out) the manufacturer’s packing oils on the Extreme Q Vaporizer. You may put your favorite herbs to the Extreme Q Vaporizer Pyrex cyclone bowl and adjust the temperature to 350 degrees, which is a good starting temperature for vaporization. Let it sit about 1-2 minutes before you attach the Extreme Q Vaporizer extra-long whip.

Back to the vaporizer, the LCD display’s control panel allows user to check and set the temperature, fan speed, timer, and actual temperature every now and then. You can even choose whether to view the Extreme Q temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit. The Extreme Q remote control also allows for easy activation of the vaporizer from a distance, the way you want it to: from changing the fan speed, temperature, timer, to the LCD light on the base, operation is as easy as 1-2-3. This vaporizer comes with a lifetime warranty that is limited to normal use for the heating element and the LCD display.

Smoking Ban Affected the Electrical Industry

A significant increase in sales of outdoor lighting products such as floodlights has been witnessed since the ban, with sales rising by 40% as drinkers go outside. With the smoking ban now well in force, clubs and pubs have been reporting that unpleasant odors like sweat and stale beer – formerly masked by cigarette smoke – are highly noticeable. As a result, in addition to an increased demand for outdoor heating and lighting since the ban, there is also a greater need for ventilation systems.

There are important decisions to be made when selecting outdoor heating and indoor ventilation units, while keeping an ever-watchful eye on tightening purse strings.

A significant increase in sales of outdoor lighting products has been witnessed since the ban, with sales rising by 40% as drinkers go outside. However this is not the only change, as sales of outdoor heating products have also surged in a bid to keep smokers drinking at their favourite local instead of staying at home.

While the majority of contractors have spotted the obvious opportunities this brings, recommending the wide variety of outdoor heating equipment available, many are still missing out on the additional key factor to consider – effective controls.

Providing an off delay after the last observed movement can save an average of 80% on energy wasted. Controls need to be a vital part of any installation, ensuring appliances are only operational when needed. With the recent rise in energy costs, it is not environmentally or commercially astute to have the heating and lighting on from 8pm until closing time and so by choosing to install PIRs or thermostatic controls, businesses are ensuring that energy is used only when required – reducing both energy costs and the carbon footprint.

This need can be easily met by wall mounted PIR sensors, which detect presence by passive infrared, effectively enhanced for the smallest of movements. Providing an off delay after the last observed movement can save an average of 80% on energy wasted. Microwave sensors are another option open to installers as these devices are directional presence detectors with built in photocell use, utilizing microwave technology and featuring a movement detector.

Time delay switches also allow pubs to activate heating only when the outdoor area is in use. These have been in operation for many years, used in less frequented areas or those where entry and egress is at different points. During the last few years with a focus on energy efficiency, these have been revamped. Gone are the pneumatic timers that slowly released before cutting the power, now they are electronic and fully programmable to whatever time setting is required.

The additional benefit with heat recovery systems is that they can recover up to 95% of the heat normally lost from the building…

Programmable thermostats also offer an alternative way to regulate how long outdoor heating is in operation, with independent time settings, easy to use menu controls and set on/off periods available.

With controls being the priority outdoors, ventilation systems are now becoming a concern for pubs and clubs indoors, as they seek to combat stale odors, which were previously masked by tobacco smoke. Food odors coming from the kitchen, as well as smells from toilets and stale beer spilled onto carpets, now need to be extruded out of the building, as cigarette smoke no longer masks these pungent aromas.

The indoor air quality has therefore changed substantially and as a result where a refurbishment is needed many pubs and clubs have moved away from traditional ventilation systems and are installing air conditioning units and air handling products, as they allow more control and a better quality of air. However where this is simply not an option, establishments are upgrading their ventilation to combat the problem, whilst simultaneously reducing their energy costs.

The industry has seen a substantial increase in the sale of more energy efficient ventilation choices. LoWatt products are especially popular, as apart from efficiently removing stale air, they also offer up to 80% energy savings – a welcome additional benefit with soaring energy bills looking set to stay.

Heat recovery units are also starting to be introduced into pubs and clubs as they offer the ability to remove odors but at the same time recover the heat. These systems are designed to completely change all the air at least once every couple of hours (and this can be increased when the demand requires), continually replacing the stale odors with fresh, warm, clean, filtered air. The additional benefit with heat recovery systems is that they can recover up to 95% of the heat normally lost from the building through trickle vents and other breakout points in the building’s structure.

Now a year after the smoking ban was introduced, instead of just focusing on heating products, installers and contractors increasingly need to look at the bigger picture in order to fully maximize the profit margins available. In terms of the outdoors, this includes the wide variety of controls and sensors available for such areas to prevent energy from being wasted and energy bills increasing unnecessarily. While indoors, energy efficient ventilation systems need to be the predominant focus, providing the easiest and most cost effective way to effectively eradicate any odors unveiled by the removal of tobacco and ensure a fresh, welcoming environment for drinkers.

Tips to Get Rid of Cigarette Smell

Getting Rid of Cigarette Smoke Smell for Smokers

While researching this topic, I asked a relative for some practical advice to rid my house of cigarette smoke. Their answer was immediate and to the point: QUIT SMOKING! Who isn’t tired of hearing that one? The truth is that cigarette smoke permeates into our furniture, our carpets, our walls, our windows, and just about every other nook and cranny in our homes. Us smokers are generally unaware of the smell. The same problem exists in our cars. There are large numbers of people who are allergic to cigarette smoke, or suffer some very serious breathing issues when they come into contact with it. Even the lingering smell of cigarette smoke left in a home or a car by its previous occupants is not just noticeable, but may be close to intolerable to a non-smoker.

So if you’re not ready to kick the habit just yet, let’s explore some methods of controlling the cigarette smoke in our environments. Who knows, the next person to bask in your odor may be a hot date or prospective employer and if they don’t smoke, a noticeable odor will definitely make an impression.

Get the Smoke Out!

If you smoke inside, devise a system that pulls the smoky air outside of your home so it doesn’t have time to set on your surroundings such as smoking in front of a window fan that is set to expel air from the room. Despite the people who feel second hand smoke is a health risk even if you are smoking outside in a wind storm, the smoke needs to be trapped inside an enclosed area to deposit its odor.

Make a Smoker’s Lounge

If you have any rooms in your home which are seldom used, consider making one your smoker’s lounge and furnish it accordingly. This room will wreak, but it will also keep you from stinking up the rest of your home. Better yet, set up shop on your porch or patio to keep the stink out of your house entirely.
Purify the Air

There are tons of air purifiers on the market that claim to remove cigarette smoke and odor from the air before it gets a chance to turn your windows yellow. Many of them call themselves “ozone” based air cleaners. They run the gambit from crap to somewhat effective, but even the best ones only work in the room where they are placed. If you only have an occasional smoke then a good air purifier might be just what you are after, but for daily smokers these will only drain your wallet along with your electricity.

Mind Your Butts

A single ashtray can stink up a room almost as quickly as a lit cigarette. You can fight this menace by placing an absorbent substance in your ashtrays. This works both inside your home, and in your car. Baking soda works wonderfully, just pour enough in your ash tray to submerge your butts and use it to extinguish and bury the tip of your cigarettes when you are finished with them. This is not going to solve the problem 100%, but it will help. It will not only help diminish the smell of an ashtray full of extinguished butts, but will also draw some of the smoky odor out of the surrounding air. It is certainly a lot cheaper than putting an “ozone generating, state of the art titanium based corona and ultra violet light” air cleaner in every room of your house. Even if you can plug one into the cigarette lighter of your car, you’re still going to need to unplug it to light your next cigarette. Ashtrays with air-tight lids will also do the trick.

Your Clothing and Your Breath

If you find yourself in a situation where you really need to keep your person free of cigarette smoke smell, but you want to light up regardless then here’s what you do. First, smoke outside facing away from the wind, upwind from any other smokers in the vicinity, if you have an overcoat with you, wear it. This will keep most of the smoke away from your clothing. After you’ve finished your stogie, remove your coat and stand out in the wind a little longer to flush your person with fresh air. If it’s not particularly windy, take a brisk walk. As for your breath, the best you can do is brush your teeth, gargle with a strong mouthwash, and follow that up with the strongest mint you can handle.

Fall in Love with a Fellow Smoker

You might as well face it. Your body, your clothes, and most of all your breath are going to smell like cigarettes. Also, your teeth are going to turn a bit yellow. Cigarette smoke can be removed from the body and your clothing with normal washing. You can use whitening toothpaste, brush three times a day, use lots of mouthwash, and visit the dentist daily for professional teeth cleaning and this will remove all traces of cigarette smoke from your body, your clothes, and your breath… until about ten minutes later when you light up your next Marlboro.

Cigarette smoke smell can be reduced, and it is a polite thing to try, but as long as you smoke, the problem of their lingering odor will exist, and non-smokers will be unhappy with it. Oh well.
Getting Rid of Cigarette Smoke Smell for Non-Smokers

If you are a non-smoker, and have become the owner of a home, car, book, or sofa that once belonged to a smoker, you are likely here because you want to remove that awful cigarette smoke smell. Here are some suggestions:

Cigarette Smoke Smell in Furniture

* The Fabreeze Controversy

When confronted with any odor on furniture, curtains, or bed linens, the natural thing to do is reach for a deodorizer such as Fabreeze. Some argue that this simply masks the odor temporarily and it will return as soon as the spray product evaporates. There have also been reports of breathing problems associated with the use of fabreeze and other deodorizers. Others swear it doesn’t work anyway. It just turns the odor into a disgusting blend of smoke and the great outdoors. If the odor your battling is very weak, it’s worth a try. If it’s strong then don’t even bother.

* Get it Steam Cleaned

Cigarette smoke smell in fabrics emanates from tar ash and oil deposits left in it’s fibers. In order to remove the smell, you need to remove these deposits. Unfortunately, when cigarette smoke condenses onto something, the resulting ‘goo’ is very, very stubborn. If you’ve ever cleaned (scraped) this residue off of glass or painted walls you know exactly how stubborn it can be – imagine that same goo stuck in every fiber of the piece of furniture you wish to clean. The bottom line is that household cleaners just won’t cut it, hire some professionals to come and clean it for you. Make sure they use a van-mounted steam cleaner and tell them exactly what your objective is so they can use the appropriate cleaning solution.

* Low Budget?

Completely cover the piece of furniture you’re cleaning with baking soda and then rub it and pat it into the fabric so it gets as far into it as possible. Let it sit overnight and then vacuum it all back up.

* Get Rid of it

This is not meant to be flip, but sometimes you just have to cut your losses. When cigarette smoke gets deeply enmeshed into the fabric of an ex-smokers favorite couch, there may be nothing that will ever get it out. Unless you enjoy reupholstering furniture, you might just have to throw it away. Better yet, sell it to a smoker.

Removing Cigarette Smoke Smell from Carpets

Carpets aren’t as hard as walls, but they’re still a lot of work.

* Rent a Shampooer

Most home improvement stores have carpet shampooers available for rental. Go pick one up, along with a bottle or so of shampoo, and get to work. A good carpet shampooer can remove the cigarette smell, but it may take several passes through each room to get it all. To make your job easier, sprinkle baking soda liberally over your entire carpet the night before you plan on shampooing, and vacuum it up just before using the carpet shampooer.

* Call in the Professionals

Get the carpets a serious and professional cleaning. Hire a carpet cleaning company that uses van-mount steam cleaners. Tell them exactly what your goal is so they can use the appropriate cleaning agent when they arrive. If you have furniture to de-smokify, make sure they use smaller upholstery attachments and not the huge vacuum-like wand they use on your carpets.

* Low Budget?

Fill a large tub with bicarbonate of soda (baking soda), add a few drops of essential oil and mix well. Lavender smells nice, but the flavor is up to you. Sprinkle the mixture liberally over the carpet, let it sit for at least four hours and then just vacuum it up. Repeat as necessary.

Cleaning Cigarette Smoke Residue from Walls

Cleaning a smoker’s house is a nightmare, brown and yellow stains will be on everything from the windows to that intricate crown molding. Unless you’re willing to hire somebody else for the task, get ready for a lot of work.

* Vinegar

Next to Italian salad dressings, this may be vinegar’s most important job. Even if you are going to paint the walls, you still need to clean them first. In a large bowl or bucket mix one cup of white vinegar for every two cups of warm water, then add a scoop of baking soda – it should fizz. Use a sponge mop or brush to wash down your walls and ceilings with it. This solution will make residue much easier to remove and should be easy on your paint too. Follow this up with a vinegar based window washer for windows (can be found in organic grocery stores), and your basic bubbly vinegar/baking soda mix on the window moldings.

* Paint

If you’re still not happy with the result, you can attempt the last step again, or just repaint your walls.

Removing Cigarette Smoke Smell from your Car

* Good old Vinegar

The same mixture of vinegar and baking soda that you used on the walls inside the house can work on the interior of the car (one cup of white vinegar for every two cups of warm water along with a good scoop of baking soda). Wash down the windows, plastic moldings, and metals with a generous amount on a sponge. Don’t use this on fabric, however. Treat fabric as you would carpet inside – saturate it with baking soda, spray with a diluted solution of essential oil and water (optional), let sit overnight, and vacuum.

* Cigarette Smoke Smell Home Remedies:

There are almost as many cigarette smell removal remedies as there are people. Some of the ideas appear to mask the smell with another more powerful odor rather than to remove, so be sure you are going to be happy with the result. Here are some of them:

o Fill a tub with vinegar and place it on the floor in the front seat, close the windows, open the floor vents and turn on the heat full blast. Let the car run in this state for an hour before removing the tub. Another version of this remedy requires hot summer weather and allowing the tub sit on the floor with the windows closed all day.

o Leave an opened bag of charcoal in the car overnight.

o Put a few drops of vanilla extract on a rag and toss it under the seat.

o Put a sliced apple in a cup and set it on the floor. Leave it until it shrivels.

o Sprinkle dry coffee grounds on the floor of the car, let them sit there for a few days and vacuum them up.

o Mix of apple sauce and cinnamon and put it into a jar with holes punched in the lid. Place the jar on the floor of the car.

Which ever method you try, be prepared for several re-applications. You are going to most likely need them. If you have any tips to make this easier, please share them with the rest of us using the form below. Good luck!

Next Quit Smoking Device

images-4Ever since the public became aware about the dangers of smoking a few decades ago, many people have found quitting the tobacco habit hard. Companies have been innovating and manufacturing smoking cessation products for many years now. From nicotine patches to gum, nicotine addicts have been using them to quit their habit.

Electronic cigarettes (also known as e-cigarettes and electric cigarettes)are the newest product on the market. They are designed to look and feel like real cigarettes, even down to emitting artificial smoke however they do not actually contain any tobacco. Users inhale nicotine vapour which looks like smoke without any of the carcinogens found in tobacco smoke which are harmful to the smoker and others around him.

The Electronic cigarette consists of a nicotine cartridge containing liquid nicotine. When a user inhales, a tiny battery powered atomizer turns a small amount of liquid nicotine into vapour. Inhaling nicotine vapour gives the user a nicotine hit in seconds rather than minutes with patches or gum. When the user inhales, a small LED light at the tip of the electronic cigarette glows orange to simulate a real cigarette.

The nicotine cartridges themselves come in various strengths. Most of the major brands, such as the Gamucci electronic cigarette have full strength, half strength and minimal strength. This is designed for people who want to quit smoking. As they get used to using the electronic cigarette, they can gradually reduce the strength they use until they quit.

The main advantages electronic cigarettes have over nicotine patches or gum is firstly, users have the nicotine hit much quicker and secondly, because a big reason why smokers fail to quit suing patches and gum is because they still miss the act of inhaling smoke from a cylindrical object. The electronic cigarette emulates that even down to the smoke.

The electronic cigarette is also beneficial from a financial perspective. A set of five nicotine cartridges costs around £8 and is equivalent to 500 cigarettes. Although the initial investment of an electronic cigarette kit of £50 may seem steep at first, users save money in the long run.

As with many popular products, there have been a great number of cheap Chinese imitations flooding the market. They are usually half the price of a branded electronic cigarette and look like the real thing as well. It is inadvisable to use these because they have not been subject to the same rigorous testing the official electronic cigarettes have and can potentially be highly damaging to the user’s health.

As electronic cigarettes become more and more popular, they are increasingly used to smoke in pubs and clubs with a smoking ban. Electronic cigarettes seem to be the next thing and may soon replace real cigarettes in clubs.
