Don't know where you live but most towns have duct cleaning companies who specialize in cleaning and sanitizing heating and A/C ducts. Some have the option to deodorize them as well. Also, the nicotine smell is imbedded in the carpet as well and it needs to be cleaned and deodorized. Every time you turn on the furnace or A/C the "return" vents recirculate the foul odor. Any other cloth areas present the same problem and should either be washed or sprayed with a deodorizer like Febreeze frequently. Ionized air cleaners do work if you get the right brand. Check Consumer Reports for reviews.

You really want to get a HEPA air cleaners because it effectively removes a wide range of airborne particles and allergens and they also effectively remove very small particles such as cigarette smoke. It removes 97.5% of all particles less than 3 MICRONS such as pollen, dust, animal dander, dust mites and molds. This model below is what hospitals use. The very BEST value consumer reports model is the little known Alen A350 air cleaner is meant for smaller rooms than the IQAir (400 to 800 square feet versus 1,000), but in tests, it removes nearly as many allergens from the air. It's also a little quieter. Like the IQAir air purifier, the Alen uses a true HEPA filter along with a pre-filter and a carbon filter for odors. While reviews say the IQAir is the best you can buy($700), the Alen A350 air purifier comes close for a lot less. Annual replacement filter costs are about $80. The Alen A350 also comes with a lifetime warranty. I'd like to get one myself.
