If the vents have a smoke smell to them, first, replace the filter in your HVAC system. Spray the filter with Fabreeze. Spray the vents with a spray bottle full of white vinegar. Then just run your ventilation system and allow the air to pass through the vents and the filter. You may need to re-spray the filter after an hour or two if it dries out and then you can repeat as many times as needed.
