Smoke, dust and pollen particles are very fine and can cause health issues such as eye and throat irritations and potentially aggravate existing lung and heart conditions, bronchitis, emphysema, asthma and thunderstorm asthma, particularly in the young and elderly. And well… a draughty home, in any season is going to play havoc with temperature control and unnecessary higher energy costs.

Just to let you know that your draught protection works to keep out smoke from coming into the building. Although it is thick and nearly dark outside in mid-morning, the factory and living space is clear and breathable. Our staff can still work in comfort albeit with the lights on! Thank you ecoMaster. We never thought of smoke protection when we put the draught strips in. Big bonus.

Before we start… here’s some of The MOST Important Reasons To Care About The Air Quality In And Around Your Home

Just because it is outside, doesn’t mean it has to be inside.

There are many reasons why you should protect your family and loved ones from poor air quality getting inside your home.

1. You don’t need to be near a fire zone –  smoke haze travels and can linger for days

Recently during our bush fire crisis, some Australian States unfavourably achieved #1 world rankings for the poorest air quality in the world. This is an issue many of us have never had to deal with before, but we need to be informed and do what we can to look after our health and wellbeing and those that we care about.

 2. Smoke particles are fine but aggravating

Smoke haze can adversely impact existing health conditions such as eye and throat irritations, lung and heart conditions, bronchitis, emphysema, asthma and thunderstorm asthma, particularly in the young and elderly.

 3. Smoke can stain and damage your furnishings

Protect your furnishings, curtains and carpets from smoke damage by stopping it lingering in your home. Many people have a sensitivity to being in close proximity to a cigarette smoker and avoid it where possible. Don’t invite smoke into your home, if you do not mind it being there.

Each chimney is like an open window. The easiest thing is to plug it from inside. * If you have a gas fire in the fireplace it is not legal or safe to seal the chimney. Have the gas fire decommissioned before you close up your chimney

Evaporative cooling can be great but it does make your home like a sieve. Sealing you cooling outlets on the ceiling is the way to stop the leakage. Simply folding over the louvres is not enough.

There are several methods:

  1. Get magnetic covers from heatsaver.com.au
  2. Take out the louvre squares and wrap them in cling film before putting them back in.
  3. Tape white card (to match the ceiling or any coloured card) to the perimeter of the outlets or simply cover them with clear contact.

Exhaust fans are helpful in circulating the air around a room, but they are also great big holes in your ceiling. Air and smoke can easily pass either way past the fan blades. Preventing this is really important for smoke prevention

The easy way to fix this is to install a Draft Stoppa over the top of the fan. An alternate method is to replace the fan with one that has a Draft Stoppa built-in.

The vast majority of split and ducted systems in homes do not have a fresh air cycle so they are safe to use.

Wall-mounted box style systems and a few special split systems have the ability to draw air from outside.

If you have an older style in wall box air conditioning system then set it to “Recirculate” e.g stop it drawing air in from the outside

If you have one of the few split systems that have the capability of a fresh air cycle then be sure to disable that.

Some windows can be really draughty. At the top of the list are the old-time sash windows which often rattle even when closed.

Older awning windows e.g the ones that wind out on the bottom and casement window e.g the ones that are hinged on the side like a door, can also sometimes be pretty leaky.

Draught proofing in a way that still allows the windows to operate as before is ideal.

Taping windows also works, but of course, you will not be able to operate the windows and you will have a sticky mess to deal with at some stage.

Wall vents should be sealed up unless you have a gas appliance which needs an air supply for safe operation. If in doubt, send us a picture of your appliance to support@ecomaster.com.au, and we will let you know.

Floor heating outlets are sometimes not well sealed to the floor around the perimeter.

Lift the register out and take a look around the perimeter of the duct adaptor. It should be a tight fit with the floorboards. Any gaps should be sealed.

If you have decommissioned your gas heating then all of the outlets should be permanently sealed.

Draught proofing internal doors can be an effective way to eliminate some holes in your home. This is most usually used for wet areas such as Laundry, Bathroom, Toilet and Ensuite.

If you have exhaust fans or heat lamp units which are very difficult to treat, then a good strategy is to draught-proof the door and generally keep it closed.

Products You Need

A really simple and inexpensive way to draught-proof an internal door is to use EMV on the perimeter and RP2A on the bottom.

If you want to go the whole hog then use Draught Dodgers for Doors for the perimeter

External doors can be the main culprit for letting smoke into your home. Many doors can be mishung leaving gaps that will let air in and out unnoticed. Internal doors can significantly help in creating zones in your home to keep heat or cool in, and at times of smoke haze, strive to limit where it can enter your most important rooms

9. Gaps & Cracks – Skirting boards and architraves

Often there are gaps in your home that you are not even aware of.

Some of the common ones include:

  • Gaps between the skirting boards and the floor or the walls.
  • Gaps between the architraves e.g the timber around windows and the wall. Check the top architrave and the bottom if it’s not on the floor.
  • Gaps around the perimeter of a cathedral ceiling.
  • Gaps around the perimeter of feature brick walls.

If you have filters in your air conditioning systems, air purifiers and CPAP machines, clean them (by following the appliance instructions). If you have an air purifier, ensure it has a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arresting) filter as used in hospitals and clinical settings as they are most effective at trapping allergens and pollutants.

There are sometimes other holes in your home – we all have them!

Places to look include:

  • Under sinks and vanities for gaps between the pipes and cupboard or wall.
  • If you have gas central heating, check inside the return air space.
  • The top of older oblong skylights. Often the skylight metal flange is perforated and sometimes the side walls are not well sealed to the skylight and leak into the roof.
  • The space above the fridge behind the overhead cupboard. Often there are gaps into the roof.

Larger gaps can be filled with Expanding Foam or stuffed with steel wool.

You can also caulk with silicone or Ultraclear but you might need a couple of passes for larger gaps.

Tape the top of skylights but be sure to clean very well first.

The fridge cavity can be easily treated with a Chimney Draught Stopper. Treat it as if it’s a chimney.
