Monthly Chronicle - - Home & Living -

Seal gaps in doors, win­dows, skirt­ing boards and cor­nices with a sim­ple caulk­ing gun - a tube hold­ing sil­i­cone or la­tex used to bond met­als, glass, wood or ce­ramic sur­faces Seal wall and ceil­ing pen­e­tra­tions such as down­lights, power out­lets, air-con­di­tion­ing and man­holes and roof space ac­cess hatches Fit draught-proof­ing strips to doors such as brush or foam seals Duct ex­haust fans to out­side and in­stall non-re­turn baf­fles - these are vents which let air out only one way. So in a bath­room or kitchen ex­haust the vent ex­hausts air out­side but doesn’t let air in when not in use.
