Closed smoking rooms

    Smoking rooms are normally created by floor-to-ceiling partitions that separate the smoking occupants from non-smokers outside and are equipped with an outside vented exhaust fan. The smoker can be sure to block off any cold air returns and turn the fan on when he or she is smoking a cigarette. Once a smoking routine or personal smoking room has been established for the resident, an air purifier may be brought in to help the air inside the home. Since the smoke is isolated, air purifiers will be much more effective at removing other contaminants as well as any smoke particles that might still be present. If Purdue University creates these smoke rooms on campus to support the new regulation, smokers would consider smoking in the closed rooms instead of outside. Although this is not the way to eliminate second smoke completely, it would reduces  most of the smoke in the air.
