One of the most unheralded benefits of window replacement is increased natural ventilation. If you use your windows to maximize the air flow in your home, it will be a much healthier and more comfortable place all year-round.
At All States Home Improvement, we use our fiberglass and vinyl windows to harness the benefits of natural ventilation in your home, which include the following:
Simply opening your windows helps increase air circulation inside your home. The breeze naturally ventilates your rooms and pushes the hot indoor air out. This works best if you regularly get cool breezes. Of course, the extent of this benefit depends on the number of windows in a room and what direction they’re facing.
With thoughtful window design and arrangement, you might not need to use an air conditioner to stay comfortable during the hottest months. Opening your windows could suffice to beat the heat, saving you money on your energy costs.
Preventing Excessive Humidity
Windows are excellent vents. As they allow the cool, dry drafts in, they also provide an escape route for the moist, indoor air. This is why it’s wise to use operating windows in moisture-heavy spaces, such as the kitchen and the bathroom. Keeping them open helps keep indoor humidity under control, preventing condensation and the host of problems it causes.
Improving Indoor Air Quality
Windows are natural air purifiers as well. Believe it or not, poor indoor air quality is actually more common than you think. Enclosed spaces prevent pollutants, like organic volatile compounds, from escaping. This puts your household at risk of breathing them in unknowingly and causing health problems. Improving natural ventilation with replacement windows will allow fresh drafts to come in and harmful elements to go out.
