Windows: To Close Or Not To Close
There’s a big debate when it comes to windows and air quality – should you keep your home’s windows opened or closed? While closing your windows provides warmth and saves energy, it also traps in pollutants and contaminates the air inside your home.
Here are a few reasons why some fresh air can do your home some good:
Increases oxygen levels in your home – The air supply in your home is limited and we don’t have a way to replace the missing ions and oxygen needed to inhale decontaminated air. Nature is constantly purifying the air outdoors, so by opening up your windows, you’re increasing your oxygen levels inside.
Creates fewer harmful emissions – If you’ve turned your AC unit off, you’re using less energy (and saving more money)! And by using less energy, you’re producing fewer harmful toxins!
Removes pollutants in your home – Your home can be filled with dust, debris, and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), so it comes as no surprise that indoor air is one of the top five environmental health concerns. Opening up your windows can help remove these toxins from your home.
Fresh air also…
-boosts your immune system.
-lowers your risk of dehydration.
-increases your energy levels.
-makes you happier.
-naturally cools your home.
