How Your Windows Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Your home not only protects you from the weather but also from noise and outdoor air pollution. If your indoor air quality isn’t up to par, you can help improve it by utilizing your windows. Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey explains further.

Indoor Air Quality

Fresh Air Pushes Allergens Away

Some days, you may notice that there are a lot of dust particles and other allergens in your home. This can make breathing difficult and even trigger allergic reactions. The best way to go about removing allergens is to open your windows and let fresh air in. Open your windows on opposite sides of your home so that stale air is pushed out on one side as the other pulls in fresh air. Even if you live in busy areas, it is still a must to open your windows every once in a while.

Indoor Moisture Is Controlled

High levels of indoor humidity can have serious effects, including structural damage and mold growth due to wood decomposition. Areas of your home with high moisture content like the kitchen and bathrooms can easily attract termites, bugs and other pests. This is where windows definitely come in handy. Open them for just a few minutes to get rid of the indoor moisture, especially when you’re cooking food or taking a hot shower. To bolster indoor moisture control, you may invest in a dehumidifier.

Polluted Outdoor Air Can’t Enter Your Home

There will be days when outdoor air is bad and filled with too much pollution. Your windows are there to serve as a barrier between the outdoors and indoors. However, if your windows have cracks, the outdoor air may leak into your home. Repairs help to prevent this from happening, but if your windows are severely damaged due to age and deterioration, having them replaced is your best option.

When replacing your windows, always go for the option that gives you great energy efficiency and comfort. That’s where our windows equipped with Fibrex® framing material and High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass come in.
