One simple way to keep a safer and healthier home is to maintain good indoor air quality (IAQ). This can be achieved by changing your air filters regularly, which prevents allergens from circulating throughout your home, or by running an air purifier, which works to capture and eliminate pollutants and bacteria that lead to health risks. But sometimes, the most obvious solution is also the most effective. How about just keeping your windows open?
Windows Improve IAQ Through Natural Ventilation
Keeping your windows closed insulates your home against extreme outdoor temperatures. But this also means that allergens, such as dust, dander and pollen, will remain trapped inside your home. There’s also the matter of moisture buildup, which makes indoor air more difficult to breathe while also encouraging the growth of mold — with its spores also contributing to poor IAQ.
Try leaving your windows open for at least half an hour every day and you’ll notice a positive difference in indoor air quality. As fresh, cooling breezes enter your home and push warm, polluted air out, you’ll be less exposed to any allergy triggers and health risks associated with poor IAQ. And the best part? Natural ventilation via windows doesn’t require the use of a mechanical system, allowing you to save energy.
