Catching the breeze during warm Indiana days can be difficult if your home doesn’t have enough ventilation. While you can always turn up the dial of your cooling system, this will result in high energy bills. You’ll also be open to health risks since you’ll be breathing conditioned air the whole time.
Fortunately, there are a number of easy ways to improve the amount of ventilation in your living spaces. BEE Window®, you expert in window replacement in Indianapolis, Indiana, shares some of them.
1. Invest in more operable windows. This provides your home’s occupants with better access to healthy, natural air. In fact, every room in your home should have at least two operable units. BEE Window can help you through our double-hung windows by Infinity® from Marvin. Aside from their classic and simple design, these units feature two operable sashes. You can open both of them at the same time. This allows warm, stale air to escape through the top, and lets in cooler, healthier air through the bottom.
2. Use cross-ventilation to best effect. This involves placing window openings on opposite walls in line with prevailing winds. Our range of replacement windows in Lafayette, Indiana will be perfect for cross-ventilation. Our Infinity from Marvin gliding windows can provide positive flow of air through your home’s interior.
They allow breezes into the home from one window, enhancing air quality as it passes through the room, while pushing poor air outside through the other. Just make sure that there are no hindrances to this, including closed interior doors and large furniture blocking the windows.
3. Direct and control ventilation with casement windows. This window style is on par with double-hung in providing excellent natural ventilation. Our casement windows have hinges on the side that lets you swing the unit fully outward. This wide opening allows healthy, fresh air to enter your home, improving indoor air quality and resulting in cooler rooms. You can also angle these windows so you can easily direct breezes inside.
