open windowsWith winter slowly winding down we have spring and summer weather surely right around the corner. That means warmer temperatures and for most people a more proactive approach to cleaning inside and out. This is the time of the year when you should start opening your windows and doors in order to get some good airflow through the house. If you have troubles simply opening windows then that is a whole another conversation where replacement windows may be necessary. You should have no problem easily opening your windows nowadays so don’t settle for less. As well, if you can’t even open your windows there is a good chance they are unsightly and may be letting drafts into the house when they are closed.

Whether your current windows work great or you do get new windows, here are some of the main benefits for letting fresh air flow through your house:

Fresh Air:  This is extremely obvious but it does need to be stated. There is nothing like breathing in nice fresh spring air. Your house has been closed up since the previous fall so swing open your doors and windows for some fresh air in the house.

Sunlight: If your windows and doors are closed it’s more difficult to enjoy the sunlight. Sunshine has a wide range of health benefits such as increasing vitamin D production and reducing the symptoms of depression.

Cut down on your A/C: So many people rush to locking up there house and cranking their A/C bills. You may need your A/C during the hot days of summer but during spring, try turning it off and saving some money on your energy bills.

Letting out Humidity: Kitchens, bathrooms and us humans produce humidity. By opening your windows and doors during the spring time it will make it feel so much better inside.

Feel Better/Enjoy your view: From clearing out the stuffiness in your home and the dry, A/C air to truly being able to enjoy the surrounding of your home you will overall feel much better. It kind of gives you a sense of the world outside of your house even when you’re inside!

So, once it really starts to feel more like spring take a chance and open up your house to mother nature and some beautiful fresh air. You’ll feel much better and so will your family.
