Why You Should Open Your Windows

Leaving the windows open may oftentimes be the only solution most homeowners consider doing when it’s hot. Although it isn’t always the case, to some, it works. But is it a good idea? The answer to that is yes. Here’s why.

  • Fresh air flows through your home. One of the fundamental benefits of opening your windows is allowing cool, fresh air to flow through your living space. It is likely that your house has been closed up since the previous spring season, so swinging your windows open for some crisp, garden-fresh air is a smart way to let your home breathe.

  • Natural light comes inside. With the help of your existing or replacement windows, you can increase the illumination inside your home. It is worth noting that sunlight is beneficial for your wellbeing, so not only it will be helpful for your daily routines, but your health as well.

  • It increases energy efficiency. If you’re looking for ways to save on your monthly utility expenses, then opening your windows is the way to go. You don’t need to use your cooling unit as much when you open your windows. During the summer months, you can open your windows instead of operating your air conditioning unit. 

  • Excessive humidity escapes. Too much moisture can not only compromise your health, but also damage your personal belongings. By opening your windows in the kitchen or bathroom, when the outside air is less humid than the inside air, you are letting unwanted moisture escape.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
