Should I Leave My Windows Open All Day?

Posted on October 9th, 2020 by Devine Bros

We’re at that weird in between period when the mornings are fairly chilly and the afternoons are pleasant. Not only is it a struggle to find the right clothes to wear during this time, but also many homeowners have that constant debate on the right way to keep your home comfortable. So, the easiest solution is to just open up the windows around your home and let nature do its job. However, there could be a few consequences to leaving your windows open all day long. 

Pollen Problems

People with allergies and asthma should probably consider not leaving their windows open all day long, since contaminates could make their way into your home and lower your air quality. Having them open a few times a day won’t hurt, but avoid leaving them open all day or all night long. 

Natural Temperature Control

One of the good consequences of having your windows open is that you can use natural temperature to cool your home. Autumn is that strange period that makes most homeowners unsure if they should have their AC or heating running. So, the perfect solution is to rely on autumn winds to keep your home comfortable and cool. Plus, it’s a great way to feel the full embrace of a new season.

Sneaky Critters

If you’re not too careful, open windows could be an open invitation for bugs and other critters to get into your home. This is especially true for windows without screens. However, if your windows do have them, make sure none of the screens are broken in any areas. Not only that, but sealing vulnerable areas around your windows and doors will help keep creepy crawlers out too.
