It is always lovely when the weather cools down a bit to open a window and let the fresh outside air in your home. Breathing fresh air has many health benefits and well as removing stagnant air that has been trapped in your house.

Bringing in the breeze brings a lot of benefits to your health and your pocketbook. The best way to get the most out of these beautiful days is to create cross-ventilation.

In many cases, the air in our own homes can be more polluted than the air outside. After being sealed up for several months, our homes can finally "breathe" the first time the doors and windows are opened. When the old stagnant air leaves, it takes the dust and pollutants floating around in it. The result is a new fresh breeze adorned with nature's smells and the charming, warm air.

Of course, not all homes are alike, and sometimes it doesn't seem like the air is coming in at all. Creating cross-ventilation ensures cool air will come in, and warm air will flow out. The easiest way is to open windows and doors directly across from one another, and nature will take its course all on its own. The airflow will still find a way through your home even if the windows aren't opposing each other; however, you may want to help it, and a fan in you have one.

It is essential to have the proper window treatments that allow air to flow through the windows with ease. Brightline Blinds can help you find the perfect blinds for your home. Contact our office today!
