When you hit a long patch of cold or hot weather, it’s hard to stay inside all the time with the house all locked up. On the other hand, when you come across a lovely day in Portland, OR, you don’t want to stay cooped up inside either. Research shows that most people spend up to 90% of their time inside. While you can’t be outside all day on a nice day, you can enjoy fresh air through your replacement windows. Here are a few things that can help you decide when it’s time to find replacement windows for your home in Portland, OR.
-You want to let the fresh air in, but you simply can’t open the windows!
There’s nothing better than a cool, spring breeze or the smell of the air after it rains. As much as you want to enjoy the weather, you have things to do around the house. You might think you could get things done while you enjoy the fresh air by opening your windows, but your old windows have another idea. They are stuck, stuck, stuck. If you do manage to get one open, you might be worn out from the extra effort. If you have to wrestle with your windows just to get them to open or close, it’s time for replacement windows. Replacement windows will let the crisp outside airflow through your house in an effortless manner whenever you want.
-You’ve spent all winter inside with the house shut up. When the weather turns nice, you want to open the windows and improve the air quality of your home. The windows disagree.
Ventilation is good for the air quality in your home. After you have been cooped up inside for a whole season, there are a lot of pollutants and toxins as well as allergens in the air. These things can build up and accumulate over time. It’s good to let fresh air in so you can stop recycling the same air over and over again. Replacement windows allow you to freshen the air in your home whenever you please.
-Your home has a scent to it and it’s not all that pleasant.
After a gentle, Portland, OR rain, it’s nice to let the fresh scents of nature into the home. You can also air out some of the scents you aren’t fond of. Dirty laundry, anyone? The trees around your home smell much better than gym socks, that’s for sure. And your replacement windows can bring those pleasant, fresh, outdoor scents into your house whenever you want.
