Here is Why You Need Fresh Air in Your Home

In Mesa, AZ the open window season seems very short and summer comes all too soon. But fresh air is one of the most essential elements needed for sustaining life, and your overall health depends a great deal on the amount of fresh air you breathe. Unfortunately, fewer people are spending time outside. Most people today spend about 90% or their time indoors. If you work or live in a closed off area with little ventilation, you spend most of the day breathing air with a lower oxygen supply. This is why we highly recommend you open your windows and doors, and let some fresh air into your home.

Benefits of Fresh Air

Opening windows and doors for fresh air helps:

1. Draw out Toxins

When you open the windows and doors in your home you can remove pollutants stored up inside. One of the most dangerous toxins to be rid of is carbon monoxide. But opening the windows can also help cleanse your home of other pollutants like dust, mold, spores or off-gas from new paint and carpet.

2. Relieve Stress

Not just from fresh air, but certain smells from the outdoors can also help reduce anxiety and cut down on stress. Things like lavender and jasmine are well known, but also smells like cut grass or fresh rain can also increase relaxation and help you feel calm and happy.

3. Boost the Immune System

Fresh air literally makes you feel better. Close quarters in the office will expose you to any number of germs.

4. Eliminate Smells

If you have odor problems you don’t have to run out and buy all of the fancy room fragrances from the store. Those will just mask the odor and add more chemicals into the air of your home. The simplest thing to do is to open your windows and doors.

5. Reduce Condensation

The kitchen and bathrooms are most likely the worst places for condensation. That excess moisture can leach into your walls and wood and cause mold, warping, and rust. Instead, open your windows and doors for adequate ventilation. The air flow will help get rid of moisture.

6. Increase Energy

Fresh air is also fuel, and research shows that spending time outside in nature boosts energy in 90 percent of people. Now, you can’t always duck out for a walk. But you can open a window and connect with nature in that way.

7. Improve Concentration

Research shows that increased ventilation improves performance, especially for children. Just one more good reason to open up those windows and doors.
