Window screens and full screen doors not only prevent insects from invading your home, they are also good for nature. This is because of the freedom they give.
Having screens in your windows encourages you to open your windows. It gives you a certain comfort and peace of mind that it’s okay to open your windows to let the natural air outside to enter your home, without worrying about insects coming in your home. It’s like letting your home breathe.
When you open your windows, you are allowing the natural air outside to come inside to cool your home. You are taking advantage of the free cooling that is already provided by nature.
But air will not enter your home if you only have one opening, no matter how big. Air will only pass through your home if there is a window or any sort of opening at the opposite end. It’s called cross ventilation. That’s why you need also to install a full screen door in your front door and rear door to maximize the benefits of cross ventilation. With this setup, you can open your doors with the full screen doors closed and natural breeze can now pass through your home, making it cooler and more comfortable.
We all notice that when our home is fully closed, it feels really hot and humid inside. It is because the moisture in the air inside is trapped and it will be very humid. The more humid your home, the more chances for molds and other bacteria can grow inside. These can affect the health of your family. These can be prevented by providing screens to have the freedom to open your windows and exterior doors to lower down the humidity inside your home.
This is why all openable windows at BuHomes™ Breeze, a nature-friendly townhouse development in Amparo Caloocan, are already provided with screens. The front and rear doors of BluHomes™ Breeze are also provided with full screen doors.
Opening your windows will provide your home with free ventilation and lower down your use of air conditioners and electric fans. Your electric bills will be less and the more savings you will have. The less electricity you consume, the less pollutants and carbon dioxide are released to the environment and the better for nature. Screens in your windows and exterior doors will help you achieve that by having the freedom and peace of mind to open up your home to the outdoors and enjoy its benefits.
