Your home is your sanctuary. You put just the right amount of thought into every aspect of your home — like decorating, painting, designing, organizing, and even cleaning. While your windows are one of those things that enhance the appearance of your home, they provide more value than simply that. Windows offer noteworthy health benefits, given they function as they were intended. The professionals at Window Guardians can inspect your windows to determine whether or not they need replacing by checking for the following signs:
If any of the above indications are evident in your windows, it may be time to replace them. On the upside, installing new windows will benefit you and your family in ways you may not have imagined. Let’s discuss how replacing your old windows can positively impact your health:
A Healthy Dose of Vitamin D
Vitamin D is important for promoting healthy bone growth. While this fact might make you want to lounge indoors and take in the sun’s rays, old and worn out windows are not designed with the technology needed to block out harmful UV Rays. At Window Guardians, we work with industry-leading window manufacturers that use the latest technologies to maximize the benefits of new windows.
Better Air Quality
When you want fresh air, the first place that comes to mind is outdoors. Your home is likely filled with dust, allergens, pollen, pet dander and possibly much more. Updating your windows with brand new ones will allow adequate air flow throughout your home. The design of newer windows makes it so that your home receives better airflow, optimizing the channels through which air can move. The fresh outdoor air will cleanse your home of harmful contaminants, in turn, improving the overall air quality inside your home.
Those who suffer from anxiety or depression often struggle to get out of the house. Installing larger windows, such as awnings, bow and bay windows, or even specialty windows can help to increase their exposure to sunlight. Sunlight exposure has been linked to the brain’s increased release of the serotonin hormone. Serotonin can boost your mood and help you feel focused and calm. With the right windows, you can help produce these mood-lifting benefits.
At Window Guardians, we carry a number of modern, upgraded window styles that will provide you with the above health benefits for decades. By replacing your old, worn out windows with new ones, you’ll experience an increase in the overall comfort of your home.
