4 Tips to Maximize Natural Home Ventilation

Believe it or not, you don’t always have to rely on air conditioners to cool down your home. According to the experts, you can easily do this by taking advantage of natural ventilation. According to experts, natural ventilation is a method where homeowners allow fresh outdoor air into their homes without utilizing air conditioning units and other mechanically driven devices. But how exactly can homeowners accomplish this?

4 Tips to Maximize Natural Home Ventilation

Windows installer Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis wants you to keep in mind these tips to maximize natural home ventilation:

1. Use Proper Window Orientation – One way you can harness natural ventilation into your home is through proper window orientation. According to experts, if you want to take advantage of natural ventilation, you should place your windows on the north and south areas of your home for optimal cross-ventilation, which encourages natural breeze to come into your home and cool it down, especially during the summer months.

2. Install Tall Windows – If you want to take advantage of natural ventilation, home window replacement experts recommend that you install tall windows in your home. This is because windows that are at least 3.6 feet or more can help indoor air movements and reduce the heat load on your ceilings at the same time.

3. Add Transitional Spaces – On the other hand, if you’re building your home from the ground up and you want to incorporate natural home ventilation, then consider adding transitional spaces such as courts, balconies and atriums into your home as they can encourage improved air flow.

4. Add Wind/Air Deflectors – Finally, you can also consider adding wind/air deflectors on your window to harness natural home ventilation. According to professionals, when you install deflectors on your window, they can redirect air motion to enter your home, allowing passive cooling to take place.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
