Perks of Passive Ventilation

Even with the cold winter season coming around, there are numerous ways to cut back on your monthly energy bills, even when heating costs are at an all-time high this season.

Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis, one of the top window installation companies, share the benefits of passive ventilation here.

Passive Ventilation

How Does Passive Ventilation Work?

Passive ventilation utilizes your home’s windows to allow fresh air in, and drive stale air out. Most openings in your home can contribute to passive ventilation, like your doors, vents and other openings. However, positioning is key for your openings so that passive ventilation can work. This is because they can determine how much cool air can circulate in your home.

Things to Consider for Passive Ventilation to Work

It isn’t difficult to pull off passive ventilation for your home, especially if you have gotten a quality window and door replacement project. You can simply do this by opening large windows in your home to allow a cool breeze into your home, and opening windows above and beneath you. It’s also important to work with a skilled window contractor who has the knowledge and experience to tackle projects that heavily rely on passive ventilation. They can propose a plan such as renovating walls to accommodate high vents and additional openings.

To reap and notice the benefits of passive ventilation, your home should be ventilated for around 15 minutes, all days of the week. Make sure that you don’t block off openings like your windows and doors. You don’t have to open all of your windows, and you can choose to make use of your home’s biggest windows, such as side-opening windows to allow the breeze in.

"Great widows. We bought an older home, built in the mid 70's, it had the original widows. They were ugly didn't lock and leaked like a sieve. Our bedroom was always way colder in the winter and way hotter in the summer. The windows have only been in a couple weeks and I can tell the difference. The bedroom is the same temperature as the rest of the house. They look great from the inside and out. Our salesman Phillip was awesome!! The insulation was quick and professional. I have 5 dogs and they were great with them and made sure the dogs didn't get out. They cleaned up everything, we couldn't even tell they had been here. The only thing that was a problem was the time it took to get the windows. Although it wasn't their fault. The shipping ports were closed and they couldn't get all the parts needed. But it was worth the wait. I just ordered new front door and sliding back door from them. Can't wait to get them."
