Air Authority Explains Why You Should Open Your Windows More Often

1. Improves Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air pollutants, such as pet dander, mold, mildew, dust, tobacco smoke, and household cleaning chemicals, can build up in your home. Blowing these pollutants through your air conditioning system may make these pollutants worse. Airborne pollutants can cause or worsen the symptoms of lung diseases and infections over time. Opening your windows for a few hours a day may help clean your indoor air, thereby making your home healthier for you and your family. 

2. Saves the Environment

Your HVAC system runs less when you open your windows at the right times during the day. Cooler morning breezes can lower the indoor temperature before a summer day, thereby saving on air conditioning usage. Warmer afternoon air on a sunny winter day can save on furnace usage. 

When your HVAC system runs optimally, you use less power, which helps the environment because you’re burning fewer fossil fuels. Air Authority’s residential service agreement helps keep your HVAC system running in top condition and at its highest efficiency thanks to periodic checks on the components of your air conditioning and furnace.

3. Lowers Your Utility Bills

When your heating or air conditioning runs less, you save money on your utility bills. Your savings add up, because your air conditioner and furnace are the appliances that use the most power on any given day. Keeping this system off for even two hours per day can have an effect on your utility bills over the years.

4. Reduces Wear and Tear on Your HVAC System

You want your HVAC system to last as long as possible. You save money by opening your windows more often not only because it lowers your utility bills, but it reduces the wear and tear on your air conditioning and furnace when you turn them off and they don’t run.
