We all know that having windows in our Louisville homes are good for a number of different reasons. But did you know the more windows you have, the better these reasons get?
More Windows Means More Light
Adding to the number of windows that you already have in your Louisville home increases the amount of light you can let in during the day. There are 3 great things about this increase in light.
One, it’s free; it doesn’t cost you anything to open your window treatments to let the sunlight in your home. Two, it saves you money; more natural light means you don’t have to turn on the electric lights in your house to be able to see better. Three, with having more windows you increase the total amount of light coming in from the outside, so even on a cloudy day you still would rarely need to turn on the electric lights in your home.
More Windows Mean Fewer Fans and Less Air Conditioning
Having more windows that open in your Louisville home helps to keep the inside of the home naturally cooler during the warmer months. Having multiple windows open, especially on opposite sides of the room or the house, creates a natural cross breeze that moves the air around in the house and all without having to pay more to the utility company for running the air conditioner or fans.
More Windows Means Fewer Trips to the Doctor
More windows in your home can also improve your health in two different ways. First, with more light coming into your home from the increased amount of windows, you are less likely to become depressed in the colder months when you usually get less sunlight. This depression is call Seasonal Affective Disorder and is caused by lack of natural sunlight. It is more prevalent in the colder months because that is when we keep ourselves indoors the most.
Second, more windows in your Louisville homes gives you a chance to air out your home better to decrease the chance of illness. It used to be thought that we get sick in the winter because of the cold air. However, this is not the case.
We get sick more in the winter because we keep our houses shut up without ventilation, allowing the viruses and bacteria that get us sick to continue to circulate. With more windows in your home, you can open up the all of the windows for a brief period of time to get fresh air in your home and let the bad air out.
More Windows Mean less Art Work to Buy
When you have more windows to look out of, the outside world is your own personal and constantly changing piece of art work to enjoy. So why buy additional art to decorate your walls when all you have to do with a window is open the window treatment?
