Summer is on its way, and with the weather heating up, indoor air quality could be compromised. Residents can be left feeling hot and groggy if there isn’t enough natural air coming in.
Natural ventilation improves your general quality of life which provides a healthier mind, body and positive sense of well-being. With this in mind, it’s clear to see how there is no better substitute for fresh air.
So what are some of the other great reasons to allow more fresh air into your home?
Breathing in more oxygen significantly raises serotonin in the body — a chemical that lightens your mood and promotes a sense of happiness and relaxation.
Stronger immune system
Fresh air helps the body to fight off illness! Oxygen makes your white blood cells stronger so you can kill germs and bacteria. A stronger immune system will reduce the risk of feeling poorly.
Wake up and stop fatigue in its tracks! Feeling hot and stuffy can make you feel drained and lethargic. A simple dose of fresh air will leave you feeling more invigorated and alive.
