How Windows Help Air Quality In Your Home

September 15, 2020 by


The numerous wildfires in California are affecting the air quality outdoors. Health officials are recommending people stay indoors to prevent them from inhaling the smoke. But are your windows preventing air infiltration?

Air Infiltration

You might be wondering, “What is air infiltration?” It is the amount of air that passes through your windows. In other words, it’s air leakage.

How To Prevent Air Infiltration

You want to make sure that your windows are preventing air infiltration. To ensure you have the best results, your windows should be installed by a professional window replacement company.

Most homeowners automatically assume that having new windows means they get rid of air infiltration altogether, which is true if you choose the right window replacement company to get the job done.

Another thing to help prevent air infiltration is the quality of the windows you are investing in. This doesn’t mean that your windows will allow a significant amount of air leakage, but keep in mind that not all windows are created equal.
