Many factors affect your home’s indoor air quality. That is why many companies are developing and manufacturing products that can help improve the air quality in any home. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Portland offers tips on doing that in your own home.
Ventilate Your Kitchen
Cooking can be a major source of indoor air pollutants, especially if you are using a gas stove. Research shows that cooking a single meal on a gas stove can produce levels of nitrogen dioxide that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers unhealthy. Fortunately, we offer window replacement in Salem, Oregon that can help improve your home’s indoor air quality. We can install casement windows in your kitchen that you can open outward to allow fresh air in to fill your kitchen. They are also easy to clean from inside your home.
Avoid Toxic Products
Refrain from using products that contain too much volatile organic compounds or VOCs. Look for products marked with “low VOCs” and make sure to open your windows and to use exhaust fans when using these products.
Replace Your Old Windows
If your windows have been with you for over 20 years, then they are almost certainly due for replacement. Old windows can be drafty and can cause discomfort to your household. To prevent that, you can count on us to provide you with replacement windows in Portland, Oregon that can improve your home’s indoor air quality.
They come with insulated frames and glass that can help reduce heat transfer in and out of your home. We also have years of experience that ensures that the windows we install are airtight. We also apply insulated foam in the small gap between your new windows and your home’s frame to keep drafts from entering your home. These features will help lessen your reliance on your HVAC units, and save you money and energy.
