As the weather starts to get chillier in Auckland, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to manage your asthma symptoms during the winter. For some, the solution is simple.
Double glazing your timber windows could reduce moisture and mould in your home, getting rid of the nasty allergens that are causing your symptoms. Read on to learn about the health benefits you can get from your windows!
Windows and Your Allergies
A big problem with regular glass windows is the build up of condensation that occurs during winter. This happens because of the difference in temperature between the inside and outside environments.
Condensation increases the moisture levels in the home, leading to a higher risk of mould and rot in your timber window frames. If you don’t have double glazed windows, there’s a good chance that moisture could be building up, causing those nasty allergies and asthma symptoms.
What’s more, regular windows simply don’t provide the same protection from the outside world. Pollution, pollen and other nasties could be making their way into your home, causing sneezing and difficulty breathing… You know the symptoms all too well!
So, what can you do about it? Double glazed windows could be the key to solving your problems.
Why Choose Double Glazing?
The two layers of glass in a double glazed window will keep the heat in and the cold out. The gas in between the panes virtually eliminates any condensation all year round. By keeping the moisture out, your timber frames will stay in tip top condition. You can forget about damp air, mould or rot in your home.
As for other pollutants, double glazed windows offer an extra barrier between you and the outside world. They keep the clean air in and any pollutants or pollen out. Everyone will be able to breathe easy with double glazed windows in the mix.
Making the Right Choice
Unfortunately, not all double glazed windows are made equal. If you’re thinking about retrofitting or installing new double-glazed windows, it’s important to do your research.
The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ, in partnership with National Asthma Council Australia, has launched its Sensitive Choice initiative. They’ll help you find reliable local companies that provide high-quality windows.
The best glass companies will install your new windows perfectly, maximising the benefits for you and your family.
