A well-designed home is expected to deliver comfort, safety, efficiency and utility to its residents. Many homeowners in Australia tackle the sweltering and humid conditions of summer by installing insect screens on their doors and windows, ensuring comfort and safety for their families.

Here are 5 reasons to install insect screens in your home:

Fresh air and cool breeze

Enjoy fresh air and natural cool breezes by confidently keeping your doors and windows open but suitably protected with insect screens. Breathing in fresh air is known to boost your immune system, refresh your whole body and rejuvenate your mind and soul. Fresh air is particularly recommended for those who spend a large part of their working hours in air-conditioned environments.

Keep the bugs out

Bugs, pests and other vermin have a habit of sneaking into the house when you least expect it. So that an open window or door is not an open invitation to these bugs, install insect screens that allow you to enjoy the fresh air while keeping all insects out. Relax in comfort without worrying about bites and stings. By keeping these bugs outside, you also minimise the use of chemical repellents inside your home, contributing to a healthier indoor environment.

Reduce air-conditioning costs

With your doors and windows suitably protected by insect screens, you can let in the cool breezes to create a comfortable indoor environment without relying on air-conditioners to bring down the temperature. Insect screens will save you money in the long run with lower energy bills.

Increase the value of your home

Insect screens add value and appeal to a home, especially when you are selling your home. People are actively seeking homes that have indoor-outdoor entertaining areas. Retractable screens from Freedom Retractable Screens are perfect for bringing the outdoors in and creating a comfortable entertaining area that buyers will love.

Increase hygiene in your home

Lack of fresh air and ventilation can cause damp to build up, potentially leading to a mould problem. Such conditions can cause bacterial growth or even a bug infestation inside the house. Stale indoor environments can also lead to lowered immune systems, causing illnesses.
