A fresh breeze doesn’t just feel nice, it’s a key component of good health. Our bodies are composed of cells that rely on a steady supply of oxygen to thrive. When you breathe in, your body’s cells take that air and put it to work. Then combine it with water and nutrients to make energy. Keep reading to learn how Texas window screens bring the benefits of fresh air right into your home!
Just like eating a double cheeseburger won’t give cells the same nutrient boost as — say — a salad loaded with lean protein, stale air doesn’t supply cells with the full benefits that come from fresh air.
What are the benefits of fresh air?
Fresh air does so much good for your health, we could fill a book listing all the benefits. But somebody else already has, so for this blog post, we’ll stick to the basics. Here are just a handful of positive things fresh air does for your body:
- Strengthens your immune system — When your white blood cells have enough oxygen to work harder, they’re better at protecting your body from disease.
- Improves digestion — Fresh air enables your body to digest food more efficiently.
- Helps regulate blood pressure and your heart rate — With fresh air, the bloodstream doesn’t have to work as hard to get oxygen to the rest of your body.
- Boosts your mood — Oxygen positively affects serotonin levels in the brain, helping you to be happier.
- Cleans your lungs — Clean air keeps your lungs’ pathways clear, allowing them to fully dilate and cleanse toxins more thoroughly.
- Clears your mind — Your brain requires oxygen to focus. When it gets better quality oxygen, you experience a higher ability to concentrate.
If you’ll pardon the pun, it’s clear to see that oxygen is one powerful element. More clean air means a happier, healthier, longer life.
Why isn’t the air already in my home good enough?
Air in a home or office with closed windows and doors is stale air, which is not nearly as great for your health as fresh air. Because the air is contained, the same air is re-circulated. And after you inhale that air, you exhale the waste product carbon dioxide, lowering the overall oxygen content in the room and reducing the air quality.
The stale air will, of course, continue to be breathable, and the occasional gust of fresh air will be brought in by opening and closing a door as someone enters or leaves your home, but it’s not ideal for receiving the full benefits of oxygen.
What does this have to do with Texas window screens?
Screens allow you to enjoy the health benefits of fresh air without letting unwanted pests into your home, which can have the opposite effect on your health. It’s well known that insects like mosquitos and fleas carry disease. Without a barrier between your family and their bites, the benefits of fresh air would be overshadowed by the chance of contracting an infection.
