Our own four walls should be a place where we can feel safe, relax, and recharge our batteries. Fresh air, light, air humidity, and temperature are the crucial factors for a healthy indoor climate.
This defines not only our general well-being, but also our physical and mental performance. Yet too often, the balance of this climate is disrupted; the air is either too hot or too cold, too dry or too moist, and mould forms in millions of households. The reason: wrong ventilation and heating behaviour.
Modern Aluks windows
Modern windows with integrated ventilation or separate ventilation systems – tailored precisely to the structural properties of your home – maintain a healthy indoor climate, automatically. You can hence strike the optimal balance between heating energy savings and fresh air supply. At the same time, effectively preventing the formation of mould.
A permanent component of the air we breathe, the spores; become a problem when they settle on wet surfaces in rooms. If there are no structural defects or damage from moisture, merely the right room temperature and an adequate supply of fresh air prove sufficient to reduce excess air humidity. You can take this in your own hands by (manually) ventilating frequently and properly, or you can enjoy the convenience of modern (automatic) ventilation devices.
Do not hesitate to contact us, your specialised window/door maker. Depending on the building fabric, insulation conditions, and other factors, we recommend the right, cost-effective solution for ventilating your home. So that you feel good all the time in your living/business space.
How to ventilate properly:
Always ventilate with the windows wide open, not tilted. ‘’Rush ventilation’’ is an effective method taking the least time. Depending on the time of year, ventilate all rooms every morning for twenty to thirty minutes, above all the bedrooms.
Repeat this rush ventilation two to three times a day for ten to fifteen minutes each.
Turn down the radiators beforehand to save energy.
In the same time, in unused rooms, the temperature should not fall below 15 °C so that the air can always absorb enough moisture.
